Democracy versus Republic

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

In the Pledge of Allegiance we all pledge allegiance to our Republic, not to a democracy. REPUBLIC is the proper description of our government, not “democracy.” I invite you to join me in raising public awareness regarding that distinction.

REPUBLIC and a democracy are identical in every aspect except one. In a REPUBLIC the sovereignty is in each individual person. In a democracy the sovereignty is in the group.

REPUBLIC. That form of government in which the powers of sovereignty are vested in the people and are exercised by the people, either directly, or through representatives chosen by the people, to whom those powers are specially delegated. [NOTE: The word "people" may be either plural or singular. In a republic the group only has advisory powers; the sovereign individual is free to reject the majority group way of thinking. USA/exception: if 100% of a jury convicts, then the individual loses sovereignty and is subject to the group way of thinking, as in a democracy.]

Democracy. That form of government in which the sovereign power resides in and is exercised by the whole body of free citizens directly or indirectly through a system of representation, as distinguished from a monarchy, aristocracy, or oligarchy. [NOTE: In a pure democracy, 51% beats 49%. In other words, the minority has NO rights. The minority only has those privileges granted by the dictatorship of the majority.]

Imagine what happens if a small minority (Corporate America) has control of the majority. We have seen how this has allowed America to go to war, even though the majority of the people did not want to do this. We have seen instead of people maintaining their sovereignty, they become power less and have to do what is decided by a section of the group. We have seen how it is OK for the state of California to become the first state to vote to take rights away from other members of the group as they did with proposition 86 which removed the rights of gays to legally get married. This happened after the Mormons in Utah (minority), started a campaign and backed it with their money, to have the law of California removed. This is what happens in a Democracy. In a Republic, you can say in the constitution “no one can ever make any laws that control what 2 adults do in private”. Period. In a democracy, the rights of what adults do in private can be controlled, dictated, made mandatory, and you can be imprisoned otherwise.

And not just 2 adults, try one adult. In this democracy the majority of adults are told what food they can ingest into their bodies. It is controlled by the state what plant you can smoke and what plant you can not. What form of intoxication is legal and which are forbidden.

What is in the best interest of all the people and what we need is a Republic.

Please research this important topic and make a sovereign conscious choice. The old system is busted beyond repair, and even Einstien said:

You can’t solve a problem from within the problem, one must go outside the problem in order to find a better solution.
