The overwhelming number of the few Americans who have any concept of our formation and why we were formed the way we were, have been badly misled. The many, or those who are not a part of the few, have no idea who or what we are and thus are easily misled by slogans and cliches. The overwhelming cry is that we are a democracy which implies that we are a free people who determine our own destiny. Every aspiring dictator would want the people he is trying to enslave to believe just that. Every aspiring dictator, much like the Democrats and RINO of today, want people to believe that government is their friend and that it is government who not only protects them, but ensures their freedom. What a lie. It is government that is the threat to freedom.
The Founders understood how critical it was to place power in the people of the nation rather than an aristocracy or a monarch. On the other hand, they all feared the power of King Mob and the tyranny of the majority over a minority. To that end, the Constitution is filled with a number of measures that prevent the majoritarian rule of simple democracy.
The government was never seen by the Founders as a provider of anything but a very generalized common security. We were told we must be a government of laws and not of men, or a republic. At best, the government was seen as a necessary evil to allow for the continued functioning of a peaceful society. Those who sought power through the government, rather than seeking to serve their countrymen, were implicitly distrusted.
Alexander Hamilton said, “It has been observed by an honorable gentleman, that a pure democracy, if it were practicable, would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position in politics is more false than this. The ancient democracies, in which the people themselves deliberated, never possessed one feature of good government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity.”
Because of the fear of Democracy our founders had, they formed us as a Republic, or where they would overcome the rule of the mob and place the law as the ultimate arbiter, that arbiter would be the Constitution of the United States.
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace said that not one Republican is doing a “single goddamn thing to protect democracy” while discussing Tennessee state lawmakers expelling two members from their House seats. This is proper. The lawmakers to whom she was referring were leading King Mob promoters. They were advocating that the rights of the minority should be eliminated, yes, they were playing the role of tyrant. They were doing exactly what our founders feared. That is the very reason our founding fathers rejected democracy and gave us a republic.
This is why Lenin explained that democracy is indispensable to socialism and socialism is the way to communism. Lenin told us what the founders feared. That is that democracy is dictatorship of the majority over the minority that quickly becomes dictatorship of the few over the many. This is what the Democrats and RINOS want.
