Ten types of government?

There are only 3 types of governments in the United States of America. Thus being: state government, tribal government, and federal government. The federal government has 3 branches under its government. Which is Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branch. But, all of those branches are still under the federal government. Thus being said 4 governments in America is clearly false.

What type of government did Americans set up after the American revolution?

A constitutional republic. The word Democracy never appears in the constitution and as a matter of fact many of the founding fathers actually HATED democracy. This is because democracy states that 51% of the population can take away the rights of the 49. We are a republic, so minority rights are protected (we are all minorities with respect to something -- they were not referring to race or religion when speaking of minority rights). Democracy is a form of tyrany since a "bare" majority can override the will of 49%. It is true that a 'constitutional republic' is a FORM of democracy. But that's like saying the house and senate are the same because they both cast votes. False logic.

FALSE. In a democracy, all people are supposed to be on an equal legal footing, but it is not required that they all have the same physical or mental abilities. In fact, to force every person to be physically and mentally equal to each other is the definition of totalitarianism.
