    The word republic is meaningless when it comes to forms of government

    exactly, plus 'republic' is noun, the terms democratic and authoritarian are adjectives

    There is nothing like a good morning "troll" through the swamp on a Sunday midmorning.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States

    What? Your fingers broken? The US is a "federal republic" as defined in its founding documents such as the Untied States Constitution. Simply read Article 4, Section 4, Clause 1 of the US Constitution....even a monkey can comprehend this simple 8th grade level text. "The United States shall GUARANTEE to every state in the union (the United States of America) a REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT.

    The BIG LIE? The FALSE PREMISE...the US is a democracy is easily debunked by simply reading from the Federalist Papers

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Federalist_Papers

    These documents were a collection of articles drafted by Hamilton, Madison, and John Jay...with the purpose of explaining why the Constitution contains certain guarantees, these papers were used to promote the ratification process that demanded a 75% super majority of states representation to confirm the Contract agreement among THE STATES called the US Constitution. FYI: the constitution does not belong to federal government to be used to hit the states over the head like a hammer.....the constitution belongs to THE PEOPLE/STATES that ratified this agreement.

    What did Madison have to say about REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT v. a DEMOCARY?

    Federalist No. 10 States that the more this republic begins to look like a democracy the greater danger is its total collapse because there has never been a successful example of a pure democracy in world history.....democracies, mob rules are not compatible with individual freedom and liberty and have no respect for the rights of the property owner...and they always end in violent revolution.

    If you are promoting the false premise that the US is a democracy.....you are nothing but an Alinsky radical socialist that demands that the Government control all things...to include YOUR OWN LIBERTY.

    A perfect example of Madison's wisdom. Look toward Europe.....the majority of which call themselves a Democracy....HOW MANY VIOLENT REVOLUTIONS HAVE THESE NATIONS SEE OVER THE SAME TIME PERIOD THE US HAS BEEN GOVERNED AS A REPUBLIC? Over a 250 yr. period the nations of Europe have underwent "6" violent revolutions. Madison hit the nail on the head.

    Wrong....a FEDERAL REBUCLIC....as defined in the US CONSTITUTION and the FEDERALIST PAPERS. Still not wanting to READ the documented truth? "The United States shall guarantee to every state a REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT." -- Article 4, Section 4, Clause 1

    Federalist Government: The combining of several units to from one common entity for the protection of the whole. The primary reason for forming a federal republic? To form a standing army that would protect all the states when called to duty....that is the primary reason for the existence of a Centralized Federal Government....to do what a single state cannot do, protection and infrastructure to allow interstate trade. Its not a WELFARE STATE....the general welfare concerns of society rests entirely with the individual states. Read the Constitution.

    The United States is a Representative Republic, not a democracy you moron. The Founding Fathers specifically avoided establishing a Democracy.

    Lord you're an idiot.

    The United States is not a democracy — and it wasn't meant to be one
    https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign...eant-to-be-one

    Contrary to catchy slogans, memes and other slick forms of electioneering, the government of the United States was never intended to be a pure democracy. In fact, most of the institutions today’s activists complain about were designed to thwart the pernicious effects of too much democracy. They’re anti-democratic by design. Rather than flaws that require remedy, these institutions were (and are) essential safeguards for individual liberty.

    The Framers knew that in its pure form democracy could be dangerous. The writings of the founding era are replete with warnings of this fact:

    • “Real liberty is not found in the extremes of democracy, but in moderate governments,” Alexander Hamilton wrote. “If we incline too much to democracy we shall soon shoot into a monarchy, or some other form of a dictatorship.”
    • Thomas Jefferson lamented that “a democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where 51 percent of the people may take away the rights of the other 49.”
    • James Madison argued that democracies “have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”
    • John Adams concluded that democracy “never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”

    Despite what many of today’s activists would have us believe, the anti-democratic institutions of the American Republic are just as vital now as they were over 200 years ago.
