During the heated debate over impeaching Donald Trump, some Democrats came up with a new argument for throwing him out of office. They said he was so dangerous that he shouldn’t be allowed to stand for reelection. In other words, they are saying that the people cannot be trusted to elect a president. They are using the same argument against democracy that tyrants have used for centuries.
Obviously, they are not calling for a dictatorship. They clearly want a system in which a bunch of self-appointed, so-called elites have all the power since the rest of us don’t know what is best for us.
I have written many times that preserving our democracy is far more important than which party is in power. Having our elected leaders show a lack of faith in democracy is not a good sign.
