Democracy is not Freedom!

I don't buy the REPUBLIC versus DEMOCRACY argument. To me, there is a lot of BS being spread around on both sides.

Arguing that the PEOPLE are too stupid to rule themselves undermines the base assumption that the only legitimate government is one sanctioned BY THE PEOPLE. Get me?

Right now (I am always open to change) I'm leaning far toward DEMOCRACY. Why? Because I've seen what a Republic has rendered in my country thus far -- and it ain't pretty. What could be worse than having a select group of "elites" decide how much of YOUR money they get?

I think any government will oppress some people. It's the nature of surrendering control. Maybe I'm an ANARCHIST, I don't know. I would just like to live my life in peace and keep whatever I earn. This ain't happening for me right now. (ASIDE: I have major IRS trouble.)

On the other hand, I think I understand things better than the average bear, so why not just make me KING? I've heard a benevolent monarchy is the best form of government...
