Wow! People still don't realize that we have a republican democracy for two reasons:

1. To provide input from the populous.
2. So that representatives can respond to the issues the populous doesn't have time to.

Can't wait for the next Constitutional Convention so we can maybe get a chance to change over to a parliamentary democracy like the rest of Western Civilization.

The "frozen-in-time" republican-democracy you good folk ballyhoo was the American Way of the Life of the slave-holders, the land thieves and the galoots.

(Of course, I'm always open to being persuaded otherwise...)

GOP Mess AmeriKKKa...
