IMHO,I believe that more people need to understand the differences between these forms of government,including myself...

(People farming)

I see the way government is "executed"..(who?) in this country at the present time,including the opinions out on the street that I am so blessed to witness,..

As being socialist/communist/"collectivist"...

I would like to think that I have an inkling of what was meant to be,when those fellas founded this country way back when.

But I just cannot see it here,now...

So what is it?,look in the damn mirror and be honest with yourself.

I look in the mirror ,and am honest with myself every day,and have a hard time not killing myself to escape the truth.....

Which is????.

The truth is different to every man,but anyway...

Pardon my ranting.

Thanks for the opp. ATS.

Three of the four (Socialism, Communism, Democracy) are socio-economic ideologies that underlie many different forms of government around the world. A republic is a form of government.

The problem with ideologies is that they are developed as intellectual constructs, not as working models for governance. Unfortunately, the actual workings of government never come close to achieving the ideals of the ideology underlying it. Since many of these ideologies have been demonized in propaganda, many folks don't actually know the difference.

The U.S. is a Fascist Corporate government that incorporates communism, socialism, fascism, capitalism, and any other ism you want to throw in there.

The people whom founded the country knew exactly what they were doing. Changing the Phoenix to an Eagle for a symbol for the Corporate Nation.

The phoenix is commonly used throughout history in different countries. It has to do with the Illuminati/Free Masons.

Ben. Franklin was an Esquire for the Crown of England which is owned by the Rothschilds Banking. So that he and most of the founding fathers were in on creating America to enslave the future for a debt that can not be paid.

Some of the founding fathers fought the central banking system (Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, J.F.K.) and well you can see the results.

Thomas Jefferson said, "I fear a central banking system more then a standing Army, for the Army can be defeated."

The Illuminati use a hereditary death and succession way of life, as to pass material wealth onto children. They have been in the game for over 2,000 years. My guess is they go back 5,000 years or so.

Communism is an end product of Socialism - ideally Communism would be world wide (for fair access to resources) - other than that, you're trying to compare apples and oranges. Being a Democratic Republic is not mutually-exclusive to Capitalism.

I would go as far as to say, Communism is the greatest form of Direct Democracy there is - its just never given a decent chance.

I think that people need to look beyond the traditional old political divide. Not everything can be neatly fitted into left or roight or colectivism individualism etc. New ideas are needed. For example it is possible to look at some things as an individualist and other things as a collectivist.

reply to post by once awoken

And other things still as individualistic-collectivism.

People are too binary.

I believe our founding fathers had a libertarian ideal set for the nation. One where government isn't so big, states have more sovereignty and the people have more freedoms. This is what I believe the founding fathers had in mind and is my philosophy on how government should be. Go to the Libertarian Party's website and read more about it, it is very interesting.

Ismologists get rather un nerved when you approach them with questions outside of their specialties.

What the hell is the difference anyways? In the end they all turn into the same thing, controlling. Equality is where its at, and we need to get there already. I say, if we are able to choose a government in the future, we should throw out everything and start from scratch! Make something entirely new!! Instead of voting, we'll draw straws!!
