"A Republic Madam, If You Can Keep It"

Do you cringe when you hear someone refer to the United States as a "Democracy"?
I do.
We are NOT a democracy.
We ARE a Representative Republic.
We elect "Representatives" to vote the wishes of the people they represent. At least that's the way it's supposed to work.

It's not a perfect form of governance, but to paraphrase Winston Churchill, all the others are less perfect.

But look what has happened:
Not only are our elected representatives apparently ignoring the wishes of the majority of their constituents, they are now trying to find a way to fraudulently pass a bill into law WITHOUT EVEN VOTING ON IT.
Representative Republic?
Not anymore. What the hell is this? I can no longer recognize my governing body, 'cause it sure as hell ain't a "Representative Republic"!

I'm angry.
Everyone I know is angry.
Do our "Representatives" have any idea just how angry we are?
WHO IN THIS GOVERNMENT IS "REPRESENTING" ME?!!

I am fearful of the things I am seeing and hearing, but I want someone... anyone to hear this:
If you attempt to pass this bill with a sleight-of-hand move like the "Slaughter Solution" or some other underhanded method, I'm truly afraid of what will happen to you. (And me.)
And to those of you so afraid of your constituents that you won't even attend Town Hall meetings...
The reason you're afraid is because you know you are no longer "representing" the majority.

Benjamin Franklin answered the question, "A Republic Madam, if you can keep it."
We've lost it.
Now the question is, can we get it back?

Like I've been saying - it starts in November with one simple phrase:

Throw them all out.

It's time to start over.

All of them. And if Hopey signs the Slaughtered bill, impeach him for treason.

TW - weaker. Must be a floating comment on the gov't...

This sitting President should have already been impeached for tyranny.
A impeachment with a conviction for actual removal.
He swore to uphold the Constitution, which he hasn't.
He can be removed for treason, bribery, plenty of that here, and other high crimes and misdemeanors.

Or how about a recall election that can be initiated by the voters based on political charges for mismanagemant, also plenty of that here.

Hi Greybeard,

Do you think public well-healthcare should pay for this?

Can someone please show Pelosi the door? I can't wait until Nov. to start cleaning house.

Looks like we get to clean that swamp for her - and golden horse I keep wondering the same thing - why hasn't someone started talking about impeachment? Heaven knows there are plenty of reasons.

Anon,

For the life of me, I have no idea why the subject hasn't come up. At the drop of a hat, they were on Bush like hair on an ape.

The MSM should be ashamed of themselves for their continual support of this maniac and his co-horts.
