COMMON SENSE; Revisited | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


COMMON SENSE; Revisited

The Founders created a constitutional republic, not a
democracy. They knew that it was way too easy for the majority
in a pure democracy to violate the natural rights of the
individual. As Jefferson stated, “A democracy is nothing
more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people
may take away the rights of the other forty-nine.” Their
intention was to do everything possible to put into place a
form of government that would keep indigenous power from
being usurped by surrogate power. The only kind of government
entity that can maintain indigenous power is one that
is structured from the bottom-up.
