What form of government does the US have?

The United States government is a Republic, or more specifically, a federal constitutional republic.


The following is what the founding fathers wrote in the US Constitution and believed:

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.

Thomas Jefferson said, "A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine."
Thomas Jefferson, March 11, 1790: "The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind."

Alexander Hamilton, in debate, said: "Real liberty is neither found in despotism or the extremes of democracy, but in moderate government."

Alexander Hamilton, in Senate: "It has been observed that a pure democracy, if it were practicable, would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies, in which the people themselves deliberated, never possessed one feature of good government. Their very character was tyranny: their figure deformity."

John Adams, in a letter to John Taylor, wrote: "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide."

James Madison said: "...democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths."


Reduced to its essence the United States is a federal republic, a federation of states with a republican form of government, i.e., a representative democracy, where the citizens elect their representatives for fixed terms of office.

The Constitution of the United States, Article IV, § 4 provides: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government...." The requirement that the Constitution contain a provision guaranteeing a republican form of government seems to have been driven by Madison. Thus, it is appropriate to turn to his definition of a republican form of government in The Federalist Papers, no. 39, 250--53 (January 16, 1788). There, he writes that "we may define a republic to be, or at least may bestow that name on, a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people; and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure, for a limited period, or during good behaviour."

A familiar contrast is often made between a republican and a democratic form of government based on the latter's being a direct wielding of power by the people with unrestricted majority rule, and the former's being a government by representatives elected by the people with restrictions on the power of the majority. It should be noted that the requirement of restrictions on the power of the majority are not contained in Madison's definition. The restrictions on the power of the majority are, instead, contained in the Bill of Rights. Thus, whichever definition one adopts, the United Stated has a republican form of government.



      “{WE THE PEOPLE}” must put America First, to restore our Christian Constitutional Republic.  This can only be done when the true churches and ministries of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ REPENT and turn from their wicked ways, so Almighty God(The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost), can hear from heaven; and “HEAL OUR LAND”: II CHRONICLES 7 : 14(KJV).  Tragically this is not happening.  Christian you must be in the perfect will of Almighty God(The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost), Which art in heaven; so He can “{SAVE}” America!
                                           ENEMY IDENTIFICATION
   Domestic enemies, traitors to the Constitution, and Bill Of Rights, are everywhere: they are in churches, communities, government, media, schools, and must be deported to Red China, Cuba, etc.
   That supports the New World Order, and does not insist on the withdrawal of These United State Of America from the United Nations.
   That says our Republic(ARTICLE IV, Section 4 Constitution Of These United States Of America), is a Democracy(Fledgling Democracy, Democratic Freedom, Democratic Process, Great Democracy,  Jeffersonian Democracy, Liberal Democracy,  Representative Democracy, Republican Democracy, Secular Democracy, Unique Democracy and so forth); which are some of the buzz words for domestic enemies traitors to the Constitution and Bill Of Rights).
   That will not repeal the Federal Reserve.
   That attacks American Patriots.
   That attacks the Constitution, and Bill Of Rights(MILITIA necessary to the security of a  Free State).  The greatest threat to America comes from domestic enemies the “do not want to hear it.   Chaplaincies, Churches, and Ministries of  our  Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and Patriot Organizations: can not be Incorporated; nor can they be Non-profit 501© 3. {{{Christians “Jumping Ship”, breaking promises, and even threatening Civil Action against  anointed preachers of the saving Gospel!}}}
PATRIOT PASTOR Thomas Gilbert Cole(Chaplain Tom), Army Brat, Veteran Of Veterans, Father Of Veterans, Retired Law Enforcement, Militia Chaplain: No true Militia would target Police Officers.  All fallen Law Enforcement Officers families are in our daily prayers.  All Chaplaincies, Churches, and Ministries are in The Army Of Our Lord And Saviour Jesus Christ.  American Christians must return to the pews of Patriot Pastors!!!!!!!

                                     SHOCKED,  DISMAYED, DISHEARTENED!
   I am a minister of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  This ministry is based on honesty, and truth, the Holy Bible.  Our word is a covenant, a bond if you will.  This minister of the Gospel of Grace, has faithfully served Almighty God(The Father, and The Holy Ghost), Which art in  Heaven for many years; Praise His Name.  “ONLY ONE LIFE, TWILL SOON BE PAST, ONLY WHAT IS DONE FOR CHRIST JESUS WILL LAST!”  Philippians 1:21.  This ministry is solidly based in TRUTH(CHRIST JESUS IS THE TRUTH!), and we lie not.
   Unbelievable, that some Christians are still “JUMPING SHIP” see Jonah, and even threatening other Christians !  To be rejected by the world hurts deeply, but to be rejected by Christians is unbearable.  This preacher solidly stands in all ministries of Christ Jesus the Redeemer of all mankind.  And, Prays and works daily for the peaceful restoration of our Christian Constitutional Republic. 
A bond servant:
Chaplain of Chaplains(Servant of Servants) Thomas Gilbert Cole(Chaplain Tom)
American Constitutional Militias, (The Original) Black Robed Regiments(Chuck Baldwin), Committees Of Correspondence/Safety, Patriotic Tea Parties, Pennsylvania Chaplains Corps,  Pennsylvania Oath Keepers, Sheriff Brigades, Sons Of Liberty Riders,  Veteran Defenders, etc. Chaplain Thomas Gilbert Cole(Chaplain Tom): Patriot Pastor.  “Virtue(Moral Excellence), Liberty(Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is the only author of Freedom), and Independence(Get The US out of the UN)”!!!!!!! Earnestly pray that Almighty God  will “{SAVE}” America!!!!!!!
