Democracy's disaster omits one simple fact. America is not just a democracy. It is much different by being a democratic republic. It seems calling America something they are not making changes to degrade the country come easier. Where The Compact will allow mob rule it is the Electoral College restricts those mobs. Since America today has many mobs, democracy will only allow for the biggest mob to win. In a republic, the constitution protects inalienable rights that mob rule cannot take away. In pure democracy, the mob can control the majority by changes to a constitution.

The Electoral College is a disaster for a democracy, as Trump said, but it is a savior for a republic, which is what America always was intended to be. "A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, 'Well, doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?' With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, 'A republic, if you can keep it.'." The problem is enemies of freedom want to control the republic. To do that, they must first make America a true democracy so their ,ob can rule the majority wanting freedoms or our Constitution.

[Sen. Kevin J.] Rader, [D-Boca Raton] should not amend his bill to put Florida into the Popular Vote Interstate Compact because that will give the minority the ability to take freedom that is given by the Constitution. The Compact is socialists attacking the republic. As Trump said, "America will never be socialist." Not at long as we remain a republic. Don't give it away.
