    Look at Greece today. How long did democracy last? 200 years?

    I believe the 10 commandments were given to Abraham who became the father of the Jews first. Ishmael was his son too and he became the father of Islam.

    d. totally agree that the commandments are basic rules of common sense and decency. Could a case be made that the commandments came before decency? Can you have democracy without decency?

    Love it when people understand the US is a Republic. While reading my son's history book I discovered they don't teach that anymore.

    Democracy is the best available today. the alternatives in the U.S. are theocracy or the current plutocracy, both of which do not serve the people. True Democracy can only work with the use of fundamental human/equal rights w/o religious influences
