John R. Lynch on Democracy

“The name ‘Democracy’, affording to it modern perverted application, is synonymous with every species of political crime, outrage, and inhumanity which has ever disgraced our government or brought reproach upon our civilization. It not only sustained and upheld the inforced degradation and subjugation of a large portion of the inhabitants of the country, but which, to say nothing of what may now be regarded as dead issues, has been the bane and curse of the South for the last quarter of a century.”18
