Liberal lawmakers bill creates ‘Democracy Day’

MADISON — Offering another excuse to give state employees the day off at taxpayer expense, liberal lawmakers have proposed a bill that would establish “Democracy Day” in Wisconsin.

Assembly Bill 688 would designate the “Tuesday after the first Monday in November” as a legal holiday.

Its co-sponsors, a Who’s Who of left-wing legislators, assert “Democracy Day” would be “in honor of veterans and their efforts to protect our democracy, liberties, and freedoms, especially the right to vote.”

This from many of the same people who have railed against the U.S. military and have supported erosions, if not outright removal, of some of our most cherished constitutional rights.

What’s lost on these liberals is that the American form of democracy is not the democracy they envision or prefer. The United States is a democratic republic, a representative democracy, not a direct democracy. What the legislative sponsors of “Democracy Day” seem to support is closer to a pure democracy, an idea the Founding Fathers warned against.

Many of the bills advocates are of the same mind as other liberals who have called for abolishing constitutional protections against mob rule, most notably the Electoral College, in favor of popular elections.

“Democracy Day” supporters like Madison leftist, Rep. Chris Taylor, loathe election integrity laws such as “voter ID,” which protect the soul of representative democracy, the idea of one person, one vote.

Beyond the farce of invoking veterans, AB 688 would put taxpayers on the hook for another state holiday “on which state offices are closed.” It would add a 10th state holiday to the list of paid days off state employees receive.

As of Friday, there was no fiscal note attached to the bill, which was introduced last month and referred to the Assembly Committee on State Affairs.
