There are no pure democracies, but there are Democratic Republics. But this idiot isn't wrangling over the idea of democracy, he's using it as more of a metaphor for individual freedom. He is advocating more economic central planning to control individual freedom.
Oh, and for anyone that agrees with this (not directed at you 325mountguru) fuck you. The fucking problem is the fact that our government is to damn big, and does to many things which it is not supposed to do. Its only legitimate role should be to protect individual freedom. Nothing else. No bailouts, no safety-nets, no human resource pension, healthcare, and benefits manager, and certainly no economic central planner. And while we're at it .gov needs to quit trying to be the loving parent, directing what we consume, how we manage our personal and private affairs, and how we pursue our happiness.
Damn it. Progressive Government is what's fucked up, and that goes for both versions, conservative and liberal. So to all of you who support the idea of progressive government I have two words. FUCK YOU.
That is all.
