Look, all we have is democracy, as flawed as it is, to save us from our barbaric inclinations.

I'm not arguing against democracy.

What I have done is

1 - Correctly assert that the federal government is limited by the constitution.

2 - Assert that such a limitation is a good thing.

3 - Assert that statements like "we are the government" are both factually incorrect and irrelevant to the two above points.
