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.

"When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser." ~ Socrates Consider the following pattern: Someone posts a political video here on YouTube that is pro-right in nature. Then the leftists post comments that deny its' truthfulness without bothering to provide an explanation for how/why it isn't factually accurate; but they do include plenty of name calling directed at both the video and its' producer. And it doesn't stop there. If anyone dares to reply to a leftist's comment in a way that indicates agreement with the video and/or asks for a logical, fact-based argument for how/why the video is erroneous the leftists respond by calling them names as well. The above quote from Socrates explains why this pattern exists.

This is idiotic. If the People don't consent to a republic, then it's an oligarchy; and if they DO consent, then it's a democracy-- a democracy which simply CHOOSES a republic as their form of government, but has the power to OVERRULE it if they want. How much simpler could it be? As for the word "democracy" appearing in the Declaration of Independence, it's quite clear from the words "governments are established among men, deriving their just powers from consent of the governed... it is the right of the People to alter or abolish it, and elect new government." And the Constitution was an international compact among the states, ADOPTED by majority vote among the People of each state; meanwhile the states are OWNED by their respective Peoples! These obtuse statists will never learn; they fancy a "republic" as a corporate abstract with a mind of its own, which magically keeps the government from violating its rules-- "because the Constitution SAYS so!" But can anyone TRULY be that stupid-- that naive? I think not... rather, I believe that underlying this hatred of democracy-- for the right of the People to simply APPROVE of their own government, rather than be ruled by force by a self-appointed elite minority-- is simply an elitist conceit that the People are UNFIT to consent to their government, and that only the self-appointed elite know what's good for the rest of us.... whether we like it or not.. And it doesn't work that way; if the People don't agree to their government, then they are SLAVES to it. Simple as that. As such, it wasn't "plenty" that caused the fall of the Roman Republic; by "the people forgetting what freedom was;" it was the fact that the People had no power to OVERRULE the Republic, and thus corruption was able to take over by special-interest lobbies... .just as they do now. Ever since the Lincoln administration likewise overthrew democracy, the US has likewise become a global empire, in which lobbyists controlled policy, thus bankrupting the economy and expanding outward through war in the name of the "Pax Romana" of "liberating the world from barbarism--" or as we put it now, "American exceptionalism" of "making the world safe for democracy." This video demonstrates the types of brain-dead falsehoods that rationalize the fundamental problems with the American system-- and the absurd conclusion that it can be cured by simply "voting for the right people," rather than OVERRULING them by popular vote.

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.

Democracy is a fitting term for Americans these days. It applies to a concurred people. America wasn't concurred by an army with guns. It was concurred by an army of pencil pushers and bankers. And that is also why we have to bring Democracy to other countries. The parasite thieves are not satisfied with the power and wealth they have stolen from people so far. They want it all, and the power to make everyone do as they say.

The idea you put forth on anarchy is complete rubbish. Doesn't matter the form of government you put in place, its always slavery. People of like minds can live peacefully in a community without dictatorship or threats of violence. Doesn't matter who wishes to lead, having a person on top takes power from a well informed person to go about his life. Native Americans and other native tribes furnished in small tribe/large family units with little law other then natural law and a non aggression principal. Even when faced with threats the didn't need to fall in rank to defend themselves. Every one who was responsible for defense knew the tactics to warfare and would fight without a jack ass with a bugle sounding charge. Crime would lower dramatically because people would naturally find a hole that needs filling, and would feel the value of labor with trade in a truly free market. Anarchy is not chaos, it is not violence, it is not being untrustworthy. Anarchy is freedom based in peace, self worth, and community. Government grows, spends, forces you to divide your hard work for a greater good. Bull shit. Taxation is wrong im all cases. And not necessary in todays open source world. Ive traded labor for goods, labor for labor, goods for labor. And without a government to suppress individuals to express genius and inventiveness then we would all soon flourish. We could run cars on water in the early 90s We can power every house in America for free with tidal energy. Hell in early 1900s a patent was filed for a 100,000 hour light bulb. And it wasn't filled with the toxic waste we have today. Democracy, republic, capitalism, communism, fascism, any-ism all ideas 1000s of years old. Your telling me we haven't yet had a better idea? Or are you still stuck in platos cave watching the shadows on the wall reading the Republic?

Democracy is unproductive Progress is weakened by constant bickering between ideologies

Philly Studmuffin you are a complete idiot. The description you give of Nazis is nothing like the 'lunatic right wing' in this country. Since when does the 'tea party' want 'corporations and government to join'? The whole movement is about limiting government and getting them out of corporations way. Therefore the only actual argument you made in your retarded yet long comment is completely ridiculous. About the rest of the video, can you explain how it doesnt make sense or are you just going to say it was full of 'right wing asenine arguments' when in fact it made total logical sense. Lets hear your logical facts to refute their claims. Oh wait, you disabled replies to your comment because youre too stupid to defend your stupidly biased opinions. This country was created to be a democratic republic for very logical reasons and idiots like you have given more and more power to government and we're on our way to ruin just like Rome.
