DEMOCRACY VERSUS A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC-HOW MANY KNOW THE DIFFERENCE?
Ignorance of history and 80 years of watching “Progressives” change America, I always thought I lived in a democracy. My life has provided me opportunity to visit 32 countries and 49 states. This included countries controlled by Kings, Dictators, Socialist, Communist and some I never really knew the controlling interest. I have witnessed a variety of US Presidents, including our current President, lead us to control the destiny of other nations via war, bribery, extortion, insurrection and other ways to encourage democracy. Another puzzeling fact is that we never recommend that anyone create a Constitutional Republic. This is what made America the envy of the world even though most Americans are unaware of the difference.
Over the past year I have finally discovered that there are major differences between a “Democracy” and a “Constitutional Republic”. I encourage every freedom loving American to take the time to understand the differences. America’s founders certainly understood the differences when they developed our Constitution and original Bill of Rights. Over the next two hundred years “Progressives” have chiseled away our freedoms by slowly amending and challenging our Republic. We are closer to changing our Constitutional Republic into a Socialist Democracy than the average American can believe.
I have witnessed the creation of a welfare dependent populace that has multiplied dramatically since my boyhood in the 1930s. Instead of working we now have a massive group of underprivileged that are paid “NOT” to work. In the 1930’s they at least did something to earn basic shelter and food. Charity and the churches took care of the ones incapable of working. Paying these people to not work created a need for someone else to do what is called menial jobs. Now we have and are witnessing the creation of another mass of aliens who totally depend on our progressive government to make sure they have work. These progressive changes have resulted in the primary reason we have watched the best healthcare program in the world be destroyed with biased unfunded demands. The same is true for the wealth sharing food assistance programs. I do not need to discuss the explosion of the size of our government workforce, even the biased main stream media expose the waste of big government, occasionally.
How many of you are familiar with the trends that you are watching as all three branches of our government have become totally politicized? Look at the 5-4 Supreme Court decisions that occur on nearly every decision that is rendered. If you do not see the political bias when we have that difference on how to read the Constitution, you are part of the transition to a Socialist Democracy. Do you realize that when the Progressives achieve having more than 50% of the voters working for or being subservient to the government to provide for them with “ACLU Rights”, we will have a one party government and the death of our Republic? This is a result of both republican and democratic progressive Presidents.
The article that I have included as a link will hopefully wake up enough people to get involved. My reason for writing this article is to hopefully protect my heirs rights to freedom long after I depart. Sadly I have some of these Progressives in my family. Trying to awaken them is as futile as watching our “conservative leadership” in Washington trying to wield power and then self-destruct every time they have the opportunity to slow down the progressive train wreck of the Republic.
