A Lesson on Governments

I have noticed lately that a lot of people do not know or understand the differences in governmental systems.  Many do not understand the governmental system set up by our founding fathers to give us freedom.  Frequently it is called a "Democracy", which is incorrect, and thank God!

Here's a simple video that pretty much explains governmental systems.  It doesn't ask you to pick or choose between them, it just explains them.

I ask everyone to pay special attention to the last couple minutes of the video and see if you can draw some modern day parallels.

The American Form of Government.

  1. all i have to see is how the marxist liberals take the phrase”to provide for the general welfare” and twist that into meaning they should get free pedicures for live,to understand that anything short of a republic,is just theivery by the mindless minority. 

  2. Actually it’s “promote the general welfare”, but you are right, they tend to think it means “provide”.

  3. [this is good] Another political spectrum but an illuminating one.The final words “…will eventually end up with a tyranny of the elite.”So now that you in the US have a fully-fledged oligarchy, while the confused mob believe they still have a democracy, how the hell do you think you are going to get back your republic?Give you a clue: according to this excellent little video, it will be via anarchy.    The only way the mob gets convinced finally to take action is when the greedy oligarchy finally succeed in making things bad enough.They always do.

  4. theres no need for a tranny,theres no need to fall into anarchy,all it needs is enough people to see obama,pelosi and people like barney frank to be seen for what they really are, and this country will be on the road back to freedom in no time.

  5. I only hope they’ll let us settle this politically.  The alternative is anarchy and bloody revolution.  John F Kennedy said ” If you make peaceful revolution impossible you make violent revolution inevitable.  Since it’s been shown that they are willing to fix elections to stay in power.  Even if everyone is awake and attempts to vote them out, do you think they will let us at this late stage in the game.  They already have the power grid in place. All they need is an excuse to lock down all the people. 

  6. Isn’t that a great little video?  Is there another one that expresses this sentiment? ”
    An honest man is one who knows that he can’t consume more than he has produced.’

    “To trade by means of money is the code of the men of good will. Money rests on the axiom that every man is the owner of his mind and his effort. Money allows no power to prescribe the value of your effort except the voluntary choice of the man who is willing to trade you his effort in return. Money permits you to obtain for your goods and your labor that which they are worth to the men who buy them, but no more. Money permits no deals except those to mutual benefit by the unforced judgment of the traders. Money demands of you the recognition that men must work for their own benefit, not for their own injury, for their gain, not their loss—the recognition that they are not beasts of burden, born to carry the weight of your misery—that you must offer them values, not wounds—that the common bond among men is not the exchange of suffering, but the exchange ofgoods. Money demands that you sell, not your weakness to men’s stupidity, but your talent to their reason; it demands that you buy, not the shoddiest they offer, but the best that your money can find. And when men live by trade—with reason, not force, as their final arbiter—it is the best product that wins, the best performance, the man of best judgment and highest ability—and the degree of a man’s productiveness is the degree of his reward. This is the code of existence whose tool and symbol is money. Is this what you consider evil?”  Ayne Rand

  7. [this is good] Great video!  What is it from?

  8. Unlike other regimes in history, our military is different.  Their oath and honor is directed towards defending the Constitution and its people against all enemies both foreign and domestic, not the government nor their “commander in-chief”.  While it is certainly true there are some military bureaucrats friendly to the far left, they are a very small minority.  Should those in power “trigger” a change, I am quite certain that change will not be long lived.I have military friends, and all of them express their love and duty to defend freedom, not the government.  I can guarantee they would never follow an order designed to repress or remove our freedoms.  You see, the second amendment is the last defense against tyranny when all other checks and balances have failed.The key here is to remember it is a LAST resort.

  9. The video is from The John Birch Society and the full video is called “Overview of America“.  It’s very very low priced and a good view.

  10. i have family at 4 different bases,if these marxists really try some militant move they will be shut down in 24 hours.

  11. I hope your right!Russian Military Analysts are reporting to Prime Minister Putin that US
    President Barack Obama has issued orders to his Northern Command’s
    (USNORTHCOM) top leader, US Air Force General Gene Renuart, to “begin
    immediately” increasing his military forces to 1 million troops by
    January 30
    , 2010, in what these reports warn is an expected outbreak of
    civil war within the United States before the end of winter.violating posse comitatis Northcom has also made agrements with Canada and Mexico to allow forign troops in the us in case of civil unrestI hope your friends are right and true.

  12. It sounds ominous, but the Russians have always been paranoid and wrong about the USA.  The downfall of the U.S.S.R. was caused by Reagan exploiting that fact.  He knew “Star Wars” was not possible given the current level of technology, but he also knew the Soviet’s would be scared into spending ridiculous amounts of money to counteract it.The Russian’s, have experience with revolution and and the anger of the people.  Nevertheless, they have never lived in a system such as ours.  There’s a difference between repression under an incompetent monarchy, and repression under an incompetent oligarchy trying to usurp freedom previously fought for.  The difference here is the ones in charge are the usurpers.The oath the US military takes is unique to all military oaths.  Their oath is to the Constitution and the People of the United States to defend them against all enemies foreign and domestic, not to the government or sovereign.  It is also a volunteer military, whereas most other nations require two years of service before college.  For our military to ignore their oath is to dishonor their service and their family.This is another “genius” laid out by our founding fathers, as well as the second amendment.True, we had a civil war once, and it was to preserve the nation as the Constitution set it up to be.  To think our military would assist in a Marxist coup is very low on the probability scale.  There can be as many leftist Generals as they want, but there will be a point when they go too far and suddenly they are a prisoner and not a leader.Seriously though, if things got that serious, I honestly believe the military will be the hero not the villain, in the end.  This happened before in history.  Just look at Italy.  Mussolini was once loved and adored by the people, until they saw through the facade.

Come on, you know you want to say something.
