If You Believe We Live In a Republic, then Why are you Registering to Vote in a Democracy?Submitted by vinceableworld on Wed, 11/07/2012 - 05:27
This conversation REALLY needs to be had here at the Daily Paul where the majority believes we live in a Republic - NOT a Democracy.
A democracy is majority rule where 51% of the people get to decide what everyone's rights are. In a republic your rights are protected by the constitution and nobody can take them away.
By REGISTERING to vote in a democracy where you are subject to the 51%, you are slaves to any one particular issue. In a republic you do not register, you just vote. Your democratic registration is your consent to abide by millions of statutory rules which are public servant codes. Your registration also grants a power of attorney to your representative who then votes on what your rights are.
In a republic, government can only make rules for public servants. Government cannot make any rules for the people without their individual private contracted consent. All amendments to the constitution must past this test where they are ONLY rules for public servants.
Hopefully that is a simple enough description to begin with. I await your questions and I hope this will be a very educational thread. I would like to start a dialog about how we restore the republic. Hint: You do not do it be participating in "democracy."
