Save democracy?("Democracy " in the general usage sense.) I think most everyone except the center-right knows that democracy died with Bush v. Gore and / or the Patriot Act and other excursions in the wake of 9/11. And the center right might think it, too, even if they're less likely to say it out loud.

Did Obama repeal the Patriot act as he promised or expand it? Obama furthered the police state for U.S. citizens while arming drug cartels and used U.S. government aircraft to fly MS-13 gang members from Central America. Clinton, Bush, Obama, bought and paid for political establishment puppets. The true majority have had enough. So we overcame election rigging from the establishment and fake news from he mainstream, and elected Trump. The biggest lie of all is the Trump haters are fighting the Establishment.

America is a Constitutional Republic not a Democracy. President Trump's appointment of a strict Constitutionalist to SCOTUS will go a long way in securing our freedoms.

I think what I said was clear enough even for a right wing idiot. I said democracy - in the general usage sense - pretty much died.

I clearly did not post that democracy died and then came back under Obama.(Some things got better from a liberal perspective, however.)

Why can't you read or think? Meth cooking? Head injury? Stupid? Alcoholic? Brainwashed? Anyway, whatever your malfunction I've carefully explained what I so clearly posted.

Also, the Patriot Act stuff is Congressional, both Parties. No President has or had the political capital or any sort of majority in Congress to veto or otherwise ditch that Act and all its follow-on stuff.

It is developing into a fight. I hope the fight can be confined to the political arena and normal American processes of voting and electing.

But if not, I'm willing to do what's necessary to preserve freedom and defeat tyranny.

Your reminder here - which was certainly already alluded to in previous posts and thus is mere pedantry - has no bearing on Supreme Court nominees or on the nomination process. Those are going to be the same no matter what meaning of "democracy" is referenced.

Strict Constructionists are not really that. It's a buzzword. If your a strict Constructionist, for example, the you believe any US state or states may simply secede from the US whenever they want. But you have no idea whatsoever about what I'm referencing with this one example of many.

You just want right wing theocrats (redundant, almost always) running everything, and so you make up doctrines you don't understand to justify that result.

BTW, Bush v. Gore was the most blatant example of judicial activism in the modern era. It made nonsense of the various right wingers' fraudulent claims that they're all about "states' rights."

Moore says people are going to have to put their bodies on the line. What's he going to do, lay down in front of the voting line? I have to admit that it would be difficult to step over him or take the 15 minute detour around him.

MIchael Moore is trying to awaken the decent but disinterested people of this country, and make them participate in the voting process. It's ironic, but the fate of this country may lie in the hands of those least involved in our politics.
Donald Trump and his slavish lemmings have set this country on the road to destruction. We must awaken Americans before he finishes the job. We must reach the non-activists and show them how the upcoming elections will affect them personally.
This could be the most crucial election in our lifetime.
