Best Answer

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.
