America is NOT a "Democracy"

America’s form of government is NOT a “democracy”, and I’m SO tired of hearing it called such. The Constitution for the united States of America formalized a Representative Republic, NOT “democracy”. Article IV, Section 4 of this great document says
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.”
The founding fathers knew “Democracy” was a bad idea – basically ‘mob rule’. John Adams puts it pretty descriptively:

“[D]emocracy will soon degenerate into an anarchy, such an anarchy that every man will do what is right in his own eyes and no man’s life or property or reputation or liberty will be secure, and every one of these will soon mould itself into a system of subordination of all the moral virtues and intellectual abilities, all the powers of wealth, beauty, wit and science, to the wanton pleasures, the capricious will, and the execrable cruelty of one or a very few.” –John Adams

Now here’s an interesting parallel:
Luke 22:25 Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors.

Just something to ponder upon.

Until next time……
