Our system of government was never intended to be a democracy. Although many believe that we live in a democracy, they have never been asked to vote on the decisions made by said government. Yet the voters believe that they are empowered just the same. We are not. We elect representatives. They supposedly make our laws which are supposed to be coherent with the Constitution. Sadly, most don't have any idea of what the Constitution says. And more than likely they are being bribed.
Protecting Citizens, Minorities included, is the job of the Sheriff
Your County Sheriff has the final say so in "law enforcement". See The Power of the Sheriff. The Sheriff is the most powerful person you know. He is even more powerful than the President of the United States and Federal alphabet agencies, because your County Sheriff is elected by the voters in Your County.
Except immigration, U.S. Constitution does NOT discuss Immigration, both legal and illegal are federal issues. The feds have a right and responsibility to do what is necessary for the safety of American citizens, even if they have to go somewhere to do it. Any where they would go to carry out federal law would be in some state. The feds should not interfere with a Constitutional state law.
In the following Sheriff scenario the word "minority" is NOT used. That includes sex preference, color or any other minority the "Left/Deep State" wants to divide and conquer.
To demonstrate the difference between a Republic and a Democracy. Consider this Old West scenario. A lynch mob in a democracy 35 horseback riders chase one lone gunman. They catch him and they vote 35 to 1 to hang him. Democracy has triumphed and there's one less gunman to contend with now. Now, consider the same scenario in a Republic. The 35 horseback riders catch the gunmen and vote 35 to 1 to hang him. But this time the sheriff arrives and he says you can't Hang him he's got his right to a fair trial. So they take the gunmen back to town. A jury of his peers is selected and they hear the evidence and the defense and they decide if he shall hang. Does the jury even decide by majority rule? No it has to be unanimous or he goes free!
Moral of the story; the application of the law is not subject to majority rule in a Republic. This is the essence of a Republic.
Many Americans would be surprised to learn that the word Democracy does not appear in the Declaration of Independence or the US Constitution nor does it appear in any of the Constitutions of the 50 states.
The founders did everything they could to keep us from having a Democracy.
Federal Grand Juries - The Fourth Branch of Govt?
The Grand Jury is a power the People reserved unto themselves at the founding of this nation to serve as the fourth and ultimate balance of power against government abuse. It can be a powerful tool to Defend Rural America, provided the People are educated as to its true purpose and reclaim its powers unto themselves.
Here is the wording of the Fifth Amendment.
It protects the People in two ways. First, in the case of capital or otherwise infamous crimes, government cannot prosecute an individual without the People’s consent, in the form of Jurors. The decision to not indict is an absolute protection against government abuse, and cannot be overturned even by the President, Congress, or the Supreme Court.
Second, the Grand Jury is empowered to judge government itself, with the power to investigate and indict, within its jurisdiction, judges, district attorneys, sheriffs, county supervisors, state attorney generals, all other government agents, and even the President of the United States.
Grand Juries were given the tools to conduct investigations with powers equal to those of government: subpoena witnesses and documents; conduct questioning; even arrest, fine, or imprison anyone that refused to appear. To insure they would be free to fulfill this purpose without reprisal, jurors are immune from prosecution for their jury activities.
Grand Jury findings can be presented to the public as information (presentments), or as accusations for subsequent prosecution (indictments).
Interestingly, the Grand Jury clause is included with seemingly unrelated protections: from double jeopardy, forced self-incrimination, lack of due process, or property takings without just compensation. However, it is this placement that makes the purpose of Grand Juries all the clearer. They are there as a mechanism to protect all the other rights and protections of the People.
Through its powers of “presentments” and “indictments” or “non-indictments,” the Grand Jury provides the most fundamental balance of power: the Power of the People to judge all three branches of government. The Grand Jury is not a branch of government. It stands on its own.
Here is the wording of the Sixth Amendment.
It further protects the People by denying government the ability to convict. Taken in conjunction with the Fifth Amendment, it is seen the entire process for determining guilt or innocence lies with the People, not government.
