The Atlantic carried an article today entitled, “Why Obama Fears For Our Democracy.” I’m not going to cover the article’s content. Like many such articles carrying misleading and inflammatory titles, it’s not worth my time or yours.
I will, however, talk about the highly misleading title, particularly as there’s absolutely nothing “democratic” about either the federal or state governments in these United States of America.
Obama is either worried out of ignorance about nothing i.e. something that doesn’t actually exist, or he’s still attempting to OVERTHROW the proper government of the United States of America.
The United States neither is, nor has, a “democracy.” Our Founding Fathers considered AND REJECTED a democratic form of government. They chose a REPUBLIC, instead, a fact highlighted in Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution for the United States of America: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government.”
This fact is echoed in the State Constitutions of ALL 50 States. If it wasn’t, those states would not have been approved by Congress for admittance to the Union.
Everyone who continues to insist in any way, shape, manner or form the U.S. is some sort of “democracy” is either heinously ignorant of American Civics and American History, or they’re LYING to the American people. Regardless of which major malfunction is theirs, they’re IGNORANT about WHY our Founding Fathers rejected democracy: Throughout history, democracies have always tended to erode, first into socialism before quickly dissolving into anarchy, followed by either a hostile takeover by another country or the establishment of a long-lasting Republic from within.
Republics are government by the rule of LAW, not by whim of a majority. They provide both fairness as well as longevity because they’re rooted in the firm foundations of established law instead of being blown about by whim like reeds bending to every breeze from every direction.
Out of 196/197 countries on planet Earth, do you know how many true democracies exist?
NONE. Not ONE single country exists as a pure democracy. NONE!
Out of the 46 countries that claim ties to democracy in one form or another, they’re hybrids of other forms of government, including parliaments, monarchies, constitutions, commonwealths, and federations. – CIA World Factbook
Guess what type of government exists in the United States of America?
It’s a Constitutional, Federal Republic. – CIA World Factbook.
- It is NOT a “representational democracy” as I was VERY WRONGLY taught in the 8th grade.
- It is NOT a “democratic republic” as I was VERY WRONGLY taught in the 11th grade.
- It is NOT a “democracy” as countless demoncraps and Mudstream Media enjoy blathering about all over the news.
The United States of America IS NOT NOW and NEVER HAS BEEN ANY sort of “democracy.”
We are a REPUBLIC. Specifically, the United States of America is a Constitutional, Federal Republic.
The very idea that our country was ever anything BUT a Republic is a LIE told by either ignorant or subversive people to the masses to garner support for the democrat party. I refer to them as Demoncraps for obvious reasons, namely the fact that they’re lying little pieces of shit.
I wish I could sugar-coat that, but really, who wants crap to be sugar-coated? Yuk! I’d much rather be told the truth that it’s crap, knowing know amount of sugar-coating would ever change the fact that it’s crap, so that I can side-step the crap instead stepping in it.
Crap it is, however, as is anything whereby entire news agencies systematically LIE to the people of an entire country.
Furthermore, I would hope other people are more interested in hearing the truth than having their ears tickled with lies. Who wants to be mislead? I certainly do not, and I would sincerely hope other Americans feel much the same way.
