    •  it means... (0+ / 0-)

      a Republic (in which sovereign people - you know, those pesky "We, the People", folks) have access to actual facts via a free press (vice one in which 90% of the media is controlled by 6 corporations in turn controlled by less than 400 individuals) which prints factual information (vice propaganda - see: http://thomas.loc.gov/... ) and have free and fair elections to select folks who will represent them vice the same 400 individuals who currently control both major parties and the aforementioned 90% of media.

      In so doing, the people spell out what the government CANNOT do to them via a written constitution which a judiciary interprets in accordance with how it was written and adopted by those same "We, the People", not in accordance with how these unelected justices think IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN written (as they are selected from and by the same oligarchy which controls the media, the government including the judiciary).
