Skip to comments.The dreck about Trump ending 'democracy'

Swamp regular Admiral James Stavridis has taken his best shot at addressing a phony issue: whether "democracy" is dying, killed off by President Trump, presumably, by offering reassuring words to the left and the Washington establishment about its durability in a cover essay in Time. Axios has the write-up and a photo of the cover.
I suppose a lot of them are going to take grim satisfaction from it, given the level of hysteria on the left about President Trump's very existence.
But it rather too cutely frames a canard. The left, including Time magazine, seems all in for the idea that democracy is crumbling get a load of the magazine's new cover and is using Stavridis to say grand things in response. It's incredible windbaggery.

This is pretty good explanation of our Republic.
Agree, we are a Constitutional Republic NOT a Democracy!
Democracy is a totalitarian manifestation not a form of freedom. 2 wolves and a sheep deciding what’s for dinner. 2 imams and a hillary voting slut deciding who gets to have the clitorectomy.
We were a constitutional republic with a very limited democratic process to elect our representatives...Now were just a banana republic.
I doubt anyone makes four stars in peacetime without swimming laps in the swamp.
They’re “lapping” something.
