Article IV Section IV
The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.
Perhaps where they get the concept of these laws is from the exact same that guarantees a republican form of government, since it also say it shall protect them against "domestic violence." One thing is certain though, this is not a democracy.
"Liberty is the soul's right to breathe, and when it cannot take a long breath laws are girded too tight. Without liberty, man is a syncope." -Henry Ward Beecher
