It was this quote:
Why does everyone keep referring to the American Government as a democracy?
that made we wonder what your government is. You talk about votes, one man one vote if I recall correctly. How can you say your a republic and not a democracy. We have a one man one vote principal overhere as well, but we are a constitutional monarchy. In my opinion the abstract level of republic and democracy are non-compatible. First you decide whether the common man has a say ( demos = people) then you choose the structure on how you want to run your nation, be it king or president.
I'm sorry but this has lowered to the silly level and doesn't deserve spending time on. You read my post and I know you understood what it meant.
