Democratic Republic or Constitutional Republic https://www.utahsrepublic.org/democratic-republic-or-constitutional-republic/ https://www.utahsrepublic.org/democratic-republic-or-constitutional-republic/#comments Mon, 28 Oct 2013 10:36:32 +0000 http://www.utahsrepublic.org/?p=1853 In the past I’ve had a couple of email or site discussions with people on the difference between these terms.

To me, a Constitutional Republic means that we are a republic with a written constitution thus making the document the supreme law of the land. A […]

Hilarious Videos from the DNC https://www.utahsrepublic.org/hilarious-videos-from-the-dnc/ https://www.utahsrepublic.org/hilarious-videos-from-the-dnc/#comments Fri, 07 Sep 2012 05:26:55 +0000 http://www.utahsrepublic.org/?p=1840 These videos were all on TheBlaze.com but I thought I’d aggregate them here. Peter Schiff went to the Democratic National Convention and asked some attendees about what they thought of banning corporate profits altogether. It’s not like everyone there would support this position, but these people are funny. Jon Stewart (somewhat left of center) did […]

Black List and State Surveillance https://www.utahsrepublic.org/black-list-and-state-surveillance/ Sat, 11 Aug 2012 22:17:29 +0000 http://www.utahsrepublic.org/?p=1823 As a kid I read a couple Tom Clancy novels because they were really intense action thrillers. Then I started avoiding them because of the language in them. However, I recently decided to read Brad Thor’s new book Black List because it combines real surveillance-state stuff with a fiction story. The author’s note before the […]
