Republic vs. Democracy

“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”
President John Adams ~ October 2, 1780

  1. We have a constitutional republic, and that Constitution is the supreme law thereof. It is the fault of the People, as it was in Rome, for the gradual demise through apathy and greed (desire for a free ride). As more and more people, either working for, or living off the government, became convinced that they could vote more benefits (retirement pensions, health care, subsidies, loan guarantees, etc. etc.) for themselves through the unlawful (unconstitutional) power of government to redistribute wealth via the improperly used “power” of taxation, the true republic faltered and fell. We are well on the way to completing the scenario of “when in Rome, do as the Romans do” !

    • The only difference between the Romans and us is the clothing and they rode on chariots, we travel in cars.
