What we have always been, and what we remain is a democratic republic.
We just need to learn to hold those holding the reigns to higher standards.
Actually, the United States tends not to use the term "democratic republic," because, historically, that was used by communist and/or post-colonial countries. The United States is a federal constitutional republic that holds democratic elections.

It looks visible to me... unless someone else put it back. I only moved off-topic posts and never touched yours.

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
Where do you live? I have enjoyed my world travels very much, but I love it in the States. It's just thrilling to live here.
I live in NC and I am from Georgia. I think I posted this comment in the wrong thread. I was referring to these comments:
Spamtar said "I think we have a great country and our propoganda only lowers it."
and Victor said "It's bad enough that the Americans believe their own propaganda but they expect us to believe it too."
I think American laws regarding guns are fine really, the US population has had a culture of guns and thus generally knows how to responsibly use them (of course there are exceptions) but I don't support relaxing Gun Control laws in countries which do not have that culture.
