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?

End of the Summer Sale
Since the previous administration everything became political or “you’re a racist.”

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. (Suggested reading: https://usamericanflag.com/about-freedom-of-speech-issues-in-america-and-social-media-have-you-been-shadowbanned-yet)

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?

What?

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.

  1. Hi Christie!
    Very interesting post and you really made sure to state your opinion clearly and defended it strongly. However, one question I wanted to ask you, is it impossible to be both a republic and a democracy. I am not from the USA, so maybe I have a different understanding about these two words, my country is considered a democracy and a republic and it’s no a topic of discussion. Moreover, we also have a Constitution being a democratic country. However, from what I know, in the USA, is also related to the political parties, so maybe there is the main problem actually? Even though there is no clear and unique definition, the “main” definition is a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives. Does not the USA citizens select their own representatives? I guess democracy may have a different meaning in the USA?

    Another thing I don’t understand is that you don’t like to open your country’s doors to refugees? And what’s the problem with the diversity? Shouldn’t the country’s representative REPRESENT their citizens? Shouldn’t minorities have a voice that represent them? 

    If you can suggest me some other articles to read so I can understand this situation much better, please do so. I also wanted to state that this is my opinion and the same way I don’t agree with some of the things you said, you don’t have to agree with me either, we can discuss about this nicely and this is a situation I am very far apart from, so this is my view from the outside. 

    Best, 

    Mariana

    • (1) Regarding your statement, “…is it impossible to be both a republic and a democracy.”

      I think the way you phrased your sentence is interesting. Why would you want to know if something is “impossible”? How do you prove a “nothing”? Because of the way your question is phrased therefore, your question can’t be answered with just a “yes” or “no.”

      Suffice it to say, a democracy is simply a government where the majority rules. So, if the majority feel like taking your guns away, they can and they will.  

      The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic the minority is protected not by their “representatives,” but by the Constitution.

      The Constitution is where we get the Rule of Law which protects everybody, not just the “special interests.”

      Consequently, in our Constitutional Republic, we have the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment for instance, which grants us the “right” to keep and bear arms. This means that no one can just say, ok I don’t want you to have a gun, I’m going to take it away from you.

      (2) While you state you are not from the USA and that your country is both a “democracy,” a “republic,” and has a Constitution, you did not state what country you are from; therefore, I cannot and will not even attempt to guess what country you may be referring to and what kind of “Constitution,” it may have…

      I will say that the U.S. Constitution uniquely protects our inalienable rights. Other countries may have a constitution, but the rights of the people are not enumerated in it, our Constitutional Republic does.

      (3) You ask, “Does not the USA citizens select their own representatives?”
      As this is a rhetorical question, I don’t think it adds anything to the discussion.

      Yet, as I stated earlier, because the United States of America is a Constitutional Republic, our inalienable rights are protected NOT by “representatives,” but by the U.S. Constitution.

      (4) You state: “Another thing I don’t understand is that you don’t like to open your country’s doors to refugees?”

      The fact of the matter is Marianna that the U.S.A. is the preferred country of destination to more “refugees,” than any other country in this whole wide world.

      Indeed, throughout the years the United States has taken in millions of “refugees.”

      In fact, some parts of the USA, the number of refugees so outnumber Americans that it is like a foreign nation rather than the USA.

      Your assertion is therefore incorrect.

      (5) You ask: “And what’s the problem with the diversity?”

      Ahh, that’s another question that I’m not exactly sure how it relates to my article…nor do you provide any factual evidence to what it is that you are talking about…

      However, I will tell you that “diversity,” is a code word or a buzz word of the “progressive left” which signifies adherence to the liberal agenda of open borders for political reasons.

      Every country has the right to protect its borders for their citizens.

      Just like you don’t have to open the doors to your home to just anyone, likewise the U.S.A. should not have to open their borders to every one.

      Every country has their own immigration laws that should be enforced, protected and respected, particularly in the U.S. because we as a Constitutional Republic are a country of laws, deriving our Rule of Laws under the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, Statutes and Common Law.

      (6) Finally, you say, “I also wanted to state that this is my opinion and the same way I don’t agree with some of the things you said, you don’t have to agree with me either, we can discuss about this nicely…”

      Marianna, I invite you to ReRead my post again.

      And if you do, you will notice that in it I wrote,

      “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.”

      You know while I believe my entire post is excellent, this is indeed one of my favorite sentences that I wrote, and I think we are both saying the same thing aren’t we, just saying it differently!?     🙂

      Anyway, thanks for commenting. Your questions were very interesting and I truly enjoyed answering them. Cheers!

  2. Hi Christie, 

    Great post. The media has gotten out of control. The only thing they care about is getting a story out now a days. They don’t care how factually correct it is. I’m always shocked how many people don’t know we’re a constitutional republic. I thought that was common knowledge. FYI. Great video. I love this version of God Bless the USA. 

    Brian

    • Well thank you Brian, much appreciated. 

      Yup, lately it seems that what used to be common knowledge has become or is becoming a rarity nowadays and that I think is the fastest way to lose those freedoms that we often take for granted in our great Republic.

      Thanks for commenting, so glad you enjoyed my post!  

  3. This website is awesome! It sheds light on topics no one likes to talk about.. but we all need to hear. Its not about picking sides it is about coming together as one nation and fixing things that need fixed. I like how this is offers both sides and not one. You are doing a great job here keep up the good work!

  4. Thank you so much for this fantastic post!

    I am a LEGAL immigrant and a proud American. I love this beautiful country called the USA with everything I’ve got, and I have never asked about anything! 

    But it is changing so rapidly in front of my own eyes and it is SO PAINFUL to watch! 

    If I disagree with ANYTHING – I am a racist! If I have my own opinion and can INTELLIGENTLY and with CRITICAL REASONING back it up – I am a racist. Well, it is right now to the level of schizophrenia! That is why I canceled my cable. I think anyone of them requires professional medical help. Well, nobody cares what I think.

    Again, very happy to see and read your post! Keep it up!

    Sincerely and with big appreciation of our military and all our service men and women!

    Regards

    • Thank you so much for your comment Ella! 

      I absolutely agree with you 100%; this is precisely the reason that I have created this website and wrote this post.

      To serve as a reminder and to bring awareness that the U.S. Constitution still stands to protect our inalienable rights. 

      Yet, to ensure our freedoms, we must exercise those freedoms.  In particular, our Freedom of Speech or we may very well lose them, being as those freedoms are daily under attack!
