The Pledge Of Allegience....

I Pledge Allegience 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!

Hmm...!

Q. So, a republic is a system in which the laws are passed and decisions made by the elected representatives of the people, right?
A. Right

Q. Is this a republic?
A. No, it's a democracy.

But, but...a democracy is a government wherein decisions are made by the masses of the people rather than by elected representatives.

Q. So...Which is it?
A. Well, Thomas Jefferson said--its both--a Democraticrepublic.

Because the system allows the masses of qualified voters to participate in the election of their officials (democracy) and then the people's elected representatives enact the laws and administer the affairs of the people under majority rule but with the equal protection of individual rights (a republic).

Q. So then it "is" a democracy.

No. The only part of the American system which is borrowed from "democracy" is the popular election of government officials. Except for this, the Founders strongly emphasized the "republican aspects" of the American system. A republic places the responsibility for sound government and decision­making on the people's elected representatives rather than allowing the fluctuating and superficial emotions of the people to override law and order or the rights of minorities. The classical example of government functioning on republican principles and prevailing over "pure democracy" would be the case of a sheriff protecting a prisoner against a lynch mob.

Q. So what is the Hegelian Dialect?
A. The 'think tank' behind the whole operation.

Realisticlly, America is a UN-constitutional "corporate dictatorship". The wealthy rule, by force. The classes are subject to whatever the dictator imposes.

Arbitrary justice is dispensed daily, the poor and minorities are considered "disposible".

You are guilty till proven rich.

You get as much justice as you can afford.

You get as much health care as you can afford.

America is the greatest lie ever bought by the masses.

And you have co-conspired so much that if someone attempted to REMOVE YOU from the "belly of the beast" you would resist KICKING AND SCREAMING.

Besides not liking it, what is the solution?

Achievable or not.

Oh!!

Your analysis noteably omits 'under God'.

Is that because you find it not relevant to either democratic or republican construction.

Actually, I am working on my second appeal to the E.U. for status of residency and citizen.

Was turned down by Denmark, and Scandanavia.

You are correct Fine. The few people I shared with, have abandoned me. Including a family member.

Should you ever decide to live abroad, keep it extremly private.

I do not pledge allegiance for personall reasons and for Biblical reasons.

I do not agree with those who do. I choose not to make a issue with it.

I get your point, I think.

'under God' is irrelevant to you issue of 'republic' vs 'democratic'.

'under God' is unimportant to me as well. It's a political manipulation of religion.

And...it wasn't there when I learned it anyway.



--No problem, I was just responding to your original post about the 'absence' of the words 'under God' in my version of the pledge of alligience...
