We are a REPRESENTATIVE Republic - unlike China and...

...other "republics."

That is the key.

Our form of republic (which simply means rule by LAW - not MAJORITY as in a democracy) uses representatives put there by the people.

In those communistic type of republics the leaders muscle their way in by some other means.

Personally I think many are mis-named as republic but that can be debated.
