A More Perfect Democracy

From the One's spokesman re the "perfecting democracy" quip:
"[Obama's] taken, I think, rather historic steps to improve our own democracy since coming to office here in the United States."
Uh... what historic steps does he think have been taken? Ramming through health insurance reform? We know Biden thought it was a BFD but is that really what Obama considers as perfecting a democracy? Really? Or was it taking over the car companies? Or was it just getting elected? Let's hope this is just a part of the grand subterfuge.

I wish the American people … particularly those who are in the government, would stop bandying the word ‘Democracy’ around. We don’t have a democracy; we have a republic. Wouldn’t it be neat if those who actually run the government would acknowledge this?

We cannot define government through cleverly applied rhetoric; we define it by its behavior. Democracy is the right term for local government; they are mostly parliamentarian structures and they are decidedly socialistic and populist.

Perhaps it is this lack of understanding that enables smooth talking socialists to move our republic ever closer to Marxist utopia.

Just a thought ...

You're right--most socialists love the term as opposed to "republic" because they know a popularity contest on free stuff always wins.

I can't believe this incredibly arrogant comment isn't getting more play but then again, it's just one of many and the MSM is, you know.

I heard that statement also. All I could do is shake my head.
