as a Democratic Republic, but honestly, the main point that I wanted to make was that the bickering over which lame party is best needs to stop in this country. We have fallen so far away from the original intent of the founding fathers that most people never even consider that the Constitution still makes sense today. Not only does it make sense, but if we returned to following its premise of people first and states rights over national controlling departments, many of our budgetary problems and civil liberty invasions would be taken care of.
I intended this to be a more practical than philosophical post, but, as always, the insights are appreciated. I can always count on being challenged here and that is why I love this site.
