2014: A Time for Choosing – Rule of Law or Mob Rule

January 6, 2013

Yogi Berra once said, "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."

A republic is wholly unsuited to a people who prefer the bondage of statist government, as we witness now the explosive growth of government welfare, including food stamps, extended unemployment and permanent disability payments, all unsustainable practices.

Prior to our present Constitution, this observation was made.

“It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution.” — Thomas Jefferson (1781)

Later on, in 1787, during the Constitutional Convention from which came our present Constitution, a lady named Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” He replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

We’re at a point in our history when we must ask ourselves, do we want to keep it, the republic, the rule of law? Or, do we want to settle for the tyranny of either a democracy that is simply ‘mob rule’ or a dictatorship.

This is indeed a time for choosing.
