MMmmmm.. okydoky then.
We are actually a Constitutional Republic, if you want to get technical, but with bases all over the World, world wide cultural power, and economic
power, it is safe to say America does not function in the form of a "typical" Republic should. That is to say, our dealing are outside of our own
Union members, and highly Global with a concentrated consolidated Federal Government which currently unconstitutionally trumps State rights.
Yes, by TECHNICAL definition the United States is an EMPIRE not a Republic.
Seeing as you don't know what form of Government we have anyways, I doubt you even know what an Empire is?
a group of nations or peoples ruled over by an emperor, empress, or other powerful sovereign or government: usually a territory of greater extent
than a kingdom, as the former British Empire, French Empire, Russian Empire, Byzantine Empire, or Roman Empire.
A group of Nations (states, which have Constitutions *gasp who knew!*, Common Wealths *not all states are states*, territories, and by proxy
autonomous nations around the World..) which are Governed by a powerful sovereign or government
Which means any form of highly consolidated
power within a "federalized" Government, IE, the US Government, which rules over the Free States and Common Wealths, Territories and all her
Peoples.. Usually of greater extent then that of a Kingdom (which is a Nation, and a Country, where as the US is just a Country, and not a Nation,
though we could have Nations within the Country like the UK has 4 Nations and 4 countries under one country and Crown..) which we are rather large in
size and constitute many different Countries (defined as political boundary, ie, a State or Common Wealth) so it's safe to say the US is a "form
of" Empire. Just like we are a "form of" Republic and a "form of" indirect Democracy.
As for the rest of your highly uneducated, bigoted, idiotic dribble all I can ask is "why" does it matter I am a Mason, as I have said nothing even
regarding being a Mason in my post?
Then again, from your lack of scholarly understanding I don't expect much else..
Get an edykation.
