America: The Republic or a Democracy?



August 11, 2008 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: C , GS

That is the real question. To me a Republic is a Nation of Law. The law is enforced and we don't break the law. Now in a Democracy it is said that the Majority rules and so the law can be what the majority wants.Lets take Iraq and Russia. If we use the the Republic rule then when we went into Iraq we broke the law of the constitution because Iraq never invaded our country or any other country at the time. The first time they did we responded quite rightly so. The second time we didn't under the constitution. Now we have Russia and Georgia this time and from the news reports Georgia went in to Russia and killed many people and now Russia has responded. IF that is correct then Russia was right in responding. Let me state here that I think that Russia is over reacting but the law is on Russia's side. In a Democracy such as we have had ever since Our Central Bank was formed the majority rule. It can be said that as long as we are not attacked  then in a Democracy where the majority rules we can put aside the Constitution and Invade Nations without declaring War. We just say that they are a threat and we need to stop them before they strike us. We use the words like the war on terror and how like Iraq is like Iran. Who is doing the translations and why are they not translating the message correctly and scaring the world to death. Could it be Democracy at work?  For example one group of bankers (not the ones you and I use everyday)  funding these groups and country's to make money on the instability? The military industrial complex? These two groups are now a majority. What they want they will get because that is how democracy works?  A Republic recognizes the inalienable rights of individuals while democracies are only concerned with group wants or needs (the public good).                     So how to trade this? Be like sheep and let the powers that be decide what and where the market will take us. sigh.........
