Actually we are a democratic republic, look up the phrase democratic republic in the dictionary and look at the first example given.

The whole popular argument that we are either a democracy or a republic are both wrong, we are both, always have been.

We didn't expect you to understand, critical thinking is a difficult thing for you.
But you keep your head in the sand.
BTW, since you agree Article V isn't made up, perhaps now you could read it. Then we could discuss how it was violated during the drafting of the 14th Amendment.
If we ever get you educated that far, which is highly doubtful, we can then discuss the use of martial law during the ratification when the vote didn't go the way they liked the first time.
We've had this discussion before. It's over with, dickweed. The 14th Amendment is not going away, and you can squawk about Article V all you like.

So why do you think they did it that way?

Was there a plan behind all this?

Thanks

That whole argument always bothered me,“we are a democracy, no we are a republic!”

We are a democratic republic, we are practically the definition of a democratic republic.

And we would not be a nation I would want to live in if we were only one or the other, as either of them alone is terrible in one way or another.

We are not perfect, far from it, but as a representative democracy and a republic, it is tolerable.

It also allows us to debate the issues of the day, as we do here. Whether agree, disagree, or agree to disagree, we're fortunate to be able to do so. Now back to the show.

Like many on-line here, I too was molested by my uncle at an early age. But I don't continue to cry and bellyache about it. I'm a man and have put those events behind me.
You should do the same, turd4brains.

Are you hoping that people on your same low level will not notice that the person you are trying to impersonate always posts from Union City? How's it feel to be an ass? I guess we can ask your uncle.

We live in divided times, I wish it wasn’t like that.

When I was young, raised as a Republican, my parents looked at democrats as fellow patriots that loved this country, but had some ideas that they somewhat disagreed with, and vice versa.

Today we live in a time where the other side are not considered patriots at all, are enemies of the country.

It is getting close to like it was before the Civil war

I wish it wasn’t like that

( and I know I am part of the problem too )

The media isnt helping, it is making it worse.
