No 23went created as one. Neither was Rome.

We now have everyone even illegals ands felons in many states. Also many states continue to pass winner take all national popular vote laws. Senate is not chosen by states it's now chosen by popular vote of people. So why don't you tell in what way are we still a republic instead of democracy?

I'll remind you the two parties are Republicans and Democrats, Democrats continue to institute democracy in the name of social justice and bitterness over lost elections.

Pretty stupid thing to say. If Trump is the one building the platform on which lawmakers were going to act upon(see tax reform and border) and you were opposed to these laws, voting for the opposing party would lock out Trumps agenda. So Trumps popularity(which includes his policies) would certainly be in the minds of voters and their actions. This is what is fundamentally Right with democracy.

Thanks for admitting that Democracy turned potus into a king. A position some founders argued shouldn't even exist for that very reason.
