Another Perspective

August 23, 2005

If we must accept the system of government that our Founding Fathers created at the birth of this nation, then let us hold our current elected officials to the standards set fourth by the creators. Also, if this system, the Constitutional Republic, is to succeed, then the citizens of this nation must be active participants.

Those citizens elected to serve as public officials must never forget that their duty is to serve the people; that each and every action be for the benefit of the Republic as a whole. A contract between those elected and the citizens must be made that if broken, leads to the timely removal of these officials.

It is the responsibility of the citizens to monitor the elected, to provide them with support when needed and to call for their resignation if need arise. At no time can this system be changed for the benefit of the few over the many lest the Republic be put in peril.

Violence shall be the last resort, but shall exist as a legal defense of the Republic by the citizens against the elected. Likewise, the citizens must continually police themselves to ensure that radical idealists do not endanger the Republic by spreading fallacies.

The freedoms enshrined in the Constitution do not override common sense or the laws of nature. Their purpose is to ensure that the citizens of this Republic be free from tyranny but not personnal responsibility.

It is of the utmost importance that each citizen monitor their own actions, and that compromises must be made to reduce the threat of internal strife. If we are to succeed as a unified Republic, then we must make individual sacrifices at times, each and every one of us, even to the extent of death.

Long live the Republic.
