Many people confuse type with form. They aren’t the same. Our type of government is Republic. Meaning that there is no monarch or other strong man. Our form of government is Representive Democracy which is clearly laid out in the constitution.

Democracy in what sense? The word democracy was never used in the Constitution to my knoweledege. There is no universal right to vote. The states can restrict voting on a whole host of requirements and qualifications. Save those restricting discrimination in the Constitution. Race, Sex, etc.

Sorry- from first grade I am taught that the USA is a republic. Anybody who can read can determine that there are not the words in Section 4.

We do not need private interpretation of the Constitution. Even a fifth grader can see that these are not the same words.

Show me where do the words ``representative democracy`` occur in the Constitution!!!

``Article 4, Section 4 Republican Government ...a Republican Form of Government...``

US immigration Sercvice:= ``The Constitution establishes a system of government called “REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY`

The word ``republic`` is nowhere mentioned in the US Immigration booklet.

Thus they are not even using the words of the constitution to teach newly-to-be citizens. What the h is this crap?

To tell someone that a legal document has something in it but omits the words and verbally substitutes another word as true is fraud. Are you going to call this country a ``constitutional democracy`` as India does?? Or a democracy, but not a republic as Australia calls itself?? Give me a break!!

Now you want to redefine the US Constitution and the country? My family has been here since 1648 and we have always been taught by our teachers in school that we live in a republic.

If one does not want to uphold the Constitution, which, as one can read, is made up of WORDS!!- then find another constitution in another country but leave the U.S. Constitution alone!!

I will not dance to a new tune nor sing a new song.
