The key difference between a democracy and a republic lies in the limits placed on the government by the law. Both forms of government use a representational system where citizens vote to elect politicians to represent Their interests and the form of government.
The purpose of our Federal Government, as found in the Constitution is to establish Justice, Insure Domestic Tranquility, provide for the Common Defense, promote General Welfare and secure Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity.
These Ideas Include:
- All men and women are created equal.
- All people have basic human rights given to them by God.
- The only reason to have a government is to protect these human rights, which Jefferson lists as "life", liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
Government activity must be by the consent of the governed.
Based upon our constitution, all Americans should have the ability to exercise a direct influence over the government and on how they are governed? The most obvious way in which such influence might appear is via an electoral process. Those people in government should be concerned about their re-election, as they seemingly will be concerned, so that influence will be boosted further. Politicians will take account of opinion polls, focus groups, media responses and popular protests in fashioning their policies. And so, the people may have an enormous causal impact on what is done in their name. We are dedicated to Make & Keep America Great !!
