DEFINITION: DEMOCRACY vs LIBERTY

Benjamin Franklin

Decades ago, I learned the dangers of Democracy …..   Basically, it’s mob rule, yet the people clamor for democracy.  

There’s a real danger in Democracy – it’s whoever owns the media, then rules the nation and we’re seeing it today.

Back in 1969, after debate, my Political Science professor convinced the class that “Democracy is the Dictatorship of the Majority”.   

He then went on to explain why a “Republic”, instead!   Today, it’s apparant!

We were to have elected intelligent, moral men, and that would keep America on the right track!  

Instead, we elected lawyers and the greedy.   They’ve bribed the greedy with their own money.   Our plight IS our fault!

With the media (the “watchmen on the wall”, is what they were to be) having failed us ….   They were to alert us to the approaching danger ….   They were to blow the Shofar and bring us to attention.   They’re corrupt as well.

With the President and the legislators now corrupt, … the courts as well, where do we turn?   The “OCCUPY” movement?   No; they not only don’t get it, they’re no different than the greedy bankers and corrupt on Wall Street!   Many just want their bailouts.

I’ll not offer my solution here, but I’ll be honest: I sure don’t trust OCCUPY; few are intelligent, and many of those that are, have sold out to Communism and Socialism.   What I will do, is draw you a word picture …. one used by one our founding fathers.   It’s simple and well thought out.

Not too long ago, I asked my good friend to deliniate the difference between Freedom and Liberty for me.   Today, another friend sent me this! 

“Democracy… is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.

Liberty… is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”

About josiahe

Watching closely, working to understand all I may, in this "Age of Information", even from my limited view, I can see much of what's going on ..... and I oft see it's going to impact all of us which is why I share it. My focus is to expose evil, and to serve my Lord and savior Jesus in whatever way He shows me. If one waits long enough, better writers will come along and comment; it's just that I have so little patience with the evil that lurks among us and I've wasted so much time and now, there is so little left! WELCOME!
