Government of Choice
« on: October 16, 2010, 10:47:54 PM »
What government type do you support? Democracy, Republic, something else? If I were to pick a government type, it would be Communism, not the Leninism/Stalinism Communism with those dictators, but the theoretical, working Communism, i.e., everyone is equal, no social classes, nobody is out of anybody's league, etc.

As a side, please do not criticize other people's government choices, you can point out what's wrong with Communism if you like (go wild, im2smart4u), but no lashing out at other people simply because of what they believe in.

I'm a Baptist Republican. Yeah. I think the Republican side better fits America but if insets allowed to vote already, it would be after a lot of prayer. And nice way to set up rules Duskling. :)

I'm in favor of an absolute democracy, not voting is as unamerican as not paying taxes, there needs to be a stop to it, and it's not even that hard to vote, I can't believe that someone would pay their taxes willingly and not vote.

Not paying taxes is very Amercian. It's just not a value prized by the government collecting those taxes.

I would say it's more in the spirit of dishonesty, but we can't all agree on everything.

I would want a Democratic Socialist Republic (Don't worry; I don't mean "Communist Dictatorship with high HIV/AIDS prevalence").

No, I'm implying that a lot of countries that call themselves "Dem. Republic of..." tend to be communist dictatorships with high HIV/AIDS prevalence rates. I'm not seeing the racism here.

Democratic republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, People's Democratic Republic of Yemen, German Democratic Republic, Democratic People's Republic of North Korea + a bunch more. HIV/AIDS prevalence is high in Africa, which is where some of them were, and Communist countries REALLY like to call themselves People's Republics and Democratic Republics. Still not seeing the racism.
