Wow, I quote the Declaration

Wow, I quote the Declaration Of Independence and apply it to the local debate and I get down voted. So much for sticking to those founding principles, and no 'liberty for all' from the 'liberty movement'. Then I have a reply that vests the sovereignty in the state, and attaches rights to the state, which completely absolves a republican form of government, and they get up voted!

The 'liberty movement' is such a farce it is unreal.

Republican form of government; That form of government in which the sovereignty is vested in the people and exercised by the people directly.

Constitutional Republican form of government; That form of government in which the sovereignty is vested in the people and exercised by the people or representatives who's powers are specifically enumerated.

Democratic form of government; That form of government in which the sovereignty is vested in a whole body of free citizens and exercised by elected representatives of that body.

The exercise of sovereignty is law. The very meaning of sovereignty is the the decree of the sovereign is law.
