It’s pretty simple folks. Republicans want a republic and guess what? The US was Founded as what? C’mon, you can get it . . . a REPUBLIC! A representative republic.
Democrats want what their name implies – a democracy. We ARE NOT a pure democracy, nor were we Founded to be one. Lemme explain.
Pure democracy is often likened to ancient Greece. Every person had a separate voice. If there are 100 people in your democracy, well that’ll work, but not when it’s millions and millions. The US was Founded and Framed as a representative republic whereby the people elected “representatives” to “represent” the public’s wishes in a national legislature, or the state houses or even down to the city council level..
For a distinctly American example, New England Town Halls are democracy, whereby every citizen in the town has an equal say. So, would that work if the 100,000 strong city of Richmond, VA wanted to have a town hall and every citizen of voting age had equal say? Talk about a clusterf*#@! See, it is the way it is for a reason.
Democrats want pure democracy, and that is about as workable as a screen door on a submarine. Oh, you can do it, but your ass will drown. Any chance I can get all the libs on the USS Whiplash, that huge, adorned with screen doors, sub of mine? I’ll bet if I offer them government handouts they’ll line up ass deep to a giraffe.
Lefties have it all wrong. When they win an election they claim a mandate to do as they see fit until thrown out. But when Bush got a mandate in ’04, boy oh boy did they scream bloody murder at the thought that Bush would do whatever he wished, regardless of the law and or will of the citizens. Bush did not act in any way inappropriate, but Obama and his sycophant Congress, who passed the Obamacare bill so “the first black president would not fail,” have absolutely no compunction whatsoever about doing whatever they wish, even when 70% or more of the citizens scream NO! And Bush was a bad guy? Puleeze! Get over yourselves.
So, the Framing being what it is; the Founding documents being what they are, and the Court’s rulings in ancient American history being what they were, where did we slide down the slippery slope? We began the slide with the first progressives gaining power in the late 1800’s. Teddy Roosevelt was a Republican progressive, similar to John McCain. But Woodrow Wilson was the first real progressive trouble maker for this nation.
Do you folks know he arrested and jailed Americans for disagreeing with his policies? Look it up! He used the Sedition Acts, an ancient and foul law if one ever existed, to jail Americans who disagreed with him. Oh, and during WWI , he had German Americans locked up for, ya know, being of German descent. And he was a virulent racist. LOOK IT UP!
FDR was the next great progressive and he was a major screw up for this nation. Government exploded under his helm. Most of the precedent we see today for all manner of strictly un-Constitutional acts began with FDR. And let’s remember, he had Japanese Americans locked up for the entire war too. And yet progressives lay claim to some caring, concerned moral high ground? Look up history, and not the history they teach our kids in school, but the real history. It’s everywhere but it is NOT in the curricula the teacher’s unions, progressives all of them, approve of for kid’s school books today.
The most un-American acts ever undertaken in this nation were undertaken with a progressive at the helm. Look it up! Conservatives are largely strict constructionists. That means we favor the Constitution NOT being interpreted, but used as it was written. Who is it who screams day and night the Constitution was written by rich old white men? Progressives! Who is it who favors acting upon the “feelings” and emotions of amorphous majorities that are not real majorities, but are instead the loudest and most foul? Who is it who screams “the Constitution is a living document?”
Folks, the history is so clear it is a joke if one does not know and grasp it. The United States was Founded and Constituted as a Republic and NOT, NOT, NOT a democracy. So when you hear a lefty railing on and on know they are wishful, hopeful, misguided, wrong, uneducated, ignorant of the facts or lying through their teeth!
I might suggest we operate the machine as its designers directed us to, no? I mean, ya don’t put square wheels on a car, right? One does not light themselves on fire and expect by force of will the fire will extinguish itself, right? So in what sane and rational world do we constitute a nation as a republic and then let ANYONE tell us it must be ruled as democracy, or that we are a democracy? The will of that amorphous “majority” they cry about does not exist.
But constant public polling by dozens and dozens of well respected polling organizations are dead clear the vast majorities are firmly aligned AGAINST the progressive and by default, as Dems let progressives hijack their once noble party, the wishes and talking points of Democrats. We are a Constitutional representative republic, and thus should be ruled as designed to be. Trying to run a republic like a democracy is like looking down the barrel of a gun and pulling the trigger to find out why it didn’t go bang the first time ya tried to make it go off!
Learn history folks or be doomed to relive it.
