 Ooops! I hadn't noticed. I must have accedentally pressed the L button twice, I am not a good typer, and yes at times I don't pay enough attention to my spelling.

No I'm pretty sure its considered a republic.
The US = Representative democracy.



*Sigh*, incorrect. Please study your own government.

The United States is a constitutional republic, with the representatives to the legislatures determined through a democratic process. Over the past several hundred years the United States has become an increasingly federalized power, but it is still a republic- the individual states are simply losing more and more of their power.
I'm still going to go with what i've been learning in US Government for the past month.


Then your teacher needs to be fired for incompetence. Democracy is the process by which representatives are elected. It is NOT the form of government.



CIA World Factbook:

Government type: 
Constitution-based federal republic; strong democratic tradition

Wikipedia:

The United States is the longest-surviving extant constitutional republic, with the oldest wholly written constitution in the world. Its government operates as a representative democracy through a congressional system under a set of powers specified by its Constitution.
It says right in what you posted that it operates as a representative democracy. How am I wrong in saying that the US is not representative democracy when Kristopher said the US isn't?
I need a new Sig...

Because the United States is a constitutional republic. The Government operates as a representative democracy- ie, that is the means by which the legislature is appointed. The nation of the United States of America, however, is a constitutional republic- that's the system, whereas democracy is a process within that system.

Yup, he actually said that.
