I'm not a bad guy. I'm just misunderstood.
Galatians 6:14 - But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
I am the one who knocks!
you liberals need to re-learn something - disagreement and dislike is not hate speech, discrimination, etc...... dis-agreement, as long as it is not threatening, is not wrong.
Just a little lesson on democracy vs a republic. America is not to be ruled by feelings or mob rule. Its not about whats popular now.
Quote "O]ur citizens should early understand that the genuine source ofA pure democracy operates by direct majority vote of the people.When an issue is to be decided, the entire population votes on it; the majority
wins and rules. A republic differs in that the general population elects representatives
who then pass laws to govern the nation. A democracy is the rule by majority feeling
(what the Founders described as a “mobocracy” 12); a republic is rule
by law. If the source of law for a democracy is the popular feeling of the people,
then what is the source of law for the American republic? According to Founder
Noah Webster:correct republican principles is the Bible, particularly the New Testament,
or the Christian religion.
The transcendent values of Biblical natural law were the foundation of the American
republic. Consider the stability this provides: in our republic, murder will always
be a crime, for it is always a crime according to the Word of God. however, in
a democracy, if majority of the people decide that murder is no longer a crime,
murder will no longer be a crime.
America’s immutable principles of right and
wrong were not based on the rapidly fluctuating feelings and emotions of the people
but rather on what Montesquieu identified as the “principles that do not change.”14
Benjamin Rush similarly observed.
[W]here there is no law, there is no liberty; and nothing deserves
the name of law but that which is certain and universal in its operation upon
all the members of the community.

Did you read the post? Didn't have anything to do with emotions. This country was founded on Judeo/Christian laws. Just because a man now wants to be a woman should not mean the laws change to suit them. I my believe Im an elephant doesn't mean I should get tax free peanuts. The law doesn't change because people change their minds. Therefore that is the difference between a republic and a democracy.
