Do you agree that the US is a constitutional republic or are you stuck on the ignorant notion that it's a democracy?

oh for F*** sake squirt. You guys are so damn stupid. Would you argue an oak can't be a tree simply because it is an oak? Or would you argue it can't be deciduous? Or would you argue that it doesn't have leaves?

The US is a constitutional republic which does NOT mean it isn't a democracy as defined by the dictionary. It is both and more.

Many words can be used to describe the government in the US. Trying to say only one word works shows how simple minded you are.

Day 14

Another day. No news yet. It is beginning to appear the reports of the impending death of the Republic were overblown.

@H2O MAN,
I never said it wasn't one.

Perhaps you should now admit that it is a representative democracy.

@H2O MAN,
Really? Where did I say it wasn't a Republic? If you bothered to read the title of my thread, I quite clearly called it a "republic".

@parados,
I said you were stupid for refusing to admit it is a democracy.

SO..
If I say "that is a tree"
And you say
"That isn't a tree it is an oak"

And I say..
"Of course it's a tree. You are stupid for saying it isn't one.

No where would I have said it isn't an oak. I only pointed out you were stupid for demanding we ONLY call it an oak.

Only the stupid and the ignorant would claim the US is a democracy... you are proving to be a strange mix of both.

@H2O MAN,
At least he has a sound comprehension of the rules of English grammar. And then politics. And really every area in which you fall short, of which there are many.

Except, you know, water. But that's pretty important. I mean we're talkin' 75% of the planet.

***************************************************************************Parados is wrong--

But he won't admit it, H2O. He says it is both and "more" "More" what? More totalitarian? More Utopian?

Parados evidently cannot read, H20

Here is the quote from Wikipedia. Parados is, again, quite mistaken.

, a representative democracy may or may not be a constitutional republic. For example, "the United States relies on representative democracy, but [its] system of government is much more complex than that. [It is] not a simple representative democracy, but a constitutional republic in which majority rule is tempered by minority rights protected by law."[5].

You got that Paradox?---It is not a simple representative democracy but a constitutional republic in which majority rule is tempered by minority rights protected by law.

and

A constitutional republic is a state where the head of state and other officials are elected as representatives of the people, and must govern according to existing constitutional law that limits the government's power over citizens.

In a constitutional republic, executive, legislative, and judicial powers are separated into distinct branches and the will of the majority of the population is tempered by protections for individual rights so that no individual or group has absolute power.

The fact that a constitution exists that limits the government's power makes the state constitutional. The head(s) of state and other officials are chosen by election, rather than inheriting their positions, and that their decisions are subject to judicial review.
**********************************************************************

Did you fall asleep in your Political Science Course, Parados?

The US does happen to be both a representative democracy and a constitutional republic. If I am wrong which do you think the US isn't?

DAY 15

Another day. Of course the Republic could end today with the roll of an egg on the lawn of the White House.

The US is a constitutional republic that currently resembles what you are calling a representative democracy.
The US needs to get back to it's constitutional republic roots.
