So pretty much what Libertarians want is to rewrite the Constitution of the United States, as well as the Bill of Rights, and write a new Declaration
of Independence. In conclusion, you want to create your own country. A country in which every man rules himself, hence anarchy rules, which is
nothing more than chaos.
If every person was left to govern himself/herself, as an example, people will be breaking traffic laws because everyone would be governing
himself/herself, and ignoring any laws they want to, some people would be drinking alcohol meanwhile driving just because it "is nobody's
business". People would be free to do as they please without any consequences etc, etc, etc. You get my point.
There is one reason why Democrats and Republicans at times seem the same, and one of those reasons is that originally there was one party in which all
the forefathers agreed on, and that was for every American to be an advocate of the Republic, which is what a true Republican is, and how this nation
was founded, as a Republic. There is another reason why they seem to be trying to destroy the Republic lately, which is in great part due to
corruption, but anyway let's leave that for later.
The forefathers of this nation made evident, and to the point what sort of government should be guaranteed in the Republic, and they wrote it in the
Constitution so that future generations of Americans will never forget, but of course future generations of Americans for the most part do not concern
themselves with reading those same living documents by which this nation was founded, even though people from almost all of the parties like to refer
to one, or two parts of the Constitution, or the Declaration of Independence, while ignoring the rest.
Article 4 Section 4 of the United States Constitutions clearly states:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them
against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic
Then the forefathers began to argue, actually even before they agreed on the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and every principle which
this nation is supposed to uphold. So the Forefathers began bickering once again, and decided to start making their own parties.
Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison decided to create the Democratic-Republican Party, which once again started as one party, and was in response to
Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton's Federalist Party, or Federalists.
The advocates of the Democratic-Republican Party saw themselves for the most part as Republicans, but sometimes as Democrats, until they started to
split up, and formed the two main parties which have been bickering back and forth for over a hundred years. Then more people started to come up with
their own parties, adding more to the confusion, meanwhile most Americans forgot to make themselves knowledgeable about those living documents which
are the spirit of this nation, and it's backbone adding even more to the confusion.
Now we have apart from the Democrat, and Republican Party, the Constitutionalists, the Anarchists, the Liberals, the Socialists, the Communists, the
Corpocracy, and probably I am missing some, but at the end this is only dividing Americans more, meanwhile everyone wants to have their own form of
government, which will forever destroy the Republic which our forefathers managed to agree on, if only for a sort period of time.
As for the claim that Republicans love war, and Democrats love Freedom, obviously such person is forgetting American history, because in fact
Democrats have started as many, if not more wars than Republicans. Even Clinton before he gave the office to Bush had already set up an international
organization that was set up for military action against Iraq.
Unfortunately war is part of any mayor country, and more so since there are several different factions, and groups with different goals which
contradicts what the other mayor players want. The Superich will side with whichever faction wins their version of a New World Order.
Anyway, Americans shouldn't try to divide from each other. This is a Republic, it is not a Democracy. In a Democracy the mob rules, and if the mob
votes for it, they can take away the right of minorities.
Iraq under sadam was a Democracy, just like Germany under Hitler was a democracy, both countries had the mayority rule over minorities, and that's
not what the Republic is.
Most Republicans in power are not representatives to what real Republicans are supposed to be. A Republican is an advocate of the Republic as agreed
by the forefathers, and is against all forms of dictatorships.
United the nation will stand, and the Republic will survive, divided we will only give more power to TPTB.
As for tests.... anyone can come up with a similar test, and rig it any way they want to. In any major society a party in which each member rules
completely himself/and herself and each person can decide what rules apply, and which rules don't apply to him, or her will only bring chaos at the
Americans should all see themselves as Sons, and Daughters of the Republic.
