Which type of government is better, a democracy or a republic?
Like direct democracy vs representative democracy? Cause I'm going to keep calling out the idea that "we're not a democracy we're a republic" where ever I see it, it's like saying we don't drink liquids, we drink water.
I embrace the "we're not a democracy, were a republic" argument in criticizing republicanism.
I suppose you can use to point out how undemocratic the founding fathers were, and how the undemocratic aspects of the Constitution have not protected any minority other than the extremely wealthy and powerful, as James Madison himself admitted he felt aught to be the primary role of government
Get rid of the oligarchy like the Republicans want it
Stupidity vs corruption
Democracy by a mile. I don't trust other people to run my life.
You trust mob rule? This actually surprises me doc.
Mob rule is terminology which I believe was created by the founding fathers to justify maintaining their elitist power.
Republic by a large margin. Individuals and minorities lose protection under a democracy because you can end up with majority or mob rule. youtu.be/RiKAs8Po24I
Republic - by far in my opinion.... the more democratic we get the closer we get to the shithole that Greece has been in for the past 5 years.... after all, who doesn't want higher wages, greater pensions, and a giant safty net?
