about the distinction between a democracy and a republic.
Yes, determining any outcome by majority wins voting is a democratic process. The following is a VERY stripped down explanation:

If a citizenry determines a legislature by way of majority wins voting, then you have a republic. (The legislature make laws for society.)

If a citizenry determines the laws themselves by way of majority wins voting, then you have a democracy.(The voting citizenry make laws for society)

In one instance, the citizenry is determining a legislature (republic) in the other, the citizenry is determining the law (democracy).

A constitution can enumerate powers or not. (I believe they should and those powers should be very specific and extremely limited.)

In addition, a constitution need not be limited to a republic. Any mechanism of government can be spelled out on a charter.

Keep it up, I'd be happy to discuss this further if you wish. Contact me directly if you want to hash it out in private.
