Its the leftists that keep blathering on about some mythical democracy

The rest of us continue to correct them and point out that the the US and its state gov's fall into the category of being a republic.

Heck the US Constitution even goes so far as to "Guarantee each of the states a republican form of gov"........

The closest the US gets to democracy is that SOME (not all) of elected officials are directly elected by citizens

Thats as far as democracy goes in the US
