So, What Should We Do?

The first step to any solution is to understand the problem.  Study the issue and become comfortable with it.  At our web site,, there are some books listed which can give you and some friends a good grasp of the issue.  Also there is a video from YouTube which is real relivent to the issue.  Become as knowledgeable on the subject as is possible.

The problem is that the American people have been told by so many for so long that they believe this is a democracy.  Hopefully this blog will be of some value.  Our associated web site, http//, can be used as a learning center and used to email articles or to send a link to the website.  The copy of What Democracy?, with Ben Franklin on it not only catches the attention but seems to be pretty understandable and those that disagree can find enough information to interest them enough to check it out more.  What Democracy? has a copywright on it but as long as it is used as it is it can be copied and faxed or mailed or handed out.

If one person in ten would send a copy of What Democracy? or a link to to ten persons  the message would be distributed to a very large number of people.  Hopefully within the next couple of months a good number of fellow citizens well receive a copy of What Democracy? several times.  One exposure generally isn’t enough to really effect most people.

This nation is at a critical point in history and if the tide is not changed now the conciqences could be a very long term problem for generations to come.  The political and economic situation is almost out of control.

What Democracy? has been handed out at my retail store during elections for about fifteen years and this is the first year it has really been paid much attention.  The political climate has changed most people seem to realize the situation is critical and are more willing to do something than ever before.  So, seize the opportunity and lets change the direction of the country and the world.  We really have no choice.

But, I have left the most important to last.  This is a conflict between the forces of good and evil, no not Star Wars, but God and Satin and their minions.  As a result the most important issue is that of prayer and sacrifice.  Without Gods asistance there is no hope, things have gone to far.  But that is why people are so interested because they can see it is critical.

May God Bless Our Republic.

What Difference Does It Make, Republic or Democracy?

When voting, the man that understands that this is a Republic looks for the man who is moral enough to do what is right and is interested in following the laws of: #1 God; #2 The Constitution; #3 Laws of the State. The voters attitude is basically a long term outlook with a concern for future generations. The man who personifies the ideals of a Republic could be a juror in that he is disinterested in himself and is interested in doing his duty.

Whereas, when voting, the man that understands that this is a Democracy looks for the man who is going to vote as he wants him to vote. The attitude is basically, “ Me, me, me – Now, now, now“. The man who personifies the ideals of a Democracy could be a labor union representative whose job it is to get the best deal for his people pretty much regardless of how it effects anyone else.

If the electorate believes that this is a Republic then it will elect (as a rule) moral men who will strive to do their best for the common good. And if the electorate believes that this is a Democracy it will elect amoral men who will have their own interest at heart no matter what the cost to others. In reality the representative of a Democracy will be looking to serve himself and will use the power he has to promote himself and those who will promote him.

One of the keys to understanding this issue is understanding that even though this is a Republic, if the voters and the elected officials believe it is a Democracy then through the actions of the voters and their elected officials the Republic will cease to act as a Republic and will act and react as a Democracy.

The natural tendency of men is to embrace a Democracy, for man is naturally selfish. When the men of a Republic fail to learn and teach, this is a Republic, it’s values and how it works a Republic naturally gives way to a Democracy. And once the statesman of the Republic is removed from the process of governing, those interested in controlling the masses do so by the use of events brought about to create mass hysteria in order to give the demagogues the opportunity to implement the laws they want. By this route a Democracy naturally gives way to a Dictatorship. This is why Benjamin Franklin, when asked what form of government had been installed, replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

What Democracy?

Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one nation under God indivisible
with liberty and justice for all.

Constitution of the United States of America
Article IV; Section 4
The United States shall guarantee to every State in the Union,
a republican form of government….

Surprised there was no mention of democracy?

Let’s take a quick look at the difference between a Representative Republic and a Representative Democracy.

A Republic is a government by law.
A Democracy is a government by majority rule.
A Representative of a Republic (Congressman etc.) is an elected official whose duty it is to make up the laws.
A Representative of a Democracy is an elected official who is to do, as hose who elected him want him to do.
Under a Representative Republic the most important qualification for election is to be a moral man so he can uphold the law and understand hat would make a good law.  Good laws are based on morals.
Under a Representative Democracy the most important qualification for election is that the one running for election be solely interested in serving the public welfare and that he have no interest above the public welfare.
Under a Representative Republic the representative is to uphold that which is right regardless of what the majority wants.
Under a Representative Democracy the representative is to do what the people want regardless of what’s right.
Under a Representative Republic you are looking for the most moral man.
Under a Representative Democracy you are looking for an amoral man.  That is, a man who would not have morals standing in the way of the majorities will.

Although this country is supposed to be a Representative Republic, the people have been made to believe it is a Representative Democracy.  In the recent past when the people have gone to the polls they have looked for the man who promised he would give the people what they wanted. The moral man who said, “ You can’t have what you want because we would have to steal it from someone else.” Didn’t have a chance.

So if you wonder why we no longer have statesmen for representatives, its probably because you haven’t been looking for statesmen but have been looking for so called, “public servants”, who are one step away from common criminals looking for the opportunity to serve themselves.

This is a Republic not a Democracy.  Look for the moral man.
