The Iowa Grassroots Coalition (IAGRC) is a non-partisan group comprised of people from all over Iowa who are working to inspire Americans to restore our republic. IAGRC coordinates and pools resources to help local grassroots organizations achieve their goals. These groups include, but are not limited to, SOAR chapters, 912 Project groups, Tea Party organizations, and other liberty-minded organizations that would like to see our freedoms protected, the three branches of our federal government returned to their intended limited roles, and our Constitution supported and defended.
The American System is not a Democracy.
The American System is a Constitutional Republic.
(Our founding fathers did all they could to make sure America would not turn into a pure democracy.)
A democracy, if you attach meaning to terms, is a system of unlimited majority rule; the classic example is ancient Athens. And the symbol of it is the fate of Socrates, who was put to death legally, because the majority didn’t like what he was saying, although he had initiated no force and had violated no one’s rights.
Democracy, in short, is a form of collectivism, which denies individual rights: the majority can do whatever it wants with no restrictions. In principle, the democratic government is all-powerful. Democracy is a totalitarian manifestation; it is not a form of freedom …
The American system is a constitutionally limited republic, restricted to the protection of individual rights. In such a system, majority rule is applicable only to lesser details, such as the selection of certain personnel. But the majority has no say over the basic principles governing the government. It has no power to ask for or gain the infringement of individual rights.-Leonard Peikoff
