    Well... considering they DID NOT CREATE A FUCKING DEMOCRACY... and they held things such as private property rights in high regard, the question pretty much answers itself

    LOL yup!

    blew up right in TM's face like she said it would... Or wait, she said it would be the other way! I guess it's true, always assume TM has the wrong answer.

    The very defintions of the words show that a republiic is a type of democracy.


    See them twist and turn to avoid answering the question?


    They know they answer but cant go on record to the reality of what the founders left us.
