Republican Party Uses Democracy to Rig Election & Cheat Rules - Republican Party NOT republican at AllSubmitted by We the People on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 21:37
Many people are complaining that there was no democracy at the Republican National Convention (RNC) when actually it's quite the opposite. The RNC has turned into a highly democratic event, and the Republican party has turned into a democratic party.
Every rule that was broken and every elected delegate that was not seated was violated by democracy, or majority vote.
Therefore, the Republican Party is not republican at all. If it were, the rules, which are written to protect and apply to everyone equally, would be followed.
In a republic the rules or law protect everyone equally, while in a democracy the majority tyrannize the minority at whim.
In fact, the Republican Party is so very democratic that it is actually working to eliminate any remaining republican forms of elections from their primaries. The Republican Party is now claiming that only the popular democratic vote should matter, in forcing delegates to support presidential candidates, rather than letting delegates decide who they want to vote for themselves.
