Democracy as we know it today was anti-American in 1787

To The Daily Sun,

An outside observer commented on Professor Steve H. Hanke's astute critique of our democracy today: "The Founding Fathers were anxious and fearful of allowing any form of tyranny, including the tyranny of the majority." — Jacques de Larosiére, was the former Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund.

CATO Institute contributor and Professor Steve Hanke's study and article in the Globe Asia reminds us that most people, including most Americans, would be surprised to learn that the word "democracy" does not appear in the Declaration of Independence (1776) or the Constitution of the United States of America (1789).

E Pluribus Unum did not mean one party, one majority, or one class or people in special interest groups could dictate to the one nation and all its individual people. Mob rule was a fear the founding fathers dearly wanted to prevent. Democracy as we run it today, under changes to the Constitution and common law, today, was anti American in 1787.

The individual and states' electoral votes must count.

A perfect union towards human kind by the rule of law originally meant to prevent tyrannies against individuals — the " E Pluribus " — one person or state under one set of a rule of laws — our Constitution — for the many diverse individuals and states within our borders.

Hyphenated leadership dictates are contrary to original constitutional principles of governing.

Absurd self described pre-labels such as I am a liberal-, Asian-, Hispanic-, single mother-, Democrat-, LGBT-, lean forward-, undocumented-, agnostic-American provides a perfect example of how people have pigeon holed themselves. Icelandic-, German-, conservative-, Republican-, gun rights-, heterosexual-, married-, sports fan- American also come to mind.

Please spare me the titles of self interest and get back to, I'm an American first because I give full faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States and its rule of law. Mobs of hyphenated-Americans today are screaming for popular voting for president and ruling, as long as it is their mob that votes, even by a minority of states.

Mr. Hinke concluded in his pointed review of our history to date, "The Constitution was designed to further the cause of liberty, not democracy. And, expanding democracy is a slogan which requires great caution. It can easily result in elected tyranny."

Classes of people are now greatly more powerful than in our first century, as a country, as the government and its sovereign protected people have control and with their special interest groups surrounding D.C. with a wall of cash as a fort for re-election guarantees. These folks are what Trump exposed as entrenched establishment power brokers. They are a mob of tyranny and dictates from on high not interested in requiring individual protections of liberty originally intended in 1776. Today new term limits would mitigate this trend.

Unraveling the special hyphenated politically correct and connected behemoth-anti original constitutional-powers of government is a task the John Q. Citizen must plan a long term campaign and be prepared for one fight after another.

These fights will not be supported by the socialist-favoring big government press who literally accuses original intent constitutionalists of sedition when their favorite programs are challenged or their insiders' access are threatened.

Edward Snowden exposing 4th Amendment mega snooping rights violations by our government, Hillary's abuse of the subpoenas for her emails, and condoning illegal immigration Executive orders are a few prime examples. God forbid the powerful are subject to the same laws of the commoners.

This is why entrenched democracy running amuck and in support of popular voting beyond the Congress is dangerously close to mob dictates over the rule of law.

When Trump stated he was the conduit to bring back the people's country, he was talking directly about the rule of law and not mob rule. Obamacare is an example. That law was not what the original Constitution protected, that of individuals' liberty to choose and to have property ownership rights. It never had popular support when voted on by one party. Liberties were violated and now large problems exist to undo it.

When any party in complete power forces dictates that are against liberties, such as your right to choose who, what, when, and where of your health care, then you have destroyed our original principles of governing through direct mob rule via the parties, their power brokers, and protected class of government bureaucrats.

We must restore the liberty principles of our founding original intent Constitution for E Pluribus Unum.
