The Wisdom Of Our Founders
“I think we have more machinery of government than is necessary,
too many parasites living on the labor of the industrious.”
Thomas Jefferson Letter to William Ludlow, 1824
The roots of American history go back to the beginnings of man. Our country is the product of man’s hopes, fears, desires, events, motives and a cast of thousands. In the many pages of recorded history are rich tapestries of heroes and villains. There is one thread, however, that is ALWAYS present in these tapestries which is seldom recorded, seldom seen, sometimes sensed, and that is greed. In the background of every new adventure, every war, someone or some group has staked wealth and power. This power is not visible to the masses. It is tightly held by the “elite” and denied to the public at large. Only the players and events themselves are recorded.
The chapters at the top left and the bullets at the bottom of this page will take you to fascinating sites that have recorded our history. Chapter II will take you to the roots of our history that are a little harder to find and are today never shown in our public schools.

It is interesting to note that many (probably most all) modern day accounts of this country’s birth refer to it as a “democracy”. This is one of the greatest misrepresentations that can be put in print. This country was formed as a REPUBLIC, not a democracy. As a point of historical FACT, a democracy has never worked and has ALWAYS evolved into a socialistic dictatorship.
While in Europe cultivating support of the revolution, Ben Franklin was asked what type of government the Americans were forming. Franklin replied, “A Republic, if we’re vigilant enough to preserve it.”
It was not until during the great depression that anyone referred to the United States as a democracy and only because certain villains with power brainwashed it into our psych. Say the “Pledge of Allegiance” to yourself and see which word is spoken. A Republic makes every citizen a “king”, a king without subjects. A Democracy dissolves us all into the body politic and destroys freedom.
Democracy is when two wolves and a sheep vote on what they will have for lunch.
REPUBLIC OR DEMOCRACY?
THE SOLDIER’S TRAINING MANUAL,… issued by the War Department, November 30, 1928, set forth the exact and truthful definition of a democracy and republic – this manual was ordered destroyed by F.D. Roosevelt.

- Authority derived though mass meeting or any form of direct expression.
- Results in mobocary.
- Attitude toward property is communistic-negating property rights.
- Attitude toward law is that the will of majority shall regulate, whether it be based upon deliberation or government by passion, prejudice, and impulse, without restraint or regard to consequences.
- Results in demagogism, license, agitation, discontent, anarchy.
- Authority is derived through the election by the people of public officials best fitted to represent them.
- Attitude toward property is respect for laws and individual rights, and a sensible economic procedure.
- Attitude toward law is administration of justice in accord with fixed principles and established evidence, with a strict regard to consequences.
- A greater number of Citizens and extent of territory may be brought by its compass.
- Avoids the dangerous extreme of tyranny or mobocracy.
- Results in statesmanship, liberty, reason, justice, contentment, and progress.
