We hear time after time that we must save our democracy. It is because we have transformed to a democracy that our nation is in the position it is. Today our government has assumed unlimited power. The legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch ignore Artielc I Section 8 and the 10th amendment. It is assumed by all that the federal government can have whatever power the majority or those in power declare it can have.
Today our government ignores that the Constitution specifically states that the legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch have no power to infringe or to abridge the liberties given to each individual by God. The prohibitions that protect our liberties are ignored along with the 9th amendment.
The rallying cry, predominantly from the left right now but also from some uninformed members of the right, is save our democracy. Democracy is dictatorship our founders told us. Dictatorship is one party rule. Communists place their party as the only party when they gain control, control they have gained because of democracy.
If Republicans vote, they are killing democracy. If they don’t vote, they are killing democracy. The only way to “save democracy,” writes The Washington Post’s Max Boot, is to empower one-party rule — a position that probably sounds counterintuitive to anyone with a middle-school education.
Democracy does not, cannot last long is what our founders told us. It does not, cannot last long because of what is happening today, that is the insistence for total conformity or one-party rule. That is dictatorship.
In our republic, the powers of government were limited by the Constitution. The very definition of republic is that the Supreme ruler of the land is the law. Our Supreme ruler is the Constitution, and the Constitution greatly limits the power of the government. In a democracy, the Supreme ruler of the land is the majority or those in power and they have no limitations or restrictions on their power.
Democracy begins as a dictatorship, that is a dictatorship of the majority over the minority that quickly becomes a dictatorship of the few over the many. This is the very reason the Democrats now use the rally cry “Save our Democracy.” They want one party rule, they want dictatorship.
