The United States is not a Democracy!
We are a Republic..!!!!
It's hard to figure out a nation's direction when many or most citizens don't even understand the rules.
A republic is a form of government in which power resides in the people and the government is ruled by elected leaders run according to law rather than inherited or appointed (such as through inheritance or divine mandate).
In modern times the definition of a republic is also commonly limited to a government which excludes a monarch.
135 of the world's 206 sovereign states use the word "republic" as part of their official names.
