    Here is another political science type discussion thread you may wish to comment on: http://www.politicalforum.com/politi...litically.html
    Hey, thanks for the welcome. I don't know about the quality of the other posts yet, but I'll do my best to make some good contributions. Thanks also for the link to the other discussion. Whew! Looks like that one's been raging for a while. I'm not sure that I'll participate, but I may take a look around.

    Well, I just noticed the introduction thread, so I guess I'll mosey on over there and try to look presentable.

    Its a state-capitalist system. It operates on a polyarchical government that changes marginally between governments. Its a state heading a world hegemon, supporting aiding and even perpetrating extreme acts of brutality, tyranny and control. That's the US government in a nutshell.

    I'm willing to change my position at any time on any issue. I have done so in the past. All you need is a logical, provable case, and I'm all in. The question is, have you got what it takes?
    Oh, and just so you're not confused, I'm an apatheist libertarian.

    Wow seriously? How is socialism a form of government. You can have socialism in a democracy, in a monarchy, and even a totalitarian state.

    Which the USA is neither one of those.
    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    I believe that there is no real way we can label our governing system accurately to be honest... I think that our government structure has been and continues to be an ever evolving one. I feel that the reason democracy lasted as long as it has in America is due to the fact that it was beneficial to the most powerful people in America. I think we will cease to be a democracy as soon as this system no longer suits the desire of those individuals.

    It's an Oligarchy, not a democracy.
