Dear Editor:

Ms. Funk is again wrong in her view that we live in a democracy. Although it may be an objective of the mob to remove this obstacle to unimpeded mob control, we do in fact still live in a Republic.

It is not surprising that mob mentality would erroneously conclude that shepherding a mob through a successful election would overturn our Constitution. Please, Ms. Funk, educate yourself as to what form of government under which we actually live, or admit that you do not believe that a form of government which grants every citizen, not just the majority, a right to be represented is wrong.

Yes, Christine, there is a Constitution. I’ll leave you with a quote that I believe is, although I didn’t research its origin thoroughly, of Lord Acton: “The one prevailing evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather that party, not always the majority, that succeeds, by force or fraud, in carrying elections.”
