Subject: SLS: Many Christian Leaders Declare Constitution Crisis (fwd)

The population of federal citizens who
inhabit the several states are, indeed,
a democracy, because they owe their 
political allegiance to the federal zone,
which is not protected by the Guarantee Clause.

That zone is a legislative democracy.
The guarantees of the U.S. Constitution
extend to that zone, ONLY as Congress
makes those guarantees applicable, 
by statutes.  See Hooven & Allison v. Evatt.

The population of state Citizens who 
inhabit the several states are NOT
a democracy, because the supreme Law
guarantees to them a Republican Form
of Government, not a democracy.

So, when you hear "democracy," get out your
voter registration affidavits, and see if
you verified, under penalty of perjury,
that you are a federal citizen.

You might want to do something about that.
I did, and I am very happy that I did.

Under the Tenth Amendment, you enjoy the
Right of Election -- to choose which of
these two classes of citizenship to join:
the one, the other, both, or neither.

Democracies can outlaw blonde hair;
in a Republic, blondes have more fun.
