   Democracy or a Republic:  Why America is Neither

Leave a comment


  Author, Chuck Frank

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      America is neither a democracy nor a Republic.  It is because in a Democracy or a “representative” Republic, laws will not be affected by corporate elite’s or nonprofit institutional lobbyists, but the country will be fashioned to benefit the people, their life, liberty, and their pursuit of happiness.  If those framers of our Constitution had foresaw the collateral damage that would have arose out of the ashes because of those high rollers of industry, non profits and other treasonous, sinister players within America’s deep state, they would have placed mechanisms within the framework of the Constitution to prevent their concentration of power and sought to protect the people from the present corruption, but also the web of hi-tech surveillance that is already here and is rapidly increasing which will come in the form of a 5G electronic worldwide, wireless network to where more
speed, bondage and intrusion of ones privacy will transpire and freedom will erode.
    Example:  Are the people ready for a car which they may be driving that will automatically send a signal to a police car alerting the officer if your seat belt is attached or not?

A Historical and Psychological Evaluation of an Anonymous Wannabe Dictator who was a Classical Sociopathic, Narcissistic, Egomaniacal, Xenophobic Demagogue

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

By the time this column is published in the Duluth Reader and also around the world, the mid-term election of 2018 will be over. So, whether there is a blue wave or not, I have decided to update – and actually shorten (!) – a 2016 column that will make important points that might help make sense for future voters, whether they will feel relieved, triumphant, sad or angry – or not. The electorate still needs to understand what really motivates divisive or tyrannical politicians that have sought power and wealth no matter the era or nation. Please read it carefully.

____________________________________________________________________________

A sociopath is a person whose behavior is antisocial, often criminally greedy, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility, empathy or social conscience. Sociopaths never sincerely apologize nor are they capable of exhibiting remorse for wrongs that they have committed.

A narcissist is person who has an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration, sexual gratification, applause and a lack of empathy for others.

A egomaniac is a pathological egotist, someone with a psychological disorder who exhibits symptoms like delusions of grandeur and an obsession with greatness, power or wealth.

A xenophobe is a person who is fearful or contemptuous of that which is foreign, especially of strangers or of people from different countries or cultures.

A demagogue is a political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.

Once upon a time, there was a egomaniacal, sociopathic, narcissistic and xenophobic national leader who was attempting to rise to political power in his politically-divided, post-war nation. This deeply flawed demagogue, who was worshipped by millions of rabble-rousing, beer-swilling, racist, sexist, gun-toting, anti-Semitic, flag-waving, uber-nationalist, xenophobic, white supremacists, professed that his goal in running for national office was to make his supposedly weak, supposedly under-militarized country great again.

Democracy vs. Oligarchy – ABUSING SENIORS

Democracy vs. Oligarchy

by David Arnold

This is the third in a series of articles on democracy in the United States. The first was “The death of democracy in the Probate Court,”

The second was “We the people and accountability of lawyers,.

We have all been taught since childhood that the United States is a democracy. I used to just accept that without questioning it. However, democracy is not automatic. It is a constant struggle to make sure no individual or entity takes control of the whole government.

The United Stated has the structure of a democracy with three different branches of government. There are supposed to be checks and balances between the three branches to prevent abuse of power by any one of the three branches of government.

The tripartite system of government is commonly ascribed to the French political philosopher Baron de Montesquieu. Having three branches of government is a necessary but not sufficient condition to insure a democracy. Montesquieu pointed out an additional requirement. The personnel of the three branches must not coincide. If a single person or entity controls all three branches, this destroys the checks and balances. The government ends up being an oligarchy.

FOR THE SAKE OF THE CHILDREN

Author,
Chuck Frank

While the nations sleep,  history has shown us that tyrants, kings, monarchies, oligarchies, and dictators have repeatedly abused their subjects, young and old, and in many ways, systematically sought to maintain their royal power and authority no matter what the cost. The initial abuse in the beginning went unnoticed because of cover ups and censorship but then later surfaces in the form of oppression, prison, fines, over taxation, corrupt judges, property takings, invasion of privacy, state-run news outlets, and thousands of laws and regulatory policies that continues to benefit the government yet not the people.

   Now then, in America’s present day ideology of a “Republic”, the term is meant to give a country and its people “true” representation, that is worthy as being a voice of the people and not special interests.  And since departing from Great Britain in 1776, the American people who contested the authoritarian regime of King George III had hopes for a better life with regard to freedom and basic needs.

  So, while, America and other nations through the centuries embraced “better” government by the people, elected leaders began to cater to corporate elite’s, organizations, lobbyists and their own star-studded centralized bureaucracy. And although the voice from the people was the original intention, America began to fall from grace to powerful elite forces that rule behind the scenes…  Deep State anybody?

  Consequently, while America  still has the appearance of a Republic and being represented by Congress and State “representatives”, the bigger picture reveals that certain players in America and also other world governments are on a mission to destroy freedom and nationalism in exchange for globalism, the redistribution of the wealth, political correctness, persuasion, propaganda, legalism, socialism and other forms of a highly oppressive, centralized bureaucratic process, which fully departed from the Constitutional framework fashioned by the founders. So, how will “we the people” stop the present runaway train in its tracks and unload the luggage that binds the people?

Expose this sinister agenda that aims to enslave the people and shout it from the rooftops!

Lessons for the Sanders’ Revolution of 2016 From the Doomed Progressive Politics of the Post-Vietnam Era in Australia

2 Comments

new-logo25kohlsBy Gary G. Kohls, MD

 

“Fear and negativity won out in Australia after the coup. Again, that familiar tune. We learn from this that opponents of change will do anything. As we’ve seen here, they will play dirty, they will vow and pledge and undermine like there’s no tomorrow. We cannot expect them to abide by democracy or decency.” – Meaghan Delahunt

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Four decades ago in Viet Nam War-era Australia, after a decade in which that nation’s progressive thinkers (especially its logically anti-imperialist, antiwar youth) were fed up with Australia’s collaboration in the stupidity and the atrocities of the American-led Vietnam War, a political movement emerged that came close to revolutionizing the ever-lasting right-wing Australian political system.

The early 1970s were exciting times for progressives, and it was happening at the exact same time that the disastrous and ill-conceived agendas of Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger were provoking chants in the streets that said “Hell No, We Won’t Go”. Australian progressives were sympathizing with returning American Viet Nam veterans who testified about the war crimes that they had committed “in country” and then, in disgust, went to Washington, DC and threw their military medals at the Pentagon.

The revolutionary Australian movement of the early 1970s was virtually indistinguishable from the politics of the 2016 Bernie Sanders-led movement that came close to upsetting America’s entrenched, conservative, perpetual war, pro-Wall Street, pro-privatization political system that has had increasingly firm control of America’s electoral politics for the last century. Back then, in Australia’s major parliamentary elections of 1972 and 1974, the Australian Labour Party’s very popular progressive politician (and democratic socialist) Gough Whitlam was elected and then re-elected as Prime Minister. Whitlam was vigorously opposed by the very conservative (right-wing, NeoLiberal) Liberal Party – the equivalent of the conservative Tory Party in England.

Below is what author Meaghan Delahunt has to say about how progressive politics in Australia was decapitated. Delahunt has uniquely experienced both the crushing Australian coup d’etat in 1975 and the equally crushing (and failed) Scottish Independence Referendum of 2014 (to gain independence from Great Britain).
