"Well, I'm going to Panama. I'm ready to blow this rinky dink democracy to swim and snorkel in the Pacific, the Caribbean, and visit La Amistad National Park in the mountains of Panama." - lindytoes"


Back to grade school again for you.

We don't live in a 'democracy'. We live in a Constitutional Republic.

If you lived in a 'democracy' , probably all the whites would have voted to send all the African Americans back to Africa about in 1865......

If you lived in a democracy, you'd likely never have women voting because the men, who controlled in in the 1920s, would never have voted to let women vote.

Fortunately for you and 1/3rd of the US, we live under a Constitution and Bill of Rights.
