That is what is going on these days in our country – our true democracy is being ruined by a fake democracy, and we have not learned yet how to distinguish between two of them and how to fight the fake one.
Definition of Democracy by Merriam-Webster:Democracy is a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections.
The true democracy
Thus, in the true democracy, the people who are wishing to be elected and lead a nation are advertising the policies they are going to implement, and the electorate’s majority elects those whose policies are mostly preferred. If the elected officials fail to implement the promised, at the next election they will be deposed. That is the true democracy.
Who needs the true democracy? – All people of the true Judeo-Christian morality need the true democracy since the true democracy strengthens the Judeo-Christian morality for the entire nation.
In the past, probably until WWII, the USA was a true democracy – nowadays that is not the case anymore. (Although it may sound unbelievable to many, Russia is now a true democracy – the Russian majority wants a strong authoritative government, and this majority is voting for such government.)
A fake democracy
A fake democracy is when the will of the minorities overrides the will of the majority by legal manipulations. The policies the majority voted for are being prevented from implementation by redefining the democracy in an undemocratic way, and that is the USA of nowadays.
How to distinguish between the true democracy and a fake one
It is easy for the people of Judeo-Christian morality. The true democracy treats all its citizens as equals without splitting them into different unequal groups – by race, by wealth, by sex, by age, by religion, by political or social affiliation, etc. Why? – Because the people of Judeo-Christian morality know God created all people equal in his own image and likeness. In the God’s universe, the people are being “equalized” by the Torah/Bible-guided free-market economy and a sort of free-market spirituality.
A fake democracy declares all people are created unequal by the society of their residence, and the government should play the role of god to be the equalizer. In a fake democracy, the government is “equalizing” everybody: the less wealthy people – by redistributing to them the wealth from the wealthier people, the working women – by legalizing the equal pay on the par with the working men, the non-white people – by legalizing proportional representation and “affirmative action,” the people of other nations and cultures – by allowing human-rights-based immigration, etc., and all that “equalizing” is not what the majority voted for at the elections.
The rebirth of a fake democracy in the last elections, and who needs it
The US majority had elected an individual, Donald J. Trump, to be the US President although he had no experience in the politics. The majority preferred him over many other well-known politicians since he promised to do what the majority has believed for a long time must be done. The majority elected him based on what he was promising – his past achievements did not have any proofs he can do it. If he delivers what he promised, the majority who elected him will be happy, and the true democracy is strengthen.
The majority liked his key ideas such as restoring the national Judeo-Christian morality, strengthening the free-market economy, reducing the poverty by providing work opportunities, making sure the government is not the tool for personal enrichment, and … “making America great again.”
However, if Donald J Trump succeeds in delivering what he promised, the hordes of traditional politicians and the crowds of those who serve them will be forced to go to the private sector to support their wellbeing by producing the material wealth – not by confiscating it from the others.
And they created a fake democracy to fight and depose, if possible, a duly elected President. The creators of a fake democracy invented the brain-washing labels in support of their fake democracy such as conspiracy, obstruction, cover-up, white supremacy, discrimination, etc. The creators of a fake democracy are using the governing tools created to enhance the true democracy to subvert the true democracy.
In the Congress, they are boycotting and “impeaching” those who are trying to legislate along the lines of the majority’s will. In the Judicial institutions, they are creating the legal “road-blocks” to slow down or prevent the government from legislating along the lines of the will of the majority. They are criminalizing the politics to subvert the actions of the true democracy. They are supported by the fake news media outlets which are going to lose much if Trump succeeds.
What to do
Let’s work together to defeat the fake democracy and get back to our true democracy rooted in our Judeo-Christian morality.
It looks like the State of Israel is not immune from a fake democracy as well.
