The Death of Democracy

We watched in horror as Minneapolis burned and our democratic political leadership including Governor Tim Walz, Attorney General Keith Ellison, and Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey did nothing in the face of robbery, looting, and vandalism. The Republican Political leadership also failed to boldly ask for the enforcement of existing laws and did nothing to push back.

This appeasement only emboldened the mob, who have now gone on to push for more absurd demands of abolishing the entire Minneapolis police department. As serious as that is, the real stakes here are much higher than the Minneapolis Police department (or any police department). The failure to enforce the rule of law ultimately threatens the very existence of America as a free nation based on its constitution. Mob rule is not a substitute for a democratic society that makes laws through open and vigorous debate. We cannot tolerate our political elites abdicating their responsibility to enforce existing laws.

What has been left unsaid through this whole debate is that the freedoms and liberties that make America unique have been taken for granted and will perish if we surrender to mob rule.
