The U.S. Government Is the Government of the People

Editorial: The horrifying attack on Paul Pelosi is an attack on democracy, and America

Here is a short and pointed piece I wrote about what happened on June 12, 2004. From the point of view of the Democrats I am talking to you now. I’m not talking about the Republicans in the United States. The Democrats have been the party of government for the past fifty years. The Republicans have always been the party of the voters. I am talking about our government, which operates like the Soviet “dictator” of old.

The U.S. has a system of government that is essentially the same one in many Western European countries. The people elect a government. The government chooses its cabinet. Then it votes.

When the government does that there is no freedom, because everything has been taken away. There is no private life, because there is no private citizen anymore.

There was no power of arrest in our government, and that has been replaced by executive power in Britain: the cabinet, the prime
