Too many people think we are a Democracy, we are not a Democracy. Although we do have a small amount of democracy in the form of suffrage (the way we elect our officials) but that's it. All in all, we are a Republic. Democracy would allow 51% of the people to take a right away from 49%. It's mob rule and not a very good thing.
“I had three points I wanted to make,” Eastwood said. “That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not doing a good job. But I didn’t make up my mind exactly what I was going to say until I said it.”
"He that is good at making excuses is seldom good for anything else." ~Benjamin Franklin
