James Madison Wrote:
Democracy is the most vile form of government... 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.
Irving Kristol Wrote:
In a democracy, the will of the people is supreme. In a republic, it is
not the will of the people but the rational consensus of the
people—a rational consensus which is implicit in the term
consent—which governs the people. That is to say, in a
democracy, popular passion may rule—may, though it need
not—but in a republic, popular passion is regarded as unfit
to rule, and the precautions are taken to see that it is subdued rather
than sovereign. In a democracy all politicians are, to some degree,
demagogues: They appeal to people’s prejudices and passions,
they incite their expectations by making reckless promises, they
endeavor to ingratiate themselves with the electorate in every possible
way. In a republic, there are not supposed to be such politicians, only
statesmen—sober, unglamorous, thoughtful men who are engaged
in a kind of perpetual conversation with the citizenry.
It is time to stop talking and start acting! Our children's textbooks are being re-written, and even our president calls the United States a Democracy. It is time to take action and to restore the Republic to what it was intended to be. This will not happen without work, time and effort. Democracy has gained a huge foothold in our nation and only through education and action will it be removed.

Rights Are you aware that the bill of rights granted no rights? That's right. They granted no rights and were not written to apply to the people of the United States. Now before you hang me, let me clarify. The Bill of Rights were written to place ultra-legal blocks on the federal government from taking away essential rights of the people. Even the Supreme court cannot remove these blocks!
