DPRK

30 Nov

Stands for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, North Korea’s official name.

Democracy: The Founding Fathers universally rejected democracy and hoped that posterity would never turn the United States into one.  Listen to how often the Democrats, under the leadership of the Kenyan, use that term when describing our form of government.

I wonder if our young military is hearing this truth.  They need not obey unlawful orders, but instead stand up for the principles and cause that so many of their predecessors died for.  This is not the Democratic People’s Republic of the United States.  And never will be!

“The world is weary of statesmen whom democracy has degraded into politicians.” ~ British PM Benjamin Disraeli -1850

Under democracy the individual is subservient to the majority, that is, the collective.

Democracy is a form of collectivism.

Collectivism holds that individuals exist only as a member of a group—whether a race, an economic class, or the State. Individuals per se do not possess rights, but only in their capacity as a member of a group.

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!” ~ Benjamin Franklin

If the goal of the American Revolution was liberty, where is the liberty in Democracy?  It all comes back to what our definition of liberty is.  In today’s America, that remains to be seen.

    Seems like Obama’s military is doing what it can to weed out those who believe in that cause and those time-honored principals.

    A sad time in which to live, it seems. Or maybe a glorious time?

      I choose to think glorious. The chosen time. Can I think of any more meaningful time in human history to be alive? No.

    Janus I agree with your statement…”weed out those who believe in that cause and those time-honored principals”. I also feel this is exactly what is going on.

    I have been reading a book that belonged to my dad, a veteran of the Korean War, called BATTLE FOR KOREA by Robert J. Dvochak and the Associated Press. Near the end of the peace talks approximately 24,000 Chinese and North Korean communist prisoners of war refused to go back to the communist side and asked to stay in South Korea or America. A total of 23 Americans and one British Royal Marine defected to communism.

    The Korean War was a collective effort and very costly in lives and money of many nations but in the end, the decision to live in Liberty or Tyranny came down to individual choices for many. But for the 24,000 Chinese & North Koreans the choice was simple. They lived it, they knew!

    There is something in the hearts and minds of ALL mankind that causes a strong desire to be free. Those kind of people will make the right choices and will stand in defense of it at any cost though for some that decision may be at the last minute!

    I cringe when I hear anyone, especially a danged politician, mention Democracy. I’m reminded of the words attributed to Mr. Benjamin Franklin in answer to a Lady asking him what type of government we have:

    “A Republic madam…if you can keep it.”
