Best Answer

As conceived in its Founding and preserved for most of its brief but momentous history, the United States exists as a republic. What this means primarily is that it is governed through two great balances: first, between the 'people' and 'professionals' (ordinary citizens and political experts of some sort); second, between state and federal powers.
