Ron Edwards — Why and What is a Republic

Ever since the 1930s, the United States of America has been mistakenly designated a democracy. Democracy means mob rule or mobocracy that places the rights of the group or mob above the unalienable rights of the individual. The opposite of mob rule is a Constitutionally Limited Republic. That is what the founding Fathers designated the United states to be. In a republic, the sovereignty resides with “We the People.” In a republic the people have no obligation to the government. Instead, the government is designated as a servant of the people and obliged to it’s owner, “We the People.” Many elitists, progressive politicians have completely sought to reverse the roles and have been trying to make us into servants of a bloated nanny state government that rules over us from cradle to grave. (From giving social security numbers to newborns, to deciding end of life medical procedures for the elderly.)

A major goal of the framers of our Constitutionally limited republic was to avoid the dangerous extremes of mobocracy or tyranny. But what exists in today’s America is in fact a mobocracy. Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution plainly states, “The United States shall guarantee to every state in this Union a Republic form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion. But not only is our constitution being ignored, but the exact opposite has been encouraged by both president Obama and Senator John McCain. It was president Obama who with backing from the United Nations who threatened the state of Arizona with legal action, if they exercised the sovereign right of self protection from the invading hordes of illegal immigrants pouring in of that states southern border. Senator John McCain has officially joined the ranks of those who do not honor the Constitution or our national sovereignty.
