self-destruct once the non-productive majority (mob)realizes that it can vote itself “entitlements” from the productive minority, by simply banding together and electing the candidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury.To maintain their power base (the mob; their vote), these candidates mustadopt an ever-increasing tax & spend policy to satisfy the ever-increasingdesires (demands) of the majority. As taxes increase, incentive to produce decreases causing many of the onceproductive to drop out and join the non-productive.The mob continues to grow... When the time comes (and it will) that there are no longer enough producersto fund, both the legitimate functions of government
the entitlementprograms, the democracy collapses followed by a Dictatorship. It happenedin Germany (Hitler) and it can happen anywhere; even the United States,don't think that it can't.Even though nearly every politician, teacher, journalist and citizen believesthat our Founders created a democracy, is completely and absolutely FALSE!The Founding Founders of America, who created the Constitution, were fully aware of the resounding differences between a Republic and a Democracy and they repeatedly and emphatically said that they had founded a Republic.
Article IV Section 4, of the Constitution
guarantees to every state inthis union a Republican form of government
".... Conversely, the wordDemocracy is not mentioned even once in the Constitution.James Madison, 4
President of the United States and one of the framers of our Constitution, warned us of the dangers of democracies with these words:
"Hence it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or therights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they havebeen violent in their deaths."
James Madison, Federalist No. 10
