Section 4 – Republican form of government guaranteed. Each State to be protected. The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union, a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened), against domestic violence. — United States Constitution Article 4, Section 4
Our country is a Constitutional Republic, not a Constitutional Democracy, however, Barack Obama continually calls it a constitutional democracy and did so again today during a press conference with Angela Merkel. Listen:
He has a purpose in doing so.
The country is being fundamentally transformed from a constitutional republic into a constitutional democracy. The difference between the two is the difference between the United States as it was established and present-day Europe.
Constitutional democracies do not have the safeguards of the separation of powers and states’ rights.
Democracy is an unbridled mobocracy. It is the tyranny of the mob. The constitution limits that but in the United States, we have other safeguards that limit the power of government and the power of the mob. The safeguards are the separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the separation of the individual states from the federal government.
These are under serious attack by Obama and his minions.
A pure unbridled democracy is a political system in which the majority enjoys absolute power by means of democratic elections. In an unvarnished democracy, unrestrained by a constitution, the majority can vote to impose tyranny on themselves and the minority opposition. They can vote to elect those who will infringe upon our inalienable God-given rights. They are described by Thomas Jefferson as elected despots.
A Republic prevents mob rule. You don’t have to wait for thousands or millions of people to make a decision because you have elected representatives who can make the decisions plus there are safeguards built into it.
Democrats like to call the United States a democracy because it enhances the very name of their party.
