"Don't forget that pure democracy is a form of collectivism -- it readily sacrifices individual rights to majority wishes. Since it involves no constitutional bill of rights, or at least, no working and effective one, the majority-of-the-moment can and does vote away the rights of the minority-of-the-moment, even of a single individual.  This has been called 'mob rule,' the 'tyranny of the majority' and many other pejorative names.  It is one of the greatest threats to liberty, the reason why America's founding fathers wrote so much so disparagingly of pure democracy."

The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land uses that pure democracy as a misdirection masquerade. With elections showing 108% vote for one candidate and 0% for the other, with no investigation, a democracy would be a step up from what now infests this land. The quote is very accurate.
