Leftists Offer America ‘Suicide On The Installment Plan’

Is that so-called 'threat to democracy' quite what we were TOLD it is?

The Threat to Democracy

The chant went out all over the land, repeated endlessly throughout the Monster Stream Media: “It’s a threat to our democracy!” This meaningless phrase took on a life of its own. What is it designed to mean? Answer: America First is a threat, MAGA is a threat, Trump is the threat to our democracy!” Clever Democrats strike again!

In typical Leftist fashion, the tactics involve sowing confusion by deception, redefinition of words, warping traditional understandings of principles and deliberate provocations to feed strife, all of it contained in the strategy to conquer.

The average person hears about threats to democracy thinking the American system is a democracy so any perceived threat is a danger to America. Democrats successfully redefined democracy making it the center of the Constitution, a mirage! They convince average people to believe the false narrative, that anyone who opposes democracy is anti-American. It’s all based on a lie by confusing terms. In fact, anyone who opposes democracy is a patriot, aligned with the Founders, the authors of the Constitution.

America is not a democracy. America is a republic. So, the actual threat comes from the Left which works to destroy the republic, and thus, the republic created by the Founds is indeed a threat to democracy! The Founders condemned the idea of a democracy. They gave us a republic. Note this remark by John Adams, Founding Father and President:

“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” Source cited: Wallbuilders

Why is this statement true? Democracy at its center is based primarily on majority rule (human wisdom) which can very easily become mob rule. Mob rule creates an endless struggle pit where contending factions engage endless war, the spoils to the most powerful, usually the elite. This creates a minority lording it over the majority. By hook or crook or both, elites can obtain and exercise power by engineering block voting, and aggravating factionalism, which is what we see today. Factionalism creates an effective diversion allowing a Uni-party to prevail, operating from the shadows.

The Founders knew full well that democracy always fails because no one ever wins, except the elite, but eventually they too become consumed by the internal strife generated by democratic factionalism. So what is the solution? Answer: constitutional republic!

Republic: representative government guided by morality, the rule of law and the separation of powers, a government limited by the Constitution to protect the citizens from internal and external threats. It is a means of achieving liberty and justice for all by the protection of God-given rights, the road to self-government by the consent of the governed. Consent depends upon good representatives and sound elections, all this dependent on pervasive morality “restraining the passions,“ yielding good citizenship.

Republic is the only means of providing for liberty and justice as defined by The People, not majorities that come and go as they trample on civil liberties, including those of minorities. Therefore the real threat to democracy is a republic, and the real threat to republic is any form of government that encourages mob rule and centralized power.

Finally, from the chaos and violence generated by democracy comes the nursery of tyranny because when factions consume all, dictatorship is the last option to restore order. Aren’t you glad America First/MAGA are focused on restoring Republic!?
