Comment: No, a democratic republic is

(See in situ)

No, a democratic republic is

No, a democratic republic is not mutually exclusive. Even the Romans had a democratic republic to an extent. Different sections of society got to vote for different parts of the republican leaders.

Just because the popular vote picks certain leaders doesn't mean it is totally democratic. It is a republic because certain sections of society elect people to represent them.

So, yes we ARE a democratic REPUBLIC. I'm not sure why you are arguing with me on this. It is quite obvious. We are a democratic republic.... would you rather us be an Oligarchic republic?

How should we elect our leaders? We are a democratic republic and if you can think of a better way of doing things than our founders then please be my guest and say so.....
