It's interesting that when you want to attack a 'liberal' (whatever vile thing that might be), you 'non-liberals' fall back on technical political distinctions. But when you want to attack a country, you justify it in the name of Democracy - not Representative Republics. I think a commitment to Democracy as a value is something we can both share - and use as a yardstick to evaluate events and statements.
