    I wasn't sure where to post this, here, or in the Political Races thread. Anyway, mine is constitutional monarchy.

    -I have 2 domains, but then my network is rather small.

    I prefer what we (are supposed to) have....A Constitutional Republic.

    Our form of government is more properly termed a representative democracy. I think our government works pretty well. I also like the British style parliamentary system, which is within a Constitutional monarchy.

    I don't care what you would prefer it called, but our founding documents CLEARLY call it a republic.

    It is a republic ruled by a ....What?

    -Constitution.

    To say otherwise is an outright lie and distorts the very nature of our government.

    YOUR term would be to soften up peoples minds to more readily accept "democracy" as a term used by socialists to subvert our government because people do not know what we have.

    The very use of your term makes me rather angry, and it insults every American alive and dead.

    Being a political science student....well call it whatever you want. It's all the same thing. However we DO live in a representative democracy. Have you ever voted on state or local ballot proposition? This is direct democracy. Our government is a republic in one sense, and a democracy in another sense. It's a little of both - that's its genius.

    Good answer.
    I'm assuming most of us feel the same way.
    Or perhaps some just see our government as the next best thing to the one they prefer.
