Are you a Republican or a Democrat Fulub ? You can't be both. A Republican is "of the land mass". A Democrat is "of the Government".

Republic is a French word from Latin meaning something like "The things that belong to the people". It is generally used to describe countries that have done away with their monarchs. Democracy is Greek for "Rule by the common people". Graham, where do you get these idiot definitions from, more to the point, where did you park your brain?

From Law Dictionaries Keith. Where the language of legalese takes words we use and give them a completely different definition. Try Blacks Law. There's about eight editions.

And my brain is parked firmly in the truth where remedy resides.

Well I'd be interested in seeing the actual entries, just out of curiosity to see how you manage to misconstrue things. In any case AFAIK neither 'republic' nor 'democracy' are legal terms, simply ordinary English words. Try the OED. And what relevance has this to anything, the UK has only ever been a republic under Cromwell's totalitarian rule, is that your idea of freedom? And we are nominally a (representative) democracy, since we get to vote in elections, although it's pretty pointless since all the main parties have ganged up against the people. So as ever ... what is your solution Graham? If you don't have any answers then what is this all about?
