get it straight
Hello,whomever,I'm sitting here at 3 .30am,when one of my favorite topics came to mind,that being ancient ROME,as i was thinking about it,i recalled a phrase the Caesar [played by Richard Harris one of the most moving actors of our time],to his general played by Russel Crowe,who did an excellent portrayal,he was telling Russel how Rome was formed as a republic,and how he wanted to make him his predecessor after his death,and return Rome back to the people. Well I pulled out my funk and wagnalls school dictionary to see exactualy what a republic is defined as,here it is,"A state in which the sovereignty resides in the people or a certain portion of the people,and the legislative and administrative powers are lodged in officers elected by and representing the people".Interesting?So, naturally i looked up Democracy,and here it is,"A form of government in which political power resides in all the people and is exercized by them directly."HMMMMM. you know what i mean?GIANFRANCO FRONZI dec 7 2006 sleep tight.
