The Antithesis of Will's Argument

Well there had to be someone...

The Republican Party and American conservatives publicly hold democracy, the rule of the people, pretty consistently in contempt.

Comment: Hey, let's not let history have any bearing here because it might get in the way of "popular democracy."

“Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.”

Robert A. Heinlein
