Mob Rule. Mob Tyranny.
Define Establishment of Justice.
I believe Thomas Jefferson defined it best:

We are a Republic, not a Democracy. Define the difference, its important.

democracy is a form of government where-by unethical people, using lies, misinformation and fear tactics, can scare millions of voters into voting for bad people and bad laws
There are Powers none of us should have over each other.
Are there any non representative democracy's? aka republic or parlimintarian types of democracy's?
I do not think there is any true democratic government on earth.
Of course democratic government is an oxymoron if you think about it.
