Most of you probably know that America is not a democracy, but a Republic. But have you ever considered what makes America not just a republic, but a Constitutional Republic?

The difference between a democracy and a republic is simple. In democracies, the people vote for legislation; in a republic, they elect representatives to exercise their powers for them. In a constitutional republic, those representatives are bound to a document that both proscribes and limits their power. This is the structure that has made the United States the most powerful, influential, and stable nation the world has seen. But have you considered not just what makes us a republic, but at what point would you say that America has devolved from a constitutional republic into a banana republic, or even worse, an oligarchy?

Today’s show is a little different. I recently attended The Moment of Truth Summit, where, among other things, evidence was provided about the state of the election systems in America. I was so struck by what I had seen and heard, that I wanted to pass it along to you along with some of my thoughts, both what I saw and what I thought about the presentations.
