Democracy vs. a Republic by Rosemary Tennis ( A good illustration)

A Little Refresher…

Katherine's Chronicle

In a Democracy, the majority rules. If the majority decided they wanted your bike, they could take it.

In a Republic, your bike is your property, and you do not owe it to anyone. It cannot be taken against your will, by law.

America is a Constitutional Republic.

Therefore the Constitution is the law of the land by which we are supposed to be protected.

In a Republic, the individual is protected FROM the majority, by constitutional law.

A Constitutional Republic is what we were given. It’s up to us to keep it.
