A DEMOCRACY IS A DICTATORSHIP
It does NOT matter what you are told in books, on TV, on the net, a Democracy is dictatorship.

You have NOTHING to do with the selection of who runs, and who wins. NOTHING.

Now you tell me why I AM RIGHT.

This country was originally founded as a constitutional republic. But over time eroded from within into an athenian democracy.

That doesn't make sense.

Democracy is mob-rule, not the iron-fist rule of one.

The United States was set up as a Republic, if we could keep it, as Franklin said.

True in the beginning thankyou, but it did not evolve into an athenian democracy. It evolved into a dictatorship pretending to be a republic.

How to start a nation (see: fiasco) using only the power of rabble-rousing!

1) No taxation without representation! Let's rebel!

2) Now that we have our nation, I think we can all agree... Tax the moonshiners! Fuck their representation!

 Quoting: Jericho9


but you see, the people aren't voting in honesty. The are manipulated to vote iin the chosen dictator. So in the USA which is the chosen dictator this time? You ones have to start looking AT THE OBVIOUS.

a democracy has always been a disguised dictatorship since I was a small child this time around and it seems for a long history before then. They had to throw away the "republic" as a word and put in another word to cover up the dictatorship process.
I tried at one time to figure the difference between a democracy and a republic. Several pieces have been written and NONE OF THEM MAKE ANY SENSE. I even tried to write my own and that is when I fully realized it is NOT POSSIBLE to define democracy as anything other than a word for dictatorship.

Just because you get to go "vote" does not deny the dictatorship.

Re: A DEMOCRACY IS A DICTATORSHIP
The people are NOT in charge in current democracy. Corporations, banks, lobbyists, Wall Street, Goldman Sachs, the privileged elites and markets run nations, not the people or their elected representatives.

Democracy is PEOPLE POWER, and power is exactly what the people are forbidden from having by the markets and the rich!

It's time for "government of the people by the people for the people" rather than "government of the people by the rich for the rich".

The rich have hijacked the political system and made it work for them. All political parties are a joke and all politicians are a joke. They simply act as the front men for the rich. They create the illusion that the people have a say. It never matters who's in power because the world is run by the market and the market is deliberately kept separate from the political process so that the rich can rule without interference.

That is what "democracy has delivered" - rule by the rich. Isn't it time for meritocratic democracy where the smartest people in the world will design a brand new system that makes the market accountable to the people and thus brings to an end the rule of the rich?
