    Serious question, as I am not American so make me understand this. Did conservatives rejected democracy when Obama won the elections?

    The fact we pretend we have a democratic system when 90% of all media is owned by 6 companies that control the entire narrative is laughable.

    I'm not conservative, but isn't this the opposite of what's happened? Liberals are rejecting the system because their side didn't win?

    Many times I agree with shit like this because many times one political party is "more" guilty of it then the other. the big problem we have here is that the party doing what to whom is dependent on if they are the party in power. Both sides suck in their own ways and both sides are willing to bend and break the rules to further their own agendas. Neither side is loyal to the constitution when they can benefit from ignoring it. and the people of this country are more than willing to go along with it as long as its their side thats doing it.....the American political system is one huge lesson in bullshitery and hypocrisy.

    And yet liberals lose because of a perfectly legal system that they heavily exploit, and suddenly they want it dismantled... (Fun fact though: if you voted for Hillary, you actually voted conservative. She's a conservative Democrat.)

    It would only delay the inevitable, only a matter of time before the Conservative ideology will go on the trash heap. Trump is the best thing that could have ever happened for the left. Even another 4 years would only turn even more of the youth against the Republicans and Conservatives. Now imagine if Hillary had one? Then the ideology could have actually stood a chance, neoliberals like Hillary were practically more conservative than not anyway, but the dumb conservatives base just couldn’t allow it. Instead they decided to bite off their nose in spite of their face. Talk about being dumb as a stump. And yet, even with all the writing on the wall, they still think this is good for them. So dumb man, like unimaginably dumb. Chose a two bit conman over their own ideology.

    Wow this is pathetic. Can’t escape the left butt hurt anywhere. Also, when in doubt just look for the political party that tries to control speech and the words you say.

    Y'all acting like trump represents the smallest part of conservatism. Republicans did abandon conservative values and they did it in 2016

    Unfortunately this is not based off facts. Obama was just president. Democracy never abandoned by conservatives. In fact all conservatives know The USA is the best country in the world. Its liberals who hate it, want to change everything and give stuff away for free. And if conservative disagrees they are called a bigot and a racist. LMAO liberals always pathetic

    CompleX999

    Stupidity aside, there are other things wrong with the picture. The man in background is Trump and not the person who said the quote (David Frum). Democracy is rejected and/or accepted by almost any political side. Conservatives aren't the black sheep in this regard. The generalisation that conservatives might reject democracy if it didn't suit them is the most laughable idea I have ever come across. The only group of people to uphold the Constitution and the laws which were set in a democratic fashion are the conservatives. Left wants to abolish the 1st and 2nd amendments, take more money from the rich because they haven't "earned" it, kill a newborn child and call it abortion etc. What is the most insane idea you've heard that was proposed by conservatives? I'm not making a rhetorical question, I truly want an answer please.

    This is true of both sides. People who feel they have no recourse will go to extremes to not be powerless.

    Of course we reject it. Democracy is mob rule, we're a constitutional republic. Get it right, Dave.

    I think it’s better than smearing people with false accusations to their “Win”. (Liberal desperation is more dense than a black hole, people mock them.)

    My real quibble with this quote is the assertion that this is a thing that only conservatives do. If the game doesn't feel fair. The checkers board is getting knocked over by the people who think they're getting screwed the most. Conservatives are not getting screwed the most, but they think they are. You could replace conservatives with liberals and the quote would still be true.

    Come on! Let’s be honest here. Both sides do it all the time. It isn’t just a Conservative thing. Just look how the Dems have behaved since Trump became President.

    The United States does not actually use a true democracy. Democracy is defined as a rule of the majority, where the majority can do whatever they want. The United States Consititution guarantees individual rights, so the majority cannot commit injustices on individuals. The United States is a consitutional republic, with a constitution that allows democratic elections.

    Isn’t american republicanism modeled in part on the roman republic, which was intentionally designed to have undemocratic institutions (eg the senate and the consul in Rome; our electoral college, supreme court and the original design of the Senate)? America abandoned democracy at the founding, and if you don’t like that then read up about the reasons for it and refute those...don’t just act like anyone who doesn’t always want to do what wins in opinion polls is un-American.
