Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, December 10, 2018

It's been a month since Democrats, who needed to flip 23 GOP-held seats in order to take back the House, routed Republicans in the midterms. And while regaining control of the House for the first time in eight years hasn't been in doubt since a few hours after the first polls closed on Election Day, the exact margin remained in question due to a handful of races that required additional time to count votes.

It could end up being 41. It's looking more and more like NC-9 results will be tossed and a new election called.

Around that time he was given a 3 week, no-expenses-paid vacation by our host. He was able to come back on November 18th but, as can be seen, his is nowhere to be found.

This comment is probably the main reason he's a coward to return:

Not sure if you're a The Walking Dead fan, but there's a scene in an episode in the current season that reminded me of sheeple when I saw it (S9E5):

Maggie goes to execute Negan, but after realizing that he is worse than dead already, she abandons the idea. Negan meekly returns to his cell, weeping, a mere shell of his former self.

That's sheeple.

And if he's now posting as someone else it is as a shell of what he was, so he might as well be gone.

SHEEPLE is still listed as a "user" according the Stats Page but he hasn't posted since Oct. 28.

1) Maybe he doesn't like the taste of crow;
2) Maybe he's using another name;
3) Maybe the check bounced.

Democracy:

In a CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY the authority of the majority is limited by legal and institutional means so that the rights of individuals and minorities are respected. This is the form of democracy practiced in Germany, Israel, Japan, the United States, and other countries.

This framework is intended to assist interested persons in various nations in establishing or improving curricular programs which foster an understanding of and support for constitutional democracy. The outline must be adapted to fit the circumstances and needs of individual political communities.

I. WHAT ARE THE ESSENTIAL CHARACTERISTICS AND PRINCIPLES OF CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY?

CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRACY is the antithesis of arbitrary rule. It is democracy characterized by:

A. POPULAR SOVEREIGNTY. The people are the ultimate source of the authority of the government which derives its right to govern from their consent.

B. MAJORITY RULE AND MINORITY RIGHTS. Although "the majority rules," the fundamental rights of individuals in the minority are protected.

C. LIMITED GOVERNMENT. The powers of government are limited by law and a written or unwritten constitution which those in power obey.

D. INSTITUTIONAL AND PROCEDURAL LIMITATIONS ON POWERS. There are certain institutional and procedural devices which limit the powers of government. These may include:

1. SEPARATED AND SHARED POWERS. Powers are separated among different agencies or branches of government. Each agency or branch has primary responsibility for certain functions such as legislative, executive, and judicial functions. However, each branch also shares these functions with the other branches.

2. CHECKS AND BALANCES. Different agencies or branches of government have adequate power to check the powers of other branches. Checks and balances may include the power of judicial reviewÀ"Àthe power of courts to declare actions of other branches of government to be contrary to the constitution and therefore null and void.

3. DUE PROCESS OF LAW. Individual rights to life, liberty, and property are protected by the guarantee of due process of law.

4. LEADERSHIP SUCCESSION THROUGH ELECTIONS. Elections insure that key positions in government will be contested at periodic intervals and that the transfer of governmental authority is accomplished in a peaceful and orderly process. www.civiced.org


Gee, I guess we are a "democracy", at least as defined by everybody in the world except the Right Wing.
