Restoring the Republic – Living With Imperfection

Rule of Law

The Rule of Law is the bedrock of a republican form of government.

The Rule of Law is an ancient ideal. Plato wrote one of the earliest surviving discussions. While convinced that the best form of government is rule by a benevolent dictator, Plato concedes that, as a practical matter, persons with the necessary leadership qualities are rare. — World Bank, Law and Justice Institutions

We preserve the rule of law in our country through a constitutional system of checks and balances, thereby preventing the coronation of a benevolent dictator.

This sitting president disregards the rule of law and assumes the role of benevolent dictator. Of a truth, this is a very dangerous time for you and me. Plato correctly assume persons with the character necessary to be a truly benevolent dictator are rare. So rare, I believe, as to not exist. I suggest that the unconstitutional, unlawful actions of this president must be stopped. The only constitutional way to stop him is to have Republican majorities in both houses of Congress.

The socialist democrat party has forsaken all pretense of upholding and defending the Constitution. Our only recourse is to elect name-brand Republicans and Libertarians to the House and Senate.

No man or woman is perfect. Only God is perfect. Yes, my Republican and Libertarian friends are like me and like you – imperfect people. Get used to it.

“The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government…” — Article IV, Section 4, U.S. Constitution

“There is not in the whole science of politics a more solid or a more important maxim than this — that of all governments, those are the best, which, by the natural effect of their constitutions, are frequently renewed or drawn back to their first principles.” — James Wilson, Lectures on Law, 1791

Action

  • Get off your ‘blessed assurance’ to participate in local Republican, Libertarian and TEA Party activities.
  • Attend local Republican clubs: Men’s Clubs, Women’s Clubs, Hispanic Clubs, Young Republicans, High School Republicans, etc.
  • Know the candidates’ core values, voting records, local participation in Republican leadership, religion, work habits, etc. When candidates hold town halls or speak at public meetings, GO, LISTEN, ASK QUESTIONS, TAKE NOTES.
  • Assume there are no worthy Democrat or Independent candidates.

“Now also we beseech you, brethren, get to know those who labor among you [recognize them for what they are, acknowledge and appreciate and respect them all]—your leaders who are over you in the Lord and those who warn and kindly reprove and exhort you.” — 1 Thessalonians 5:12 Amplified Version
