~The Words Of Our Founding Father's~ James Madison

I get so sick of hearing people say that America is a Democracy.
Maybe it is now, but that is not how the founding father's had planned it or set it up. It was a Republic!! And I pray to God that it will soon return back to it's founding documents, morals and principles, and be a Republic once again!
We do not need to transform this country, we need to restore this country!

Here is something Madison wrote about the contrast between a democracy and a republic.......

"Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.....

A republic, by which I mean a government in which the scheme of representation takes place, opens a different prospect and promises the cure for which we are seeking." ~James Madison (Federalist Papers, No.10, pg.81)
