A REPUBLIC IF YOU CAN KEEP IT!

During the American Revolution the founding fathers watched the mob switch sides depending on which army was encamped nearby! Over the last 200 years we have stripped some of those republican protections away in an effort to become more democratic.
Increasingly today we are hearing calls to dismantle the Electoral College, to eliminate the US Senate and to stack or impose term limits on the Supreme Court! There are always two edges to every sword and while doing these things may make us more democratic the downside is that it can also empower the mob!
Remember the Democratic French Revolution decapitated the King only to eventually give rise to an even more powerful Emperor!
