Random musing...

I am beginning to drift around to the opinion that "Actually, we're a republic, not a democracy" is the libertarian/constitutionalist equivalent to the gun nuts' "Actually, it's a magazine, not a clip."

It's technically correct, but is likely to put off more people with its pedantry than it persuades with its precision. Some points of doctrine are best expounded once they've already converted to the faith.
