There are nine words in your quote. None of them are "has".

Why, Barefoot, are you trying to conflate "is" and "has"?

And the rest of that sentence you have omitted was "system of government".

You know full well what my argument has been ever since I started posting. To keep trying to set up strawmen is simply sad.

I reminded Barefoot that I have on three occasions posted his direct quotes about Sweden's name making it a monarchy and three times he has ignored them.

His response:

A loaded question and a strawman; neither of which have anything to do with his contradiction-in-one-page.

By Barefoot's book, North Korea and China are democratic republics.

That's nice. Can you now provide us a definition for democracy and show how Britain and Sweden cannot qualify as democracies?

Remember: by your argument of things only belonging to one family/definition, the United States is a republic and only a republic.

Also: when are you going to post the "ENTIRE COMMENT" and show the following paragraph that you omitted from quoting me?

Are you sure he is "a cristian like you?" Why is the government installing Muslim foot baths in the State Capitol of Tennessee? There is already a minaret on top of the State Capitol in Nashville as you can clearly see at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tennessee_State_...

Are atheists fair game for Muslims? And if atheists are fair game for Muslims, why can't Christians and Buddhists and Hindus enjoy the fun?

"Jonathon Turley, a law professor at George Washington University, reports on a disturbing case in which a state judge in Pennsylvania threw out an assault case involving a Muslim attacking an atheist for insulting the Prophet Muhammad. Judge Martin stated that the First Amendment of the Constitution does not permit people to provoke other people."
