Main Entry: de·moc·ra·cy
Inflected Form(s): plural de·moc·ra·cies
Etymology: Middle French democratie, from Late Latin democratia, from Greek dēmokratia, from dēmos + -kratia -cracy
a : government by the people; especially : rule of the majority
b : a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections
Thus, the only "rule of law" inherent to democracy is that the elections be free and the results of same recognized and implemented.
Prove that, given the definition, democracy cannot exist w/o due process or preotection from search/seizure/unusual punishment.
Yo have not, and can not, shown a necessary relationship between democracy and due procees, etc.
By your argument, if the 4th and 6th amendments were repealed, we'd cease to be a democracy -- the adsurdity of which is plain on its face.
And at this point, your trolling ends.
