The Untied States was formed as a Constitutional Republic. Our founders specifically chose republic and unanimously rejected democracy. In our republic, the people are supposed to be the Sovereign. That is why the Constitution starts with “We the People.” We vote for people who reflect our convictions to represent us in Congress. Those representatives, because we are a republic, do have limitations on what they can do. The powers they have are limited per Article I and Section 8 of the Constitution. They are also prohibited from limiting our liberties that the Declaration of Independence declared come from God and not government.
The most basic issue facing “We the People” is will we consent to be transformed from a republic to a democracy. A quick summary of the differences would be that in a republic the powers of the government are limited, and the liberties of the people cannot be abridged or infringed. In a democracy the power of government is whatever the majority of the controlling body declares it to be, and the liberties of the people can be abridged, infringed, and even abolished if that majority so declares. The left has been transforming us to a democracy since at least the days of Wilson. The conservatives have opposed the transformation. You decide.
Other issues of great import today would include illegal immigration. The left believes we should obey the dictate of Marx that borders should be open and not restrict movement of people while the conservatives believe that borders should exist, and immigration should be controlled and regulated. You decide.
The left is promoting inflation through their belief that massive spending and rising debt is good. The conservatives claim that massive deficit spending is detrimental to the sustainability of a sound and growing economy. The conservatives believe that inflation is a tax that falls mostly on middle class and poor. You decide.
The left is telling us that placing responsibility for a crime on the criminal is racist. The left tells us that criminals should not have to post bail, should be given lenient if any sentence, and if sentenced to jail they should be released early. The left tells us this is humane, after all the criminal is not responsible for their actions but society and the victim are. The right believes that individuals are responsible for their actions, for their choices and should be held responsible for the consequences, be they positive or negative. If an individual chooses to commit a crime, the law must be applied equally to all ignoring race, sex, color, or political affiliation. You decide.
The left believes that the family unit is detrimental to their agenda. They believe that the influence of parents on children must be replaced with the state having total influence on the child. Any who would disagree should be treated as enemies of the state, as enemies to society and ostracized and demonized accordingly. Therefore, the left tells us that all must support and promote the killing of the unborn child commonly referred to as choice, must support sexually grooming children, must support, and promote pedophilia, must support, and promote all perversions especially sexual perversions, must denounce any beliefs in Christ and the Bible, and must support and promote all schools as indoctrination centers for the leftist ideology. The conservative belief is that the family unit is the core unit of a strong and stable society. The role of the parent is never to be replaced by the state. The conservative understands that a sound and stable childhood is critical to the child becoming a positive contributing citizen. The conservative understands that all conforming to one ideal is destructive but reasonable people with different beliefs builds a strong society. You decide.
