    That's about the most pinheadded reply I have ever heard; article 4 section 4 quite clearly does NOT mention a "fucking Republic". I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone piped in with some moronic knee-jerk reaction like that though, considering the convulsions the Know-Nothing party has every time they hear the word "democracy" or "democratic". It's really childish, and evidence of their ignorance of the founding fathers, the evolution of the terms "democracy" and "republic" (they were virtually synonyms at the time of the Revolution, which you would know if you ever cracked a book by any of the founding fathers or other enlightenment philosophers) or the party founded by Thomas Jefferson (surprise! it was the Democratic-Republican Party). Anyone who claims to be a republican should really know Thomas Jefferson backwards and forwards.

    Jeffersonian Democracy

    Thomas Jefferson referred to "a democracy" as the form of government that elects representatives, and "republic" as the pure ideal of elected government that we are trying to model our government after. Others, like John Adams, reversed it and referred to a "republic" as the form of government that elects representatives, and "democracy" as the ideal which we all aspire to achieve. Educated people now refer to any government that seeks these ideals—representative government, and all citizens having equal power to elect them and thus control the path of government—as a "democratic republic".

    You're welcome.

    The selective reporting in the media says they have nose rings. So what? How many of them actually do?
    Use the power of deduction. Why would a Republican protest a Republican President?

    He is a genius. For the first time in eight years he has stood up to nations that are against America. Obama showed we are weak and Trump showed the enemy we are strong. We are not appollogizing for being America anymore

    Welcome to PH Gonk. Trump could make America great again if he would focus on rebuilding the middle class but, yes he'll be a spectacular failure.

    You really can't fathom how all liberals, all Christians, all Republicans, or all of any other group just might not think alike. In the real world, people are more complex than you think.

    Wait... how come someone can't criticize Trump because it hasn't even been 100 days yet but you can worship him even though it hasn't even been 100 days yet?

    Oh, I know... #TrumpCult

    He stood up to idiots in foreign countries 3 times in the last couple of weeks. Obama would have said he was sorry for America and their past and would have sent them cookies and ice cream
