Are We A Republic or Democracy?
When you hear some politicians refer to the USA as a “democracy,” do you ask yourself, are we a Republic or Democracy?
Do you ever wonder why that’s even an issue? We should have learned this in school right? We’re American and presumably in the land of the free, meaning we are a sovereign nation. (Video Below)
It used to be a no-brainer.
As Americans, we should love the notion that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights protect our freedoms and are the objective nonpolitical basis for the Rule of Law by which we are to govern ourselves.
Imagine a people without a Constitution and without a Rule of Law?
And the agenda driven media seems to be the megaphone by which the narrative is propelled.
The media bombard us with words such as “collusion,” “obstruction of justice,” “vanity project,” “illegal immigrants are the best Americans,” “we’re all immigrants,” this or that is “immoral,” – noise from the liberal democrats.
Clearly, these noises are designed to manipulate, coerce and shame you to get your thinking in lockstep with their political agenda and not necessarily with our Constitution. (Video Below)
They’re using language to brainwash or confuse you while denying your basic 1st amendment freedoms; your freedom of speech, your freedom to agree to disagree without being condemned, hated or physically attacked.

Since our nation’s Declaration of Independence, we’ve relied on our U.S. Constitution to secure our freedoms and protections.
When stripped of the media spin, the political correctness, the censorship, the maligning, all that noise is really an attempt to override our Constitution and deny us of our First and Second amendment rights that are just as relevant today as they were since inception.
For instance, each time terrorism strikes our streets, invariably there are calls for more legislation to ban handguns, weapons and what they call “assault rifles.” We need to recognize it for what it is…politicians whining for stricter gun control to discard us of our inalienable rights, afforded by our Constitution.
Have you wondered why there hasn’t been a call to ban “kitchen knives,” “machetes,” “hammers,” “axes,” “spoons” and forks?
What’s at stake is the Second Amendment; an all out assault on our Second Amendment.
Today they want to pick off the 1st amendment. Tomorrow they want to pick off the 2nd amendment.
Eventually there will be nothing left to pick off!
Certainly appears that way doesn’t it?
Without the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or the Rule of Law then what we have is a democracy?
Let’s see, Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary definition of “democracy,”: “a government by the people especially: rule of the majority.”
That’s it, a democracy has no “Constitution,” it’s conspicuously missing…
Therefore, the “rule of law” to them is whatever the democrat politicians say it is that will suit their purpose for the day.
In a Republic the Constitution preserves your inalienable rights and protects both the majority and minority.
The Rule of Law puts us on notice on what actions have what consequences, expectations and how we shall conduct ourselves in our little part of God’s earth.
Simply put, where the “citizens,” of a nation have a system of government under the “Constitution” and from which they derive their “Rule of Law,” that is a Republic. (Video Below)
On the other hand, under the current democracy of the democrats, one of the aspect of their rule of law is whether the politicians are diverse enough to represent the “diverse” population.
Indeed, there is Elizabeth Warren identifying herself as “American Indian,” Robert O’Rourke calls himself “Beto,” a Spanish surname and nickname for “Roberto.”
Then they open the floodgates to have scores of “refugees,” and others just pouring into the U.S. (waiving their foreign flags), to create “diversity” and undermine the American population.
Under the U.S. Constitution only American citizens are entitled to vote and elect their President and representatives. So what you have then are instant scores of non-American individuals that cannot legally vote in our elections, with a myriad of non-American special interests.
But, here’s the good news, there needs to be no confusion on whether the USA is a Republic or a Democracy because Article 4, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution clearly tells us that:
“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.”
And the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag states:
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
In a nutshell:
The United States of America is a Republic!
The key distinction between a Republic and a Democracy is that in a Republic there exists a Constitution which spells the Rule of Law. This provides the necessary notice for how we shall govern ourselves and the parameters within which politicians must perform their duties.
