Citizens for A Constitutional Republic
The U.S. Constitution was never written for, nor was the U.S. system of government ever intended to be a “democracy”, but rather, a “representative republic”. Many of the founding fathers feared creating a “democracy”.
Historically, democracy leads to anarchy, which is “mob rule,” according to the The Republic (Penguin Classics) by Greek philosopher Plato
The form of government secured by the Declaration of Independence, the American Revolution, and the Constitution is unique in history and reflects the strongly held beliefs of the American Revolutionaries.
The primary difference between a democracy and a republic is who is sovereign. In a republic, sovereign power is held by “We the People” individually such that each individual is “endowed by his creator with UNalienable rights”. These rights can never be taken away by majority vote. The sole purpose of a republican government is to “secure those individual rights”. In a democracy, sovereign power is invested collectively only in the group as a whole.
“Today, prolific public policies and a mammoth government ridicule the constitutional principles established by our forefathers. Our government has grown to kingly proportions, arrogantly trampling the basic rights of its citizens. The few rule the many. But because our founders had remarkable foresight, we have the constitutional protections to move government back into its proper role.” Eric Gorodetzky
Citizens for a Constitutional Republic was founded in 2004.It is our hope that we will be able to help preserve freedom and Liberty for you, your family and future generations and to influence others and impact public policy. That as John Adams said in 1798, “Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people. It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other,” and because of this we stand for and promote the general principles of morality.
Citizens for a Constitutional Republic is a nonpartisan all inclusive organization. This group is dedicated to returning The United States Of America to a Constitutional Republic, with a limited Federal Government and restoring and preserving freedom under The Constitution of the United States of America.
Part of our goal is to help educate people about how great our nation is, how it was founded, and why the principles and structure of our government were put in place. Those who formed this government, did so because the reality of tyranny and despotism had a stranglehold on their lives. Being an “American Citizen” can no longer be a SPECTATOR SPORT ! ! We must BE PROACTIVE and DECISIVE. We are losing our rights at an alarming rate.We do not have much time left to be APATHETIC.
