Democracy or Constitutional Republic

From Wiki

John Adams defined a constitutional republic as “a government of laws, and not of men.” Constitutional republics are a deliberate attempt to diminish the perceived threat of majoritarianism, thereby protecting dissenting individuals and minority groups from the “tyranny of the majority” by placing checks on the power of the majority of the population.

  1. In order to know just how much we have strayed from the Consitution and what we need to do to bring bank limited government with the union of states as the masters of that government, we need to look at how the Constitution has been abused, marginalized, and minimized over the past 100 years.

    Take a look at http://www.republicof1789.com – this is a book-blog that lays out what has gone wrong, why it has gone wrong, and what we need to do to fix it.
