Any nation that is a democracy is not a free nation. Democracy is rule by the majority. The rule of the majority has no limitations. If the majority declares that people do not have the right to publicly state that they believe an election was stolen, in a democracy, this right can be prohibited. In a Republic, it is the law that determines what constitutes free speech. In our Constitutional Republic the Constitution overrules the majority. Our Constitution states that congress can make no law abridging the right to speak freely. Because the Constitution also states that only the legislative branch has the power to make laws, that means no laws can be made to limit the right to free speech.
In a democracy the majority rules. The question all should ask is the majority of what body. It is the majority of the voting body that can eliminate the rights of others, so that the majority can eliminate certain minority groups from participating in government. Thus, a democracy becomes rule by the majority of a smaller and smaller body. The majority of this smaller body now has the power to dictate what the vast number of people can or cannot say. As the United States is transformed to a democracy, the rights of the people, including our free speech, becomes more and more limited.
This is why those who seek communist rule in the United States, that is the Left or the Democrat Party, have for the last 100 plus years diminished our Republic and our Constitution, and transformed us to a democracy. They did this with the help of their “useful idiots” the RINOs.
“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.” Benjamin Franklin
It is the intent of the American Left to overthrow the liberty of our nation. They have begun by subduing our freeness of speech.
Know the differences between republic and democracy. It is the same a those between freedom and tyranny. Freedom is when the individual determines how they will live their lives, choices they will make, and thoughts they will have and how they will express those thoughts. Tyranny is when the government decides how people will live their lives, choices they will make, and thoughts they can have and how they will express those thoughts.
