I am so fed up with politicians who keep calling our system a Democracy, its a Republic stupid! AlGore was a senator a vice president, he should know better, Ron Paul does.
In fact Democracy is the problem. Some how, at some time the government morphed into a Democracy as we abandoned the constitution and at that point we lost our Republic. We all know here, as the founders did, Democracies fail when the majority of people vote for benefits from the public treasury. The constitution did come with a reset button, but no one is willing to push it.
