    While I agree that you don't want to have too big and powerful of a government, a Confederacy isn't really a good idea either. The Articles of Confederation was so ineffective that it almost caused the US to implode before they even got going. This is actually an interesting debate brought up in the Leia book Star Wars Bloodline, Leia and some others are the "Populist" who believe in more power to the independent systems (not fully independent but more so) so as not to allow a massive central totalitarian to take power again. Then there were the "centrists" who believed the idea of the Empire (a strong central powerful government) was key to order. So with all that said I would still be for the Republic but if I lived in the Galaxy far far away I would hate to have a Palpatine as leader and would prefer to have a less powerful chancellor.

    Yes the middle ground is always the best in my opinion. The articles were terrible, with different currency exchanges, and tariffs. However, as a planet in this case, you want to keep your sovereignty. Not to be governed by a far away system. That is why it is a republic, ruled by representatives. That is ideal, but not what it became. Ideally yes I would prefer a Republic.

    Republic though from a Gerreraist perspective. Defeat the confederacy, then fight the Empire.

    CIS. As a Texan, I'm naturally predisposed towards a group that wants to cast off the chains of an oppressive and overreaching government. And one side of the war decided it was totally fine to use human lives as disposable tools simply because of how they were born. I can't support that.

    Hail to the CIS, and not just for the droids (though they are pretty cool). Because of the Republic's indifference and Core World favoritism, Outer Rim worlds can't get the resources they need. Shady corporates and criminal syndicates continually strong-arm these worlds in order to get what they want. The Outer Rim needs support, and the protection of a strong army in order to prosper.

    Central authority doesn't work on a Galactic scale, and causes core world favoritism. A confederacy where all worlds are equal is the best way to ensure prosperity and freedom. Also, there's that whole Human High Culture thing. Why do you think most Separatists are non-humans?

    I'm actually working on a fanfiction like that for the Separatists.

    CIS, they had legitimate reasons for leaving. Had Dooku and Palpatine not screwed up things for the normal citizens they could've had their way.

    Neither, because both sides are just pawns to Palpatine.

    even with the corruption, the ideology of Democracy and Freedom that the Republic had is better than a deceitful oligarchy ruling over you

    In theory I would stay neutral because I like independent systems. However if you are on your own there is the risk that someone conquers your planet or system, therefore I would join the galactic republic. It is a matter of safety combined with trade routes. Being a member of the republic (but also the separatists after all) grants you new trade routes and access to other technologies. But if I have to choose a faction I would go with the republic, despite I like the droideka quite a lot.:D

    I voted for the Republic because I just love the loyalty and passion of the clone troopers compared to the basic droids. Also I love the Jedi over The Sith. But, thinking about it, the irony of the whole Clone Wars and whatnot is that most of us viewers know that in the end, the clones will betray the Jedi in Order 66. But still, during the clone wars, the clones are funny, creative, and ironically quite different from each other considering they are CLONES. But one thing about the Clone Wars that makes it harder to pick a side here is that both sides were basically controlled by puppet strings. I mean, Palpatine was the Chancellor and the Sith Lord, as well as being Dooku’s Master, as Dooku was the leader of the droid army before being killed, so Palps controlled both sides of the war. So both sides were almost fake but not quite. Any way, I feel that the Movies and Shows represented the Republic as the “good guys with good intentions” So, if I had to choose, it would be the Republic :)
