The phrase "we are a republic, not a democracy" that I see so often on Youtube and hear even some of my friend say is somewhat true.

But I digress, the phrase is also grossly inaccurate.

To most people and me, saying that USA is not a democracy simply doesn't make any sense. USA IS a democratic country because it has elections, and voting procedures. But You can point out that it is a specific type of democracy, Constitutional Republic.

China can be considered a democracy because there are voting there, but their constitution isn't really followed at all.

So saying we are NOT a democracy doesn't make any sense, but that The united states isn't no SIMPLY a democracy makes much more sense.
