Publisher’s Note: A friend of mine, Dan Ray, a true patriot who talks the talk and walks the walk wrote the following article back in 1987 to commemorate the 200th Birthday of the U.S. Constitution. While thirty years have come and gone since he wrote it, it is as relevant today as it was then and has been for the past two hundred and thirty years.
Every Patriot needs to read this article and grasp its simple essence and truth.
As an additional note: please notice which order of importance individuals are on the “Democracy” side of the chart.
Dan Ray: As true Americans pause to celebrate the 200th birthday of the U.S. Constitution, it is of utmost importance that we clarify and reflect its true purpose and function.
According to its authors, whom we call the Founding Fathers, the purpose of the Constitution was to secure the blessings of liberty for themselves and their posterity. It was, and is, to function as a contract recognizing and protecting our GOD given, unalienable, individual rights. The posterity is us and those rights are ours. This contract was to guarantee every state a republican form of government, (Article 4, Section 4).
Our public, (government) school system, along with all establishment controlled media would have us believe that we have a democracy. Is there that much difference? So glad you asked! To keep it simple, a democracy is a government of masses.
Its authority is derived through mass meetings or other forms of direct expression. Democracy results in mobocracy, where the attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall rule.
In a republic, (guaranteed to every state) authority comes from “We The People.” From US, limited power is entrusted to our public servants, chosen through free elections to operate as three separate powers: (1) Executive, (2) Legislative, and (3) Judicial, which would maintain vital checks and balances to peacefully and automatically correct abuses of power that would move towards tyranny.
I guess that means that the boss is us. A republic results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice and progress. The important question is: Where do you stand as an individual in a democracy?
Let’s find out by comparing the basic characteristics of a majority ruled democracy and of a constitutional republic. The chart below will put the drastic differences into focus.
Here is the basic structure: The truth is born out when one simply recites our Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag.
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States Of America, and the REPUBLIC for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.”
Don’t be dismayed if you haven’t heard this before. The elite forces in the federal bureaucracy have, through their power of control, made sure that “We the People” were lied to again and again. The democracy lie is just one of many. A few others are: the Federal Reserve, the Panama Canal giveaway, the so-called energy shortage of the seventies, Pearl Harbor, Korea, Vietnam, Social Security, fluoridation of water, the IRS and the 16th Amendment, Watergate and on and on.
Fellow Americans! Wake up! The constitution was written by Americans to protect American from GOVERNMENT!
Government is supposed to be a servant to the people. It was not created to control us or dictate our lifestyles. It is to protect our freedom to exercise our GOD given, unalienable rights, along with the common defense of this nation.
“We the People” must demand that our public servants, who are supposed to represent us, strictly uphold their solemn oath of office or be fired. This includes Article 4, Section 4 which guarantees us a Republican form of government.
As the Constitution begins the journey through its third century, we must always remember that the Constitution is like a will, written to Govern the estate of our Founding Fathers. It is still the Supreme Law Of The Land that all laws must be consistent with. Be proud of the heritage it protects. Study, learn and share the eternal principles it provides. Keep alert to the fact that we are, and must remain a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.
And that means – THE BOSS IS US!!
