An Important Distinction: Democracy versus Republic


Contrary to popular belief and the spread of misinformation by the media, the United States is not a democracy
.
We reside in a constitutional representative republic - "We are a government of laws, not of men"
President John Adams


These two forms of government: Democracy and Republic, are not only dissimilar but antithetical, reflecting the sharp contrast between (a) The Majority Unlimited, in a Democracy, lacking any legal safeguard of the rights of The Individual and The Minority, and (b) The Majority Limited, in a Republic under a written Constitution safeguarding the rights of The Individual and The Minority; as you will see here: www.lexrex.com
