What is a Democracy?
From the Greek, it means "rule of the people".
In modern days, the basic tenet of a democracy is that the people vote on laws that they are to be governed by.
There are several forms of democracy.
Direct-where all people of the country decide on the laws.
Representative-where the people elect their representatives to decide on the laws.
Now what I have been seeing a lot of is our representatives, the MSM, and the people of the US keep saying we are a democracy. This is not true. The
true form that the United States of America has is called a "Representative Constitutional Republic".
Representative Constitutional Republic
Well, we can all agree what the Representative means, but what is the Constitutional Republic mean?
Constitutional Republic-Constitutional Republic Wikipedia
A constitutional republic is a state where the head of state and other officials are elected as representatives of the people, and must govern
according to existing constitutional law that limits the government's power over citizens.
Now, Wiki is kind of right here. They bring into it though the Representative. This is not a part of a Constitutional Republic though. We could form a
government where there was no representatives and still be a Constitutional Republic. But they are close.
Now Wiki goes onto say several different things including this-
In a constitutional republic, executive, legislative, and judicial powers are separated into distinct branches and the will of the majority of the
population is tempered by protections for individual rights so that no individual or group has absolute power.
We could all go onto say that a Constitutional Republic could be divided up into a different format and still be considered such. We all know Wiki is
adjusted so to speak.
Here is my view on what a Constitutional Republic means to me. I have pondered on it quite a lot and probably be paraphrasing people of the past.
The most important component of a CR is the Constitution. It specifically lays out EXACTLY what is allowed by the government. This compenent of a CR
is for the protection of the people from the government, but is also a protection from the majority
. That is the one MAJOR problem with
Democracies. If the majority wants to subjugate the minority, they can.
Now the US Constitution is required to have states that are based upon the Republic format. It is directly stated within the Constitution. Now, this
is one thing a lot of us forget is that the states may be required to have a Republic Format, but are not in anyway shape or form required to follow
the tenet of the Federal Government. They are allowed to follow their own Constitution and their own social contracts with the people, as long as
their Constitution does not infringe upon the tenets of the US Constitution.
Now here is the Conspiracy.
We have heard we must keep the world safe for Democracy. It gets pounded on us everywhere we turn. Yes, a RCR is a form of Democracy. But, pure
Democracy is as bad as any other form of government if a Constitution is not installed to provide protection.
When I hear someone say the US is a Democracy it is like someone is running their nails down a chalkboard. When I hear the Will of the People it is
the same thing.
What is with this Will of the People thingy? If the WOTP decides to have slaves, is that all right? If the WOTP says we should go bomb some foreign
government, should we?
Or in today's discussion, if the WOTP decide to force the minority or even the majority to pay for something they do not want, should we?
We are going down the wrong road people. We are going back in history instead of forward. Do you not see the direction that we are on has brought us
to this mess? The Fall of the Republic is at hand. Not the fall of the Democracy, the Republic.
Yes, the 16th Amendment was bad, yes the Federal Reserve was bad. Yes, several socialist attempts have shown us the folly of going backward, instead
of forward. Yes, we have Mega Corps running rough shod over us. Yes we have corrupt representatives not FOLLOWING THE CONSTITUTION. Yes we have the
One World Government maneuver happening.
ALL IN THE NAME OF DEMOCRACY!
I give you the Democracy Conspiracy.
