I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
USA have a REPUBLIC system of government. Stop telling me that we have or we are a DEMOCRACY government.
REPUBLIC-[Lat. respublica , fr. res, a thing, and publicus, public.] A state governed by representatives elected by the citizens.
DEMOCRACY-[Gr. demos, the people, and kratein, to rule.] Government by the people.
If an individual is awake and really know what is going in our government you can easily differentiate the two. However, if you are sleep and brainwashed by our government, public schools, televisions programmings, degree holders, and so on, you can't tell the difference between the two.
Easy, we are governed by elected officials. People/citizens does not rule in this country. Govern/Government by the people is not what we are. I am a person/people/citizens and I do not govern anything or this country. Furthermore, if you are a citizen of this country and govern, let me know. I wanted to know HOW you did it.
Educate yourselves and differentiate the two. Have you read the PLEDGE OF ALLIGEANCE, it say's "and to the REPUBLIC," not democracy...
