Our American Republic By Mal Partisan

This video of Our American Republic will discuss the structure of democracies as perceived by the founders and Greek philosophers. The United States of America is a federation of independent states and the Federal Government along with our States all operating as republics. In the present date, our understanding of democracy as a form of government may not accurately reflect the definition of the term as it was originally conceived. And, it was the effects on freedom from democracies (according to their original definition) that the authors of the Constitution feared. The founders wanted to ensure the government of the United States was NOT a democracy; so lets look find out why.

The web-series "Our American Republic: A Constitutional Primer" is designed to provide Constitutional details glossed over by history books, politicians and the media. These videos are not political stump speeches; and, they will not address current political figures, parties, or candidates. They will be provided only as thought exercises for viewers to discuss their perspectives and generate a civil political dialog from those perspectives.
