Article IV Section 4 of the United States Constitution

“The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government…”

While we certainly haven’t been governed as a Constitutional Republic (we’re pretty much an oligarchy kept in power via democracy), never the less, ‘legally’ we are still one.  We The People are not subjects to the Crown, we are the masters of our government. With individual liberties come individual responsibilities and that means knowing how our government is supposed to run and demanding our public servants run it in the proper way. They work for us.

There are only three reasons an American would tout democracy: they’re ignorant of our Constitution, they’re ignorant that Republics and Democracies are not synonymous, or they’re an enemy to our Constitution (i.e. our Republic).

Most importantly, public servants (and pundits to include MSM talk show hosts that include FOX) are counting on the ignorance of We The People to advance their democracy agenda.

They went from a Republic, to a democracy, and ended up with an oligarchy under a progression of the Caesars. –JBS–

Update: Then this: “We are gathered here today for a truly momentous occasion in our Democracy,” says Pres Trump at start of Gorsuch-swearing-in.
