Difference Between a Republic and a Democracy (And why we have an Electoral College)

By Gunner Steele

People are confused by the Electoral College because they have confused the United States with a democracy. The United States is not a democracy and our founders loathed the concept of democracy.

On the contrary, the United States is a Constitutional Republic, and this form of government is specifically guaranteed to our country in the Constitution itself (in Article 4 Section 4). Unfortunately, most public education systems do not adequately explain the difference between a democracy and a republic and fraudulently teach that a democracy is the best form of government and that the USA is a democracy. But this is not true.

In a true and direct democracy, the majority vote on any subject wins. Therefore, if the majority votes that you should be killed, then so be it! 51% can rule everything. That is direct democracy. Thomas Jefferson famously stated, "Democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%."

A true Republic, on the other hand, votes for representatives who then represent the interest of the people. A system of checks and balances is implemented to prevent power from being concentrated in one branch or area of the government.

And voting is also representative, to ensure that large population areas do not have power or control over the rest of the country based on their population alone.

Remember, our founders did not believe in strong, centralized power. They believed in giving the power to the people to govern themselves with as little government intervention as possible. This is what creates FREEDOM and PROSPERITY. Think how far we've come as a nation and culture AWAY from this belief system!

Additionally, it is important to note that the 50 states in the United States must all be FREE and INDEPENDENT governments not ruled by or affected by the general population of the rest of the country. This means the President of the United States (representing the federal government), may not rule over the Governor of a sovereign state on matters not specifically listed in the Constitution.

In a direct democracy, this wouldn’t matter. Any large city or population center could rule the rest of the country just by virtue of their population. For example, Los Angeles County has a greater population than 43 out of the 50 states in America! In a direct democracy, that one population center could dictate the lives of the rest of the country!

To prevent that, our Founders established a Republic, not a democracy, they guaranteed that form of Government in our Constitution, and created the Electoral College which is a system of representative voting, to ensure that no singular state or population center could disproportionately affect the rest of the country based on population. This is why the popular vote winner doesn’t necessarily win the Presidency and SHOULDN’T win it.

Europeans, liberals, leftists, homos, democrats, RINOs, wussies, pansies, the vaccinated, and the ignorant media-controlled sheeple who believe that democracies are the best can’t wrap their heads around the superiority of a Republic and the destructive nature of a democracy. But the Founding Fathers of America were very wise in their method of establishing our country, and the proof and evidence is on display for all the world to see, for over 240 years!
