Dispelling Constitutional Myths - Part III
Topic: Saving the Republic
“A threat to our democracy”… a term thrown around so often these days by the mockingbird media that the civically ignorant American doesn’t even recognize the hoodwinking agenda driven by the artists of propaganda.
So what is a democracy anyway?
In the simplest of terms, a democracy is a form of government that gives power to the people. In fact, the word itself originates from two Greek words... “demos” (the people) and “kratia” (power or authority). However, in a pure democracy form of government, the majority opinion rules the day and the minority opinion has no place.
Our founding fathers intended to design a system of government by which the God given rights of the individual are protected, regardless of whether those rights are in the majority or the minority opinion, with the Bill of Rights spelling out what the government does and does not have jurisdiction over.
The predicament we find ourselves in today though is that people think Myth #3 is fact.
Myth #3: The primary responsibility of the judiciary is to protect the minority from the majority.
The result of this myth is that the judiciary has been inserted into a position where the constitution belongs. If this myth were actually fact, there would be no equal protection for individuals under the law allowing for a miscarriage of justice, as each judge is left to interpret the law according to his or her own views or agenda.
What a minute. Isn’t that exactly what we’re experiencing today with the weaponized justice department and corrupt courts?
In reality, no branch of government was designed to protect the minority from the majority or vice versa. That’s what the CONSTITUTION was designed to do… restrain the government (minority) from the people (majority). When the judicial branch stepped outside of its jurisdiction and started doing what the constitution was designed to do, our laws got out of whack and the power of the government grew.
Take the issue of prayer in public schools as an example. According to this Gallup poll from 2014, 61% of Americans supported allowing daily prayer in the classroom. That’s a clear majority, and back in 2001, that number was even higher at 66%, down from 70% in 1999. Yet over 30 years prior, the Supreme Court ruled in 1962 that school-sponsored prayer in all state funded schools violated the Establishment clause of the First Amendment. Prayer in public schools was outlawed after that, even though a majority of Americans supported it.
So why was the court allowed to make a decision that went completely against what the majority of Americans wanted? Because too many people believe in myth #3.
