UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC
Our goal is to provide truthful information and resources to empower people across party lines, helping them understand that the maintenance of our values, progress, and freedom depends on whether or not we stand behind a Constitutional Republic versus a Socialist Democracy - and understand the consequences of choosing one versus the other.
It is a form of government in which representatives are elected by the people to govern over them, according to the rules established in the law of the land - the Constitution. It is the United States’ form of government. U.S. citizens elect a President and other representatives, who then govern them as the Constitution directs them to. That means we, the people, have the authority to give the government power and to take it away as we see fit. The rules are made with the consent of the people and their representatives are constrained by the rule of law.
The second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence says "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it...".
A Constitutional Republic is the only form of government that can secure our liberty because we, the people, have the power to limit the actions of the government to secure our future, ensuring the freedom of life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, as well as a free-market economy based on supply and demand with little or no government control.
It is a form of government where the power is centralized and governing comes from those who govern, not from the people, which means we, the people, have little or no say in decisions that directly impact us, our future and our family’s futures. Also called “the nanny state”, the government provides for people’s basic necessities. Experience and history teach us that a large, bureaucratic government that’s not directly accountable to the people who govern it, performs badly, eventually resulting in socio-economic collapse. Researchers at SOAR have identified the primary reasons these governments fail. The self-interests of the people who run the government lead to their ‘abuse of power’ because of the lack of accountability or separation of the powers. It’s this very thing America’s founders worked hard to prevent.
