    Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for lunch.

    Liberty is a well armed sheep contesting the vote.

    What kind of comment is that? Liberalism does not protect individual rights, stop being foolish.

    Don't say someone is wrong and use Wiki as your lone source for your argument it's really bad form.
    ARTICLE 4
    SECTION 4.

    The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

    Article IV | U.S. Constitution | LII / Legal Information Institute

    Liberals do not protect individual rights. If they did why are most liberals anti gun?
