"Our founding fathers detested the idea of a democracy and labored long to prevent America becoming one.  Once again -- the word 'democracy' does not appear in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States, or the constitution of any of the fifty states.  Not once. Furthermore, take a look at State of the Union speeches.  You won’t find the 'D' word uttered once until the Wilson years."

Yes, this is a constitutional republic - quite different from a democracy. Look it up!

    It's hard to argue with facts .

    The concerted effort to move away from republican principles to a traditional centralized power structure has turned a sovereign citizen into a serf. Only in America can a living breathing person lay claim to land as his own, free and clear of any liens or encumbrances forever. Only this has been long forgotten. As well, American money was by law silver and gold. An income tax was found to be unconstitutional and revoked.

    However, today, Americans are taxed annually on their land, their labors, and their property, and their money confiscated and replaced with a currency that is rented. We own nothing now -- but are liable for all. Democracy justifies this hegemony in the name of majority rule -- but of course, the lemmings only know what they are told and are easily influenced. Just look at the last presidential elections -- we may believe we have a choice, but we are given the choices, so we merely end up voting for either one of the same fraternity.

    Bull's-eye Mr. Archer!
    Our people have been so dumbed down through the progressive era starting with Wilson the term progressive got such a bad name they had to change it to liberalism to again pull the wool over the eyes of the people and when that is discovered they change the name again but the philosophy behind it is always the same a departure from natural law principles our country was founded on.

    Democracy is just another word for democrat.
