famous words not understood by legislators, presidents, citizens

A republic if you can keep it

John Birch Society explains

http://www.jbs.org/artman/publish/article_192.shtml

Those who call us other than a constitutional republic number in the hundreds. Wouldn't they have wised up by now? Nope, even constitutional attorney and author, best-selling by the way, Ann Coulter, recently calls the United States form of government a representative democracy in anOctober 19, 2005 article: Who was the second choice.

References:

Article IV guarantees each state its territorial integrity, "a Republican Form of Government," protection from foreign invasion, and, upon a state's request, national assistance in dealing with internal violence. Article V guarantees that no "State, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate,"

References:

Thomas Ingersoll, robert E. O'Connor, and Robert F. Pecorella, Politics and Structure, Essentials of American National Government, Wadsworth Publishing Company, Belmont, CaliforniaSixth Edition, 1975, pgs. 4-5.

A Republican Form

This statement appears in Article IV, Section 4. Several students have attempted to explain what the founding fathers meant by that provision, and concluded it means representative government, the form used in 1789, or democratic government with broad suffrage rights. No one is likely to secure a precise answer. The courts regard the question as political and decline to rule whether a given state government meets the requirements imposed by the Constitution. The matter is left for Congress and the President to determine.

"We are a representative democracy, and the whole foundation of our country is that we allocate representatives at the state, local and national levels based on the size and distribution of our population," said DeJong in a recent interview on Penn State's public broadcasting show "Take Note."

The Heist of All Time
The political crime of U.S. history.
By William P. Kucewicz, editor of GeoInvestor.com
Let's not mince words: The Democrats are trying to steal the presidential election — and are brazenly asking Florida's highest court to sanction the larceny.

If Al Gore and his cronies succeed, we will have witnessed the greatest political crime not just of our time but in all of U.S. history. The Florida fraud already eclipses the Lewinsky affair and Watergate. A Gore ascension to the presidency would indeed outrank even the assassinations of Abraham Lincoln, James Garfield, William McKinley and John F. Kennedy as the supreme insult to our democratic republic....

Letters to the editor
June 7, 2000
What America means to us ...
Dear Editor,
America, according to the encyclopedia "Funk and Wagnall," is the second largest isolated land mass of the earth, but, to us, that explanation is so barren and empty. America, to us, is a land, a most wonderful land, with a loving heart that is open to all people, at all times, regardless of race, color or creed.

America, to us, is a land of many freedoms. Freedoms, not just for us to enjoy but for all our fellow men to also enjoy. These freedoms were won for us by our forefathers, and were written for posterity in our famous document - the Constitution of the United States.

Where, other than in America, would we have the freedom of speech and, when we become of age, the privilege of voting for citizens who seek offices, the honor of selecting a man who holds the highest office in our land, the President of the United States?

America, to us, is a Land of Plenty. She abounds in farmlands, waterways, natural resources and historical sites.

America is truly the "melting pot" of the world. She accepts all races and nationalities. Here, many dejected persons from other countries have found refuge and peace that they have never known before.

America, to us, means Democracy, a government of the people, by the people and for the people. This "Democracy" means security, security from any tyrant or dictator, because, we, the people, are the Democracy.

America, to us, is "home." Home, where we can love our families and live and laugh with our neighbors.

Funk and Wagnall, you may be correct, but, to us, America means so much more.

Lainie Wilson, Regent Chapter members,

"The last 19 days have been extraordinary ones. As our nation watched, we were all reminded on a daily basis of the importance of each and every vote. We were reminded of the strength of our democracy, that while our system is not always perfect, it is fundamentally strong and far better than any other alternative.

... "This has been a hard-fought election, a healthy contest for American democracy. But now that the votes are counted, it is time for the votes to count. The vice president's lawyers have indicated he will challenge the certified election results. I respectfully ask him to reconsider.

LIEBERMAN: STOP THE PROTESTS, DISSERVICE TO DEMOCRACY
In order to come together as one nation behind our next president, whoever that may be, we have to move through these difficult days with reason, deliberation and abiding respect for the workings of our democracy.

LIEBERMAN: STOP THE PROTESTS, DISSERVICE TO DEMOCRACYVery very scary, doesn't like Republican demonstrators outside court of fraud!

Towards the end of Friday's installment of broadcast excellence, we heard this line being pushed by Senator Joe Lieberman. Without taking questions, Lieberman informed the press that, "These demonstrations are a disservice to our democracy," and that, "this is a time to honor the rule of law, not surrender to the rule of the mob. "

In the end, as frustrating as this wait may be, what we are seeing here is democracy in action, careful and lawful effort to ensure that the will of the people is done. Other systems of government may work faster. Curtailing voters' rights may get a result that is faster. But no system of government is more just or more enduring than ours.

A Disputed Election
If the next president is to take office with any kind of a mandate at all and with the country not bitterly divided over his legitimacy, we all must fall back on the Constitution, our founding document, and the laws based on it.

We have the longest functioning democracy in the world because we have always tried to follow the rule of law. Now more than ever that must be the path we choose over the course of what are certain to be some acrimonious days to come."

What we're being asked to consider today about Palm Beach County is that, well, it's not fair if the ballot confused people and they made a mistake. We can't hold an honest mistake against them. Our democracy counts for more than that! We've got to let these people vote again. We can't deny these people their right to participate in the greatest Democratic process the world has ever known.

The law, of course, doesn't matter.
