A Federal Republic.<quoted text>
Republic is a very broad term, retard. What kind of republic do we live in?
And IF schools taught that & explained it, more people would be voting responsibly. More politicians would quit bending or breaking The Constitution or violating the Bill of Rights because the educated voters would be 'calling' them on it.
We wouldn't now have warrantless searches, eavesdropping, surveillance, WE would not have Nobama Care pending, there may even have been a couple of impeachment proceedings that would have influenced other 'representatives' of any & ALL parties to stay inside of the Constitutional law or the Bill of Rights.
I am not as quick on the keypad or as long of word as Loren so I'll finish with those limitations even tho I have additional thoughts.
