    Namely, that what we have is anything like Democracy. On the face of it, we're a Republic, not a Democracy. I think that's an important distinction, but not everyone agrees with me.

    But that said, we have a Republic only on the face of it: we're an oligarchy/plutocracy and the little vote-show we put on every few years is just window dressing. I don't understand how anyone can see what's happened with the banks and think otherwise. Hell, even Senator Durbin agrees with me.

    So, y'know, hooray for race relations. And as for democracy, well, I think it'd be a hell of a lot better than what we've got now.
