A Republic is a type of government where the people elect officials to govern the society.
A Democracy is a type of government is where the people govern their own society.
If you want to go in depth with me, A Indirect Democracy is technically a Republic, and a Direct Democracy is a Democracy.
But if you say a Democracy, people (at least the people that know stuff), they automatically assume your talking about a DIRECT DEMOCRACY.
You did not cite anything so I automatically (also) assume that your a crazy anarchist. Even though I believe you.
But really, look at some old countries and places. Were they ever rightly governed? No. It is just a repeat of the past.
Thanks for the Debate. Merry Thanksgiving
What I can give is these stats from the fact book: "Talk Nerdy to Me." copyright 2013.
It gives these stats about world GDP for one year. Measured in the U.S. dollar.
USA: $15.1 trillion
China: $7.3 trillion
Japan: $5.9 trillion
Germany: $3.6 trillion
France: $2.8 trillion
Brazil: $2.5 trillion
The rest of the world: $33 trillion
EU: $18.4 trillion
And the US has a budget of $711 billion dollars in military spending.
And after World war 1, Germany's inflation was so bad that in 1921. That German rate of exchange was 81 marks (their currency) to one US dollar. By September 1923 it was 100 million marks to 1 dollar.
Do you want me to add? Or what?

Reasons for voting decision: Better arguments and sourcing by Pro, Con just resorted to false assertions (like owing China $50 trillion, it's less than $2 trillion). Both need to work on their spelling and grammar.
