Democracy vs. Freedom

The left's abusive relationship with democracy

"Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom... The subjection of individuals will increase amongst democratic nations, not only in the same proportion as their equality, but in the same proportion as their ignorance." ~ Alexis de Tocqueville

If there is one thing the Democrat Party has taught us is that democracy by itself does not equal freedom. A democratic society is not the same as a free society.  Democracy only produces freedom if freedom is on the ballot.

For the left, democracy is a means to an end.  As Democrats shrilly shout “democracy!”  and claim that events like January 6th, 2021 were an assault on democracy, they fail to realize that the vast majority of the crowd that day was protesting in favor of it.  In fact, their central grievance was that democracy had been trampled on during the election and needed to be set right, and were calling on Congress to do that by not allowing electors to be accepted from states where America's electoral process had been hijacked by the Democrats.

What the Democrats can't accomplish by democracy, they're perfectly willing to accomplish through the courts, unelected bureaucrats, and even by force (read terror). The KKK, Antifa, and BLM are all groups the Democrats have directly or indirectly employed for this purpose. For the left, the purpose of elections is to give their seizure of power an air of legitimacy, not to increase individual freedom. This is what de Tocqueville was warning us about.
