Democracy vs. Republic- Most Aren't Taught the DifferenceSubmitted by RP_Matrixxx on Tue, 05/08/2012 - 09:06
Hello Daily Paulers! This is my first post on the DP and I have recently signed up for an account here. I wanted to share a story with you, as the message of Liberty is so important and spreading like wildfire.
Everywhere I go I spread the word and engage people in conversation about the good Doctor. My daughter is always with me absorbing what I say like a sponge. I couldn't be more proud of my 9 year old.
My daughter came home from school one day and she was a little confused. She said the teacher said we lived in a Democracy. She told me she raised her hand and said that she thought it was a Republic. The teacher said, "No, we live in a democracy." My daughter explained to me that she can prove that we live in a Republic.
I asked her how she did that. She said that she asked the teacher to repeat the Pledge of Allegiance and stopped her at "to the Republic". Her teacher asked her who taught her that and she said my Daddy.
I have to tell you that tears of joy were starting to happen and I was so proud of my little girl.
We now study the Constitution and I have been teaching her critical thinking. (A good site for this is http://www.triviumeducation.com/). In my opinion, because of this my daughter now has a very high IQ.
This video a good way for you to teach your children, and people you run into the difference between a Democracy and a Republic.
Thank you for reading this post. Thank you ALL for fighting to save this Republic. No one but Paul 2012!
