Stop saying Democracy!

(This is a repost from another website that I had published it on previously)
America is not now, nor has ever been, a DEMOCRACY! It was founded as and continues to be a Representative Republic. It is based on democratic principles, but it is not a democracy. We don't vote directly on the laws of the land, we have a House of REPRESENTATIVES and a Senate of elected officials that vote directly and we vote for them to represent us. Even the president is elected by the Electoral College, not by popular vote. When did people start thinking we live in a democracy? Doesn't every child in America learn the Pledge of Allegiance? (well, at least we all did when I was growing up) The Pledge states: "I pledge allegiance to the Flag and to the REPUBLIC on which it stands..."
Seriously people, its not rocket science.
