A Democracy, by definition, has two principle elements,
First, it recognizes sovereignty as the right of the collective body of the people, which sovereignty is appointed to a governing body that executes its will over its people; in other words, mob rule.
Second, though each person has the privilege of casting their representative vote toward the sovereign collective body, a Democracy does not recognize independent sovereignty of any individual person.
Therefore, in a Democracy, the government can create and control its rules, regulations and what it calls law to suit the needs of what those in power call common opinion having no respect for private life, liberty, property or God.
The Founding Fathers of the United States of America were repulsed by Democracy, finding it to be the worst form of government possible.
