You claim that Britain is not a democracy because it has a monarch, in other words, a head of state. By your logic, any country with a head of state is not a democracy.

By your logic, democracies simply cannot exist.

What was the Weimar Republic if it was not a democracy?

<quoted text>Word games?

So when you lie about the nomination of Macmillan being the UNANIMOUS choice, you are insisting that I am not allowed to the point that you lie?

I am still waiting for you to announce that you were WRONG and that Macmillan was not only NOT the UNANIMOUS choice, but he was not even the UNANIMOUS choice of his own party.

Do you know what UNANIMOUS means, SuperFAG?
Like a typical fundamentalist you think that being wrong equates to lying. I picked a wrong word to describe Macmillan's popularity; you thus pounce on this word and proclaim to the world that I am a liar despite the fact that you, of all people, are exceptionally dishonest with Britain's government and refuse to address the substance of the argument.

To lie is to make a false statement with the intention to deceive; I did not.

By your logic, everyone who has ever been wrong has lied. This includes you, my manchild friend, when you claimed that the Weimar republic was not a democracy.

SuperFAG?
In an assertion that had no grammatical errors?
Clearly: you can excuse yourself out of anything (as we have seen here) by insisting whatever you say was a 'grammatical error'.
Since you are an expert on language, how about defining democracy at long last instead of clinging to a one-word victory?

Scores a point; claims knock out.

I.E. It was an either unanimous choice... or you lied.[QUOTE]

He was certainly popular - your Wiki quote even stated as such when it said "near unanimous".

Whoops - you have just, by your own logic, lied.

Unless you can prove me wrong, of course.

[QUOTE who="barefoot2626"] <quoted text>
Ah!
So I was correct when I said that you lied.
Is being wrong and lying the same thing?

How about when you claimed that universities do not issue politics degrees? Were you lying then?(I see you have not even bothered admitting being wrong here).

How about when you claimed the Weimar republic was not a democracy? Is that a lie?

How about when you keep refusing to answer whether mammal A and B are the same due to all cases having to adhere to their umbrella terms? Was that lying?

By all means, tell me.

Far from it; on the contrary you respond to snippets of my posts, usually cutting them off mid sentence, while ignoring the other 95 percent.

I, on the other hand, respond to yours word for word, line for line, post for post.

Facts are facts, manchild.

You never mentioned "in WWII"; you simply said that the Reichstag was democratically elected but was still not a democracy.

Thus, you were talking about Germany pre-1934, before the Nazis eliminated democratic elections. So, if the Weimar republic was not a democracy, then what was it? "Not a monarchy" is in the same vague answer league as saying "not a frog" or "not a space station".
barefoot2626 wrote:

It is based on the logic you use and your refusal to answer my questions.

You have claimed that as Britain can be defined as a monarchy, it cannot be defined as a democracy. It is -exactly- like saying that as Einstein can be defined as a male, he cannot be defined as German, scientist, etc.

I ask you to address this. You refuse to.

Conclusion?

Manchild thinks that things can only be defined by one word.

Let me make it even simpler for you to understand: since you can be defined as a manchild, you cannot be defined as an American.

Your logic, your rules.

No answers, no substance, no argument. Manchild logic fails like that.

When did I lie about being wrong?

When are you going to admit to being wrong about politics degrees and universities? Or the Weimar republic not being a democracy, then changing your argument to include "in WWII"? Or being wrong about all things being the same under umbrella terms? Or that things can only be defined by one word?

You are again demonstrating that you have no idea what you are arguing against.

I am not denying that differences exist between umbrella terms, in this case, mammals and fish.

what I am saying, manchild, is that when we look into the variants within umbrella terms - ie, between mammals like monkeys, horses, dogs, etc, we distinctive differences that lead to further sub-divisions within that family.

In other words, you cling to "monarchy". Your own sources call Britain a Constitutional monarchy specifically because our system of government - complete with the Queen at the top - is significantly different to other monarchies such as in Saudi Arabia.

Yet by your stupid logic of having to look at only the umbrella term, you act as if these differences are non-existant.

All monarchies are the same.

All mammals are the same.

All fish are the same.

That is the point. That is what you cannot refute. That is why your argument fails.

It cannot be any more obvious that you deny that Britain is a Constitutional monarchy. That is why you keep asking if we have a Constitution or not.

Heck, let's play your own game:

Is Britain a Constitutional monarchy? Yes or no?

I am not inventing your silence - and that is what is giving your game away.

Accept it, little boy: you think if you say nothing I cannot prove that you think Britain is not a Constitutional monarchy.
