We are a Republic, not a Democracy Dan. You should learn the difference.
Poor Dan, has such a had time admitting he is wrong. Look, he is arguing with the founders now..
"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself."- John Adams
"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!"
Benjamin Franklin
"We are a Republican Government, Real liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of democracy...it has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity."- Alexander Hamilton
"A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%." Thomas Jefferson
"Democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their death."- James Madison
"We may define a republic to be - a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior. It is essential to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion or a favored class of it: otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans and claim for their government the honorable title of republic."- James Madison
"Between a balanced republic and a democracy, the difference is like that between order and chaos."- John Marshall
You were saying Dan??
You guys are so afraid of a word it is hilarious, yes a pure democracy ( which we are not and I never said we were ) isnt a good government, nor is a pure republic ( which we are also not )

Letís see, one of the earlier political parties in the US was founded by none other than... the author of the declaration of independence, and the author of the US Constitution.

What name did they choose for this patriotic party?

The Democratic Republicans

Yeah they just hated the word democrat, or democracy didnít they?

The opposition party, the Federalists, were in favor of only letting the rich and affluent vote ( sounds like republicans today, and no surprise the Federalistís became the Whigs, who disbanded and whose members later became the Republican party

It is really fun when you folks pick and choose quotes to use out of context to try and push something that our founders did not agree with at all. You donít get to re-write history.

What are you going to whine about after prop 8 is gone? Me, I'm gonna party but you will still be an angry malcontent.

Remember, shooting down prop 8 is a victory for polygamists too.

Every gay and lesbian was born of male/female union. That's why we should keep marriage male/female too.

There are none but weakish ones. I support SSM, if you weren't a dope you wouldn't assume I didn't.

But skip all that, how do you do Spoogy!

Jizmie! Cummy!

Now that we've met I feel close enough to call you a jackass!

P.S. You need new tin foil.

Tooth Fairy
Jesus
Santa
God
Easter Bunny

I can picture you as a malcontent kid. Sour face. Angry. Not believing in Santa! And then you grew up. And became a sour faced angry adult. And a jackass!

You have never been right once, why expect to be now. I had a very classic childhood, almost leave it to beaver era kind of childhood.

I did stop believing in Santa, and Jesus, and the tooth fairy earlier than some others around me but my parents cautioned me that although I knew better, not to disturb the fun others were having.

I still donít have a problem with children believing in stuff like that, but when they grow up ( or donít grow up as the case may be ) and want to taker their little beliefs and apply rules to others based on those beliefs, I stop going along

Silence is consent, and I do not consent to their fantasy controlling my life or the lives of others not of their little beliefs.
