The USA is a Republic. Maybe a few history lessons will help you there, barefooty.<quoted text>
Britain isn't a country.
The UK is a monarchy.
The USA is a democracy- a representative democracy.
a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.
In other words, chosen by vote of the people and/or an electoral college.
democracy (dɪˈm 94;krəsɪ)
1. government by the people or their elected representatives
2. a political or social unit governed ultimately by all its members
3. the practice or spirit of social equality
4. a social condition of classlessness and equality
The USA is definitely not this!
