Wait just a moment. Something sounds “off” in the title to this article. “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the U.S.”…O.K. that’s right. “…and to the democracy for which it stands”. That sounds---hold on, that sounds wrong. Doesn’t the Pledge say, “…To the REPUBLIC for which it stands”? Come to think of it, it does! Was Rev. Francis Bellamy (a ‘Christian socialist and the author of our P.O.A.) wrong when he used the word “republic” rather than “democracy”? If the word ‘democracy’ means the same as ‘republic’ what’s the big deal? Au contraire, mon ami ou m’amie, the two words-- ‘Democracy and Republic’ have OPPOSITE meanings in the realm of governmental forms, and to assume equal meanings can lead a person—or a nation—into major troubles! Let’s delve into this confusion in more detail.
What has always been (until the contentious 2016 Presidential election) the most prominent characteristic of the Constitutional Republic given to us by our Founders? It has been the more or less peaceful transition of governmental power from one presidential administration to the next—in many cases from one political party to a different one. That was what almost always separated us from the wild and mob dominated and violent “politics” of other countries on this planet until the fraudulent election of Nov. 3, 2020 exploded in our faces, when the “rule of law” under our former Republic was replaced by “the rule of men” (and despicable and deceiving men to boot) under our miraculously born “democracy”. With the election of the lawfully chosen Donald Trump in November, 2016 as our 45th President, the fabric of the “robe of Presidential investiture” began to unravel in a tangle of lies, conspiracy theories, invectives, incriminations, falsehoods, crimes, impeachments, Democrat ravings, and downright malevolence! That robe was totally shredded by evil anti-Constitution plotters after our most recent pseudo-election of Nov. 3, 2020!
To these malevolence’s was added in that election the greatly perfected “art” of Democrat electronic/cyber vote stealing to deny President Trump’s re-election, and all done deliberately by the purveyors of perfidy, the mad dogs of mendacity, the sellers of socialist stupidity—the disgusting politicians I now refer to as the “KLAN OF NEW BOLSHEVIKS”—i.e. the former Democrat Party, and ALL who support their anti-American and anti-liberty collectivist nonsense (including for certain the top level administrators of our no-longer very honorable F.B.I.), aided and abetted by the two scurvy commie socialists who have illegally usurped the roles of President and Vice President of the U.S.! Watching the shenanigans of the scurrilous Marxist/socialist/progressive New Bolsheviks now infesting the District of Criminals and Corruption, who are recklessly seeking to overturn our proven and “ancient ways”, it’s becoming ever more apparent that “democracy” is not good for our American nation, and never will be! Had we paid attention to the wisdom and warnings of our Founding generation, we would have refused to have slowly but surely plunged the knives of perfidy and mendacity into the back of our erstwhile Republic, yelling all the while in the halls of government how much we all love America! Et tu, Nancy? Et tu, Chuck? Et tu, Mitch? Et tu, proditors!
Why is this happening to us? Why did the usual mostly peaceful transition of power begin to corrode before our eyes even long before Donald Trump was sworn in as our lawfully elected President in January, 2017? Why was it exponentially intensified by the far left wing “AntiFa” mob bullies and leftist mobs (and even far right wing anarchists), who have been threatening our peace, our property, and our lives, as they’ve flooded our streets and universities with race and class hate and Marxist drivel and mob violence, doing the bidding of the “Gnomes of Ultimate Power”—people like the scurrilous ex-Nazi George Soros (CFR), Michael Bloomberg (CFR), Tom Steyer, and their allies who control the kept whores of the main stream media. Why are we still pathetically sitting on our hands as we did for the first four years of Donald Trump’s administration, watching our undoubtedly duly elected (on Nov. 3, 2020) President Trump being mercilessly attacked DAILY as he was during the four years of his first term, and even now that he’s out of office, by these New Bolshevik LOW LIFE anti-constitutionalists in our House of Representatives and Senate, aided by the cowardly RINOS in our Senate (led openly, now, by former Majority Leader Mitch McConnell—a well known lover of China and the profitable beneficiary of the Chinese business interests of his wife, Elaine Chao’s (CFR), Chinese family, and encouraged by the back-stabbing RINO, Mitt Romney), as he struggled valiantly, and mostly ALONE for four years to try to save our disintegrating nation from the hordes of lawless, desperate, disgusting, and dangerous INVADERS from south of our border? (And make no mistake about it—THESE PEOPLE ARE INVADERS even if they have been “invited” to come among us by that senile socialist, President Joe Biden—people who intend to harm Americans, some with just the intentions of looting our overly generous and essentially bankrupt welfare system, but others with the intentions of unleashing violence and bloodshed and racial/religious warfare upon us in our own cities and neighborhoods.)
Are we Americans losing what has always been our political strength? Are we slowly succumbing to the WRONG belief that our governmental system is a “democracy”, was designed as such from our beginning, and can be easily changed by violent mobs and cunning politicians? Democracies can be, you know. Just exactly WHAT is “democracy” and why did our Founders fear it? I’d like to share with you a penetrating article from the Blog: Center For Self Governance. It was written by Bill Norton, and published on Jan. 23, 2017. I quote from this easily understood explanation as to WHY what is happening to us IS happening:
“…(H)istory has proven the road to mass democracy will lead to turmoil, contention, anarchy, and will necessarily result in a tyrannical oligarchy that will be difficult to reverse….
“America’s Framers sought a form of government that would eliminate the extremes of tyranny and anarchy. George Washington described this
human struggle wherein “there is a natural and necessary progression from the extreme (RIGHT) of anarchy to the extreme (LEFT) of tyranny”. (Circular to the States, June 8, 1783). Jefferson hoped that “the pendulum will rest in the middle”. (Letter to William Smith, Feb. 2, 1788). “The Framers analyzed history to identify what forms of government would best promote liberty rather than tyranny or anarchy. They discovered NO single form. They did discover that parts of one added to pieces of another provided a solution and from these created a unique mixed form of government with ‘separation of powers’ and ‘checks and balances’. Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what is for dinner. Great for the wolves, bad for the sheep. It could be said that our Republic is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner, with a LAW that none of the three can be on the menu!
“All societies are made up of warring factions and have been throughout history…. The Framers realized that the only way to have good government is to provide the best representation for each faction. The way to accomplish this is with a ‘mixed’ form of government, which includes the most advantageous parts of a democracy, republic, oligarchy, and monarchy. They knew that mass (pure) democracy would become the tyranny of the majority, which has proven to be just as incompatible with freedom as any tyrant on earth. John Adams said, ‘While (democracy) lasts it is more bloody than either (aristocracy or monarchy)’…. (D)emocracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet, that did not commit suicide’. (Letter to John Taylor, Dec. 17, 1814).
“James Madison said in Federalist #10: ‘…democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have
in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their
deaths’. It is clear the Framers did NOT create a democracy, nor did
they even consider it. Some democratic principles are good, and must be kept, but if we remove the safeguards against the tyranny of democracy, we will be left in ruins like every other democracy in history.”
Read that last sentence again, my fellow Americans. Let the truth of that statement sink in. If the wisdom incorporated in our system of government becomes disregarded and discarded, as I fear that it is, our beloved American Constitutional Republic will disintegrate into ruins “like every other democracy in history”. Continuing with Bill Norton’s article:
“We are witnessing the tyranny of democracy being played out during this current transition of power (he wrote this shortly after President Trump’s victory in November, 2016). Refusal to accept the outcome of
the election based on the popular vote; protests that lead to riots in the streets; boycotts and calling for the elimination of the Electoral College, are just a few symptoms of being conditioned to believe our form of government is a pure democracy.
“Voting is the most democratic part of our institutions. It gives the majority of the people direct control over political offices and legislation through the referendum and initiative processes. But care must be taken to check the mob rule mentality that often accompanies democracy ‘actions’. We need a variety of voting methods to prevent mass democracy. The problems that come with the democratic action of voting are kept in check by the law, appointed positions, the Electoral College, federalism, and legislative bodies.
WHY THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE?
“In the (2016) presidential election, wasn’t each candidate promoted as the ‘savior of our nation’? The rallying cries on both sides declared that if their candidate didn’t win, America would not survive four more years. We act as if we are electing a king; then we get angry when they act like a king. This is…predictable in a democratic election, and is exactly why we do NOT have a purely democratic method for electing the POTUS. It was for this very reason the Framers wisely created the Electoral College… (which) was specifically designed to prevent two things:
- To keep the presidential office from becoming that of a ‘king’, a politically charged popularity contest in which the new president only caters to the majority that put them in office…
- To shore up the principle of Federalism…in which our rights can be protected by one level of government if they are abused by another level of government. The E.C. keeps the presidential election local rather that nationalizing it. If we do away with the Electoral College, the POTUS would be elected by a few populous states and larger cities…--hardly a true representation of the people of America.
“One of the most dangerous things about democracy is the ability of the majority to vote away the natural rights of a few. This danger is safeguarded by law. We institute specific rules and laws that cannot be changed by a simple vote of the people. Laws must be filtered through multiple bodies representing various branches of government. For example—“democracy” in the House of Representatives, “oligarchy” in the Senate, “monarchy” in the President, “oligarchy in the Courts, and finally back to “democracy” in the jury (system). This process protects each of us from the tyrannies of mob rule, an elite class, or a monarch.
WHY THE 17TH AMENDMENT WAS WRONG
“There is great wisdom in directly electing the House of Representatives every two years. That gives the people a house of their own to directly affect the federal government. But the House can be emotional and moved by every whim. To check that volatility we have the Senate, but we corrupted that check in 1913 with (passage of) the 17th Amendment—the direct election of Senators. We turned BOTH houses into ‘democracy’. We are left with a self-serving Senate that neither represents the people nor the states. We must rethink the 17th Amendment and return to appointing our Senators by State legislatures, as originally designed (in the U.S. Constitution).
“Our legislative bodies protect us from a pure democracy by establishing fixed laws through a lengthy, deliberative process… (which) guards our legislative process from the tyranny of the majority. Our system was based on a careful study of history, but we have abandoned some fundamental discoveries without an understanding of the history or purpose those principles had in the first place. Most of our meddling has been to either centralize or democratize the system. Ironically, the two represent a simultaneous move closer to tyranny and anarchy, the very extremes our original republican system was built to avoid…
“Democracy is a temptation not easily refused. But too much of a good thing is NOT a good thing. Too much democracy is violent and destructive, as evidenced by the current political climate. We must keep the necessary guards in place to keep just the right amount of democracy, while protecting our freedoms from mob rule. We must abandon the road to mass democracy and return to simply keeping our Republic as the Framers designed it”
Bill Norton’s observations are compatible with the ORIGINAL INTENT of the wise men who framed and codified our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Unfortunately, in our day other men merely pretending to be wise have decided that our Founders’ thoughts and protections for the American people are hopelessly outmoded, old fashioned relics of a bygone era, designed only for a small population of homogeneous states and well informed voters. We accept this deliberate mendacity at our peril! We don’t protect our “chickens” by giving a small band of “foxes” the keys to the chicken house, and we can’t protect and defend our Constitution and our freedoms by giving total power to those “sly foxes” in the District of Criminals and Corruption and in the ALWAYS pro-progressive (Democrat) and anti-conservative main stream media, by allowing them to tell us how wrong our Founders were.
We, the patriotic people of America, cannot be silent and allow the despicable agenda of the deliberate attempted destruction of our (in my opinion) legally elected president, Donald Trump, by the treacherous Bolsheviks of the increasingly SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT PARTY to proceed without any strong protests from us! We are the people who without doubt re-elected President Trump on Nov. 3, 2020. We are the people whose futures are being increasingly imperiled by the vermin of the left. Please make sure YOUR House representative and YOUR two senators, and anyone else that has some influence, know of YOUR opposition to this treachery—this incipient TREASON—by the anti-American Democrat Socialist Party in its battle to hide its illegal voter fraud on and after Nov. 3, 2020, to continually deny our surely LEGALLY re-elected President Trump from using the courts as they were intended to be used, and implement their plans to convert the U.S.A. into their “vision” of a Socialist Peoples’ Republic—i.e. a communist tyranny-- run by THEM, as Comrades Sleazy Joe and Kommie-La and their masters are in the process of doing.
Don’t be fooled by their syrupy platitudes that they are “true patriots” who are struggling to uphold our Constitutional values against an “out of control” ex-president and his vast army of supporters. THEY ARE NOT SUCH! They are the BARBARIANS not only “at” the gates, but are already “within” the gates of our government and most of our cultural institutions, and they are threatening to loot, ravage, and destroy those hard-won institutions of freedom just like all the barbarians of history have attempted and, in some cases, accomplished. And for certain don’t let yourself be “bamboozled” by the silly “riddles” and “prognostications” that have been emanating from that cryptic and probable DISINFORMATION SPECIALIST known as “Q”. Concentrate on listening to CLEAR SPEAKING true Constitutional patriots who speak in real truth and offer common sense methods to RESIST the collectivist evil that is swiftly enveloping all of us!
These are NOT our fellow Americans who are merely pursuing a somewhat different vision of American freedoms and greatness because they “won” the previous election. They are cultural and political MARXISTS, despisers of liberty, lovers of total control, hiding in the halls of government and education and communications and our financial system, even lurking in our top military ranks in the Pentagon and in our president’s own White House staff and advisors, and who are seeking to totally overthrow the institutions of freedom that have given the American people, over most of our existence, the greatest degree of liberty and prosperity in the long and painful history of mankind! If you—if we—value those liberties and the heritage of freedom so painfully won by our ancestors, WE MUST NOT LET THESE LOVERS OF COLLECTIVIST TYRANNY WIN OVER US—NOT NOW—NOT EVER! WE MUST TAKE WHATEVER ACTION WE MUST, PEACEFUL IF POSSIBLE, BUT VIOLENT IF ALL ELSE FAILS, JUST LIKE OUR REVOLUTIONARY ANCESTORS DID! NEVER SURRENDER to the treacherous and Satanic barbarians of collectivism that are threatening our liberties as never before. The violent and gruesome history of the 20th century should be ample proof of what happens to people—even patriots—who are overcome by the forces of Satanic, collectivist evil. If freedom fails in this nation, as it might if enough of us just don’t care to preserve it, we’ll have only ourselves at which to point the finger of blame. And God’s enemies—the children of Satan—will laugh over our graves!
