Tuese Ahkiong Telling you all your lives that you are a democracy by your teachers, politicians, leaders is a brainwashing technique used by the elite to deceive you, control you, and then enslave you.

Julio Hurtado Sam Adams was right in saying that democracies waste themselves. Take the lesson from ancient Athens, Athenian leadership heavily relied upon the leadership of Pericles, especially during the Peloponnessian War against Sparta. As soon as Pericles died of the plague that was going through much of Athens during its siege, the other leaders turned against each other to take the place of Pericles. In the wake of that power struggle, many athenian generals paid with their lives, for the blunder that those same politicians sent them to, in Sicily. Also, because of the valid, but stinging internal criticism by an aware group of people, led by a self-aware and astute man, those politicians executed Socrates. Democracy at best is a nice system, however always remains very vulnerable to neglect, geo-political size, passions and misinformation. A healthy democracy requires a well-informed and well-educated populace that wholly participates.

Kelly Nelson Birks I've been preaching to Messiah for a while now. The comparison between us and Rome as well as any other historical nation that has come and gone, is exactly the same. Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it.

Don Freeman I would also include that fact that only the most naive give any credibility to anything the government says about anything. In other words, the public no longer believes the government. The only way to govern those who don't believe anything you say is through force. That's the reason for the police state. It's to force people to be governed by a government with no credibility.

Julio Hurtado Good point, Tu. In the words of Ecclesiastes, "there is nothing new under the sun." If we, Americans, repeat history just like our ancient roman fore-bearers did, then it will plainly exhibit our arrogance of not learning the great lesson to society; I believe that Francis Schaeffer has spoken much of this lesson in his book and documentary series, "How Should We Then Live?"

Tuese Ahkiong The Constitution was written to GOVERN the GOVERNMENT and NOT the people, and NOT the states.The Bill of Rights should have been called"The Bill of Limitations on Government"The Bill of Rights does not give citizens rights. Its sole purpose is to: Safeguard God-given rights by limiting government power.The Founders insisted that Congress shall make no law limiting speech, religion, assembly, petitioning, press, bearing arms and so forth... The Amendments are directed squarely at the Government and NOT the individual or the states.

Julio Hurtado Good point in bringing up: the Constitution does not define the rights of the people, but confirms the God-given rights the people justly have. I think the problem, is that with liberty comes responsibility; and rather than people taking responsibility over themselves (self-government), they'd rather give that responsibility wholly to the government. That is my theory as to why our people so unwittingly and willingly yield their rights away.
