Re: Do You Know the Difference Between a Democracy and a Republic?

Jim, That was very interesting and informative.

I can now understand a little more of (for example) the right to carry arms etc, fundamental differences in the systems.

The only slight inaccuracy I noticed was "In a democracy where somebody is taken to court, say over a house there would be a majority vote from a jury but this would still be according to the interpretation of the law, not just because most just decided" in other words the majority have to, following advice, to decide whether a particular law has been broken.

Differently to Amanda however I watched the last video and was blown away.

Who are the guitarists.

Roger

Hey Roger,

For either to work you need to know the rules.

  Unfortunately lately the rules are written on the fly depending which party or mob is in charge.  That is how we got so far from the original intent of the documents known as the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Right now in the US and many parts of the world we have democracies that are actually oligarchies because the tenures of the politicians spans lifetimes.  Like the tyrants and monarchs of our pasts, we all can do without.

Unfortunately our history is so long, untaught and revised, that  much of the reasoning and wisdom, behind the documents has been forgotten and we are being forced to relive those travesties of the past.

Thanks for viewing and commenting on the videos.

Jim

The guitar players in the video are actor Ralph Maccio of Karate Kid fame and  the actual music and it's playing was by Steve Vais 

May Wisdom and the knowledge you gained go with you,

Lincoln’s War

Posted on 04 May 2009

by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

The following is an excerpt from the new book, Dred Scott’s Revenge: A Legal History of Race and Freedom in America, by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano. The excerpt is drawn from Chapter Five, entitled “The Civil War,” published here with permission from the publisher, Thomas-Nelson:


Dred Scott's Revenge

One of the greatest misconceptions of American history is that the Civil War was fought over slavery. Those who subscribe to this belief see President Abraham Lincoln as the benevolent leader who made unimaginable sacrifices in human blood to wipe out America’s greatest sin. While the human sacrifice is indisputable and the sin was monumental, the war’s purpose was not to free blacks from the shackles of bondage. Rather, the Civil War was fought with one purpose in mind: To preserve the Union at all costs. And, to put it in Lincoln’s terms, with no ifs, ands, or buts. You’d better agree with the president, or else.

Ladies and gentlemen, as we approach the time for remembering our gallant ancestors that so bravely wore the grey for the Tarheel State, let us remember that close to 90% of our Southern men did not own slaves and were fighting for their homes and property and to be free from a tyrannical government. It sickens me to no end that our schools in the South as well as other areas of America are forced to teach the lies imposed upon them by our government that Lincoln was a hero! This type of vomit and fester is what has caused us to be a nation of weak and morally bankrupt lemmings that are being led to the edge of the cliff by those powers that be. If we had the intestinal fortitude and character of our ancestors and the politicians of today tried to imposed their laws upon us, the pots of tar would be set ablaze and the feathers would be bagged and at the ready at the steps of the capital!
Let us get back to the values and morals of our ancestors that had to strive and carve out a life in the wilderness and stop being a nation of weak and mindless idlers that are more interested in who gets voted off of American Idol than what is going on in our government!
May 10 is Confederate Memorial Day in NC. Remember your ancestors that hailed from the Tarheel State.
