Through the ages democracies have always become dictatorships. Let me cite several recent
(1) Germany established a democracy after World War I.
Shortly thereafter chaos broke out; there was looting, rioting in the streets, and
widespread unemployment. A sense of hopelessness gripped the nation, and the German people
began looking for someone who could restore law and order. Adolph Hitler was elected to
office in 1932, and in January 1933, von Hindenberg appointed him Chancellor of Germany.
The rest is history. 
(2) Most people have forgotten that the Italian people elected Benito Mussolini to office
in 1922. He was the founder of modern-day fascism. 
(3) Following World War II Czechoslovakia elected members of both the socialist and
communist parties to their Legislature. When the socialists walked out of Parliament to
force new elections, the communists established a democratic dictatorship. 
(4) The American State Department often intervenes in democratic elections held in other
countries. If the candidate we favor isn't elected, we apply economic pressure until the
populace agrees to elect him. That happened in Rhodesia 20 years ago. We forced the
electorate to elect President Mugabe. A decade later we orchestrated Nelson Mandella's
election in South Africa, and recently we spent $70 million to ensure the election of our
candidate in Yugoslavia. That's how modern-day democracy works.
(5) $2 billion was spent during the recent election cycle. Do we really have a
representative government, or are we ruled by those who can afford to finance our
The 1928 American Army Training Manual defined "democracy" as:
"A government of the masses. Authority derived through mass
meeting or any form of 'direct' expression. Results in mobocracy. Attitude toward property
is communistic - negating property rights. Attitude toward law is that the will of the
majority shall regulate, whether it be based upon deliberation or governed by passion,
prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences. Results in
demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy."
