Yeah, I agree. Someone's been miss-nameing countries for a long time. There was never one republic in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The People's Republic of China is not a republic nor a comunist country. It is a totalitarian dictatorship. The Republublic of the Congo and most all other "Republic's of..." are puppet dictatorships. So it is no wonder that these united States of America are called demoracies instead of a republics, just as the union is called a country in light of the fact that the Union is just that... a union of 50 nations, and the Unitsd States is their international corporat agent.
