The words Democracy, Democratic and Democrat are not mentioned anywhere in the US Constitution or any of the founding documents but the word Republican is. Note the first part of the sentence in Article IV Section 4. "Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence." The Liberals have been brainwashing us for many years by telling us we are a Democracy. No, we are a Constitutional Republic. Note in the Pledge of Allegiance "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands". Also Benjamin Franklin when asked what form of Government do we have he replied, "A Republic if you can keep it".
