Preamble to the Constitution of the U.S.A.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Liberabit is the personal political commentary site of Mark Oaks. I take full responsibility for all that is written here. I reserve the right to change my opinions at any time. I do not expect everyone to agree with me, but I do expect civility and I will not answer crude, arrogant, hateful, or distasteful email. I respect your right to your opinion and ask that you respect my right to my opinion (yes, I expect even leftists and atheists to respect my right). You will find me to be very conservative in my views.

At one time, the Supreme Court declared that America
“is a Christian Nation”

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you–ask what you can do for your country.”
—John F. Kennedy, Inaugural Address, January 20, 1961

“I’m convinced more than ever that man finds liberation only when he binds himself to God and commits himself to his fellow man.”
—Ronald Reagan, Remarks at the Annual National Prayer Breakfast, January 31, 1985

“If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.”

“You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery. If nothing in life is worth dying for, when did this begin–just in the face of this enemy?–or should Moses have told the children of Israel to live in slavery under the pharaohs? Should Christ have refused the cross? Should the patriots at Concord Bridge have thrown down their guns and refused to fire the shot heard around the world?”

“We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”
Ronald Reagan, A Time for Choosing, October 27, 1967

“You know why there’s a Second Amendment? In case the government fails to follow the first one.”
Rush Limbaugh, 17 Aug 1993

It seems as though every time I hear a pundit on television, a politician, many judges, and yes, even the President, they are calling the United States a Democracy. America is decidedly not a democracy. In a democracy, everyone has one vote. All laws, regulations, policies, etc., of the government are decided by a plebiscite, that is, the majority of all the voters in a country decide every case. It is a true “one person, one vote.” Does it not make you wonder that leftists always refer to their socialist utopias as “democracies”? Democracies are not very good forms of government; they have never worked well in the past.

In our form of government, which is a Representative Republic, we elect representatives to decide such issues for us. The closest we come to a democracy is in the election of our representatives. In an election the majority of the voters decide who our elected representatives are. But it ends there. After the election, our representatives vote for our laws, policies, regulations, etc. A plebiscite, that is, a majority of voters do not. Our Constitutional Representative Republic has worked well since its inception. Though not perfect, it has proved to be the best form of government ever designed.
