AMERICA VOTES: ITS THE MIDTERM ELECTION OF 2014

A huge myth about America is that we are democracy.   WE AREN’T.

Most people often mistakenly refer to our nation as the greatest democracy on earth.  They are mistaken because we are not an absolute democracy, but a constitutional republic.  That is what makes our nation great, for if we were just a democracy, we would be anything but great.

A pure unbridled democracy is a political system in which the majority enjoys absolute power by means of democratic elections.  In an unvarnished democracy, unrestrained by a constitution, the majority can vote to impose tyranny on themselves and the minority opposition.  They can vote to elect those who will infringe upon our inalienable God-given rights.

Thus, a constitution that limited and divided the power of government was necessary to preclude elected officials from imposing tyranny on the people.  This is why they adopted a constitution with limited enumerated power, divided and checked across several branches and levels.

Today we vote for these checks and balances.
Today we vote for our congressmen and senators.
Today make your voice heard!
