Between you and Clayface, I'm wondering what it is about drugs that makes you sympathetic to terrorists.

When was I sympathetic to Terrorists?

would you consider his death an assassination or a murder?
and why?  we were discussing this in the irc until celdur started to cry

Not support, just a dumb question caused by not knowing what you were talking about.  Which is the same thing as Detox, just not nearly as bad.

Inkling isnt democracy based on the fact that ANYONE should get a fair jurisdiction.
And don't you find the reaction of the white house strange, you know how they are not showing the body, and they dump it into the ocean.
I want to see the truth.
So youre happy Osama is dead, what did it cost? the lives of more than 20000 civilians dead in afghanistan and also some soldiers who died there too. I can be really happy about that

America isn't a democracy

This is true. We're a Republic.

No.

NO.

This is the argument of right-wing nutjobs. Please refrain from using it. America is a Democracy. Your head of state is elected democratically. Having a democratically elected head of state is one of the features of a republic.

Also, to add weight to the people arguing against detox's point. Osama was not a citizen of the USA and was not entitiled to any rights as such.

Also, is the American government did release photos of the corpse then that wouldn't have any impact on the number of people saying Obama isn't dead. Conspiracy theorists don't respond to logic or reason.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

No, the US is a Republic. We have a popular vote, but this is not the mechanism that ultimately decides who wins. Meet our Electoral College. It has resulted in several previous winning candidates being elected despite losing the popular vote. Also, our Parties are called Democrats and Republicans, but that doesn't mean they represent the ideas of a Democracy and a Republic, its just a naming convention that goes back a long time. Republicans that point this out aren't spouting propaganda, they're just ignorant.

Also, lol obama isnt dead.

I thought a republic was generally defined as having gotten rid of a monarchy/monarchy influence and is therefore inherently democratic by concept?

To further add to the damned if they did, damned if they didn't, what if Osama had been brought to the US?

Fox News Pundit: "What the hell was Obama thinking - bringing bin Laden to America? For a trial? This man orchastrated the deaths of thousands! And we're going give him a fair trial? Did the soldiers read him his Miranda rights? No? Well, what happens when that comes up at the trial? Will they let him go? Let him continue killing? What the hell was he thinking?"

United States Was Founded as a Constitutional Republic and Not a Democracy

constitutional republic--a political structure under which the government is bound by a written constitution to the task of protecting individual rights.

Why are people still posting in this thread? I thought he is dead!
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

The two are not mutually exclusive.

That article can't even get the definition of democracy right.

But for serial we need to get rid of the electoral college. Useless institution that impedes the will of the 'merican people!

Man, don't even go there; I'm communist, not fascist. I have nothing to do with those monsters on the right.
