The level of outright fraud and corruption of the rule of law in last week's midterm election could go down as the undeniable turning point in U.S. electoral integrity. We no longer can expect legitimate election results because of rampant voter fraud typical of third world and totalitarian countries.
The concept of representative democracy was intended by our founders to be a very limited democracy because they understood that a republic form of government and absolute democracy were incompatible. As classical thinkers they understood that a constitutional republic exists to protect the rights of all citizens including minorities through rule of law, while democracy in it's purest form is quite literally mob rule and is best represented by communist and totalitarian countries who own and control all forms of media and claim to represent the majority. Elections are usually rigged in favor of the oppressor, and sold as pure democracy representing the people. The power elite tell the ill informed through the controlled media that the state will provide for all their needs by redistribution of wealth and claim legitimacy by the manipulation of the ballot box. As Joseph Stalin famously quoted "it's not the people who vote that count. It's the people who count the votes".
