    You don't understand what you're reading. The founding fathers never said, implied, not insinuated that we shouldn't have a democracy, or that a republic is not a democracy.

    of course they did. thats why we have congress.

    you are trying desperately to imply that this repiblican hates democracy in favor of a dictator or totalitarian trump. its silly. we all took high school civics and know that true democracies like some of the ones in those goofy ancient greek city-states were horrifying tyrannies of the mob where they would get 51% of people to crucify a guy that they didnt like and goofy shit like that. true democracy doesnt work, out founding fathers knew and every pedantic know-it-all on earth will tell you that. like this guy on twitter.

    its that you have TDS that you are desperate to paint all trumpists as anti-democracy putins that you are freaking over it. it was on lefty twitter and you think you found something. you didnt. its a dude explaining middle school civics. we dont live in a democracy and everyone knows it. when we say democracy we dont mean it literally. we live in a damn republic and if you dont beleive me ask a child in 5th grade civics class.

    Get it through your thick skull... we have a Congress because our founders wanted a REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY, not because they didn't want a democracy.

    you are being the pedantic guy that overexplains things. we all know we live in a republic, which is essentially a representative democracy. not an actual democracy where people control everything. again this is middle school stuff. you are just pretending this guy meant somthing he didnt, in a fairly sad effort to claim this guy wants a tyrannical trumpistan dictatorship.

    those are not quotes and i tend to be a real prick when people use quotes for what are paraphrases from memory, which is what iw as doing. so to be fair i looked up the real quote. i like to be fair to barack hussein obama:

    "Gov. Romney, I'm glad you recognize al-Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what is the biggest geopolitical group facing America, you said Russia, not al-Qaida," Obama said. "You said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back. Because the Cold War has been over for 20 years. But Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policy of the 1950s, and the economic policies of the 1920s"

    - obama, being a dick to romney who knew russia continues to be a force for chaos

    A republic IS an "actual democracy". And Lee is clear that he'd accept alternative governments, which include autocracy, theocracy, dictatorship, if it means what HE thinks is prosperity or flourish. There was no point in making his statement, whatsoever, if he didn't already believe we have a democracy.

    he didnt say any of what you claim, and you cant point to anything he said that you dont agree with. you have to assume what he meant to make it wrong.

    we are not a democracy and you know it. if a state voted to ban free speech, or to marginalize blacks, or ban guns, it would be disallowed by the supreme court. it would not matter if the people had democratically voted to ban free speech. we are not a democracy, we are a constitutional republic. constitution, as defined by the supreme court, would override democratically determined laws.

    you are trying way too had to disagree, you know all of this is true, and mike lee himself explained it (https://www.lee.senate.gov/2020/10/of-course-we-re-not-a-democracy), but you are a slave to the media narrative that those that ally with trump are secretly authoritarians, motivated by their inner inclination to fascism. so dumb.

    He's backtracking, of course, because his original tweet was met with such condemnation. In the process, his later CYA would render that first tweet pointless but too bad for him it's still there for all to see.

    he isnt, and there is no indication whatsoever of that.

    again, you cant point to anything he said that you dont agree with. everything you are disagreeing with is stuff you imagined he meant

    Like I've always said, "majority rules" is almost always a terrible idea!
