Full Donald Trump Delivers Economy Policy Speech! June 28th 2016 Part 1




Commonwealth is a traditional English term for a political community founded for the common good. Historically it has sometimes been synonymous with "republic".

The English noun "commonwealth" in the sense meaning "public welfare; general good or advantage" dates from the 15th century. The original phrase "the common-wealth" or "the common weal" (echoed in the modern synonym "public weal") comes from the old meaning of "wealth", which is "well-being", and is itself a loose translation of the Latin res publica (republic). The term literally meant "common well-being". In the 17th century the definition of "commonwealth" expanded from its original sense of "public welfare" or "commonweal" to mean "a state in which the supreme power is vested in the people; a republic or democratic state". "Better things were done, and better managed ... under a Commonwealth than under a King." Pepys, Diary (1667)

Three countries – Australia, the Bahamas, and Dominica – have the official title "Commonwealth", as do four US states and two US territories. More recently, the term has been used for fraternal associations of some sovereign nations, most notably the Commonwealth of Nations, an association primarily of former members of the British Empire, which is often referred to as simply "the Commonwealth".

  1. These watches draw their power not from breitling replica size or complications, but from the innumerable subtleties of the bracelet, bezel, and case. A 14790 mid-size rado replica uk harnesses all three to great effect. AP aficionados looking for an authentic Royal Oak experience need look no farther. The dial of the Royal Oak 14790 captures the same essential aesthetic of its fake hublot 39mm counterpart. With a waffle-like “tapisserie” pattern cut on a pantograph apparatus at traditional supplier Stern Creations omega replica (yes, those Sterns), the 14790 features the same visual signature and craft content of the famed “Jumbo.” Regarding size, neither the original 39mm nor the 36mm 14790 are in step with the high end of modern rolex replica proportions. But the 14790 shares its larger predecessor’s habit of wearing larger than its nominal hublot replica measurements.
