Look, I'm not going to touch on the rest of it just at the moment (too early here for that), but this is wrong, and you should study your civics better.
'A republic is a form of government in which the country is considered a "public matter" (Latin: res publica), not the private concern or property of the rulers, and where offices of states are subsequently directly or indirectly elected or appointed rather than inherited. In modern times, a common simplified definition of a republic is a government where the head of state is not a monarch, even though most of these have institutions and offices aligned with the classic republican model and though offices may informally pass by inheritance in a republic.'
The USA is a Republic and a Representative Democracy
, AKA a Liberal Democracy
. Often people just shorten this to being a Representative Republic, but it is important to remember that it is both.
To try and say that the USA has nothing to do with Democracy is a fallacy - not all forms of Democracy are pure democracies, which is where every member gets to vote on every issue.
Well that was very poor. You proved my point. It is a representative form of government. A pure democracy is is one where everyone votes on every
matter and everyone has a say. Actually having a say, not just having a vote on election day. Votes aren't even what we base winning the election on either. We have an electoral system.
I don't understand why you made a joke of my statement, proved my point. It looks like you pretty much looked up what a republic is and then backed off. I would know what it means, poli science is my major.
Oh so you don't hate homosexuals you just don't think they should have the same rights as every one else that's ok. Oh no wait it just means you've filtered your bigotry into a more palatable form.
That is the Republicans stated stance on homosexuality. If you identify as a Republican then it's fair to assume it's your stance. Unless you're Log Cabin Republican I guess but that's simply an attempt to do something with your broken 2 party system which will get no where because of apathy from the masses.
I mean why should they change if people still vote for them even if they disagree fundamentally with their policies.
For your first part, I was merely talking about a generalized view of Republicans. I don't mind homosexuals, and if they want to marry, I don't care. I have a lot of gay friends and would like to see them happy.
But then again, I can't attack other people for what they believe. I think thats very wrong, and it doesn't make those people want to change their minds, but instead focus more in sticking to their positions. Most Muslims hate the western philosophies and ways of life. But from a personal aspect, you could get to know one and be good friends with him or her without attacking what they believe. EVEN IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE they are wrong and you are right. If you attack their beliefs they are more likely to attack you and your beliefs.
Thats why I think the way you liberals go around attacking other peoples beliefs are completely wrong. They are human beings too, and totally capable of understanding other people. By attacking them and saying they are a bunch of homosexual haters, you have forced them to stick to their guns.
The basis of the Republican Party stands on business primarly. Thats why you don't see major focus on other areas. But to say they are racists, sexists, and whatever else you call them is really being ignorant and untrue.
Firstly ignorant because the republicans were the first champions in the United States for Race and Women's Rights.
Even if you look at white trash, explain the U.S. military. It is heavily dominated by hispanics, blacks, and what are often called white trash. In my six years in the military I have never seen any acts of racism. As a hispanic I have been a brother and friends to many "white trash" and blacks.
Furthermore, the Republican Party is interesting for this reason, it is the party out there responsible for creating jobs and protecting
them in this country. No matter how you view them, you cannot deny they protect the majority of jobs in the U.S.
