The United States of America is a Republic, NOT a Democracy. Anyone who tells you we live in a Democracy is lying to you. More than likely, it’s a Democrat (Democratic Socialist) telling you that. Ask a Republican they are more likely to tell you the truth:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
I pledge allegiance to our Republic. Don’t you dare call it a Democracy. We may do certain things democratically, but we are a Republic, governed by the rule of law.
The Constitution of the United States created a Republic.
The Constitution of the Communist Party USA creates a Democracy.
