Democracy is about everyone getting a vote and majority rule, irrespective of laws. That’s really the bottom line. And Democrats support democracy. Therein is the danger. A Constitutional Republic, which governs the US, requires voters to be qualified and they elect representatives to make laws and vote on policies, according to the governance of the Constitution. They are both horses, so to speak, but they are not the same color or breed. As elections draw near, citizens of every locality must be vigilantly beware of democracy—where everyone gets to vote regardless of their qualifications. The Washington, D.C. City Council is just one example of what happens to the vote under Democratic control.
The Hill reports that on Tuesday DC Councilmember Charles Allen introduced a bill to allow everyone in DC a vote. He said, “Our immigrant neighbors of all statuses participate, contribute and care about our community in our city. They, like all DC residents, deserve a right to have a say in their government…They raise families here, contribute to their community. They run businesses that people depend on, and they pay taxes that we decide how to spend. Yet they have no ability to elect local leaders who make decisions about their bodies, their businesses and their tax dollars.” Then the DC City Council promptly voted 12-1 to allow all foreign nationals to vote in local elections.
Ignoring the national requirement of a qualified voter—must be 18 and a citizen of the United States—the DC City Council will allow anyone to vote irrespective of whether they are legal, have visas, or are illegally in the United States. The only requirement is being 18 years of age and a resident of DC for 30 days. This opens the door for true democracy as a model for the rest of the nation. It is the end game of the Democratic Party from a philosophical perspective. This is one of the main reasons that Democratic Party leadership does not enforce border security. Democrats want complete open elections with no registration, no citizenship, no voter qualifications.
This is why Democrats say Republicans are trying to suppress the vote when efforts are made to remove dead people and non-residents from the voter rolls, or enforce the laws of voting requirements. A true democracy would not hinder any vote or any means to encourage voting. Therefore, anyone who seeks to follow legal voter requirements is trying to prevent people from voting. The “republican” form of government has its roots in the wisdom found in Exodus18:21, “Moreover you shall provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.” Notice the qualifications and the representative structure. Democracy is a horse of a different color. Beware of those riding it.
