Letter To The Editor: ‘Our System Is Supposed To Be A Constitutional Republic, NOT A Democracy!’

I must write to correct Joel Williams in his letter to the editor titled, “Our System Is Supposed To Be A Democracy.”

The United States was founded as a Constitutional Republic. No where in our founding fathers’ writings can be found the word “democracy.”

But, Benjamin Franklin expressed it most succinctly, “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”
