Carter does not get Personal Liberty, the Science of Justice, Natural Law or any other truths born of the Age of Enlightenment that formed the basis of our Founding. If he did, he would not that men like James Madison and Thomas Jefferson decried "democracy" as a Tyranny of the Majority of the Community. George Washington tried to strongly warn us against divisions, classifications, and political parties in his 1796 Farewell Address. We have forgotten almost everything about what our Founders believed about the Republic they built.

Try looking for and reading a short 1882 paper called The Science of Justice by Lysander Spooner and get your brain educated in a short 18 page essay. Dump the Public School tripe and mental conditioning you've endured your whole life. Wake up!

Seems like the Drivel Level increases every time someone points out that Donald Trump did his best to circumvent the Constitutional process of the peaceful transfer of power in this country. Not that rwingers care about democracy.

No matter who is pointing it out...

U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt once said, "Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president."

Of course, TR was a monopoly buster and a conservationist, so obviously not the real man and real Patriot that Donald Trump is.

It's been funny to watch the last few years as every other small bidness in Red States has named itself, Patriot Plumbing or Liberty Lawn Care or some other such nonsense.

Saying you are a patriot doesn't make you a patriot. And still supporting Trump? That just makes you a fool.

"If he did, he would not that men like James Madison and Thomas Jefferson decried "democracy" as a Tyranny of the Majority of the Community."

So then why do we have elections?

Explain it to us.

Diminishing the ability to vote, being able to legally replace elected election officials at will as Republican legislatures in GA and elsewhere have done, an angry mob storming our Capitol (the first time since the Brits did it 200 years ago).

None of the above further the pursuit of a democracy or 'a better union.'

Only a traitor would think so.

Carter's post-presidential years are marked by conscientiousness, civic involvement, and reasoned opinion. It's amazing he got to the pinnacle of the American political universe.

#7 "able to legally replace elected election officials at will as Republican legislatures in GA "

That's a myth, Ga law does not allow the legislature to replace elected officials

"Of all the changes the widely criticized Senate Bill 202 made to Georgia's election law, the State Elections Board's new power to replace a duly elected county elections board with a single person is perhaps the most drastic.

When the bill was signed into law behind closed doors two weeks ago, Instagram explainer posts littered social media feeds, decrying the provisions that make giving water out to voters in line a misdemeanor. Georgia took a jab from Saturday Night Live during a sketch: "Voted the worst place to vote." President Joe Biden called the bill "Jim Crow in the 21st century."

Some myth there, LIAR.

The "violent" mob of Jan. 6 should've just burned down some businesses and killed some random bystanders, then Carter would luff them like BLM.

Be well.

The republican cult - where looting a Target superstore is worse than an attack on the capitol attempting to end democracy.

Tell me about it. There's one party that tried to assert that the legislative branch no longer had oversight powers over the executive branch. The same party that tried to defend their cult leader who had colluded with a foreign enemy that wants to destroy us.

Hint - It was yours.

For all the focus on supporting and listening to law enforcement who were involved during BLM riots, you folks sure have a hard time supporting and listening to the capitol police officers who have labeled the attack not just a riot, but an insurrection.

Fascinating to see when you decide to choose ignorance.

Sure they are. Trump's cult's form of celebrating 1/6 is to create new usernames and spam websites with pathetic false equivalencies and gaslighting the world that 1/6 was no big deal.

I'll never stop being amazed at the things I learn on the DR, Dick Cheney and Karl Rove are liberals.
