  1. You have obviously never read the US Constitution because if you had you would know that the United States is not now, never has been, nor ever will be a democracy. Article 4 of the US Constitution guarantees a republican form of government. Without a republican form of government there would be no enumerated rights to protect those in the minority. As Benjamin Franklin said, “Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what to have for dinner.” Under a republican form of government, sheep is not on the menu because the Constitution says so. I would suggest reading the Constitution before you write anything about it and make yourself look like a fool.
