In a Democracy, the majority rules. If the
majority decided they wanted your bike, they could take it.
In a Republic, your bike is your property and you do not owe it to anyone. It cannot be taken against your will, by law.
America is a Constitutional Republic.
Therefore, the Constitution is the law b which we are supposed to be protected.
In a Republic, the individual is protected
FROM the majority, by Constitutional law.
A Constitutional Republic is what we were given. It is up to us to keep it.
