America isn't a democracy; it's a republic

Psalm 14:1 says that the fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” The politicians and judges of this land have said, “There are no voters.” They're wrong! America isn't a democracy. It's a republic. The voters elect representatives to go in our place and vote for what the people want to become law. This is no longer happening. Term limits are needed for all public offices, including judges.

Common sense is gone. Government rules are being made that affect us but are no longer made by us — light bulbs, drainage water, health care, electricity (many coal-fired electricity plants are closing soon because of EPA rules), tax monies raised and given to foreigners who hate America or companies like GE are given huge tax breaks just because they have a friend in the government. Corruption is rampant.

If we don't stand up and vote for our country in November, this country won't be ours past this next election.
