I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

The question in the subject and the question in the poll are two completely different questions. One asks what we were founded as and the other asks what we are. Very misleading. We were formed to be a limited government republic. We are now some hybrid of socialism/welfare state/plutocracy. We have a small group of people who make all the decisions for us including who we are allowed to vote for so that we keep them and their kind in office and consolidating power to them while making us think we are free.

Lords could have a "representative republic" and in some regions of the world that was so.
(the following is not directed at you, joko): Defining or Redefining does not help the soundness of your argument one iota. Definitions can only, and should only be used for, clarifying your argument. Trying to get people to use whatever one believes is the 18th century nomenclature merely confounds the issue. I think some people think they are winning if they get to be the ones to define things.
You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
