    It's not, and she has already proved such. Since we are going with a moral judgment, wouldn't that be subjective anyway?

    Point out to the debunking moment, as I've apparently missed it.

    1)The US is a full democracy, I have already proven that.
    2)The US is a representative democracy and a constitutional republic

    That is nothing more than a fallacy man.
    No dog, Goobieman was talking about the US and how people misunderstand it as another form of democracy.
    I've shown him why he's wrong in making that statement, by proving that other nations - not only the US - are following the same "rules".

    Re: Do you get upset at the word democracy?

    My point still stands.
    Democracy is the most moral form of regime.

    Examples of Democracies:
    The US, the UK, Germany, etc.
