Words Mean Everything
During the summer of 2014, Princeton University noted in one of their research that the U.S. is no longer an actual democracy…
From that one statement alone, if you had graduated from Princeton you should seriously be pursuing a refund — you would think in all their research they would have found out the U.S. was NEVER a democracy as our Founding Fathers went out of their way to be sure one was never set up.
You will not find the word ‘democracy’ in the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, ANY of the State Constitutions, the Pledge of Allegiance, nor our National Anthem.
You will, however, find the word Republic once in the U.S. Constitution — Article 4, Section 4 — as follows…
“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence.“
By definition, a Democracy is mob rule — 50%+1 on ANY vote, which means the favored laws of the day would be subject to the fickleness of feelings for the day…
By definition, a Republic is ruled by laws where one person can challenge any law through a judicial process.
The majority is defined by law as well (50%+1; 60%; 67%; etc.)
The form of our government is a Constitutional Republic that uses a democratic process…
A democratic process in a government does not make it a Democracy.
If that were the case, and based upon their actions for the past few decades, then the left should be saying they are Tyrannists and not Liberals and Globalists as they have been suppressing and attempting to stifle any opposing views – but then again, tyranny seems to be the end product they want to achieve, is it not?…
And their impression and attempts to stifle has a lengthy list, to wit…
- Baltimore riots
- California – where do we start???…
- Chicago – always having a problem with guns
- Ferguson – riots
- Kenosha – riots and the 2A challenge for Kyle needing to protect himself
- New York City – where so we start???…
- Portland OR – riots
- Seattle – riots
- Black Lives Matter
- Liberal judges create their own policies, protocols, AND law
- the injuries and deaths from COVID and COVID vaccines
- the censorship of doctors sharing their very successful COVID treatment discoveries for COVID in Big Tech, the MSM, and in any Liberal-orientated organization
- Critical Race Theory is being subtly taught to our children without parental knowledge
- The Islam theocracy is being forced upon our children without parental knowledge (usually through CAIR)
- forcing our soldiers to be vaccinated
- demanding masks for a so-called virus that has a 99.97% survival rate
- permitting a child to determine their gender
- permitting men in women’s sports, locker rooms, and bathrooms
- our southern border
Do we really need to keep listing their patheticness of hiding what is happening?
Anyone watching any of the MSM channels or online content knows very well that the riots were called peaceful demonstrations, Antifa is paid through the Open Society, BLM channeled their donations from citizens and corporations into Act Blue who in turn channeled money to all Democrat politicians.
All of this is online – but don’t Google, Bing, or Yahoo it as they are in on the con as well, we use FreeSpace, Qwant, Start Page, Mojeek, Metager, or Swiss Cows for starters during our research.
If you haven’t used any of our recommendations then run your searches in parallel with Google, Bing, or Yahoo with our recommendations – you decide from there.
Your Attitude Towards Money Determines Your End Result
Returning to the research…
In 2014, by asking “[w]ho really rules?”, researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page argue that over the past few decades America’s political system has slowly transformed from a democracy into an oligarchy , where wealthy elites wield the most power.
To this much, only those that hate Trump more than they love our country will disagree with this statement.
But hold on…
When has anyone who has been poor really been in any prominent political office?
Even better, why would we want anyone of average means in the office?
Our Presidency is THE most powerful and influential office in the world – but only when it is occupied by someone that knows how to lead from that position.
Throughout the Bible, even most of the spiritual leaders were wealthy, and a few were even notably elite (such as Job)…
So, is it the money?
Or is it the attitude towards faith who are blessed with the money?
It is not any big secret that Congress, in general, is rich, on both sides of the aisle – though We the People have to start looking into how someone making $175,000 per annum goes from $3-5 million to $35+ million in 4 to 8 years time, even more, if they go past 8 years… Like Pelosi, Feinstein, McConnell.
Liberals (aka Globalists), in general, are stingy when it comes to charity at any level, they’re tighter than a frugal Irishman (I’m Irish, I can say this) – but frugality with $175,000 per annum doesn’t equate to an increase that is 10-times greater in personal wealth in a short time.
You would also be hard-pressed to find Liberals in a church that follows the Bible closely as well – notice I didn’t say they didn’t attend church but rarely do we find a Liberal in a church that follows the Word of God as written instead of a doctrine of organized religion, and even then we are finding them being uninvited from their church.
They are the most uncreative group of people you will ever meet – evident by their nasty habit of taking everything in content, totally ignoring the context, and inserting that content into anything they feel apropos, especially with scripture.
Many Republicans aren’t saints by any means either — to their they are much more generous towards charity and many of them are much more familiar with the context of the Word of God over church doctrines.
Even the most ardent student of the Bible is not perfect about the context of the Word of God — but at any given moment they could mop the floor with a Liberal in a debate focused on the context of the Word of God.
OK, enough harping on content and context – the other difference towards money by both parties is this…
Liberals are notorious for going heavy on social programs just as long as they are using someone else’s money (most of the time, yours!) – they do this to make the gullible taxpayers dependent upon them.
True Republican politicians will find means to fund a project through various means while minimizing or eliminating any tax on the people.
And many Republican citizens start businesses anywhere they see a need – their customers will tell you who is focused on their needs and not on getting rich.
When getting rich is a by-product and not an end result, businesses always fare much better.
There is another factor to take into consideration…
The 3rd Crisis of Our Political History: Progressivism and the “Living” Constitution
Since the 63rd Congress, the United States has been under a continuous crisis in its political history — that of Progressivism.
This is the 3rd crisis of our political history — the first 2 being our Revolution and our Civil War.
This Progressive movement was started with Woodrow Wilson in 1913, which is also the start of the 63rd Congress, and was aided by Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt, the Clintons, the Obamas, the Bidens, and multiple politicians especially in the Senate and House Leadership positions.
The Progressives reject our Judeo-Christian principles, including our notions of a fixed human nature and inalienable natural rights.
Instead, Progressives believe in a human nature that evolves and changes, which in turn justifies their efforts to break down the separation of powers in order to expand the size and scope of government far beyond our Founders’ intent.
Wilson also introduced the concept of our Constitution is a “living” document – one that needs to change with the times.
For someone that had a Ph.D., he really didn’t read our Consitution as well as our Declaration of Independence very well as there is nothing in both that has a time-sensitivity trait to it, save the need for departing from England.
Add to this, a living document consistent adds more power to those in power while our Constitution from the get-go limits government power and increases the of the people.
In order to understand fully this crisis, we must understand the causes of America.
America has 4 causes…
- A Material Cause — primarily the land and the people
- An Efficient Cause — the Founding Founders who led the Revolution in the name of the American people
- A Formal Cause — the Constitution, especially the structure of government it establishes, and
- A Final Cause — the principles of free government outlined in the Declaration of Independence
The American Founding sought to conserve the oldest and highest law, which according to the Declaration of Independence is “the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God.”
The Founders compared the natural law to the conventional law under which they lived, and—as described so eloquently and succinctly in the Declaration of Independence—determined that a revolution was justified in the name of this higher law.
Again, the Progressives reject all this as it goes against their belief in a human nature that evolves and changes, which nullifies their justification and efforts to break down the separation of powers in order to expand the size and scope of government.
So, who has had the majority control of Congress starting with the 63rd Congress?
We the People are the ones to blame for this — but that does NOT mean the Progressives are free from blame.
They did whatever they could in their power to get into power — and now that they are they there?
We need to do whatever we can in our power to remove them from office — mostly through educating ourselves as well as educating others.
There will be those that will be adamant — don’t bother with them, they would rather embrace audacity than embrace liberty.
But others can be persuaded — and many have been already by their own kind…
Just remember, Progressivism — and anything else not of our Founding Father’s vision — is nothing more than a gradual and silent encroachment by those in power.
I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
— James Madison
Final return to the research and the oligarchy being formed — many Republicans can’t walk away from this as they are just as guilty as most, if not all, left wingers.
However, we have been walking through our history for far too long asking God to stand aside instead of us taking a stand by His side…
How much longer do you think an oligarchy will exist live if we do?
How quickly will the oligarchy take over everything if we don’t?

BANNED DOCUMENTARY: Conspiracy Of Silence (1993)
Conspiracy Of Silence Is a documentary film detailing an alleged child sex scandal that involved many children from a Nebraska Institution, Boys Town, and Lawrence King - or Lawrence "Larry" King.
The organized child sex parties implicated the Reagan and Bush White House during the 1980s.
King was the ringleader of the sex ring which had links to other fellow political conservatives in Washington D.C., including
- Republican Lobbyist Craig J. Spence
- Sen. Elizabeth Dole's Staff, along with
- members of the financial elite of Nebraska
It features former CIA Director William Colby talking about the high-level child kidnap and sex-slave ring.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty
The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....
... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.
You can view the full oration by clicking here.
We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.There are only 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
