    I think clearly when need to a more social democratic mode as a startl. We need to go back to economics before trickle down. I think we do need a bigger social welfare state. We need to being to raise the tax rate on the upper income levels. We need a reinvest in our infrastructure. We need to regulate banks more.
    Can you perhaps provide some kind of timeline here so that I have some idea what economic time period you want to return to?

    Well yes. I do believe the USA should become much more of a social democracy.

    well OK, however i am on the opposite end i want it to be a republic based on the Roman republic as the founders created.

    mean to block collective legislation.

    A social democracy is not anti-republic...

    a democracy is not true republic.

    democracy puts all direct power into the people...one single enity......this kind of action causes majority rule..ie tyranny.

    a republic separates direct power, the people have some the states have some, which prevents tyranny.

    the founders constructed a republic based on the Roman republic, it only has 1 single element of democracy.

    A republic is a country that doesn't have a monarchy. That's what a republic is.

    The Soviet Union was a republic, Union of Soviet Socialist Republic aka USSR. Nazi Germany was a republic. England isn't a Republic but a monarchy, they have a queen, some times a king.

    A republic is a country that lacks a monarchy. What you are talking about is the idea of federalism. Federalist states delegate power to sub-regional governments such as the U.S. or Canada. A unitary state does not though it may grant very limited powers to sub-regional entities, France or the Netherlands would be example of this.

    sorry no that's not correct...

    the founders knew of the roman republic, these types of government which call themselves republics today did not exit in 1787.

    France had its revolution in 1789, which was a democratic movement, ..called themselves a republic because they threw off the monarchy, however it was not a true republic, but the term stuck in history, and all kinds of government now are calling themselves republic , which is not true.

    our government and the structure of the roman republic is the same..it is a mixed government -federalist 40

    a democratic republic is an oxymoron to the founders
