I read this today on CNN's headline article: "(CNN) -- The Senate's second-ranking Democrat slammed recent town-hall protests over health care on Sunday, insisting they violate "the democratic process," while the Senate's top Republican accused Democrats of "attacking citizens" with such complaints."
Now, for those who do not know, the word democracy means "rule of the people." Democracy involves the speaking out and involvement of every man and woman in order to influence political action. So, this type of behavior is exactly what democracy is all about. Some people believe government is above the will of the people . .. this is socialism at best and totalitarianism at its worst. We live in a Democratic Republic, which means we allow all people to vote for representative government. We also allow all people to give voice to their opinions and concerns. It may not be pretty, but Winston Churchill probably got this right: "Democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time."
