    Completely nuts. I always had my doubts if the population of the US
    understood the concept of democracy. This makes it obvious they don't
    have a clue.

    Assuming that the aholes weren't just Republican plants.

    Speaking of not having a clue.... I guess you don't know that the USA is
    not a democracy, eh? It's a republic, dimwit.

    Speaking of clueless, you should really wiki both words before you
    insist you actually know what they mean.

    Wiki this:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pledge_of_Allegiance

    "The Pledge of Allegiance to the United States is an oath of loyalty to
    the republic of the United States of America, originally composed by
    Francis Bellamy in 1892."

    "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to
    the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible,
    with liberty and justice for all."

    Doesn't say "and to the democracy for which it stands..."

    It's allegedly both, although since last week it's officially a corporate
    republic.

    A republic is merely a state run by government whose membership is
    temporary, not hereditary. If that were the case, it would be a monarchy.

    There are many types of republic- fascist, socialist, communist, Islamic.

    The adjective used to describe the republic hints at its method of
    government.

    So the US is a 'democratic' (har-de-har) republic.

    Oligarchy? why don't you look that word up before you start using it.

    Slave trading was started *in* Africa *by* africans. Egypt has a documented
    history of it. And I'm not talking about the jews - they were paid skilled
    workers.

    Don't even bother. It's a complete non-sequitor and he's just another
    kiddie troll here.

    If somebody offers you a blowjob on the street, is it your duty to accept it?
