The Republican Form of Government
Republic: government of, by and for indivisible Civic Reasoning Sovereign Citizens with Common Sense who represent the law (The Will of the People), follow the money and reconcile life, environment, and Common Cents with each other. Thomas Jefferson: "The republican is the only form of government which is not eternally at open or secret war with the rights of mankind." Sovereign citizens in nations with The Republican Form of Government have noble characteristics and unalienable rights described in the Declaration of Independence and majestic missions set forth in Preambles of Constitutions for State Government and United States Government. Free and indivisible sovereign citizens represent government and demonstrate complementary standards of felicity-based interdependent thinking for the stewardship of personal + professional + public matters, protection of all children, quality of the environment, and common defense of each other. In a Republic, "Reason Makes Right" as sovereign citizens vote and act for the good of the whole; and all are bonded with faith, hope, and love as indivisible citizens reconcile stewardship of all public money. Reconciled stewardship of public money is taxation with representation. Thomas Jefferson: "I think it important to see the finances of the Union as clear and intelligible so that every citizen of any mind is able to understand them." Thomas Jefferson: "A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government and it is necessary to close the circle of our felicities." Forrest McDonald: "It can be maintained that in setting aside every political writer from Plato to Montesquieu, Madison was, in these two essays, being more than a little presumptuous, even arrogant. But in truth, because the Framers had devised a 'novus ordo seclorum', they had rendered all previous political vocabulary obsolete as it pertained to the government of the United States. That government defied categorization by any existing nomenclature: it was not a monarchy, nor an aristocracy, nor a democracy, neither was it a mixed form of government, nor yet a confederated republic. It was what it was, and if Madison was presumptuous in appropriating the word 'republic' to describe it, he was also a prophet, for thenceforth 'republic' would mean precisely what Madison said it meant." Henry Steele Commager: "The United States Constitution is the greatest monument to political science in the history of literature." The United States Constitution: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government." In a Republic, indivisible Civic Reasoning Sovereign Citizens count themselves.
