How the American Republic degenerates into Democracy and Tyranny

Excellent 10-minute crash course on:

  • How the Left Communism vs. Right Fascism political spectrum is misleading.
  • How the five main types of government (dictatorship, oligarchy, democracy, republic, anarchy) are reducible to two (oligarchy vs. republic).
  • How anarchy (no government) is merely a transition (a tool) from one form of government to dictatorial oligarchy.
  • How our Founding Fathers rejected democracy but founded a Republic of the rule of law, wherein government power is constrained by law in the interest of individual liberty.
  • How republican governments, including those of ancient Rome and the present United States, have an inherent tendency to degenerate into democracy and then into dictatorial oligarchy.

The Long National Nightmare Will Soon Be Over

You see that flash of light in the corner of your eye? That’s your career dissipation light. It just went into high gear.

-Quote from the movie Backdraft

While a victory against Obama is not yet a foregone conclusion, the prospects are getting better every day, and while Mitt Romney is not my first choice to run against him, he is the man that will face off against Obama.

The most important thing now is supporting Romney and bouncing Obama out of the White House and ending this long national nightmare.

If we are serious about taking this country back from Obama and his marxist  stooges then we must support Romney  for President. Obama has to be defeated, if he gets four more years our country is doomed, our economy, our military, our healthcare, and our very freedoms…GONE!

I would never have thought that one man and his minions could do so much damage in such a short time, and Romney is going to have one hell of a mess to clean up and the liberals will be fighting him every step of the way. But unlike Obama, I know he will not make things worse by just throwing money at it and letting the unions and special interests pocket the money just so they can inject influence in electing more liberals.

Have no doubt about it, I detest Barack Obama and he is in a three way tie for the most vile and corrupt politician along with Pelosi and Reid and when I see him leave the White House for the final time Jan 20, 2013, it will a be time to celebrate, but it will also be the start of a long healing process for our country.

The Republic has been battered and bruised by it’s flirtation with socialism at the hands of a narcissistic ego-maniac and his army of idiots and yes-men. Yes, our Republic will survive and it will flourish once again and hopefully on Nov 6, 2012 we can nail the coffin shut on socialism in this country and bury it once and for all.

God help us if we ever let this happen again, our country will not survive another Barack Obama, will not survive another attack by the enemies on the left and we better damn well better be ready to fight back at the first hint of a marxist SOB trying to get his foot in the door at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. We were caught flat footed in 2008, next time we better be on our toes. While we are on the subject of feet, we better be ready to hold the Republicans feet to the fire, it doesn’t matter who they are, if they get power drunk and start the out-of-control spending again we need to let them know we will vote their asses out and replace them with strong Conservatives, no if’s and’s or but’s.

What do we call the U.S.A.?

We’re not a democracy (rule by the people).

We’re not a republic (a representative democracy, i.e., rule by the representatives of the people) either.

We are an Ineptocracy!

Celente: More Crime, Violence, & Societal Breakdown Coming

So is the solution direct voting (or referendum) on every policy issue? That would transform the United States from our present republican system of indirect democracy (via elected representatives) into a direct democracy, which was not what the Founding Fathers instituted.

Do you believe Americans, in the interest of reducing our national debt of 101% of our GDP, will actually vote for cuts in their entitlements?

Who’s to Blame? Politicians or We the People?

How many of the Reps and Senators in Washington, DC, do you think can claim to live up to this wise injunction?

James Madison

“If we resort for a criterion to the different principles on which different forms of government are established, we may define a republic to be, or at least may bestow that name on, a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior.”

James Madison, Federalist No. 39  (H/t PatriotPost)

But then, we really have no one to blame but ourselves. We elected them…and keep reëlecting them –

Corrupt Congressman Charles Rangel

No matter how badly they behave, e.g.,

And no matter how long they’ve served. The late Demonrat Sen. Robert Byrd has the distinction disgrace of having served been the longest in Congress – 57 years! Below is a list of 14 currently serving reps and senators with the longest tenure in Congress, 10 of whom are Demonrats:

  1. Rep. John Dingell (D-Michigan), 55 years
  2. Rep., then Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii), 51 years
  3. Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan), 46 years
  4. Rep. Charles Rangel (D-New York), 40 years
  5. Rep. Bill Young (R-Florida), 40 years
  6. Rep., then Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Mississippi), 38 years
  7. Rep. Pete Stark (D-California), 38 years
  8. Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska), 38 years
  9. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), 36 years
  10. Rep., then Sen. Max Baucus (D-Montana), 36 years
  11. Rep., then Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), 36 years
  12. Rep., then Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), 36 years
  13. Rep. George Miller (D-California), 36 years
  14. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-California), 36 years

Poor James Madison. If he could see us now….
