The Founding Fathers DELIBERATELY gave us a Constitutional Republic, they were horrified at the prospect of a democracy (e.g. where laws were passed based on what the majority wanted). Pure democracy was and always will be a slippery slope that inevitably results in anarchy.

Exactly, I didn’t even address that part.

Only had time to slip in and out lately.

Incredible discussion and you are dissecting all arguments with a hot scalpel.

Especially when those getting $ from the government are the majority (what to speak of fed $ going to the states).

It’s a death knell.
