This country was not founded as a democracy. It was founded as a republic. The Founding Fathers despised democracy. As far back as the ancient Greeks democracy was despised. They saw were it went.
Contrary to the myths, democracy is not American. It's anti-American. Worse, it's leftist, and leftism is about as close as pure evil as exists.
Want to see what democracy turns into? Look around. Fascism/totalitarianism. Democracy is when the smart are outgunned by the stupid. Why should someone with an IQ of 105 be allowed to vote?
And since the average IQ is 100 - which means half the people in his country have IQs of less than 100 - it is impossible, under democracy, for the smart and knowledgeable to rule. Democracy is the Rule of the Retards.
This woman should not be allowed to vote. She's a moron, and before these days of Political Correctness a moron was someone with an IQ of 85 or less. Muhammad Ali, who has an IQ of 78, is a moron.
If democracy does not work, what does? How about Kings and Queens? How about a constitutional monarchy?
As both the late Catholic anarchist Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn, and Hans-Hermann Hoppe, have noted, a constitutional monarchy is far superior to any other form of government.
Kuehnelt-Leddihn wrote the relationship between a monarch and his citizens is much like that between fathers and children, and Hoppe has made persuasive arguments that since kings in a sense "own" the country, they’ll take better long-term care of it than a democracy, which invariably looks no further than the next election.
Kuehnelt-Leddihn, quoting Rivarol, had this to say about the difference between monarchy and democracy, "...a monarch can be a Nero or a Marcus Aurelius, the people collectively can be a Nero, but they can never, ever, be a Marcus Aurelius" (my view is that the population may expand, but intelligence is a constant). He also wrote, in Leftism Revisited, "Outside of Switzerland, there has never been a republic that did not become a monarchy. Only the ignorant, the insular, or provincial can consider a republic or democracy – both antique forms of government – ‘modern,’ or a monarchy ‘obsolete.’"
Hoppe writes this about democracy: " ...democracy has been the fountainhead of every form of socialism: of (European) democratic socialism and (American) liberalism and neo-conservatism as well as of international (Soviet) socialism, (Italian) fascism, and national (Nazi) socialism."
He has this to say about monarchs: "...a king, because he ‘owns’ the monopoly [the country] and may sell or bequeath it, will care about the repercussions of his actions on capital values. As the owner of the capital stock on ‘his’ territory, the king will be comparatively future-oriented. In order to preserve or enhance the value of his property, he will exploit only moderately and calculatingly. In contrast, a temporary and interchangeable democratic caretaker does not own the country, but as long as he is in office he is permitted to use it to his advantage. He owns its current use but not its capital stock. This does not eliminate exploitation. Instead, it makes exploitation shortsighted (present-oriented) and uncalculated, i.e., carried out without regard for the value of the capital stock."
Concerning the lying weasels who run democratic governments, he writes, "the selection of government rulers by means of popular elections makes it essentially impossible for a harmless or decent person to ever rise to the top. Presidents and prime ministers come into their position as a result of their efficiency as morally uninhibited demagogues. Hence, democracy virtually assures that only dangerous men will rise to the top of government."
Friedrich Hayek noticed the same thing in chapter ten ("Why the Worst Get on Top") in his 1944 masterpiece, The Road to Serfdom, when he wrote that "the unscrupulous and uninhibited are likely to be more successful" in any society that sees government as the answer to society’s problems. "Seeing the government as the answer to society’s problems" is one of the best one-sentence definitions of democracy I’ve run across.
In fact, I should be King. I'd close down 90% of the government, fire 90% of the police, disarm the rest, arm all the citizens, deport every lowlife right out of this country, imprison or shoot every traitor, close down the central bank, dismantle our overseas empire, then declare bankruptcy and reboot the country.
And that would be on my first day as King.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will show you the difference between "royalty" and democracy. This is the First Lady of Syria:
And this is the "First Lady" of the United States:
