I read your reply, and it sounds like you didn't listen.

You say yourself: "I am going to listen further as Ron Paul's speech was spoken into the Official National Record." - Josf

In order to listen further, you must have stopped?

So, did you listen further than only the first few minutes, or not? Because your replies seem as if you did not.

Quite simply, democracy is majority rule. What you actually attempt to wrongly explain as 'democracy' is liberty - the right of the people to do as they please, as long as they don't infringe upon the rights of others.

And as Dr. Paul explains in his speech, only a republic protects liberty.
