Something that the public needs to know?
Not that we are big fans of unfettered democracy, but American democracy is a standard talking point for US politicians and one of the pillars upon which rests the current regime. It matters not that the United States was founded as an inegalitarian federation of highly restricted republics. The myth that the average man on the streets believes is that the USA is a democracy. With that in mind…
These are just a few hot button issues where the US Supreme Court imposed decisions upon the entire USA, throwing out popular State laws. In the process, the Federal court entirely changed the social fabric of life in the USA. The people never voted for racially-integrated schools, interracial marriage, gay marriage, abortion on demand and a ban on prayer in school. Is the USA really a democratic society?
One more. Just recently the people (through the Electoral College) elected a president who campaigned on “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” President Trump enacted a travel ban after he was elected preventing people from a number of Muslim countries from coming to the USA. What happened? Two Federal judges threw out his travel ban. That is American democracy for you.
Finally, we should add that historically Southerners have been highly skeptical of un-restricted democracy. Southern Nationalists condemned it in no un-certain terms. Restricting the franchise remains highly popular in the South today, though Federal judges continually strike down laws which even hint of moving in that direction. There are a variety of opinions on the franchise within the Alt-South. However, one thing we can surely agree upon is that a few unelected, liberal US Supreme Court judges ought not be able to dictate law in Dixie.
NOTE: As Hunter Wallace has explained, “[t]he Alt-South isn’t a membership organization. It is… a space for everyone in Dixie who isn’t some kind of leftist or mainstream conservative (i.e., nationalists, populists, reactionaries) to come together to discuss our past, present and common future. Southern Nationalists [are] at the core of the Alt-South.”
