The reason why our Founding Fathers made it such is that in a Democracy it's quite possible to change a nation's laws in almost an instant by turning the hearts and minds of a majority of citizens away from those laws. When something like this takes place, there are those out there who automatically begin pulling at your heartstrings.
First, they have worked furiously to change the underpinnings of this nation from its true Republic form of government to that of a Democracy. They are working very hard to convince you and I that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights--the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution--are fluid, that they can be altered in an instant by a Constitutional vote, or some such nonsense.
The bottom line is, if you like Communism or Socialism that terribly much, there are a bunch of Socialistic and Communistic countries out there, so why not go live in one of them and leave the rest of us alone? You'd be happy (at least until you figure out the mistake you just made) and those of us who prefer freedom will be happy.
