Global Democracy Promotion Act

Official Title

To prohibit the application of certain restrictive eligibility requirements to foreign nongovernmental organizations with respect to the provision of assistance under part I of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961.


Global Democracy Promotion Act - States that, with respect to eligibility for assistance under part I of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, foreign nongovernmental organizations shall not be ineligible for such assistance solely on the basis of health or medical services provided by such organizations with non-U.S. government funds if such services do not violate the laws of the country in which they are being provided and would not violate U.S. federal law if provided in the United States. Declares in addition that foreign nongovernmental organizations shall not be subject to requirements relating to the use of non-U.S. government funds for advocacy and lobbying activities other than those that apply to U.S. nongovernmental organizations receiving assistance under part I of such Act.
    Did you know: The words Democracy, Democratic and Democrat are not mentioned anywhere in the US Constitution or any of the founding documents but the word Republican is. Note the first part of the sentence in Article IV Section 4 of the Constitution. "Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence." The Liberals have been Indoctrinating us for many years by telling us we are a Democracy. No, we are a Constitutional Republic. Note in the Pledge of Allegiance "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands". Also Benjamin Franklin when asked what form of Government do we have he replied, "A Republic if you can keep it".
