"Liberal Democracy and Constitutional Republic are not the same thing." -- illiberal talking point Hasn't this false meme been beaten back enough to slink away with its tail between its legs YET? And so, here we go: "Liberal democracy is a liberal political ideology and a form of government in which representative democracy operates under the principles of classical liberalism. Also called western democracy... it may be a constitutional monarchy (Australia, Belgium, Canada, Japan, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom) or a republic (France, India, Ireland, the United States). It may have a parliamentary system (Australia, Canada, India, Ireland and the United Kingdom), a presidential system (Indonesia and the United States), or a semi-presidential system (France)." ( Liberal democracy - Wikipedia ) There was once a reason good people fled to the United States of America, and many of us still consider this our home. It seems we have some trash to take out, some tired old exploitative memes seem to have sprung up like so many feral weeds. "In the United States, liberalism took a strong root because it had little opposition to its ideals, whereas in Europe liberalism was opposed by many reactionary or feudal interests such as the nobility, the aristocracy, the landed gentry, the established church and the aristocratic army officers..." ( Classical liberalism - Wikipedia ) Sorry if I sound irritated, you'd think pointing this out once would be sufficient for the world, but it seems one has to mow the law or swim against a current just to stay in place. As if by design. Thanks for being their tool and wasting our time with their false memes.
