No it isn't, it's a republic. You don't know what you're talking about. Are you an American? If you're from China or somewhere like that I can excuse your ignorance of American History. But if you were raised in this country, you should know something so basic. Did you go to school?

Again, if you're not from this country, then I can excuse you. But now you know, we're not a democracy, we're a republic. There, you learned something. You're welcome.



If you take the alternate facts that are now widely championed by Kellyanne Conway & the GOP, and want to split hair and point out that the racist, sexist, and rapist Trump was elected due to a Electoral College process despite losing a popular vote by about 3 million ballots, then yes, America is a republic. But that is not in the context of my response to SooPoor.

And if you are saying because of gerrymandering, photo IDs and other voter suppression tactics primarily by the GOP, then yes, America is far from being a democracy. However, in the context of my response to SooPoor, democracy was used to bring up the freedom of expression discussion, but not a form of government. So, yes we are a democracy.

I assume you didn't go to school. But assuming that you did, then it was a total waste of your parent's money and the society's resource to educate you. Is this something new that you learned about my opinion of you, isn't it? And no, I don't expect an "you're welcome" from you.

And to address you concern about my education and alien status -- No, I did not go to school, and I came here illegally from planet Krypton. I'm an illegal alien here, but am a proud Kryptonian. And yes, I did vote in the 2016 election despite being an illegal alien.

Could you tell us whom you voted for, or at least who was running?

If you believe that RonC did not vote for the racist, sexist and rapist Trump, then you must believe that I did vote for the racist, sexist and rapist Trump.

Despite what you may think or what your opinion is, the United States is a republic, not a democracy.

Why are you insulting a highly regarded member of this forum by making fun of his name. You are really showing your ignorance. Sorry, gotta call it like I see it.

This is why Trump is going to build The Wall. We're sick of Kryptonians.
'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.

Your hypocrisy had given me a little insight to why we are now become flawed democracy.

Failed grammar school history, eh? We're not a democracy, never have been. Just where in the Constitution is the word "democracy"? Get back to us when you have a rudimentary understanding of civics.



And in a follow-on:

This is trolling. You're deliberately misunderstanding the reference 777 made to SOOPOO about the international change in designation from "true democracy" to "flawed democracy" and interjecting a condescending distraction argument. See the link he posted before your first post (above).

Next:

at least twice.

It is a violation of our rules to change a member's name to be derogatory or mocking of them.

Several others piling on in both directions. Rudeness included by some. Very destructive to the forum for this to become the norm.

Ruling: offsetting penalties. Bobbartop and 777 are respectively warned.

Finally:

Additional warning to all members. From this point, dropping election snark into non-election threads will be considered hijacking and enforced more strictly than it has been.

The election is over. There are at least 2 other threads started about the Trump era (below). Please confine your political remarks to those threads so those who are not here to argue about politics can ignore them and not have to put up with hijacks.

As I said above, the election is over. Unless Trump persists with his ridiculous claim and investigates "3 to 5 million illegal voters" as he claims he will, it has served its purpose.
