Let’s get something straight here concerning a “Republic” & “Democracy”
A republic and a democracy are identical in every aspect except one. In a republic the sovereignty is in each individual person. In a democracy the
sovereignty is in the group.
Republic: That form of government in which the powers of sovereignty are vested in the people and are exercised by the people, either directly, or
through representatives chosen by the people, to whom those powers are specially delegated.
Democracy: That form of government in which the sovereign power resides in and is exercised by the whole body of free citizens directly or indirectly
through a system of representation, as distinguished from a monarchy, aristocracy, or oligarchy. [NOTE: In a pure democracy, 51% beats 49%. In other
words, the minority has no rights. The minority only has those privileges granted by the dictatorship of the majority.]
Let’s see what the legal dictionary has to say
Government; Republican government. One in which the powers of sovereignty are vested in the people and are exercised by the people, either directly,
or through representatives chosen by the people, to whome those powers are specially delegated. In re Duncan, 139 U.S. 449, 11 S.Ct. 573, 35 L.Ed.
219; Minor v. Happersett, 88 U.S. (21 Wall.) 162, 22 L.Ed. 627. [Black's Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition, p. 626]
Democracy. That form of government in which the sovereign power resides in and is exercised by the whole body of free citizens directly or indirectly
through a system of representation, as distinguished from a monarchy, aristocracy, or oligarchy. Black's Law Dictionary, Fifth Edition, pp. 388-389.
In a Democracy, the sovereignty is in the whole body of the free citizens. The sovereignty is not divided to smaller units such as individual
citizens. To solve a problem, only the whole body politic is authorized to act. Also, being citizens, individuals have duties and obligations to the
government. The government's only obligations to the citizens are those legislatively pre-defined for it by the whole body politic.
In a Republic, the sovereignty resides in the people themselves, whether one or many. In a Republic, one may act on his own or through his
representatives as he chooses to solve a problem. Further, the people have no obligation to the government; instead, the government being hired by the
people, is obliged to its owner, the people.
The people own the government agencies. The government agencies own the citizens. In the United States we have a three-tiered cast system consisting
of people ---> government agencies ---> and citizens.
Now look at those last words “people ---> government agencies ---> and citizens”
We are all citizens and as such are subject to and inferior to the government as it has been pointed out by legal definition in Blacks Law by me and a
couple other posters. If we are by that term “inferior to” and “subject to” this conflicts with the point of a “Republic” in which the
government is hired by the people and is obliged to its owner, the people. So with the 14th amendment, we the people were transformed into citizens
and as such are below the government.
We are not a “Republic” in practice. If so we would not have all these violations against it happening.
We are constantly told by our government we are a democracy, and as such, they justify these wars with the premise of “Making the world safe for
This makes no sense. Why make the world safe for democracy when it breeds a dictatorship?
If we really were trying to help other countries, wouldn’t we be better off helping them form their own republics?
But hey, if you can’t swallow those facts lets read what the U.S. Department of State has to say about Democracy
U.S. Department of State
Supporting democracy not only promotes such fundamental American values as religious freedom and worker rights, but also helps create a more
secure, stable, and prosperous global arena in which the United States can advance its national interests. In addition, democracy is the one national
interest that helps to secure all the others.
With these goals in mind, the United States seeks to:
• Promote democracy as a means to achieve security, stability, and prosperity for the entire world;
• Assist newly formed democracies in implementing democratic principles;
• Assist democracy advocates around the world to establish vibrant democracies in their own countries;
The United States remains committed to expanding upon this legacy until all the citizens of the world have the fundamental right to choose those
who govern them through an ongoing civil process that includes free, fair, and transparent elections.
