tell us why you believe it is or is not.
Tell us why you need to be taught (again) the 9th grade level basics of our govt.
then teach if you think you have some facts.
I wonder why none of the right are rushing in to say we are NOT a democracy?
Well, it's not a matter of belief, it's a matter of fact. We are a Republic. At an elementary level, the main difference between the two is that in a direct democracy everyone has a say in all decisions and the majority rules. In a Republic, people elect others to make those decisions on their behalf and there are sometimes protections in place to prevent the majority from trampling over the minority.
This is why you don't ever waste time proving anything to TM, she refuses to learn. It's wasting time.
Its a representative republic...... so no its not a (true) democracy.
Maybe most have you on ignore?
