Marc's View: Does democracy have an expiration date?
By Marc Lainhart
As an Independent - Constitutionalist, Veteran, and Professional Psychic, I now have great concern and a deep sadness witnessing this broken two-party system destroy the “UNITED” States of America. Perhaps all that is happening today needs to happen and unfold through chaos, dysfunction, and division. Giving birth to new parties, new ideas, new people, new transformations, new ways of governing, new energy for how to legislate for EVERYONE, and bring people, family, friends, and colleagues back together in a more moderate fashion vs. this extreme left and extreme right agendas that we all are seeing daily.
“A house divided against itself cannot stand” -said Abraham Lincoln.
I have said this in my forecasts, podcasts, articles, and lectures for well over 3+ years now. If this corrupt and broken system does not change direction quickly, grow, evolve, and be in service to “WE THE PEOPLE” through the Rule Of Law, Justice, and transparency, then political violence WILL COME to the shores of America with further separation and division among the people and the parties. A real possibility exists now of civil war, revolution, and secession of states (a.k.a. - A National Divorce). Continued blind party ideology and hate (on both sides) while refusing to work TOGETHER (to hold power) will bring an end to American Democracy as we know it in the next five years. Once Democracy is gone, it’s GONE FOREVER! Our first president, George Washington, reminds us of our independence from England in the first American Revolution and stepping away voluntarily from the power of the presidency and giving back to the people who fought and died for freedom and liberty:
“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” -George Washington - Farewell Address, Saturday, September 17th, 1796.
Now we all watch, wait and pray, hoping that America and “WE THE PEOPLE” move FORWARD...TOGETHER!?! Order out of chaos; this is what all politicians and political parties do worldwide, even at home. History reminds us that until the people come together and say no, no more, this “doom loop” of a two-party system that refuses to work together in modern times will break and collapse sooner rather than later. Does Democracy now have an expiration date? A country without branches of government (Executive, Legislative, Judicial) to guide us, keep us safe and secure, legislation and equal rights for a brighter and peaceful future, or instead viewed by the world as the modern-day Banana Republic and failed state that we have become?
“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.” -Plato.
I hope and believe in “WE THE PEOPLE” as well as our “divine” Constitution to guide us forward and bring us back from the edge in these historical and unprecedented times, or what I first forecasted, podcasted, and lectured about back in 2019 on, “Welcome to Our Roaring 20s” and “The Great Coming Together!” Always stand for what is right, even if you stand alone as “WE, THE PEOPLE,” are now presented with two options: evolve or repeat.”
“Our new Constitution is now established; everything seems to promise it will be durable; but, in this world, nothing is certain except death and taxes,” -Ben Franklin.
God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change
the courage to change the things I can
and the wisdom to know the difference.
—Reinhold Niebuhr, 1892-1971
