I prefer our Republican form of government, designed to protect us against Elitism and against popular Democracy.
Popular Democracy fails as soon as the public figures out it can vote to take assets from those who have earned them. (Hillary!!) Elitism, as in the Socialist Dictatorships or Islamist nations, is oppressive towards the general public. Neither of these systems protects individual Rights.
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
