Quote from Westbrook Pegler,

"Did I say "republic?" By God, yes, I said "republic!"
Long live the glorious republic of the United States of America.
Damn democracy. It is a fraudulent term used,
often by ignorant persons but no less often by intellectual fakers,
to describe an infamous mixture of socialism, graft,
confiscation of property and denial of personal rights
to individuals whose virtuous principles make them offensive."
