, Siren Song of the Crazy Fuck Comments Off on Spastic hands Trump says Founding Fathers created a “democracy” not a Republic
*We Don't Need Your Stinkin' Comments*
From Trump’s new government website: “Donald Trump understands the solemn duty that comes from the Oath of Office – swearing to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” He embraces the fact that the reason the Founders of this nation decided to adopt a written Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land for the first time in world history was to create a democratic form of government in which ordinary people would know the powers of government and the rights of the people.”
Our Founding Fathers disagree with Trump:
Article IV, Section 4 – United States Constitution: “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.”
Though we’ve not been governed as a Constitutional Republic for the last 100 or so years, we are legally still a Republic. As our Republic (rule by law) dies, so goes our Constitution (individual liberties), because individual liberties do not and can not exist in a democracy (mob rule).
They went from a Republic to a democracy and ended up with an oligarchy under a progression of the Caesars.
