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.
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.

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!.

WROHG! It ONLY means that instead of each and everyone of us Voters voting on each and every little piece of Legislation, we elect a Representative, or Representative(s), such as Congressmen and Senators to vote the Majority of our wishes! THAT is ALL it means! THAT'S IT, NOTHING MORE AND NOTHING LESS! THAT is the ONLY difference between a Democracy and a Republic!!!
And that is why we have a House of Representatives and a Senate...that is because we are a Republic, and that is what makes us a Republic! PERIOD!

Please accept a note of pleasantry in response to your greeting. Please rest in the assurance that I do not begrudge your teasing or social sparring. I carry a ferocity of perseverance most would never understand and have learned well the hierarchy of priorities as it relates to my beliefs and immutable convictions. I believe many are deficient of experiential resources with which to understand the very world they live in. Perhaps you detect impatience of bearing in my efforts to challenge others to consider the larger picture of critical issues they purport to have commanding knowledge, but have absolutely none. The only sadness I carry and dread that makes me shudder is the hard realization that so many of our brothers and sisters will fail to recognize the living, resurrected and soon coming Son of God, in time to escape the disaster coming upon all the earth. It is impossible to be learned of God's bible and not be driven to warn those who might listen and consider. Secondary to this understanding is my concern for our country as She is under attack and Americans are in the middle of a revolution and most don't even realize it.
While you and I appear to be at bitter opposition in political and cultural context, I do observe your work and realize you have much to offer our great God. My great hope is that we all soon realize He has much more to offer us. Please allow me to bid you a good evening. Tks.

Sore loser NO! Obama got elected by the majority of people in Labor unions, on welfare, food stamps, etc. There are a lot of ignorant people out there especially in the cities. As long as it does not affect them they do not care. Half of them could not even tell you who the VP was. That is how tuned in they are to the biggest potential catastrophe the US has ever faced. Do you really know what this is. How far are you liberals willing to take it? What is your idea of a New USA. Lets see.......
http://www.ntrc.info/doorbell.html
Rem there is always a ruling class in any type of government except a republic. There its citizens while separate in ideology work together for its good mainly because the republic provides gives something back to all. Now with Obama, The Libs was a bigger piece of the pie. To get it the Republic must be thrown out and another form of Gov. installed.
Sooooo, you're admitting that the majority of America is liberal leaning...

Maybe Sandi Jackson and hubby Jessie Jackson Jr(2 of the most prominate democraps in Illinois) can share a jail cell together. Taking $242k from hubby's campaign contributions isn't a good idea....but it is standard operating procedure for demoscraps in Illinois.

"After weeks of rumors and equally strenuous denials, Sandi Jackson resigned as Chicago's 7th Ward alderman Friday, the latest chapter in the stunning, scandal-laced downfall of what had been one of the city's most prominent and powerful political duos.

The decision by Ald. Jackson, who was elected in 2007, came less than two months after husband Jesse Jackson Jr. quit the congressional seat he had held for 17 years amid ongoing federal ethics probes into his campaign finances."

As the saying goes, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree."

At least they're gonna get Jr. Daddy has been extorting corporations for decades, but he's untouchable, no matter what he does.

Lucky for Jr, daddy will be able to pay his bills. You and me , we'd be in jail.

Will the REAL Obama please stand up?

An Illinois man shot a burglar in his home and was fined $750 by his town for disobeying its handgun ban. The absurdity and injustice of the situation caused the Illinois General Assembly in 2004, to pass legislation providing an exception to handgun restrictions if the weapon was used in the defense of one’s home.

Sounds like a no-brainer, right? Everyone should have the right to defend their home.

When the assembly took the vote, Obama, who was famous for voting “present” whenever he had to vote on controversial issues, instead voted to maintain the status quo, which made it a violation of municipal gun ban law to use a firearm to save your own life in your own home.

THAT is the REAL Obama. If you lose life’s lottery and are unlucky enough to have someone barge into your home, POW! You’re dead.
