 We are not the majority any more... We are a republic for multiple reasons. The tyranny of the majority is one reason we do not have a direct democracy. The populous is also emotionally reactive so the founders felt a representative form of government would temper that reaction and be more prudent. But our government is not without fault and the founders new that democracies do not last long. There are two quotes which come to my mind, forgive me if I misquote, "our form of government is only possible with a moral and godly people" and "our democracy is doomed once the people realize they can vote for money" I'm sure I butchered those quotes. LOL... Regarding the first quote for instance there are those that use our freedoms against us, like freedom of speech. There are those that will use freedom of speech to disparage our form of government, yet under the form they want they would not be allowed such freedoms. Another is capitalism, I'm a capitalist, but those that lie, cheat, and steal cause people to call for restrictions and regulations where  a moral people would not need such regulations. Lastly when people vote for other peoples money, well its runs out eventually.
