Why Does the Left Oppose Democracy on Issue After Issue?
Ever since Trump won the presidential election, we see the Left oppose democracy. The Left is not just against America’s Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and our Electoral College system of electing a president, it’s seems to be against true democracy as well.
Indeed, the Left has moved over the years from being liberal, to being progressive, to being socialist, and now it appears they are moving to being totalitarian and anti-democratic.
Let’s talk about the Left’s migration away from America’s founding principles toward the Left’s political and democratic demise next …
What is True Democracy?
People tend to think of democracy as citizens being free to vote in elections that choose their leaders. But, this isn’t exactly what democracy is in reality. It’s more than that.
In a true democracy, or more accurately a “morality-based democracy,” there are actually several requirements. Failure to have the requirements present results in a totalitarian State.
The requirements for a morality-based democracy include:
- The recognition that all people in a nation have human dignity and the right to be free (if their freedoms don’t hurt others’s freedoms)
- The recognition that every person’s rights must be protected (sometimes from a “tyranny of the majority”)
- The recognition that every person must live under the Rule of Law, also called “Equality Under the Law”
- The recognition that leaders are selected in free, fair and honest election by citizens (that’s why voter fraud is bad, and Voter ID laws are needed)
If any of these components are missing, then you have want is called a “power-based democracy” and ultimately a totalitarian State. Sometimes, you might even get anarchy, the complete breakdown of civilized society.
How Does Our Constitutional Republic Fit into Democracy?
Our Constitution sets up the political organization, structure and function of our government and our society. For example, we have three branches of government, the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches that divide up power, so that no one branch or person becomes too powerful. We also utilize the democratic principles above to choose our leaders.
America is a Constitutional Republic that uses and relies on morality-based democratic principles. A 100% democracy would hold votes for every decision large or small for the nation. 100% democracy is probably completely impractical.
Why Does the Left Oppose Democracy Today?
Well, let’s face it. The Left wanted Clinton to win and has had a tough time accepting her loss. How have they reacted? We have seen:
- Whining and complaining
- Coloring books and safe spaces
- Recounts of election results
- Lots of Fake News stories
- Polls based on inaccurate sampling models
- Protests and marches
- Rioting and violence
- Many frivolous lawsuits
The Left appears to seek their political results, socialism or anarchy or something else, over the collective will of the American people as expressed in the 2016 presidential election. Some say they are sore losers. Maybe, they are unwittingly giving up democratic principles in favor of totalitarianism.
Example – Immigration Ban Lawsuit
Consider the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, Section 212(f):
“Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.” [Source: http://dailycaller.com/2016/06/16/the-past-six-presidents-have-all-used-executive-power-to-block-certain-classes-of-immigrants/#ixzz4XxrK0rIZ ].
The last three presidents all used this statute several times. Why hassle Trump now when he wants to protect the American people from terrorism?

It predicted a new American Constitutional Era, the Conservative Era, which has now started. It predicted the end of both the Republican and Democratic Parties as we have known them. It predicted the end of the mainstream media’s ability to impact the presidential election as we have known it in the past. It also predicted the rise of the new media as an influence in presidential elections.
