It is not true that the United States of America is a Representative Democracy. It is a Representative Republic. Do the research. It's not that hard, even a flamiing liberal multi-culturalist can understand the difference. I spent 42 years teaching in America's public schools. The students entered my class believing that they had come to a place where they would be able to learn something worthwhile and I didn't let them down. I taught them that learning started with the student providing an open-minded attitude toward learning new information that would fit into the empty places in their memory of what they had already learned. What I taught them was only a part of what was needed for them to know how to function in our society.
