The Democracy Deception
Most people who use the term “Our Democracy” do not understand the constitutional system that limits the power of our federal government. The essence of “Democracy” is mob rule in which an entire group is controlled by 51% of its members. By a simple majority vote, the rights of any individual or the entire group can be altered or eliminated and new rights invented and conferred. Decisions concerning the life of each member are made by the majority based on group needs not the desires or wishes of the individual.
The United States is a Constitutional Republic. Our Constitution limits the power of both the federal government and the states, specifically preventing any governmental entity from abolishing the Natural Law Rights of the minority, even a minority of one. For centuries, humanity was ruled by a variety of monarchs who owned everything and controlled the lives of their subjects. The founders, having won our freedom from the British monarch King George, believed that each of us was our own sovereign. The concept of “individual sovereignty” means that every person has the right to make choices that determine the course of his own life. Both the rewards for success and the consequences of failure are the responsibility of the individual himself, not of society as a whole.
Those who would change our governmental system to a Democracy are advocating for a political agenda that would destroy the rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. This deceitful and nefarious scheme is a modern-day Trojan Horse inside of which is hidden a Democratic Socialism plan to enslave humanity on a world-wide scale.
We have seen examples of “Democracy” in this country in the past and the present day. A “Lynch Mob” by its very design is a “Democracy” in which the votes of the “lynchers” always outnumber the vote of the “lynchee”. The demonstrators, rioters, and looters in the streets of our cities today often chant, “This is what democracy looks like,” and they are absolutely correct. The majority controls the actions of the entire group, and dissent from their edicts is not tolerated.
It is truly ironic that so many descendants of past victims of lynch mob brutality now seek to impose that lawless system on all of us. Elimination of the filibuster in the Senate will eviscerate any legislative power now held by the minority. Packing the Supreme Court with justices who do not accept the written word of the Constitution as law will create a legal superpower, not elected by the people, with the power to amend the Constitution by decree. At that point, the tyranny of the majority will have become our new reality.
The personal freedoms of each individual, defined by our Constitution and the Bill of Rights, depend on government’s adherence to those documents. Natural Law Rights are only secure if the power of the federal government is strictly limited, if the separation of powers between the three branches is adhered to, and if those in power are directly accountable to people.
Resist Tyranny !
I continue to share your thoughts with friends, some of whom do not access the internet.
Your essays have helped me influence political converts thru rational thinking. Your good advice encourages me to ask potential converts to base their opinions/arguments on facts, not emotion. These people are also disarmed when I advise I will not disparage Mrs Clinton or Mr Biden if they will reciprocate re Mr Trump.
This, your most recent writing, is excellent.
I have asked some black (notice the absence of an upper case “B”) friends if they think the Democratic party’s support of protests have led to violent protests. Many look at me incredulously and say I should know better – ” Of course, that’s the whole idea.”
I am concerned about this year’s election results. You know my mixed feelings pertaining to President Trump and know that Illinois will send its electoral votes in favor of Bidden (intentional). I am far more concerned about the GOP’s loss of the Senate.
Your friend, Fred
Fear is a powerful weapon. The “Jim Crow” laws may not have been the will of a true majority. But they were the will of a very militant minority. We can see that happening with the “Politically Correct” movement & other minority groups. It was fear that gave the KKK its power.
There has always been & always will be those who hate the ideals of our Constitution & the Declaration of Independence. The biggest lie is that we are a “Democracy” and the majority should rule. The truth is that Sovereignty belongs, first, to the States and then to the People. The Federal Government has been given “limited” powers. Those powers have been expanded from the beginning of the country.
Thank you for this educational tid bit! It’s amazing how many registered voters that I have had to explain this concept to during this election cycle!
The personal freedoms of each individual, is technically defined by the Bill of Rights, and dependent not on “government’s adherence to those documents” but the Federal Courts and finally Supreme Court. You guys are laughable so worried about a Democratic Party invasion, when it’s the State laws taking those Bill of Rights away from you, one chip or order at a time. Meanwhile the Democratic Party and Republicans do what they can, “using” the Constitution to simply stay in power, and keep the other party out. But they’re not changing the Constitution. Your Patriotic issues lie with the States I can assure you.
I gotta say that almost no one in America understands the Constitution in America, which is why people believe we have a democracy. The Constitution was never good thing for the citizens. It’s a bankruptcy compact that made us constitutors, which is someone who becomes responsible for anothers debt. We became responsible for the federal governments debts because of the Constitution. Bankruptcy compacts are good for 70 years, then they have to be renewed.
The Constitution has been renewed 4 times, each time exactly 70 years apart coinciding with the 4 bankruptcies of America. Everyone thinks the Constitution is a good thing because it gives them rights. It does not, except the right to a speedy trial, which really isn’t even a right. The document was drafted in secret by career lawyers and politicians, the most dishonest careers on the planet. Even “We the People” doesn’t mean what people think it does. Something that Patrick Henry touched on his speeches at the Virginia Ratification Convention, more specifically, the speeches on June 4, 5, and 7, 1788, By far the most important speeches ever given in American history because he reveals the trickery & deceit by his peers.
The Constitution is what destroyed America and gave our rights & freedoms.to the federal dictatorship we call government. If the Constitution was meant to give us rights there never would have been a need for a Bill of Rights. The Constitution is what enslaved us, so the term “Constitutional freedom” is an oxymoron.Even the most basic issues are overlooked. For example, the actual “Office of President” has never been filled, because Washington intentionally took the wrong oath, under Article II instead of the Executive oath under Article VI. He did it for the power to tax, something the executive didn’t have.. And every president has unknowingly followed suit. Therefore that office has been vacant and will remain so until a president elect takes the Executive oath under Article VI.
Even our right to vote for a president was taken away by the Constitution and given to special electors chosen by the senate. If you read it carefully it mentions our right to vote several times, but never says what the right to vote is for. We have the right to vote for anything except a president, because it specifically mentions who that right to vote for president goes to. That’s the opposite of democracy.
Never forget that the Constitution was written by lawyers and politicians that were freedom loving slave owners.
