An Open Letter to Alan Caruba

Dear Mr Caruba,

I completely understand and relate to how disheartened you are, sir — that is a natural response to the shock of witnessing the most egregious and overwhelming attempt to destroy our Constitutional Republic and the freedoms it was intended to protect.

But yes, you are wrong.

Firstly, because this is not a Democracy, it is “A republic, if you can keep it.” as Ben Franklin said.

For example, although many people refer to this country as a democracy, the word “democracy” appears nowhere in the Constitution.

This is because we are not a democracy, and our founding fathers used strong words to make it clear that we should never become one. Consider the following statements:

Benjamin Rush: “A simple democracy … is one of the greatest of evils” (1789).

James Madison: “Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have, in general, been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths” (1787).

John Adams: “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide” (1814).

The simple fact is that the United States is a constitutional republic, not a democracy. It is inaccurate to use the two terms interchangeably. The source of authority and treatment of minorities are different for these two forms of government. In a democracy, the majority rules, meaning that there are no protections for minority rights. Whatever the majority wants rules the day. A republic, in contrast, is rule by law, and the law can protect the minority from the tyranny of the majority. ….

(The above quote is from an article entitled published in the .  —ed)

Secondly, because the only real weapon the enemies of our Constitution have in this War for the hearts and souls of the People is propaganda through twisting words and manipulating language — it’s second nature to the Left, they’ve been practicing for generations…all through Europe.
Our founders knew that well also, “How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!” — Samuel Adams

Is there anything devised by man that cannot be changed, undone and remedied by others with the Right, Will, Faith and Determination to do so?

We cannot afford to lose heart, that is exactly what the “Progressive” Socialists in their audacity are counting on, to so overwhelm us with their repetitive lies-to-be-truth that we give up and give in.

Never give up, never give in… through the Supreme Courts, the ballot box in November, and by peaceful civil protest if/when necessary, We the People Will prevail!

Please give a warm welcome to sosUSA a newcomer to our Blog. She and her family immigrated to the USA from Australia to escape their onerous gun control laws. She wrote “… law abiding Aussies had their guns confiscated the following year…”

She is fighting to keep America a Republic and not allow it to become a Socialist State. As she emailed to me “If the USA goes under, there really is nowhere else — this is it.  No retreat.” Words for all us Complacent Couch Potatoes to remember.   —ed
