Democracy, We Should Be A Republic

People say this nation is a democracy. It is this and worse. A few people hold power over the others. They strike away the rights of the people. Our corporations and banks return to the old methods of wage slavery as was done by the very ones we rebelled against during the War for Independence.

What this nation began as was a Republic where all had rights, which could never be hindered or taken away by the Articles of the Constitution. Banks were regulated by how they treated their depositors and how they treated the people having loans. Corporations didn’t exist which made family businesses thrive and allowed for a real free market economy.

The words in the Pledge of Allegiance are there for a purpose to make us remember we are a Republic and not a democracy of hierarchies where others rule over us. We do not pledge to a president, congress or senate. {“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”} We pledge to our fellow citizens to support each other not to support a government or ideals of a ruler. This is the very reason the first Ten Amendments are crucial to the country’s survival. They were meant for all people no matter the race, creed or background. All of the rest were added to simply gain control or profit from the people.

 

In The Spotlight – Slaying Isidore’s Dragons

I am proud to present the talented author C. Kennedy and his newest release Slaying Isidore’s Dragons on my blog today. His first book Omorphi is listed under my reviewed books. I know this book will be another of his hits. He is an author which writes with such compassion and feeling the characters leap from the pages. The methods in which he writes conveys the actions and events as if seeing them through the character’s eyes. His handling of delicate subject matter is outstanding. Now on to the good stuff…

Declan and Isidore meet at the beginning of their senior year at a private academy in the United States. Declan is immediately smitten with Isidore and becomes his knight in shining armor. Isidore wants to keep what is left of his sanity and needs Declan’s love to do it. One is beaten, one is drugged, one is nearly raped, one has been raped. They are harassed by professors and police, and have fights at school, but none of it compares to running for their lives. When the headmaster’s popular son attempts suicide and someone tries to assassinate Declan’s mother, they are thrown headlong into chaos, betrayal, conspiracy, allegations of sexual coercion, even murder.

About Cody Kennedy

Raised on the mean streets and back lots of Hollywood by a Yoda-look-alike grandfather, Cody doesn’t conform, doesn’t fit in, is epic awkward, and lives to perfect a deep-seated oppositional defiance disorder. In a constant state of fascination with the trivial, Cody contemplates such weighty questions as If time and space are curved, then where do all the straight people come from? When not writing, Cody can be found taming waves on western shores, pondering the nutritional value of sunsets, appreciating the much maligned dandelion, unhooking guide ropes from stanchions, and marveling at all things ordinary.
