Republic vs Democracy



El video:

Our system of government was never intended to be a democracy. Although many believe that we live in one, they have never been asked to vote on the decisions made by said government. Yet they believe that they are empowered just the same. We are not.

*Republic vs Democracy* GO TO 06:10 to learn what they failed to teach you in state run schools.

the major flaw of all *isms is definition of government! the definition is flawed, what is "ruling"?

A republic isn't a Republican Form of Government. The word "republic" comes from the Latin "res publica", meaning 'public affairs'. A republic is simply a type of government where it cannot exclude anyone from its affairs. A republic can be a representative-democracy like the United States or it can be a communist state like China and North Korea were. A Republican Form of Government includes "res publica", but it adds individual sovereignty. In a R.F.o.G., one must consent to be governed and the governed secure Rights. We have this in Law by our National Charter - the Declaration of Independence. It states that people have endowed, inalienable Rights; governments exist to secure Rights and govern those who consent; and any violation of this allows the people to alter or abolish their government to fit these requirements.

There are much too many takers in America now. All in line for the lavish promises made to them by their politicians who borrow from the future in order to deliver. Debt and deficits equal taxes --- the taxes are just deferred to the unborn children. When the rest of the world realizes that we can only monitize our debt to pay them back, the house of cards will collapse. Curious to know who our leaders will blame for America's demise in the hope of fueling Nationalism like Hitler did.

Time to Party again, with this current Obama Administration of tyrannical fecal worms, like it's 1776.

An excellent video that was brought to my attention by +Jon Christner. For years I've been trying to explain to people the difference between *democracy* and *republican* government (not having to do with either US political party). This video does it and more quite well.
