Having listened to the first 15 minutes of Mark Levin’s podcast March-15, inspired the following:
We live in a Republic. This nation was founded as a Republic.
It was not founded as a pure democracy. It was not founded as a parliament. It was not founded as a monarchy. It was not founded as an autocracy.
There’s a big difference between the American Revolution and the French Revolution.
The American revolution was a revolution against governmental tyranny.
The French revolution was a revolution against French society.
The French revolution was about an ideology whereby the society must be focused all the time – not on the needs of the individual, not about protecting the individual or individual sovereignty, but on the general will and the common good.
(Kind of like what we’re seeing today with the Left)
The problem is that the general will and the common good are different definitions for different people. And yet they all think they’re righteous in putting down the individual and putting down the individual’s freedom and free will for the general will and the common good.
That was the French revolution. They destroyed their own society.
(Kind of like what today’s Left is trying to do)
The American revolution was not about destroying the American society. It was about defending it.
What you see going on today is a form of the French revolution against the American revolution.
What you see going on today is a form of a Marxist Autocracy.
Our Constitution was set up a certain way for a reason. Which is exactly why it is under attack by the hardcore Left and by their voices in the media, and others.
We have our Constitutional system. It is the ONLY legitimate form of government in America – our Constitution. Anything else is not legitimate. That means whatever it comes to be, or whatever is coming to be, is illegitimate if it doesn’t comply with the Constitutional system.
We have separation of powers. The purpose of which is to have a functioning government, but to protect the individual. And to avoid two things… Rule by the mob, which they saw in the French revolution, and rule by the monarchy which they revolted against.
So the founders developed a Republic. Separation of powers. It’s right in the Constitution. Aritcle I, II, III, Checks and balances all through the Constitution. Later on they would add a Bill of Rights, the specific purpose of which is to defend the individual against this federal government that they created.
And in addition, they were very concerned that the States retain the vast majority of power and that the individual retain their unalienable rights.
The Left is attacking all of this. The left is an offshoot of Marxism.
Their ideology demands conformity and centralization. They are literally trying to destroy the construct of the Constitution.
And they are out of the closet now. Totally out of the closet.
They are attacking the Constitution. The 1st Amendment is under absolute attack. The 2nd Amendment is under constant attack. Endless efforts.
Always proclaiming in a self-righteous way that they’re doing it for the people. They’re doing it for the safety of the people. They’re doing it in the name of the people.
They insist on doing it by executive fiat, statute, judicial fiat.
But if you’re going to change the Constitution then you must Amend the Constitution (but they are unable). It’s done one of two ways… Either a convention of states, or, 2/3 of both houses of congress to send it to the states and 3/4 of the states to ratify. But they can’t get 2/3 of both houses and they certainly can’t get 3/4 of the states.
So what do they do? They effectively change the Constitution anyway. That is illegitimate.
The entire Republican System is under attack.
If you would like to listen to Levin’s podcast that day, the first (15 min.) segment is a good one.
