I hear the term democracy spouted all of the time from protesters to politicians. I have read through thousands of posts from the Occupy Movements across this great nation and around the world. I came across a very interesting post. It was in reference to the idea that America is supposed to be a democracy. The response was: We are Not and Never were intended to be a democracy!!! The author of the response post referenced the Pledge of Allegiance: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands….” I was intrigued, so I looked it up. I found a link that does a good job of explaining the difference between the two and gives historical references from our founding father’s:
WOW!!! I WANT OUR REPUBLIC BACK!!!
Safety, Peace and Wellness to the thousands of occupiers world wide!!! Keep it up!!! I’m leaving Vermont in 3 weeks to take to the road and hopefully visit your city and site to help document this historic movement!!! We Are the 99%–We will not be defeated and We will never give up!!!
