    Who is the KING in America? Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary defined "KING" as: "KING, n. 1. The chief or SOVEREIGN of a nation; a man invested with supreme authority over a nation, tribe or country; a monarch. Kings are absolute." Kings have "subjects" who are subjected to their will. The word "citizen" is Greek, and has the connotation of co-ruler, co-sovereign, co-king. "Polis" is the Greek word for city, and "politics" was simply the "business of the city." The Greek city-state of Athens had about 6,000 citizens, and every citizen had to be at the marketplace everyday to talk politics....

    If it weren't so disgustingly dishonest, it would be hilarious. MSNBC, with a helping hand from a Lincoln Project Never-Trumper, has uncovered a Communist who has somehow managed to infiltrate himself into a lofty elected position. And it's none other than . . . Republican Senator Mike Lee, from that hotbed of seething Stalinism, Utah! Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Sept. 16 (UPI) — Barbados Governor-general Sandra Mason said Wednesday her Caribbean island nation has decided to remove Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state and declare itself a republic. Barbados, a tourist destination in the eastern Caribbean 700 miles off the Venezuela coast, won independence from Britain in 1966 but has remained a British commonwealth realm.

    Mount Holyoke College hosted in September its Common Read Keynote with Pulitzer-winning New York Times journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones to talk about The 1619 Project, which was chosen to be this year’s common read. During the keynote, Vice President for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer Kijua Sanders-McMurtry interviewed Hannah-Jones. "I don’t think we’re an exceptional nation. I think that’s ludicrous for any nation to make that claim, and we certainly cannot make that claim."

  • Constitutional Republic vs. Pure Democracy: How the U.S. Election Process Has Changed

    Conservatives are generally quick to point out that America is a republic, not a democracy. But what really is the difference, and are they even right? Voting in America has changed considerably since the days of our founding. Back then, the government didn’t even print official ballots. Instead, you got ballots from the candidate who wanted your support. Sometimes voting took place in public, so everyone knew who you voted for. And, of course, the franchise was largely restricted to white, male property owners. Now, anyone who turns 18 can vote. And the Democratic Party wants to increase ballot access...

    Vote-by-mail is the devil It’s valid for those of us on the right to be concerned about the fate of our beloved country, especially in this strangest of years. We are, after all, facing a host of problems: the coronavirus pandemic, the successful radical leftist indoctrination of two generations of public school kids, and the resulting lust for socialism on the American left resulting from that. There is also the fact that the idiot lefties are trying to ruin sports, entertainment, and even hamburgers, but we’ll have to save that for another day.When I survey the 2020 landscape trying to...

    Memoria Press ^ | Aug 2013 | Cheryl Lowe
    American government and political science will come alive when you read the Greeks and Romans, the same way that words come alive when you study Latin and Greek. There were many influences on the Founding Fathers, and certainly the modern philosophers—Locke and Hume—were important along with the tradition of English liberty. But separation of powers, mixed government, and checks and balances are the principles that first come to my mind when I think of the genius of the American political system; and where did these concepts come from? Plato in the Republic describes five types of government and says they...

    CNS News ^ | January 28, 2020 | Walter E. Williams
    During President Donald J. Trump's impeachment trial, we'll hear a lot of talk about our rules for governing. One frequent claim is that our nation is a democracy. If we've become a democracy, it would represent a deep betrayal of our founders, who saw democracy as another form of tyranny. In fact, the word democracy appears nowhere in our nation's two most fundamental documents, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. The founders laid the ground rules for a republic as written in the Constitution's Article IV, Section 4, which guarantees "to every State in this Union a Republican...

    Plato was a Greek philosopher who lived in the city-state of Athens. In 380 BC, Plato wrote The Republic, where he described in Books 8 and 9: "States are as the men are; they grow out of human characters." "Like State, like man." The Republic is written as a collection of conversations of Plato's teacher Socrates. It gives insights into human behavior which is amazingly similar to today. Plato described government going through FIVE STAGES: "The constitutions of States are five." The FIVE STAGES are: "We count as one Royal and Aristocratical ..." followed by Timocratical, Oligarchical, Democratical, Tyrannical. Plato's...

    In the lead-up to the 2016 election, Democrats fretted openly about the possibility that Donald Trump, being a rather poor sport, might refuse to acknowledge an election loss. To be fair, Trump refused to state that he would accept election results, depending on the circumstances: “I’ll keep you in suspense,” he stated in his Oct. 19, 2016, debate with Hillary Clinton. Clinton, for her part, called his statement “horrifying,” adding that he was harming American democracy. Trump, of course, won. And Clinton spent the next couple of years suggesting openly that she had been robbed in the election. Democrats blamed...

  • Is the United States a democracy or a republic?

    Merriam-Webster ^ | unknown | Merriam-Webster
    One of the most commonly encountered questions about the word democracy has nothing to do with its spelling or pronunciation, and isn’t even directly related to the meaning of the word itself. That question is “is the United States a democracy or a republic?” The answer to this, as with so many other questions about meaning, may be phrased as some form of “it depends.” Some people assert that a country calling itself a democracy must be engaged in direct (or pure) democracy, in which the people of a state or region vote directly for policies, rather than elect representatives...

    Semantic infiltration within the political realm is typically defined, in its various forms, as unknowingly adopting the terms used by an opponent in such a way as to undermines one's own argument. With the help of their cronies in the mainstream media, leftists are exceptionally good at semantic infiltration. Take, for example, the words "illegal alien." The term is simple enough. When a citizen from a foreign country enters a country not of his origin, he is alien to that newly entered country because, by birth, he is not a citizen of it. When the individual has entered the new...

    A Washington state police chief who took a stand in refusing to enforce elements of the state’s widely encompassing new gun control package is now running for Governor of the state. He’s making a pledge to restore the gun rights of Washingtonians a central message of his campaign. Loren Culp is the police chief of Republic, Washington. He was praised by gun owners and vilified by liberal prosecutors for his constitutional refusal to enforce parts of a massive gun control law enacted in 2018.

    The New York Times has begun a major initiative, the "1619 Project," to observe the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery. It aims to reframe American history so that slavery and the contributions of black Americans explain who we are as a nation. Nikole Hannah-Jones, staff writer for The New York Times Magazine wrote the lead article, "America Wasn't a Democracy, Until Black Americans Made It One." She writes, "Without the idealistic, strenuous and patriotic efforts of black Americans, our democracy today would most likely look very different -- it might not be a democracy at all." There...
  • FEC Chair Says Trump ‘Undermines Democracy’ With Voter Fraud Claims

    Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairwoman Ellen Weintraub argued Monday that a failure to accept the results of free and fair elections “undermines our democracy.” “There is no evidence of rampant voter fraud in 2016,” Weintraub told CNN host John Berman. “To be suggesting to people that if the candidate they choose doesn’t win, that it’s because of fraud, that undermines our democracy.” Weintraub was pushing back against President Donald Trump’s repeated accusations of voter fraud that he has claimed may have cost him a greater margin of victory in 2016.
