USA is a REPUBLIC NOT DEMOCRACY The USA is not a democracy it’s a republic which is where the population elects their own representative to represent them in the government for their district, state; depending on their population in the state they are in. The USA is said only to be a democracy because it lets the people elect those who are going to represent their state or district. So saying the USA is a democracy it is completely wrong, second depending on how many people live in your state will influence how many representative your state can have. Having said this people are having less and less power to elect their representatives to go to congress thanks to gerrymandering. Since gerrymandering is were politicians redraw the district in their state depending on population every ten years when the census is made. Political parties have redrawn district where they make their political party the winner no matter if they lost in the overall vote of the state. That is why many districts look very weird in shape so that no matter how many vote for the other party their party will have the greatest advantage. In other words it doesn’t matter what the people vote for as long as they can continue to rearrange the district for their political party victory. That is why the USA is not a democracy.
