The Flame Thrower

The constant use of the term “democracy” to describe the United States of America isn’t an accident or a mistake. It is intentionally misleading, especially for those who don’t understand that our country is a Republic. It goes hand in hand with the goal of abolishing the electoral college. They desire more power in Washington and less in the states.

    Before Biden, I don’t recall ever seeing a staged event with POTUS. Such as Biden getting the vaxx shot or anything that had to do with the so called “fake” White House set. I also remember that during that video of the deal in which Trump offered the military to set up in D.C. but was rebuked only to have the National Guard deployed later. I wondered why the military lining the streets all showed their backs to the passing vehicles. The POTUS vehicle is a flag carrying car and should be saluted by uniformed military personnel. Why were backs turned to the passing cars? Something odd or amiss in protocol here. Time maybe to do some research on this.

    Really really happy to see you point this out, Stella. It always bugs me to hear someone describe our country as a democracy, and I correct them every time. As Ben Frankin said, it’s “…a Republic, if you can keep it.”

      Thanks for the acknowledgement, but their incessant use of the word “democracy” is a bit obvious, don’t you think?

        Absolutely – that’s why the Pledge of Allegiance is under attack; however, I hear a lot of fellow conservatives – young and old – using the incorrect term so have to set them straight. I remember years ago commenting to my indoctrinated sister and her husband: “You pledge allegiance to the ‘repulic’ not the ‘democracy!’ They were democrats, of course, and probably still are. Politics has split families just like the Civil War did. So sad!!

    A goodly percentage of the world’s nations have “Republic” in their names, yet many have repressive governments. It just basically means a country doesn’t have an absolute ruler. But with communist or socialist countries it’s just a word play and meaningless. Communist or socialist countries also have “Democratic” in their names and they are anything but democratic.

    “Republic: a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.

    “Democracy: a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.

    “Constitutional Republic: 1) An example of a constitutional republic is the United States’ form of government. U.S. citizens elect a President, and other representatives, who then govern them as the Constitution directs them to.

    “2) With modern republicanism, it has become the opposing form of government to a monarchy and therefore a modern republic has no monarch as head of state. As of 2017, 159 of the world’s 206 sovereign states use the word “republic” as part of their official names.”

    In a nutshell, what makes the U.S. different is the Electoral College…”Electoral College: (in the US) a body of people representing the states of the US, who formally cast votes for the election of the president and vice president.” (See: Browse the Constitution Annotated, Article II Executive Branch https://constitution.congress.gov/browse/article-2/section-1/)…and the division of rights between our federal government and the individual states which have rights unto themselves for anything not specifically given to the federal in the Constitution as originally written. (See: Tenth Amendment – “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”)

    I urge everyone to take the Hillsdale College class on The Constitution 101. And if you’ve already done so, a refresher course is also good every so often in order to explain to those who haven’t read the U.S. Constitution what our country is all about. Frankly, for me it’s quite easy nowadays to forget specifics and refreshing my memory is a total necessity.
