4. Conservatives believe democracy to be dictatorship
Edited on Mon Nov-26-07 12:06 PM by Chulanowa
But only when it reaches a decision they disagree with. Ever heard the term "tyranny of the majority"? It's an earnest Publican belief that the are oppressed by the methods of Democracy, in that those they disagree with are allowed to voice and vote just as surely as they are. It's quite threatening from their perspective.
