Triumph: [fc08.deviantart.net image 792x612]


Actually it's one wolf and four sheep; but two of the sheep have voted for mutton because the wolf has convinced them that they can become wolves someday.

dittybopper: He's actually kind of right:  A democracy unbridled by strong individual rights applied equally can turn into a tyranny of the majority, and Jim Crow is a perfect example of that.


My parents always used to overrule me in their own form of 'tyranny of the majority' too. All I wanted was to play Nintendo just a little while longer, but nooo! I had to go to bed!

Stupid parents.

So let's skip to the good part:

Who's voting for Paul in 2016? Or is that also democracy he doesn't support?

Karac: Neither of the Pauls are stopped clocks, right twice a day.  They're both clocks running backwards at irregular speeds which change at random intervals.  They're right on very random occasion one every few blue moons - but never for longer than one unit of Planck time.


Or, as I like to put it:

"Ron [or Rand] Paul occasionally arrives at the correct conclusion by starting with false premises  and applying logical fallacies."

Heraclitus: Wow, the butthurt in that article was palpable.

" We lost two elections to a Black Guy, so Democracy is Racist and we should never hold elections again (if theres a possibility we might lose)."

Sounds like someone is afraid of getting their arses handed to them in the next election cycle...

/ If you think Democracy is Evil, dont vote!


The modern Republican Party is a party that claims to love democracy so much that they do everything in their power to ensure the smallest number of people possible get to vote.

Hollie Maea: Alas, the US is no longer a Republic but has become a Democracy.  The two reasons for this are: 1. With the House of Representatives membership capped at 435, each member represents many thousands of people.  2. The President has gained much power and rules like a monarch.

Satanic_Hamster: But what about all the times he said he thought Jim Crow laws should be legal.


Rand Paul has always held the same position on this, and every other issue: he stands for the side of the issue that will give him the most media coverage.

Rand Paul believes that we don't need mine safety regulations because people wouldn't want to work in an unsafe mine.

It's kind of odd that he used that example.  He is referring to the constitutional government of the USA so this obviously isn't the "republic not a democracy" stuff.
