In reply to comment: This is a Democratic Republic (see in situ)


In a republic, part of the law is that you have representative government.
Therefor there are some similarities to some forms of democracy.

But the United States is not a Republic or a Democratic Republic.
Our election systems are influenced so much by factors other than the pure values and wishes of the people that it cannot even fairly be called representative anymore.
And then one has to ask, because it is no longer representative, is it even still a republic? The answer is no. A republic must be opposed axiomatically to any monarchic or oligarchic system of rule by the prevailing money nobility.
