    Nah. Electoral collage was made, because the founding fathers feared a Democractic-mob.

    I'm talking in part about better articulation as pertains to navigating the semantics. For example it's confusing to read "All I said was that God has appointed another person to rule one satans of kingdoms (america)". While I get where you're coming from in a deterministic perspective, it still can be misconstrued as an assertion that God and Satan share the same agenda.

    Moreover and with that in mind, your words carry the sentiment that one should not celebrate a change in leadership because despite their differences they're both Satanic. Such a generalization however would not account for Godly victories such as relief for those desperate families languishing across the border whose hopes and prayers are in finding sanctuary in America.

    What ?

    We have a democratic process for electing representatives. Representatives are elected by the people of the districts in the state and Senators elected by all the voters of the state. A minority is represented as much as anyone in the state.

    Not sure where you live, but the representatives in my state were elected in a democratic process.

    That's just semantics.

    We have a democratic process in choosing representatives.

    The nation as a whole, is a Republic, not a Democracy in the purest sense of the word.

    Not really. There is a distinction to be made. It may not be inherent in the term itself, but some use it to mean elective government as opposed to various other types of governments, while other people think of it as meaning what we'd otherwise call "Pure Democracy."

    So that's not a lot different from other words we use often which have more than one meaning. In this case, it just requires us to know which meaning the speaker is thinking of. ;)

    The nation as a whole, is a Republic, not a Democracy in the purest sense of the word.[/QUOTE]

    Okay. I see which of the two meanings you think is the more precise. ;)

    Well, I prefer to call it a "democratic republic", but that's just me I guess, but if you google that and those two words together (and I looked at Wikipedia, etc) it just seems to make the most sense, and I think just more accurately describes "our specific government", etc, but in the end, I guess it might just all be semantics, etc...

    God Bless!

    A "democratic process" in electing representatives doesn't mean the nation is governed as a "pure" democracy. It's still a republic, but the states themselves elect their leaders through a democratic process. Also, the state representatives vote in Congress in a democratic process. Again, as a nation, we still remain a Republic, i.e. a representative form of government.

    The Constitution established the United States as a democratic republic. It is democratic because the people govern themselves, and it is a republic because the government’s power is derived from its people. https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default...ediate_RightsandResponsibilities_handouts.pdf

    Try catching up to reality.

    Joe Biden won and will be the next president of the United States.

    You may not like it, but it's the reality that has taken place.

    It is November 8, 2020.

    Joe Biden is still not President Elect.

    Neither Was Al Gore at this same time in his failed run.

    On the contrary, a lot of people do that, precisely in order to head off being misunderstood.

    Technically, you are correct.

    Theoretically, he is and will be anyway.

    Not the same.

    Gore vs Bush was about one state, Florida and Gore wanted a recount in just the democratic strongholds. The SCOTUS essentially said no, recount the entire state or nothing.

    This time around, Trump is making claims of fraud that even Republicans in those states say are false.

    Have they presented evidence that it is false? Does the Pa. supreme court have the power/authority to over turn an approved legislative law that says all ballots must be in by 8PM election day? The constitution gives no court such authority.
