|| DEMOCRATS VERSUS
|| While the question:
"why are there democrats and republicans?" finds its answers in the American
history, it can also be viewed at the present. For example, the statement
of Hillary, that she would support changing of the electoral college provisions
in the Constitution, the claim by Algore of having received the popular
majority, Lieberman's denial that the elected legislature of Florida would
have the right to chose the electors for Florida for the presidency and
that that would be a Constitutional crisis, are some of the clear examples
that in the view of the democratic upper echelon that the US Constitution
is flawed. The common ignorance of laws in general and complicated historical
jurisprudence concerning the US and States constitutions invites the Democrat
demagogues to ever bolder distortions, if not conscience lies.
We could the last days have learned a
lot from the experts about the provisions of the Constitution and the relative
independence of the State constitutions from the Federal Constitution.
That is if one listens with an open mind. Can we expect this from the general
public? I suggest we have reason to doubt that. This is where the democrats
are always ready to make use of, to promote their idea in the mind of the
lesser educated, that the US is a "democracy". (Would that be a reason
to continue poor public education?) And who would deny that the US is a
democracy? It is however a much better constructed political system put
together by conscientious people with foresight, for God fearing people
as the people at that time of the Framers were. What they constructed was
and is a federation of states into a republic, according democratic methods
making decisions on local level to be represented on stepped up, successive
levels of government, to finally completing this chain on Federal
level, while people still can feel as being one people. It preserves
local, relative autonomy, for States, Counties, Municipalities and other
smaller entities, such as Boroughs, School boards down to family units.
This is the way the people from the grassroots level up govern themselves
through their representatives. If, as Democrats would like, the steps in
between would be eliminated the representation for the minorities would
be totally subjugated to the centralized power of the "popular majority"
and any local preferences would be impossible, because of the non differentiating
legislating power of power hungry manipulating politicians as is already
to be observed in past and particular in the present. This is why Democratic
politicians as Hillary, Gore and so many others, promoting abolishing the
electoral college and/or supporting the "popular vote" concept. Both and
either these factors would get the Democrats in power forever. This
is why those who contend for the leadership of the Democrats are a danger
to Democracy and the United States Republic.
