As we were driving to the church this morning we were listening to sports radio. All the talk was about the College Football National Championship. In this particular program the talk host was interviewing Eli Gold, “the voice of the Crimson Tide.”
Let me just say I like listening to sports radio. I like sports. I also like to listen to sports radio because it is not politics. Not usually. Its a nice mental break.
Today was not one of those days. Today, my eyes rolled and my husband chuckled at my disgust. What was said, you ask?
Eli Gold, in an explanation of something I can’t remember said, “after all, we live in a democracy.”
Mr. Gold is not a “Millennial.” He was born in the 1950s. This is just a reminder of how deep the error goes and how long we have been teaching lies.
Most Americans do not understand the importance of the difference between a Democracy and a Republic.
A Republic, where the people, through equal representation control their government. Laws are made by equal representation. People control government. Rights are inherent possessions of men and government is established to protect those inherent Rights. A Republic is the only way to ensure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.
A Democracy, as modern application demands, is mob rule. Where those in the majority make all the laws. Where those in the majority establish the rights and the privileges of those in the minority. In a Democracy, the minority groups only have what they have as long as the majority allows them to have it. A Democracy does not secure Liberty. A Democracy only ensures there will always be masters, and always be slaves. In a Democracy, Rosa Parks is still banished to the back of the bus.
We are not a Democracy. We are a Republic. But if you repeat a lie long enough, people will begin to believe that lie to be true. If Americans knew the difference, the minority groups would be the especially angry at the intentional effort to brainwash the people into believing the Democracy lie; because they will be condemned to an unrecoverable slavery.
THIS is a clear reminder of why Trump can not fix what is wrong in America. This is why we cannot relax and why we must keep pushing… LIBERTY FIRST!
