US Republican Senator Mike Lee came under fire for writing on Twitter, “Democracy is not the goal,” following the debate between Vice President Mike Pence and his Democratic rival Kamala Harris.
In a tweet he wrote to me: “We are not a democracy… Democracy is not the goal, but freedom, peace and prosperity. We want the human condition to flourish. An archaic democracy can frustrate that.”
Democrats quickly linked Lee’s remarks to the November election, as Republicans risk losing a majority of seats in the Senate and the White House.
Prominent lawmakers described his tweet as an indication of authoritarian tendencies infiltrating President Donald Trump’s party.
Democratic Representative Ted Liu replied: “Dear Senator Mike Lee: I note that you are elected by the people of your state. America is a representative democracy. That means we are a democracy too.”
“Mike Lee is against democracy. If this isn’t a warning about authoritarianism, I don’t know what this is,” said Nira Tandin, a former Obama administration official.
