@ 1:21 time mark – This is a REPUBLIC not a democracy!!!! I am so sick and tired of hearing these politicians saying that.
Just read the Constitution:
Article IV. Section. 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.
Read the Pledge of Allegiance:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Not ONE mention of the word democracy ANYWHERE!!!
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary:
Democracy: a : government by the people; especially : rule of the majority b : a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections
Republic: a (1) : a government having a chief of state who is not a monarch and who in modern times is usually a president (2) :a political unit (as a nation) having such a form of government b (1) : a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law
Democracy is saying that our voices are heard only “periodically” during elections. Whereas, a Republic states that the representatives or elected officials are responsible for reporting to US throughout their term in office. Also notice how republic also states that they are responsible for “governing according to law”. There is a HUGE difference between the two! No wonder Obama and the other lefties choose to use the word “democracy”.
But about Sandra Fluke… I refuse to give any further attention to this trivial matter. The only issue that is of any importance in regards to her is the fact that she is attempting to tread on OUR religious freedom.
