NC Governor Bev Perdue: I Think We Should Go Ahead And Cancel The Elections So We Can Work On The Country's Problems

Suspend democracy?!

I've been waiting for some sensible talk about politics, and finally, here it is!

I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we wont hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover, Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, North Carolina, according to the Raleigh News and Observer. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.

Perdue said she thinks that temporarily halting elections would allow members of Congress to focus on the economy. You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things, Perdue said.

Why? Why would she say that?

Because she is a prisoner of the liberal -- or leftist -- idea that the people are incapable of making sound decisions about politics, and require a "vanguard" of the enlightened to make decisions on their behalf.

The problem is (from her perspective) is that democracy doesn't permit the vanguard to do "good;" when the vanguard ignores the (stupid, ignorant) mumblings from the citizen-morons of the republic, the citizen-morons rise up and vote them out of office.

That won't do. How can you have a revolution against the (moronic) wishes of the people if god-damned elections keep getting in the way?

So, suspend democracy. And wink-wink on that "suspend" part. Because you know there's a lengthy list of countries which suspended democracy in favor of autocracy -- tyranny -- and those empowered autocrats, finally free of the burdens of standing for re-election, were only too eager to give democratic power back.
