That's because our politicians, talking heads and teachers have been allowed to get away with calling it a Democracy for so long without being corrected, that most people now believe it *is* or *was* a Democracy and should become a true *Democracy*.

What they fail to realize is that if was a Democracy, blacks would have never gotten rights, women wouldn't vote, etc. It was the REPUBLIC that allowed those positive changes!

Actually no, I'm saying they are both killers. I sure am not making any one to be better than the other.

I suppose that depends on who you ask. The are told how many children they can have and forced abortions are REAL...they are not allowed to speak without fear of reprisal against the government.... they are STILL a Totalitarian society....

They do get to make a lil money now but from what I have been reading that might be about to change....


Yes, that's exactly right. They may be playing around with a bit of Capitalist production, but they still have a bad record on human rights, and the Internet filtering is something Barack would be jealous of. It is known as The Great Firewall of China.

The DNC has accounts and payments through most every banks that's been attacked and Soros does business with entities who have accounts in those same banks. Both would be shooting themselves in the foot and Soros' fortune would've rapidly declined by now.

Okay, let me rephrase. The OWS crowd is saying, "I want to live with John Wayne Gacy, because he'll give me a lollypop. He promised me a lollypop!" Sorry for my error.

If you deny anyone with a pulse their rights, you do not have a democracy to begin with.

The fact that one of it's original attempts was to fix class struggles. It didn't work, but some of it is worth trying to implement in a democracy, as others have pointed out, it already is implemented.


So you haven't read Marx...Just listened to communist propaganda and it's all good...

My parents lived it. I have read the Communist Manifesto, I understand it. I'll take the experience of my parents in Cuba and the words of Marx himself before I yield to your lack of understanding as you defend a system while being comfortable in the United States, where you can pursue academic political theory that ignores history and focuses on blind emotional responses.

...only with a Constitution in place to protect against it. That is, until the majority rules to abolish said Constitution.

Fair enough. However, wanting something that's been proven MUCH WORSE is asinine and dangerous, and should be stopped at ANY cost. Period. And, while I still have it, I'll stand by that Constitutionally protected opinion.

Actually this whole thing started with Thestargateisreal saying ther are some appealing things about communism. No one has actually called for it to replace the representative government in place.

The irony is that some of those appealing things are already part of the current system.

No, that's not a democratic way of thinking. It doesn't matter if the constitution protects it, it's not one of the ideas that democracy stands for. The men that allowed that bit in, wanted to protect their wallets. Which is why I have the opinion that our great country was founded at least partially on greed.
