Ha, right you are! I guess I should brush up on my own political science and US History!

I guess we are supposed to be a Constitutional Republic who adhere to the principles of democracy, at least in theory if not always in practice; However, the European model is being aped by the left, and the Republic is being left behind.

Good for you for knowing your facts so well. ;)

Forgot to add : we are a representative democracy within the framework of a Constitutional Republic. But you are right— we ain’t a direct democracy and are nothing without the Republic.
