    "Representative democracy" to be more accurate, i believe, with the "Presidential republic" variation.

    Trump's war with the GOP leadership fits well into his campaign strategy of attacking the establishment which seems to be everyone but Trump and his followers.

    Trump's latest fit over the RNC rules is a call to solidify his base. After all ,every true Trump supporter knows that leadership in government, political parties, and big corporations are corrupt. Funny, how they never think of Trump as part of that establishment.

    Lobbying delegates is nothing but deal making. Why then is it then that Donald Trump, the self proclaimed greatest deal maker in the world is unable to out deal Ted Cruz. Both work under exactly the same rules established by each state and are pursuing the same delegates. If Trump can't out deal Ted Cruz, he sure as shit isn't going to be able to out deal China, Russia, or even the congress.

    Yes, the USA is a Republican nation, as is the Islamic Republic of Iran!
    Both are considered "Presidential Republics" in this map:

    Rarely if ever hear people use the phrase
    "presidential republic"

    But let us not belabor the point

    Ironic how Trump supporters like eagle1462010 attempt to argue against the opinion in the op-ed, and end up reinforcing the point I made about Trump's defenders supporting Trump with nothing more than bumper sticker slogans

    Yawn..........calling me out for attention............pretty lame there Mr. Op Ed...............

    You either believe the people should decide who leads this country or you don't. We the People don't really have a voice anymore when the 2 parties rig the deck to decide for us.......

    If you don't understand that.........then you are hopeless and don't believe in what this country is supposed to be about...........but please continue with your BS.......because that is all it is anyway.

    Except the GOP primaries are about who will lead the GOP, not the nation.
