That’s right, I said “republic,” not “democracy” because we’re supposed to be a republic. But you never hear that term in the LSM (lame-stream media); no, they’re all ga-ga over the D-word. Yeah, if only everyone could vote, then the whole world will live as one.
You wanna know what democracy really is? It’s three wolves and a lamb trying to decide what to have for dinner so they take a vote. Hey, it was voted on by the majority so it must be OK to eat the loser, right? Yes, that would be right in a Democracy which is why democracy, as a concept, SUCKS.
By contrast, in a Republic, everyone is born with certain basic human rights (you know: life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, remember those?) and the role of the government is to protect those rights, regardless of what the flatulent masses want or how they vote.
Notice the subtle but fundamental paradigm shift: in a Republic, the government does not, and cannot, grant rights; it protects God-given rights that every human being is endowed with simply by virtue of having a pulse. In a Democracy, the government grants those same rights; and it can also take them away because, hey, the majority voted for it so it must be OK. So, when you hear the talking heads and political predators talking about spreading “democracy” around the globe, the alarms bells in your head should be so loud that everyone around you hears it, too.
My friends, we are witnessing the death-throes of our Republic. This election is the dying gasp of our republic-turned-empire. If Ron Paul doesn’t win this election, it’s game over for freedom in Ameedica and we’ll have to change the last line of our national anthem to “the land of the freeloaders and the home of the depraved.” If Ron Paul wins, we at least have a fighting chance to restore some sanity to our broken and corrupt political process.
Watch this video and then vote for Ron Paul.
