I didnt get any feeling that we needed a republican president from this video. The fact that you did, shows something about your ability to decypher information.
The video was about how we are not a democracy, we never were. That most forms of government, NOT POLITICAL PARTIES, boil down into two forms of government over time, oligarchy and republics.
The point of the video was to:
1. point out that extreme leftist views, on the two sided scale, is totalitarian. The right, on the two sided scale, is anarchy.
2. That democracies and anarchy do not last, and will turn into oligarchy.
3. Monarchies and Dictatorships do not exist, since no one man ever truly leads. they all have their advisors and such.
4. You only really have two stable permanent forms of government. Republics and Oligarchy, which do you want?

wow, what a beautiful piece of propaganda for the republican party. Everytime they speak of republic or the word republic(which our mind jumps to republican automatical), why do I hear church music, and angel trumpets in the backround? Comeon, music tactics to gain the proper emotions your "trying to get, stretching it a bit.
Hmm, so they should re-name republics to something that doesn't sound like Republican?
Turns out it is true that this country is supposed to be a republic. The theme of this video is that TOO MUCH government control (repressive laws, taxation, social engineering such as welfare) ruin the functionality of a republic.

Lay out the basic forms of government and what they mean. Around the 9 minute mark is where it pretty much sums up where America is right now.
