A Pure Republic

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government…”43

The term republic, res publica, signifies the state independently of its form of government.”44

A pure Republic allows the people the power of choice. They may retain their right to choose or waive it for what they believe is profitable or for gain. People change and governments change. It has been said, “All roads lead to Rome”, but if we turn around all roads lead to the Kingdom of God. It is all about which direction you choose to go, which path you choose to take.

“Because strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” Matthew 7:14

The United States is a democracy within the original republic and it has changed as its citizenry changes. Relationships have been altered by choice and consent. The dreams and desires of the people may become a nightmare of despair before those who slumber awake.

The term republic in its pure form comes from the words Libera Res Publica, Free from Things Public.

“Tacitus repeatedly contrasts the res publica under the emperors with the pre-Augustus libera res publica; and in the Germania 37, encountering the disasters which Germans inflicted upon the res publica Romanorum, he distinguishes between the old res publica, which he calls the populus Romanus, and the new res publica, which he calls “Caesar”. The old res publica hardly had the mixed constitution which dreamers assigned it and which actually never can exist, but it was something greater and majestic which lives on as a glorious memory in a mean age.”45

History will repeat itself if we will not learn from it. If you ared not free from things public then you have suscribed to a republic fashioned after the precepts of Caesar rather than a free society.
