Obama: No Place for Limbaugh’s Remarks

@ 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:

Democracya : 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:  (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 (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.

  1. John Adams: Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.

    Thomas Jefferson: A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%.

    James Madison: Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death.

    John Quincy Adams: The experience of all former ages had shown that of all human governments, democracy was the most unstable, fluctuating and short-lived.

    Thomas Jefferson: The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.

    James Madison: Democracy was the right of the people to choose their own tyrant.

    John Adams: That the desires of the majority of the people are often for injustice and inhumanity against the minority, is demonstrated by every page of the history of the world.

    John Marshall: Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos.

    Oscar Wilde: Democracy means simply the bludgeoning of the people by the people for the people.

    Winston Churchill: The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.

    Karl Marx: Democracy is the road to socialism.

  2. Screw him and screw the liberal media!! As much as he may envision himself, he is NOT a Marxist dictator!! Appropriate or not, Rush’s comments fall under his right to free speech. Where was the “public outcry” when that POS, Bill Maher, called Sarah Palin a…………..[well, what he called her].

  3. Politicians on all sides of the political spectrum are guilty of saying “democracy”. I’m not sure where this started (that would be interesting research). I think that it solicites a better response from the audience or something. I’ll bet that most Americans would say this is a “democracy” not a “republic” – most people probably don’t even know the difference. It is annoying though.

  4. Uhh…He doesn’t…umm…do so…uhh…well…uhh…with…umm…without his…uhh…tele…uhh…teleprompter.

    It’s obvious to many that he is simply so brilliant that his mind is racing far ahead of his speech, principally because he has to slow down so that we, “the [stupid] American people”, can understand what he is trying to say to us. Well, that’s true — for the many who still think he’s smart.
