The New Republic?
I doubt we the people have the will to elect responsible and benevolent people to office to form a fair impartial government anymore.
Why would we want any other individual or group to have any type of control over our lives or property? Individuals would not need to band together for order or control if everyone respected each other’s lives, liberty and property 100% of the time. Unfortunately, this is not the case with some individuals who seek to take away others’ lives, curtail others’ liberty, or deprive others of property; therefore, governments are established to protect against such usurpations. The individuals organizing governmental control and imposition of order for the new United States of America clearly stated the goals of good government in the Preamble to the contract for this new constitutional republic (their choice of governmental form). They sought balance in government between liberty and order.
