What is a REPUBLIC ?


1. political system with elected representatives: a political system or form of government in which people elect representatives to exercise power for them


2. state with elected representatives: a country or other political unit whose government or political system is that of a republic


3. unit within larger country: a constituent political and territorial unit of a national federation or union


4. group with collective interests: a group of people who are considered to be equals and who have a collective interest, objective, or vocation ( formal )


By definition, a republic is a political unit governed by a charter, while a democracy is a government whose prevailing force is always that of the majority. Perhaps one of the difficulties in defining these two words — democracy and republic — stems from the fact that many people consider them to be synonyms, which they aren’t. They are no more alike than an apple and a banana, and yet they are often used interchangeably


A Democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can exist only until the voters discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury.  From that moment on, the public always votes for the candidate who promises the most benefits out of the public treasury, with the result that Democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy, always to be followed by a Dictatorship.



That Said: It should be noted that we are a Republic 'not' a Democracy.
