A good illustration explaining that we are not, in fact a democracy (and never were), but a republic and the difference. And how a republic, if it does not limit the government's powers, will turn into a democracy and ultimately an oligarchy (such as ancient Rome and it fell).

It makes me very glad to see more and more of these sorts of productions. It also makes me glad to see more and more people promoting them.

At this point, since our government IS an oligarchy now, we can only hope to use the power of a democracy to reinstate our Republic.

We're not an oligarchy... yet. We're a plutocracy at this point (if I had to give my opinion of our current state). I think lobbyist and special interest groups really hold more power via money than anyone wants to admit.

This video should be mandatory for all Americans. IMO.

There's a lot of Construction workers and other able bodied souls looking for work right now, no? Gather them all up surrounding D.C. We'll wall it off and no one gets in or out ala John Carpenter. Topeka shall be the new American capitol.
