I cringe every time I hear the word Democracy. Everything is wrong with democracy. Democracy is a lynch mob. Democracy is the angry townsfolk accusing the farm hand of killing the farmers daughter, dragging him out into town and bludgeoning him to death. Republicanism is the sheriff standing up for the accused killer for a fair trial and demanding his innocence until proven guilty.

The word “Democracy” isn’t found in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or any of the 50 states’ constitutions.  I guess republicanism is either hard to say, or unpopular.
