Full Description and Blog post at: https://samueladamsreturns.net/episode-314-republicanism-not-republicans/
Republicanism is not the same as or even truly represented by Republicans. Based on what has and is occurring in the Republican Party, especially in Ohio and several other swing states, the truth, fact and understanding of republicanism is nonexistent.
The Constitution of these United States is for a republic operating within the context of republicanism. Although the ‘rule of law’ is a key component of republicanism it has been sadly ‘perverted’ as Bastiat observed in the opening in his treatise, ‘The Law’:
‘The law perverted! The law—and, in its wake, all the collective forces of the nation—the law, I say, not only diverted from its proper direction, but made to pursue one entirely contrary! The law become the tool of every kind of avarice, instead of being its check! The law guilty of that very iniquity which it was its mission to punish! Truly, this is a serious fact, if it exists, and one to which I feel bound to call the attention of my fellow citizens.’
Therefore, we see the left, the American Marxists, take over the bureaucracies, political parties and even elected offices by using ‘The Law.’ Thereby perverting the republicanism of our founding.
