Democracy

America’s Founding Fathers proclaimed inalienable rights and accompanying responsibilities in the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Federalist Papers. They sought to bequeath a nation free from tyranny to their posterity, where our people could live in peace. These rights can only exist with our willingness and ability to protect them.

For too long, our Republic has been undermined by politicians who knowingly deceive our people and disregard our will. The Republicans and Democrats have systematically collaborated in an effort to impose unwanted change on our nation. These “Republicrats” have coerced our people by limiting political choice, showing their disregard for the sacrifices of our forefathers. The American Third Position honors their accomplishments by cherishing the Republic the created. In keeping with this tradition, A3P is becoming a major proponent of proportional representation at all levels of government.

Known as the Father of the Constitution, 4th U.S. President James Madison believed that “factionalism is bad, but it can be ameliorated if there are many factions (political parties) instead of just two.” Madison wrote of the “security afforded by a greater variety of parties…In an equal degree does the increased variety of parties comprised within the Union increase this security.”

    We live in a Republic not a Democracy. The word "Democracy" or any form of the word is not found in any of our founding documents.
    This should be called Our Republic or Our Constitutional Republic.

    Yep, what other country would want to accept our view of Democracy? If that's what we're spreading in the Arab nations, I want nothing to do with it. I don't see any signs of Democracy in my part of the country. Like Chris Hedges said it so well: We live in a Corporatocracy. We've become slaves to the well-protected elite. By the way, can someone direct me to a site describing Israel's involvement with 9/11? It's something I've long suspected, but I would really like to read some info on this subject. Thanks.
