    Republic vs Democracy - YouTube

    "Our system of government was never intended to be a democracy. Although many believe that we live in one, they have never been asked to vote on the decisions made by said government. Yet they believe that they are empowered just the same. We are not."

    Pretty interesting...

    and a little scary.

    Just sharing because I found it an interesting video, and thought some others on here would as well.

    The end of the video ... ultimately end up as an Oligarchy? That is sadly laughable. We've been there for decades already. The illusion of freedom of choice (voting) just keeps the deluded believing otherwise. In any sizable corporation (and the United States is a corporation via British Columbia) the President is merely a spokesperson and figurehead. The real power and decision making is done by the board of directors (the Oligarchs). The financial elite, the foreign (mostly British banking dynasty family) owners of the Fed, own us lock, stock and barrel.

    We actually made the step into being a Oligarchy long ago; in the late 1880s. We were a Republic for only a short period of time before our oppressors infiltrated every part of our lives. Later, they went on to make sure that were were property just like cattle.

    We stood up and fought bravely and then underestimated the cunning and guile of our enemies that we never really gained independence from at all.

    The 98% will never come to terms with that fact. Believing comforting things and false history is more important to the proud flouride heads than the discomfort of realizing one is actually a slave.

    Doesn't anyone that took High School Civic's know that the USA is a Representative Republic, not a Democracy?
