Don't have to look it up, went to school when the books told the truth not what some politician or ideologue like you wanted you to know.<quoted text>
You don't have the slightest idea what being a Republic really means and ALL that it means. You have made up your own definition, which isn't even remotely what it means. Look up the word and it will tell you the difference, and the ONLY difference, between a Democracy and a Republic. I looked it up in Webster's Dictionary many years ago because I didn't know exactly what the difference was and I had it mentioned to me by some People everytime I said the word, Democracy, that we were a Republic. Yes, we are...but it does not mean, what you think it means, or what you've been told that it means!
Here's a Hint...it has nothing to do with Political Parties, nor their Ideologies, nor what they stand for...NOTHING!
LOOK IT UP! It's very short and very easy to understand, in the Webster's Dictionary, the only difference between a Democracy and a Republic form of Government!
I could tell you, but you would call me a Liar...I know, because I have before on here and that's exactly what happened. So, then I had to copy and paste the definition and still the Hard-Heads denied it. so, I want you to Google it yourself and read it for yourself, so that you will have no doubt. I recommend Webster's dictionary Lin, since it's an Old and Established, Proven, Credible Source.
A republic is representation of the people by people elected to office. A democratic nation is one that is ruled by a majority of the popular vote.(i.e. India, etc)
Your right, It does not have anything to do with Republicans, democrats, wigs, libertarians, etc. Never has in all my years.
As I stated, I believe it is all over. Its just a matter of WHEN not IF; will you libs realized you have been used!.
