James Woods Gives Dems a History Lesson on ‘Democracy’ They REALLY Need

Conservative activist and actor James Woods is at it again, and this time he’s giving Democrats a history lesson on “Democracy” that they sorely need.
A) why this nation is in actual fact a representative constitutional republic, and B) why Democrats are called Democrats...
That gets it EXACTLY right! Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what to have for dinner.
Reaction to Mr. Woods history lesson on Twitter was swift:

Sir, I'm 71, I learned all this in Junior/Senior High School 1960-66. I'm appalled that many people, especially Democrat, don't know this basic knowledge of our Republican form of government.
A constitutional republic is an attempt to limit the dangers which result from a simple majority rule. The constitution limits the power of each officeholder, and protects rights of minorities from the "tyranny of the majority". Wikipedia
There is a reason the Federal govt can't get much done. Its by design. Founding fathers didn't believe govt should be doing much... certainly not running education, healthcare, etc. They did however ASSUME they'd be able to agree on common sense measures like border security.smh
Madison and Hamilton warned us of the tyranny of the majority.
Electoral College was amongst their best ideas.
Not everyone was excited about the history lesson James just gave to Democrats:
Meanwhile we have, in our Republic, 9 people, any majority of who can together take away our rights. Perfect governance is never free governance
