A Democracy, want one?

Democracy! Democracy! , you and i have heard this word a time or two. But is democracy good or bad? It all depends where you stand.
If you are at the top. it's good, if you are in the majority it's very good. But if you are in the minority ,it's down right ,bad.
Why? one definition of is , a government by the people,especially the rule of the majority. The 51% telling the 49% ,this is how it's going to be. Now are you sure you want democracy, or a Republic.
Ben Franklin said it best. "Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what's for dinner. Liberty is the Armed Sheep contesting the vote"! 
So when you hear the word democracy, think about it,Majority Rule or Liberty? Liberty will win everytime.
