Letter To the Editor
It upsets me once I hear folks, even authorities leaders say that “America is a Democracy”. Right here once more is a state of affairs when a lie is repeated typically sufficient, folks merely start believing it.
Slowly through the years the US of America has been mistakenly designated a democracy, due to the mis-education of American historical past.
America’s founders knew what a corrupt system of presidency democracy was and did the whole lot to make sure our nation would by no means turn into one.
Our nation was based as a constitutionally restricted republic. This was frequent data a number of generations in the past. Bear in mind the Pledge of Allegiance: “and to the Republic for which it stands”? The Founding Fathers have been involved with liberty, not democracy. The phrase democracy doesn’t seem within the Declaration of Independence or the Structure. Quite the opposite, Article IV, part 4 of the Structure is sort of clear: “The US shall assure to each state on this Union a Republican Type of Authorities”
In a Republic, the regulation is supreme, and all males, together with its leaders, are topic to it. Founding father John Adams mentioned this: “A republic is predicated off an ‘Empire of Legal guidelines, and never of males.’”
A constitutionally restricted republic emphasizes the rights of the person. It’s not set as much as abuse your God given unalienable rights.
As one other presidential election comes upon us, the Electoral Faculty debate has been rekindled.
Alerted to the hazards of majority rule, the Structure’s framers inserted a number of anti-majority guidelines. One is that the election of the president shouldn’t be performed by a majority common vote, however by the Electoral Faculty.
The Electoral Faculty technique of selecting the president ensures that every state, whether or not massive or small in space or inhabitants, has some voice in choosing the nation’s leaders. Have been we to decide on the president underneath a preferred vote, the result of presidential races would at all times be determined by just a few extremely populated states.
The electoral school is a buffer that permits all states to have a voice. If we take away the position of the states in electing the president, our nation would not really be the US of America.
