    It annoys me when people point this out. The US is a democratic republic. It isn’t a direct democracy, but it IS a type of democracy.

    This is one of the most importanat things we must educate the rest of our citizens with. Rule of Law not majority. This is very informative. Too many people are afraid of freedom because it allows not only them to have it but also their neighbors whom they don’t control.
