Bring back the word "Republic" to describe the USA
Petition Background (Preamble):
The United States is not a democracy. It has never been a democracy, it is in fact a republic, a form of goverment in which representitives are elected rather than direct votes.
This works better than democracy because opinions that may change drastically do not take effect immediatly causing society to crash.
Whenever you are about to say the word democracy in regard to our great republic, remember to say republic not democracy and make the word part of common usage again.
