Do you even know what a Democracy is, or do you just hate the word because it has the same first six letters of Democrat?
So you say that the country is not a Democracy, because you hate Democrats, and would call it a Republic, because it contains the first eight letters of Republican.
But DO YOU KNOW what a Republic really is?
If you did, you would have to go back to the word Democracy.
It's not a pure Democracy, that's true. A Republic is more of what one would call a Representative Democracy.
This is what happens when your talking heads who speak in your echo chamber politicize even words to describe our system of government.
You cannot have a republic, if your representatives are not democratically elected.
You wouldn't want PURE Democracy. It would mean the people would have to mull over every boring detail and make a decision on those details.
But you wouldn't want a Republic that's not a Democracy either.
So any way, glad I could assist you with a much needed civics lesson.
This one is on the house, but further learning will cost you.... the price of ... a BOOK..
