Don't be too harsh on the OP, according to our leaders and media we are a democracy, and believe that freedom only comes through democracy. When have you ever heard a politician preach about the republic (besides SOTUA), or the media speaking about countries needing "republics" or anything? We are a republic that uses a form of representative democracy (correct me if I am wrong), but you'll be hard pressed to know that unless you paid attention in school. With the dumbing down of our society (calculated) and the endless rhetoric about democracy it's not hard to the see reasons for confusion.edit on 26-9-2011 by Chewingonmushrooms because: (no reason given)

Its amazing how misinformed people can be about their own government, I always get annoyed when people spout off democracy as a good thing. Its mob rule.
Must be a reason for the constant misrepresentation of the type of government we have here in the US...
The human civilization in Sumer was set up under the guidance of the Anunnaki, and to disguise alien manipulation, human Kings were inaugurated to provide intermediaries between mankind and their "so called" Gods.
In a Republic, the Majority is Limited and constrained by a written Constitution which protects the rights of the Individual and the Minority. The purpose of a Republic form of government is to control the Majority and to protect the God-given, inalienable rights and liberty of the Individual.
