Right on, thats an excellent point

Thats a constant irritation of mine, we hear the media and the politicians refer to our system of government as a Democracy. Is it that they don't know the difference, or do they want the populace to be uninformed? I get the feeling that as long as they can get the people to think we are a Democracy, they will accept majority rule, with no limitations on government. A Republic limits the role of government, huge difference.
