ELECTION DAY 2016: GET OUT AND VOTE - OUR DAY OFF







It's the 2016 election.   I am a huge political junkie, so I'm taking the day off.

A huge myth about America is that we are a democracy.   WE AREN'T.

Most people often mistakenly refer to our nation as the greatest democracy on earth.  They are mistaken because we are not an absolute democracy, but a constitutional republic.  That is what makes our nation great, for if we were just a democracy, we would be anything but great.

A pure unbridled democracy is a political system in which the majority enjoys absolute power by means of democratic elections.  In an unvarnished democracy, unrestrained by a constitution, the majority can vote to impose tyranny on themselves and the minority opposition.  They can vote to elect those who will infringe upon our inalienable God-given rights.
 
Thus, a constitution that limited and divided the power of government was necessary to preclude elected officials from imposing tyranny on the people.  This is why they adopted a constitution with limited enumerated power, divided and checked across several branches and levels.


The candidates closing argument ad buys:
 




 
 
 
Regardless of who you support - lets hope there is a speedy end to the election.  We don't need another Bush vs Gore that goes on for weeks and months.

GET OUT AND VOTE!
