In America, atheists are still in the closet

Apr 11, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Spiked

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

You don't know what 'federation' means, either, eh, Chubby?

Do you want me to go down the list of federations that are democracies?

When did your husband leave you, Chubby?

You have to take a civics class, Skanque.

Federation and democracy are NOT mutually exclusive. Monarchy and democracy in this world are.

Monarchies work like: the head of state is a territory ruled over by a monarch- as in the UK... that is why they are a kingdom.

The democracy comes into it when we-citizens- vote in November every two years or so for people to represent out interests in state and federal offices.

I know voting is concept a bit foreign to you... you don't get much practice.

Why don't you show everyone here where I said my vote directly elected the president of the US?
That would really show me! except of course I continually remind you that the USA is a republic and that I vote indirectly for the POTUS.
Compare to the UK, where there is no voting for the head of state.
You see, Chubby: Americans vote indirectly for the head of state; subjects in the UK get no vote.
Ahh right so you are admitting that you don’t get to vote for who is to be president – thank you

You comntinually remind us the the US is a democracy and you get all defective and vomit excuses when you are told that the US is constitutional republic

As opposed to the US where the electorate cannot vote for the head of state

Indirectly?

You're ranting again, Chubby.
The USA is a democracy. Perhaps you can take a civics class after you take an English class and that history class to make up for all the classes surely you must of flunked before flunking out of school?
Now first, in the UK, you have no vote. None.
That should be easy to understand.
Wrong drippydick – juts because you do not understand the Constitution does not mean the Constitution is wrong. It juts means that you don’t understand it

I don't need to look at a list to define the UK as a monarchy: it describes itself that way.
I just love it when you get all defensive

More than you, Chubby.
As I have show many dozens of times.
I start with being to respond HONESTLY to the following question:
Is the UK a monarchy? Yes or no?
In your delusions only

How many fooking times di I need to be HONEST - YES – that’s Y E S - in English it’s still yes, in french oui – lets try some ASCII decimal 86, 69, 83 or hex 0x59, 0x45, 0x53, maybe you will understnbd binary 01011001 01000100 01010011.

Gosh, Odoriferous Skanque: I've been saying the PM has been appointed from line one.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHA!
It seems the syphilis has gone straight to the brain!
That you have and had no say in who is the PM, that the PM in the UK is appointed.
Does none of this ring a bell?
At last you begin to see the truth, you quote my post, I respond and claim it was yours. I have always said the prime minister of the UK was appointed by the party in power. You are the one who tried and tried to contradict fact.

And plagiarism will not help your case, it juts makes tou look stupid and brainless

And it looks like you are going into meltdown again, tell you nurse to put you back in bed

The UK is both a monarchy and a constitutional democracy, just because it is not written in a single document does not mean that the British constitution does not exist

It is no ones fault but your own that you are incapable of understanding the politics of another country do not fit your dreams

The only time I "admit" something is when you invent something I didn't say.

Funny how that is.

I voted for president- like most Americans in this forum- in the last month.

When did you get to vote for PM?

I can tell when you start frothing at the mouth: your spelling takes a turn for the worst.

The US is a democracy. Take a deep breath.

The vein in your forehead is throbbing.

The US is an *indirect* democracy, as are *all* countries that are democracies in the world today.

Take a deep breath.

For a country to be a direct democracy, all its citizens would have to meet in the same place and vote on everything.

Clam blue ocean, Chubby.... breath out slowly...

In Britain we vote for our prime minister every four years, our head of state is the queen, she is not voted in and has no power, Americas president is not voted in but has all the power, see the difference now, our unelected head of state is the queen, just a figure head, a ceremonial position with no power, your unelected head of state is your president, who has lord of shockingly undemocratic powers

It must hurt you to know that the UK is considered by everyone yo be more democratic, freer, more liberal, more progressive and more secular and modern country than America, whether you like it or not, America is considered a backward primitive, extreme right wing, crazy fundamentalist nation, hillbillys with nukes, disturbing, the fundamentalists in Iran aren't allowed nukes, but the fundamentalists in America are....

Funny that, you just admitted it and you deny admitting it –

You did not get the option of who of the two candidates would be president

I voted in 2010 at the time of the G E N E R A L - E L E C T I O N
