Republic Government

A republic is a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives. It has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.

Pure democracy is nothing more than an emotional, tyrannical rule by the mob. Our founders rejected it and so should we, according to our Constitution.

Still, the Constitution was written to keep the majority from infringing on the rights of the minority, but it was also written to discourage what we see today in which the minority infringes on the rights of the majority.
