    Ah gee @Rex looks like another elected democrat has been arrested. Seems the party of the people is just a hypocritical slogan.
    NY lieutenant governor arrested on bribery charges

    New York Lieutenant Gov. Brian Benjamin was indicted for alleged bribery and other offenses, as part of what federal prosecutors say was a "scheme" to get campaign contributions in exchange for a $50,000 state grant.

    The indictment also alleges that Benjamin and others worked to "cover up" the plot, engaging "in a series of lies and deception."

    Fox News has reached out to Gov. Kathy Hochul's office for comment but they did not immediately respond.

    This is a developing story. Check back for updates.

    he said:

    "
    Democracy isn’t the objective; liberty, peace, and prospefity are. We want the human condition to flourish. Rank democracy can thwart that."

    he is making a fairly obvious and true point that we are not a true democracy, we are a republic.

    from Atlantic magazine:

    "
    The United States was founded as a republic, not a democracy. As Alexander Hamilton and James Madison made clear in the Federalist Papers, the essence of this republic would consist—their emphasis—“IN THE TOTAL EXCLUSION OF THE PEOPLE, IN THEIR COLLECTIVE CAPACITY, from any share” in the government. Instead, popular views would be translated into public policy through the election of representatives “whose wisdom may,” in Madison’s words, “best discern the true interest of their country.” That this radically curtailed the degree to which the people could directly influence the government was no accident.

    That’s not as cool as a snippy little retweet. Just ask CNN. They’ll tell you.
