Not sure if where this would fit best but figure this will work. For better or worse we go around and play globocop and when we dont like the governmet running a country we replace it. Now what I keep wondering about is the fact that when these new governments we build are discussed, it is talked about us bringing democracy to them. To many folks fail to know the difference and think that WE are a democracy instead of knowing that we are a constitutional republic and the only placedemocracy is realy a part of it is in that it is with democraticaly elected representation. A lot of folks are under the misconception that the diffrence is merely scemantics rather than realizeing that in a democracy 51% of the people trample the rights of the rest where in a constitutional republic the power of government is limited and the rights of ALL the people are protected by the constitution. So what I keep wondering about is, when we keep hearing about us bringing democracy to these other countries, is it that the speakersare misinformed/ignorant and think that the difference is mere semantics and 'democracy' is a more convenient word or better sound byte when we are actualy modeling the new governments after our own and creating constitutional republics with democraticaly elected representation or are we ACTUALY building democraceys where as long as 51% of the people who vote can do as they please with, to, over all the rest of the people legaly under their government?
