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.

Awesome, awesome video. This should be required watching before voting, as a matter of fact, this should just be playing on loop outside all polling places.

This video was produced by right-wing charlatans. Nazism and fascism are left wing? On what planet? Any and all credibility in this video was out the window and removed from reality during the first 2 minutes. This is nothing more than lunatic Tea Party ideologies and exemplifies their ridiculous and imaginary historical explanation of lies. Fascism (the Nazis were fascist) is a joining of corporations and government, without consequence, accountability, or responsibility. The German people attempted to drag the factory owners and the corporate executives out into the street to lynch them after World War II (because the people finally realized the oligarchy and the religiously mind poisoned allowed the destruction of their country). A few remaining police and/or MPs saved some of their radical, sorry butt's from being hung or shot but many were rightfully destroyed (but not enough). Only low-grade, sheep-like imbeciles would fall for this sorry, idiotic, right wing film and it's asinine explanations. This is a warped, imaginary history that sounds like something Sara Palin, Michele Bachmann, Paul Ryan or other dishonest financial charlatans would promote to keep people stupid. Notice how these same charlatans meld their nonsense with religious mind poison to promote the ultimate but imaginary master/slave relationship and archaic blood sacrifices? It's complete bullshit designed to herd sheep that welcome wishful thinking gibberish. Here's a much easier way to explain today's oligarchy, fascist nonsense: Play the game of Monopoly with 3 other friends, but start out with these simple but factual rules: Player 1 (representing the oligarchy) gets all the property and 90% of the money, Player 2 (representing the charlatan politicians -- the oligarchy's minions) gets the railroads and the remaining 10% of the money. Player 3 (representing the upper middle class and religious charlatans -- the top 2%) gets the utilities but no money. You (representing the working class, the poor and everyone else) get nothing. See how long it takes for player 1 to win the game!

The left and right dichotomy is not a one dimensional line that demonstrates the size of government. It has to do with economics, social issues is an entirely different line. Therefore a capitalist, free market dictatorship is actually authoritarian right and a communist restricted market is authoritarian left.

If you don't realize that we are a Republic and always have been... you've never read the Constitution. Article IV, Section 4 - Republican Government The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republican form of Government.

If anyone ever says "America is a Democracy", disagree with them. It isn't. Or, more properly, it isn't SUPPOSED to be. The more it becomes a Democracy, the less it is what it was designed to be, which is a Republic. But what's the difference? A Republic limits the power of government to promote liberty of the people, through a body of law that is not subject to the whims of the majority. Attempts by the corrupt or the power-hungry to upset this system in favor of a more "majority rules" type of government in actuality is creating a transitional stage towards an oligarchy. The same is true of those who want to "do away with" government, because nature abhors a vacuum, and what will move in is invariably, once again, an oligarchy. This video explains each form and how they mutate, and why all that truly exists are oligarchies and republics as durable states, and why we want one and not the other. We have a Republic...if we can keep it.

An important message in clearing up the confusion of what political groups do and don't truly represent. WORTH IT , the video.
