Yip I went to School in Scotland in the 60s &70s and we were taught how free and great America was, It really was the envy of the world, Being part of a Republic meant if 1000 people said do this and you said no I'm doing this then you could. you were FREE you could do what you wanted, you are still a republic so where are all your rights. I read a case last year where someone was jailed for not paying income tax and he said its not law, the Judge says everyone pays it so you must. The guy should have said well that's up to them but I'm not and walked out, but somewhere along the line they have convinced you that you are a democracy and not a republic. Even your judges think you are a democracy.

I may be strange but I was taught it was a democratic republic. Went to school in the 80's 90's. It wasn't a sham in the early days when the country was founded. Imagine a population that had very little to no education voting and creating parties solely for personal gain "exactly like special interest groups of today"

America is a Republic,not a Democracy!We are a Nation of Constitutional Laws,The problem is the politicans and judges are legislating and going against the constitution!!A country and it's laws,are only worth anything if they are obeyed.For the last 27 years the Politicans in this country have torn the Constitution apart,you might as well throw it in the garbage,It is only good as long as the people it servse uphold itThe American people have all the power they need to-take out the scum that has created illegial laws in this country.They just have to use it!!!!!!

Yes, it is saddening and maddening at the same time. I'm afraid the American citizen was thrown under the bus decades ago.

If the Democrats running for President had any answers why didn't they do anything already and why isn't Obama "fixing" it now?

Bernie or Hillary will be more of the same thing we have RIGHT NOW. Nothing.

You didnt understand my question it seems? Any case my point is against whoever I responded to. To make a point on bias.

Why do you think it would be a disaster to at least not have a delegate system where all the people decide who is to be President?


Because 'democracy' is nothing more than mob rule.

Basically meaning 51% gets to tell the 49% what to do.

Everyone loves it when they are in the 'majority'. Not so much when they are in the 'minority'.

That's why people we are suppose to be a constitutional republic that basically flips the middle finger to the mob.

And drew a line in the sand, and said 'You shall not pass'.

That goes against what we have devolved in to. Where agenda's get shoved down our throats, and all it takes is a slight majority.
