Why Malaysia can never be like US

Since after Obama's victory in becoming the President, many of us, especially in Malaysia, are voicing out that we should allow someone from the minority group to be the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Well dear readers, do you want to know why it can happen in the US and not in Malaysia? First and foremost, the US doesn't practice Democracy. They don't, if you want to fight me on this go ahead. I am 100% sure about this. What they practice is not a Democracy but a Republic.

You may say that they're basically the same thing. Well, you can never be more wrong. Yes, people do vote but that's basically about it. They are 2 very different types of Governments and their 3 branches are never intertwine.

In Malaysia, democracy rules. What do you mean by Democracy? Democracy; Rule by Omnipotent Majority. In a Democracy, The Individual, and any group of Individuals composing any Minority, have no protection against the unlimited power of The Majority. It is a case of Majority-over-Man.

This is true whether it be a Direct Democracy, or a Representative Democracy. In the direct type, applicable only to a small number of people as in the little city-states of ancient Greece, or in a New England town-meeting, all of the electorate assemble to debate and decide all government questions, and all decisions are reached by a majority vote (of at least half-plus-one). Decisions of The Majority in a New England town-meeting are, of course, subject to the Constitutions of the State and of the United States which protect The Individual’s rights; so, in this case, The Majority is not omnipotent and such a town-meeting is, therefore, not an example of a true Direct Democracy. Under a Representative Democracy like Britain’s parliamentary form of government, the people elect representatives to the national legislature--the elective body there being the House of Commons--and it functions by a similar vote of at least half-plus-one in making all legislative decisions.(

What is a Republic? A Republic; Its purpose is to control The Majority strictly, as well as all others among the people, primarily to protect The Individual’s God-given, unalienable rights and therefore for the protection of the rights of The Minority, of all minorities, and the liberties of people in general. The definition of a Republic is: a constitutionally limited government of the representative type, created by a written Constitution--adopted by the people and changeable (from its original meaning) by them only by its amendment--with its powers divided between three separate Branches: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. Here the term "the people" means, of course, the electorate.(

There you go. You can Google up for more information regarding the two types of governments.

So we can never be like the US unless we ourselves practice a Republic government. Many of the world's goverments are Republic, Indonesia, Singapore, Philippines, America, France, China, South Korea, and the list goes on.
