Help me understand something, if you will. Why do I hear, very often, that the United States is a democracy? We are not a democracy, we are a republic.
For a long time I have wondered why we are referred to this way.
Chew on that for a while as I research more fully the differences between the two  descriptions.
I do know this. The United States of America is a constitutional republic, not a democracy, as is so often quoted, even by those who represent us.
I’ll get back to you soon with an honest understanding of the differences.
