"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch, Liberty is a well armed lamb contesting the vote."--Ben Franklin
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government.”--The Constitution, Article IV, Section 4
Hamilton: "We are now forming a Republican form of government. Real liberty is not found in the extremes of democracy, but in moderate governments. If we incline too much to democracy we shall soon shoot into a monarchy, or some other form of a dictatorship."
Such as a dictatorship by mobs, like the French Revolution. I knew this unhinged mob hysteria of the Get Trump-crowd reminded me of something:
|ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, The Washington Post, The New York Times, the DNC, etc.|
They fancy themselves heroes of the First Amendment, but actually, they are the people our Founders warned us about.
Some Democrat Habits Never Change.
But you are going to have to come through us to get your hands on him.
Hamilton again: "After all, Sir, we must submit to this idea, that the true principle of a republic is, that the people should choose whom they please to govern them."
And the people chose President Trump, not the Pitchfork Press and the Habitual Lynch Party.
Semper Paratus-UPDATE: Jeffrey Lord: The High-Tech Lynching of an Uppity President
"Let’s cut to the chase.
This isn’t about a phony case for “obstruction of justice.” Much less for “impeachment.” If it were truly that, Comey would have done so before then-President Obama had vanished from those April airwaves on Fox. And Comey would have done so again the minute he left the White House and his dinner with President Trump. By now Comey would have secured a place in history as the only FBI Director who investigated two successive presidents for the same crime — obstruction of justice. He didn’t do it. Why?
To borrow from Justice Clarence Thomas, who originated the phrase when he himself went through the liberal media maw during his confirmation hearings, this has nothing to do with an obstruction of justice much less evidence for impeachment. What Comey is involved in here and what we are seeing unfold in front of our eyes is a high-tech lynching of an uppity president. To use the Trump phrase, this is what happens when an outsider president arrives in Washington to “drain the swamp.” What we are seeing in this endless series of stories about Trump — all of them from gutless anonymous sources and all of them disputed — is the desperate denizens of the swamp fighting for their survival against the duly elected president of a very angry American people who have had enough of special interest politics and the cronyism and nest feathering that comes with it.
The buddies and cronies of the Swamp want Donald Trump out of the White House. Now.
On Wednesday, President Trump gave the commencement address to the graduates of the Coast Guard Academy and said:
“Over the course of your life, you will find that things are not always fair and that things happen to you that you do not deserve, and that are not always warranted, but you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight,” Trump said.…Exactly.
“Adversity makes you stronger — don’t give in and don’t back down and never stop doing what you know is right,” Trump said. “Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever comes easy — the more righteous your fight, the more opposition you’ll face.”
Newsflash? The fight, the push-back like you have never seen from we uppity supporters of the uppity president, begins now.".......
