    I think it's rather obvious that MM is referring to the fact that our form of government is not, in fact, a "democracy", but he's a big boy and can speak for his own self.


    ETA: I think the phrase often comes up "democracy is two foxes and a chicken voting on what to have for dinner".
    Republicans are broadly white Christians, Democrats are multi-racial. The current polarisation stems from that basic racial difference. Do you agree?

    Is the solution in the integration of Republicans?

    Why do you racists always have to divide people by race?

    I have a feeling it will be about as profitable as teaching a pig to sing.

    If it is not that, can you explain why gerrymandering sometimes divides the electorate along racial or ethnic lines?

    Both sides do it to give them whatever political advantage they can get.
