According to our Declaration, Governments are instituted among Men to secure our rights, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. Our Constitution secures our liberties by severely restricting government. Every representative and official with authority over the people swears to support the Constitution, meaning they will enforce these restrictions and secure our liberties.
The undermining of our government is a direct result of our elected officials, and appointed bureaucrats, ignoring their oath to restrict government and secure our liberties — not by the people holding them accountable.
The reality is the opposite of this argument. The undermining of our representative government occurs when the people are prohibited from holding our public servants accountable.
