Republic vs. Democracy

America was founded as a republic because a pure democracy contains the seeds of its own destruction.

The ultimate evolution of a simple democracy is mob rule and unions, that ultimately transforms into a dictatorship as bad or worse than whatever form of government the democracy was originally constituted to replace.

America is a republic because the founders saw the need for elected representatives of all the people to act as stewards of the nation, focused on its founding principles in the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

(Reuters) – The Wisconsin state Assembly on Thursday approved sweeping restrictions on public sector unions in a stinging rebuke of the labor movement that critics fear will encourage other states to follow.
