An expert is supposed to be someone who has a comprehensive and authoritarian knowledge of or skill in a particular area. In many situations we accept what people say simply because they are saying what we want to be the truth. An indoctrinated person will not question the statement because they have been taught to accept all that conforms to their belief system. An educated person will say I must do my own research to ensure that what they are saying is correct and thus my belief system is still correct.
We see so many pundits, who claim to be experts, speaking on television, being quoted in newspapers, and pontificating on social media outlets that are believed by the indoctrinated and not checked by the educated.
MSNBC contributor Donny Deutsch reacted to a report (from an anonymous source) claiming President Donald Trump discussed invoking martial law in the Oval Office of the White House to invalidate Joe Biden’s win in the 2020 presidential election over claims of voter fraud.
Deutsch said during “Morning Joe” that Trump is trying to put an end to the “Madisonian democracy” because he is racist. He presented the “Muslim ban,” Trump’s comments about Mexicans, and his policies aimed at China as proof.
“Morning Joe”, another self-proclaimed expert failed to correct Deutsch. Madison strongly opposed democracy. His opposition was for the very reasons the left in the United States is trying to convince Americans that we are a democracy.
This is what Madison said about democracy:
“Democracies have been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death.”
“Measures are too often decided, not according to the rules of justice and the rights of the minor party, but by the superior force of an interested and overbearing majority.”
“Democracy is the most vile form of government.”
“Hence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths. Theoretic politicians, who have patronized this species of government, have erroneously supposed that by reducing mankind to a perfect equality in their political rights, they would, at the same time, be perfectly equalized and assimilated in their possessions, their opinions, and their passions.”
In this last statement, Madison is not only denouncing democracy but also telling us that collectivism is also erroneous. Yes, Madison told us that what the Democrats are proposing this very day is doomed to failure.
For Deutsch and “Morning Joe” to even insinuate James Madison, the Father of the Constitution” in any way shape or form favored democracy is a travesty to the memory of such a great American who believed in individualism and despised any and all forms of collectivism (Marxism, communism, socialism, progressives, Democrats of today, - all virtually the same).
WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT, I WOULD HOPE ALL AMERICANS WOULD ASK. This is critical to the future of the United States if we are to remain a free society that champions individual liberties for all. We were founded as a Constitutional Republic. A Republic is a form of government that is established to protect the rights of all, even those in the minority. In a Republic, the individual right to practice the religion of your choice, to speak freely without being demonized, ostracized, or censored, or to be free to assemble without being disrupted and beaten are always protected. Of course, there are many other individual rights that are also protected in the Constitution, specifically in the Bill of Rights, and then the 9th amendment tells us there are individual rights that are not specified but are still protected.
Every time these so-called experts such as Deutsch or “Morning Joe” put forth these false statements trying to convince Americans that our founders agreed with the tyrannical aspirations of the modern day left, they are exposing their real goals. Our founders established a nation that was designed to protect individual rights. They understood that government and democracy were and are the enemies of individual rights. We were told we were given a Republic and it was up to us to keep it. These are exactly what the left opposes today.
We are failing in that assignment of keeping our Republic. People like “Morning Joe”, and Deutsch are misleading the American public. These leftist activists have been advocating for democracy and big government simply because they are advocates for collectivism. The founders were absolute opponents of collectivism and total proponents of individualism. The collectivist advocates adhere to the collectivist maxim that “the ends always justify the means”, even if those means are lying to the American public to believe that our founders supported the very policies the collectivist supports, the very policies that can only destroy freedom and liberty and bring about a Marxist tyrannical state.
