Apparently, YouTube censors, in all their wisdom, didn’t like this video and deleted it, but I found it again on Rumble and updated this post so people can learn the truth.
If you ask Americans to name their country’s form of government, most of them will say they live in a democracy. However, the real answer is more complicated (and unexpected) than that.
Our Founders chose a Republic form of government because it was based on the Rule of Law which gave the people power and freedom and restricted the control of the government. They knew that on the left (Monarchy, Dictatorship, Socialism, Communism,) there would be a majority of government control and on the right (Anarchy) there would be no government (with riots, looting, no personal safety). They also knew that Democracy was mob rule (with few laws). They knew all this because of actual results in history (Kings, Popes, Conquerors, Roman Empire, early-stage French Revolution).
Our Founders understood there are actually only 2 forms of sustainable government: Oligarchy (visible leader with supporters/elitists) or Republic (Rule of Law). Eventually, all non-Republic forms of government become an Oligarchy (e.g. Hitler or Lenin lead a revolution under anarchy and then take control of the government; democracy “mobs” cause havoc and erode the quality of life and some element takes control… usually by force).
