Back to the basics here, because I do not believe that many Americans know that the word "democracy," being thrown around as a the panacea of the world's ills, is what they think it is. I also don't think many Americans realize the danger we are facing from a middle east run by a supposed "democratic" majority of radical Islamacists. Our mainstream media and our president are rejoicing in the creation of a new Ottoman Empire that is the antithesis of freedom and will be the enemy of Western Civilization. Why? Because those who ascribe to Islam hate America. Why? Because they do not believe in individual rights. Why? Because they believe in a Theocracy and in believing that, they believe America is a corrupt nation.
Democracy being billed as the cure for the world is a trojan horse. America is NOT a democracy. The difference between a "democracy" and a "republic" used to be taught in high school civics classes or government studies. But from what I am seeing in the media and in our own leadership, Americans don't know that difference and are jumping on board with a government philosophy of a tyranny of a majority that is completely dangerous to the survival of our nation.
"The chief characteristic and distinguishing feature of a Democracy is: Rule by Omnipotent Majority. In a Democracy, The Individual, and any group of Individuals composing any Minority, have no protection against the unlimited power of The Majority. It is a case of Majority-over-Man."
"A Republic, on the other hand, has a very different purpose and an entirely different form, or system, of government. Its purpose is to control The Majority strictly, as well as all others among the people, primarily to protect The Individual’s God-given, unalienable rights and therefore for the protection of the rights of The Minority, of all minorities, and the liberties of people in general. The definition of a Republic is: a constitutionally limited government of the representative type, created by a written Constitution--adopted by the people and changeable (from its original meaning) by them only by its amendment--with its powers divided between three separate Branches: Executive, Legislative and Judicial. Here the term "the people" means, of course, the electorate."
"Democracy, as a form of government, is utterly repugnant to--is the very antithesis of--the traditional American system: that of a Republic, and its underlying philosophy, as expressed in essence in the Declaration of Independence with primary emphasis upon the people’s forming their government so as to permit them to possess only "just powers" (limited powers) in order to make and keep secure the God-given, unalienable rights of each and every Individual and therefore of all groups of Individuals."
We are witnessing a global shift of power devolving into mob rule. Our founders knew to not trust a "majority" to be a just protectorate of individual rights. Why? Because they understood history and human nature. They understood that a majority can destroy peoples and civilizations. They understood that a majority can vote for tyranny. America has been a thriving nation because of its protection of individual rights. If you look across history, you will not find another nation under any other form of government that has been so successful in the prosperity of its citizens. Why? Because of the protection of individual rights.
Dictatorships eventually fall. Communism fails the people whose rights are trampled. Socialism fails the people under totalitarian rule. State Fascism failed as seen with Hitler and Mussolini. Multiculturalism has failed in Europe. A Theocracy can be as dangerous as the others. The next question is; Will America survive a world where "democracy" votes in a combination of State run Communism, Socialism, Fascism, or Theocracy, across the globe?Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
