The perpetual Union, 50 independent sovereign states, as it was described initially in the Articles of Confederation. But viewing the political and social landscape today can give pause to any critical observer and lover of liberty. Whether or not we are still a stalwart union could be debated heatedly.
All law in the United States is derived from the authority of the Constitution, some would also argue the Articles of Confederation as well. Precedence does not make law, and if a precedent-setting action was illegal from its inception and is allowed to be carried forth, that only serves to facilitate an institutionalized disregard for the supreme law of the land.
“A government of laws, and not of men,” is how John Adams defined a republic. Regardless of their differing opinions, the Federalists wanting a strong federal government and the Anti-Federalists arguing for a strictly constrained limited federal government; both vehemently opposed a democracy. Laws do not strictly regulate a democracy; democracy is rule by the whims and desires of the majority and does not secure the liberties of all of the people. Democracy was viewed by the founders equally as dangerous to liberty as a monarchy. In this context, it can be understood why those who insist on calling the United States a democracy infuriate to no end those who know it to be a republic.
