The Founding Fathers Were STRONGLY Against Forming a Democracy

First a couple of definitions…

A Democracy is governed by mob rule — whatever the majority favors, everyone has to settle for, and no one person has a right to challenge it — 50% +1 wins every time…


A Republic is governed by laws that have been sent through a process, and the passage of these laws is determined by whatever has originally been agreed upon as a majority – examples: 50%+1, 51%, 60%, 67% of the vote.


Unlike a Democracy, as well as where the argument the U.S. is a Democracy falls apart, one person can challenge these laws through a legal process in a Republic.

Again — this option is not available in a Democracy, this is available in a republic.

So how careful were our founding fathers as well as those founding our states in making sure we are not defined as a Democracy?

A search of any of the following documents will not find the word Democracy but will find the word Republic…

The Declaration of Independence

The U.S. Constitution

The Pledge of Allegiance

ANY of the State Constitutions

Republic is mentioned in our Constitution in Article 4 Section 4…

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.

In George Washington’s own notes, written between the Declaration of Independence and the passage of the U.S. Constitution, he mentions many times the dangers of accepting and forming a Democracy.

This warning was noted by many of the other signers of our Declaration as well

Thomas Jefferson saw the 49% being unfairly subject to the 51% and questioned the emotional stability of the 51% if the vote were taken during emotional times…

85 papers published together as the Federalist Papers provides more than ample evidence that the founding fathers were against Democracy and for a Constitutional Republic (content mostly written by Alexander Hamilton and James Madison)…

ALL the handwritten notes by the signers of the Declaration of Independence that assisted in constructing our Constitution were adamantly against Democracy and definitely wanted to form a Constitutional Republic.


Being a Republic was first declared publicly quite quickly when a Mrs Powell, waiting with others for the emergence of anyone from the Assembly Room of the Pennsylvania State House (now known as Independence Hall), saw Benjamin Franklin emerging and asked,

“Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”

Franklin’s response is well-known even by those who still think we are a Democracy,

“A Republic, m’am, if you can keep it!”

And those last 4 words carry more weight than most can ever imagine…

And they ring more true today than most even realize.

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.

There are only two nations that have placed God within their Constitution and way of life - one was created by God for the people he loves, and the other was created by people who love God.
