We know that America is not a true democracy, but I think it is as close as you are going to get any where on this planet; and yes, that includes all of America's faults and frailties.---sunnubian
Lest we forget...
The United States has never written itself into the record as a democracy.
The United States has always defined itself as a republic.
The verbage of being 'a democracy' is a integral to the bullshit of hegemony.
Let's not fool ourselves here.
