Republic vs Democracy

Our system of government was never intended to be a democracy. Although many believe that we live in one, they have never been asked to vote on the decisions made by said government. Yet they believe that they are empowered just the same. We are not.

Democracy is a fitting term for Americans these days. It applies to a concurred people. America wasn't concurred by an army with guns. It was concurred by an army of pencil pushers and bankers. And that is also why we have to bring Democracy to other countries. The parasite thieves are not satisfied with the power and wealth they have stolen from people so far. They want it all, and the power to make everyone do as they say.

"When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser." ~ Socrates Consider the following pattern: Someone posts a political video here on YouTube that is pro-right in nature. Then the leftists post comments that deny its' truthfulness without bothering to provide an explanation for how/why it isn't factually accurate; but they do include plenty of name calling directed at both the video and its' producer. And it doesn't stop there. If anyone dares to reply to a leftist's comment in a way that indicates agreement with the video and/or asks for a logical, fact-based argument for how/why the video is erroneous the leftists respond by calling them names as well. The above quote from Socrates explains why this pattern exists.

Democracy is unproductive Progress is weakened by constant bickering between ideologies

Philly Studmuffin you are a complete idiot. The description you give of Nazis is nothing like the 'lunatic right wing' in this country. Since when does the 'tea party' want 'corporations and government to join'? The whole movement is about limiting government and getting them out of corporations way. Therefore the only actual argument you made in your retarded yet long comment is completely ridiculous. About the rest of the video, can you explain how it doesnt make sense or are you just going to say it was full of 'right wing asenine arguments' when in fact it made total logical sense. Lets hear your logical facts to refute their claims. Oh wait, you disabled replies to your comment because youre too stupid to defend your stupidly biased opinions. This country was created to be a democratic republic for very logical reasons and idiots like you have given more and more power to government and we're on our way to ruin just like Rome.

If anyone ever says "America is a Democracy", disagree with them. It isn't. Or, more properly, it isn't SUPPOSED to be. The more it becomes a Democracy, the less it is what it was designed to be, which is a Republic. But what's the difference? A Republic limits the power of government to promote liberty of the people, through a body of law that is not subject to the whims of the majority. Attempts by the corrupt or the power-hungry to upset this system in favor of a more "majority rules" type of government in actuality is creating a transitional stage towards an oligarchy. The same is true of those who want to "do away with" government, because nature abhors a vacuum, and what will move in is invariably, once again, an oligarchy. This video explains each form and how they mutate, and why all that truly exists are oligarchies and republics as durable states, and why we want one and not the other. We have a Republic...if we can keep it.

This video was produced by right-wing charlatans. Nazism and fascism are left wing? On what planet? Any and all credibility in this video was out the window and removed from reality during the first 2 minutes. This is nothing more than lunatic Tea Party ideologies and exemplifies their ridiculous and imaginary historical explanation of lies. Fascism (the Nazis were fascist) is a joining of corporations and government, without consequence, accountability, or responsibility. The German people attempted to drag the factory owners and the corporate executives out into the street to lynch them after World War II (because the people finally realized the oligarchy and the religiously mind poisoned allowed the destruction of their country). A few remaining police and/or MPs saved some of their radical, sorry butt's from being hung or shot but many were rightfully destroyed (but not enough). Only low-grade, sheep-like imbeciles would fall for this sorry, idiotic, right wing film and it's asinine explanations. This is a warped, imaginary history that sounds like something Sara Palin, Michele Bachmann, Paul Ryan or other dishonest financial charlatans would promote to keep people stupid. Notice how these same charlatans meld their nonsense with religious mind poison to promote the ultimate but imaginary master/slave relationship and archaic blood sacrifices? It's complete bullshit designed to herd sheep that welcome wishful thinking gibberish. Here's a much easier way to explain today's oligarchy, fascist nonsense: Play the game of Monopoly with 3 other friends, but start out with these simple but factual rules: Player 1 (representing the oligarchy) gets all the property and 90% of the money, Player 2 (representing the charlatan politicians -- the oligarchy's minions) gets the railroads and the remaining 10% of the money. Player 3 (representing the upper middle class and religious charlatans -- the top 2%) gets the utilities but no money. You (representing the working class, the poor and everyone else) get nothing. See how long it takes for player 1 to win the game!
