Why founding fathers despised democracy

Jim Huntzinger:

Plato wrote in The Republic, “And so tyranny naturally arises out of democracy.

The Founding Fathers despised democracies.  They desired democratic principles, but not a democracy.  As Plato decrees above, a democracy can easily be commandeered to establish a totalitarian state.  The Founders inherently understand this, and wholly rejected forming a democracy.

Democrats are skeptical about the USMCA; they shouldn’t be

Congress will soon vote on the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), a landmark trade pact finalized by all three nations last November. This deal is a historic victory for workers. It would guarantee fairer pay through wage requirements, ensure safe working environments, and strengthen workers’ rights to unionize for better benefits.

Steve Sherman:

President Ronald Reagan and Donald J. Trump have many things in common. One is the idea that we need to be a strong nation and we secure peace through strength.

The problem with pretending

Gil Gutknecht:

Let’s all pretend that our friends on the Left love our country as much as we do. Pretend that they really want a strong economy and more jobs, especially for women and minorities. That the last thing they want is a recession which would hurt millions of working families. We can imagine that secretly they are pleased that we finally have an American president who is standing up to Chinese trade abuses, a President who is actually fighting for our interests.

Kurt Schlichter: “Climate change” is a hoax

I hate science, evidently, because I’m woke to the manifest truth about what the leftist elite currently calls “climate change.” It is the second most staggering fraud ever perpetrated upon the American people after the media’s promotion of the unstoppable candidacy of Beto (who is a furry). Like some suckers still do, I once believed that “science” was a rigorous process where you tested theories and revised those theories in response to objective evidence.

Michael Reagan: America tunes out demented Dems

It’s too bad for America that CNN’s seven-hour town hall on climate change was such a rating disaster.

If twenty times as many viewers had tuned in Wednesday night, about 22 million Americans today would have a real clear idea what a bunch of leftwing nut-jobs are running in the Democrat presidential primary.
