VOT, you’re right!  I think the word “oligarchy” should be a part of this campaign because we live in a Republic, an oligarchic Republic. 

Democracy is mob rule.  Just ask the Greeks.

As for “constitution”  if you have an oligarchy, you don’t need one, so why talk about it.  What is, is.

I learn something new every day.  Thanks!

Why would / should “Democracy” be a word used a lot in the campaigns?  We live in a republic.  Democracy is mob rule.  Is that what you are hoping for?

Interesting.  I looked real hard but didn’t see anywhere, American People Have The Right To Be Pissed Off With Their Government And If We Don’t Recognize And Heed That Fact We Don’t Deserve The White House

Also, conspicuously missing are “Democracy” and “Constitution.”

What the hell is wrong with these guys and campaigning and the American voter?  I give more and more consideration to boycotting the Nov. election.
