In a republic this rule ought to be observed: that the majority should not have the predominant power.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Syntax, my lad. It has been restored to the highest place in the republic.
I have always considered it as treason against the great republic of human nature, to make any man's virtues the means of deceiving him.
Obama might think of himself as one, but he is not a dictator. We are not a banana republic yet. This is not an authoritarian form of government. This is a constitutional republic, and the president doesn't allow or disallow. The president can't buy or purchase.
I have lived in countries that were coming out of conflict: Ireland, South Africa, the Czech republic. People there are overflowing with energy.
The safety of the republic being the supreme law, and Texas having offered us the key to the safety of our country from all foreign intrigues and diplomacy, I say accept the key... and bolt the door at once.
We must not allow the liberals to move us away from the conservative values of the American past which sustain our present and shall secure our future. As for me and my family, we will serve God, we will serve this constitutional republic, we will serve America.
Conservatives understand that the power that binds our republic together is fierce independence held high on the shoulders of compassion.
Behold a republic standing erect while empires all around are bowed beneath the weight of their own armaments - a republic whose flag is loved while other flags are only feared.

The republic I fell in love with, the republic I risked my life to defend, the values I hold dear, the integrity that we all share - these do not know prejudice and they do not accept partiality.
In a republic, that paradise of debility, the politician is a petty tyrant who obeys the laws.
