@H2O MAN,
I am curious what you think the legislature is in the constitution H2O?

It is a body of representatives who are elected by the states. The states vote for those representatives in a democratic manner. It doesn't "resemble" a representative democracy. It IS one.

@parados,
I am curious as to why you can't accept that our country was set up as and is a constitutional republic period.

And how well do you think Obama and his minions respect the constitution, the flag and the republic for which it stands.

I'm curious as to why you can't accept that our country is both a constitutional republic and a representative democracy.

The two are not mutually exclusive.

I really have to wonder how stupid you people are when you argue that the US is ONLY a constitutional republic. There is a reason why they named one house the House of Representatives.

"Hate speak" no doubt. Not racist, though. He isn't alleging you're stupid because of your ethnic origins, but simply on the basis of your expressed political philosophy.

Interesting... that's exactly how Obama treats his opposition.

@H2O MAN,
"You people" refers to the people making the stupid argument that the US is not a representative democracy.

@parados,

The stupid argument is the one that states that the US is something other than a constitutional republic.

Understood and that makes Obama and his minions guilty of Hate Speak.

@H2O MAN,
I can't decide if you're really this confused, or if you think you're being clever. Either way, you are full of fail.

I mean, you are so full of fail that that the failboat called and wants its gig back.

Nice try, but you yourself just failed at being clever.

Really, man? Really? You decided to go with this instead of "I'm rubber and you're glue" or maybe "sez you!"?

@DrewDad,

I believe you feel that way about every discussion you have ever participated in.
You are special that way... don't ever change.

I suppose you can't be a man because you are human.

Your inability to think is simply amazing squirt.

The US is many things. Being one of those things doesn't mean it can't be another.

The US is 50 states
The US is an area of land
The US is a member of the UN
The US is a democracy as defined by Webster's dictionary and the OED.
The US is 350 million citizens

@Setanta,
Setantta is correct. He knows what the correct Political Philosophy is. I think I read some of it last year. I believe it is called--Musings of a senile pseudo-intellectual.
