America is NOT a Democracy

A Democracy: Three wolves and a sheep voting on dinner.

A Republic: The flock gets to vote for which wolves vote on dinner.

A Constitutional Republic: Voting on dinner is expressly forbidden, and the sheep are armed.

"The democracy of western countries is the predecessor of Marxism, which would be unthinkable without democracy. Democracy provides the nourishing soil for this world disease; the plague spreads from this ground."--Adolf Hitler

"Anti-Semitism is a useful revolutionary expedient. My Jews are a valuable hostage given to me by democracy." ---Adolf Hitler


Here are four (4) sections taken from a 156 page book officially complied and issued by the U.S. War Department, November 30, 1928, setting forth exact and truthful definitions of a Democracy and of a Republic, explaining the difference between both. These definitions were published by the authority of the United States government and must be accepted as authentic in any court of proper jurisdiction.

The precise and scholarly definitions of a Democracy and Republic were carefully considered as a proper guide for U.S. soldiers and U.S. citizens by the Chief of Staff of the United States Army. Such definitions take precedence over any "definition" that may be found in the present commercial dictionaries which have gone through periodic "modifications" to please the politically correct and powers that be.

Shortly after the "bank holiday" back in the thirties, a time when a sitting President of the United States, FDR, literally set himself up as a King and deceived the American people in the most reprehensible fashion, this 1928 publication by the War Department suddenly was withdrawn from all public sources. It was years later before copies were again made available to The People.

A government of the masses.

Authority derived through mass meeting or any other form of "direct" expression.

Results in mobocracy.

Attitude toward property is communistic-negating property rights.

Attitude toward law is that the will of the majority shall regulate, whether it be based upon deliberation or governed by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences.

Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.


Authority is derived through the election by the people of public officials best fitted to represent them.

Attitude toward property is respect for laws and individual rights, and a sensible economic


Attitude toward law is the administration of justice in accordance with fixed principles and established evidence, with a strict regard to consequences.

A greater number of citizens and extent of territory may br brought within its compass.

Avoids the dangerous extreme of either tyranny or mobocracy.

Results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice, contentment and progress.

Is the "standard form" of government throughout the world.

A Republic is a form of government under a constitution which provides for the election of (1) an executive and (2) a legislative body, who working together in a representative capacity, have all the power of appointment, all power of legislation, all power to raise revenue and appropriate expenditures, and are required to create (3) a judiciary to pass upon the justice and legality of their governmental acts and to recognize (4) certain inherent individual rights. Take away any one or more of those four elements and you are drifting into autocracy. Add one or more to those four elements and you are drifting into democracy. Superior to all others. :

Autocracy declares the divine right of kings; its authority can not be questioned; its powers are arbitrarily or unjustly administered.

Democracy is the "direct" rule of the people and has been repeatedly tried without success.

1. Which one most closely resembles what our constitution says? A republic.

2. Which one most closely mirrors the Communist Manifesto? A democracy.

Our Constitutional fathers in their divine wisdom, knew the strength and weakness of both autocracy and democracy and with fixed principles definitely in mind, they defined a representative republican form of government. These leaders who were so far ahead of their time made a very clear and concise distinction between a republic and a democracy and they are recorded throughout the history of their time stating over and over and over so no one would get it wrong, that they had founded a republic.

WHY DEMOCRACIES FAIL: By Professor Alexander Fraser Tytler, nearly two centuries ago while our thirteen original states were still colonies of Great Britain. At the time he was writing of the decline and fall of the Athenian Republic over two thousand years before:

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largess [the public funds] from the Treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the political candidate who promises the most freebies and benefits from the public treasury. The absolute and irrefutable result is that Democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, the mob sentiment and this is always followed by a Dictatorship.
