    Not according to any dictionary or encyclopedia or other poli-sci book I've ever read. I don't take the Book Of Natural Citizen as a valid source. ;) No, a very DISCERNING person. Language fucking matters when dealing with ideas. You don't think it's important to discern Truth from the Newspeak and propaganda of CONstitutionalists? We'll have to disagree on this, then. ;)

    Sure, but "True Republic" isn't the same as "Constitutional Republic". Political philosophy 101. That's just something you made up. The reason I listed all those republics was to illustrate why you were wrong without the proper qualifiers. Normal is vastly over-rated and common as dirt. The normal folks got us into the messes we're in. I'm glad to be weird considering what's accepted as "normal". ;) :D :cool:

    Sure, but even under that definition my brother NC is wrong. If he really meant "Constitutional Republic", he should have said so instead of trying to be slick about it as if all republics are made equal (thus out-witting himself).

    Do you really think the Federalists were some special breed far removed from the corruption we know and expect from the pols? Pssh. Come on, now. That's just being naive. Such 2 dimensional characters only exist in novels.

    Again, you don't even know why you think this. The idea of Constitutionalism is very new in the history of republics and large numbers of the contemporaries of the "Founding Generation" strongly opposed written constitutions. (this is why the term "Constitutional Republic" had to be made up) I understand you're doing apologetics, but that's not an excuse to be dishonest. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic A republic (from Latin: res publica) is a sovereign state or country which is organized with a form of government in which power resides in elected individuals representing the citizen body and government leaders exercise power according to the rule of law. In modern times, the definition of a republic is commonly limited to a government which excludes a monarch. Currently, 147 of the world's 206 sovereign states use the word "republic" as part of their official names; not all of these are republics in the sense of having elected governments, nor do all nations with elected governments use the word "republic" in their names. Both modern and ancient republics vary widely in their ideology and composition. In the classical and medieval period of Europe, many states were fashioned on the Roman Republic, which referred to the governance of the city of Rome, between it having kings and emperors. The Italian medieval and Renaissance political tradition, today referred to as "civic humanism", is sometimes considered to derive directly from Roman republicans such as Sallust and Tacitus. However, Greek-influenced Roman authors, such as Polybius and Cicero, sometimes also used the term as a translation for the Greek politeia which could mean regime generally, but could also be applied to certain specific types of regime which did not exactly correspond to that of the Roman Republic. Republics were not equated with classical democracies such as Athens, but had a democratic aspect. Republics became more common in the Western world starting in the late 18th century, eventually displacing absolute monarchy as the most common form of government in Europe. In modern republics the executive is legitimized both by a constitution and by popular suffrage. Montesquieu included in his work "The Spirit of the Laws" both democracies, where all the people have a share in rule, and aristocracies or oligarchies, where only some of the people rule, as republican forms of government. Most often a republic is a single sovereign state, but there are also sub-sovereign state entities that are referred to as republics, or which have governments that are described as 'republican' in nature. For instance, Article IV of the United States Constitution "guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican form of Government". In contrast, the Soviet Union was constitutionally described as a "federal multinational state", composed of 15 republics, two of which – Ukraine and Belarus – had their own seats at the United Nations.

    That's not correct. Ask the people who lived in the member republics of the former Union Of Soviet Socialist Republics. Or the People's Republic Of China. Or the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

    Why do you think so? The Constitution is a centralization and cartelization of power by design. It was written when the author of the DoI was in France and had no say. The DoI is all about Natural Law, while the Constitution is about the arbitrary ideals of its authors. The preamble is a lovely bit of prose, but that's not what the following articles embody.

    "What has the alt-right accomplished?" Well, they've certainly managed to help accelerate the decline of this forum to a blinding rate, by spewing their particularly vile and pernicious form of collectivism/socialism.

    *thumbsup* :) The conversion of the Slavs was extremely peaceful. It was at that time my patron saint Cyril, minister to the Slavs, and his companion Methodius invented the Cyrillic alphabet and made Church Slavonic possible. This also allowed the Slavs to become literate generally and in Bible scriptures particularly. This ministry, after a few generations, made possible the Golden Age of Russian Literature(Pushkin, etc) and general enlightenment of all Slavic people. :cool: There were no decrees, AFAIK.

    Rain doesn't always clean nature's messes. The birds congregate on a streetlight over yonder ~points~ and drops lots of shit on the cement. It gets baked there are usually doesn't get washed during the rain, for example.

    in this thread TheGrinchWhoStoleDC gave me a -rep just for satirizing IP fascists in general as if I was attacking him personally. It seems they take it very personally now. They're on teh defensive! (his full -rep message is: "seriously, fuck off if you're going to call peopel fascists for having a different viewpoint. I've been nothing but polite, despite the fact that your view flat-out sickens me. show some respect.")
