WHY A REPUBLIC NEEDS AT LEAST 2 POLITICAL PARTIES
By Janine Morgan
THE UNITED STATES IS A CONSTITUTIONAL FEDERAL REPUBLIC (not a democracy)
A republic is a form of government in which the entire population rules, not just the majority.
We are a
CONSTITUTIONAL FEDERAL REPUBLIC
“Constitutional” refers to the fact that government in the United States is based on a Constitution which is the Supreme Law of the United States.
The Constitution not only provides the framework for how the federal and state governments are structured, but also places significant limits on their powers.
“Federal” means that there is both a national government and governments of the 50 states.
A “Republic” is a form of government in which the people hold power, but elect representatives to exercise that power.
Typically, a form of government in which only the majority rules.
Our constitution only mentions a Republican form of government.
UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION
Article IV Section 4
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."
In The Federalist Papers No. 10 (1787), James Madison defends the United States' Republican form of government.
In summary, by the United States having more than one party, it provides for a way to provide accountability.
A Uniparty cancels that system of checks and balances and needs to be exposed at all costs.
If not, we are likely to wake up one day and find ourselves in a full blown oligarchy.
