First of all, technically, isn't the United States of America a mix of both worlds, democracy AND republic? In school, my teacher said that this was partially true, because we don't leave EVERYTHING up to the people. The government does a lot of work, too. So, WHAT IS IT exactly? I'm not saying this is true, I'm just asking.
The US of A is a capitalist government. Every decision is made based on money.I dont mean that "big businesses control the government, ITS A BIG CONSPIRACY!" kind of talk, but it indirectly affects the way the government makes decisions. If that makes sense.


I bow before the spoon.
