Right. In a 'true' democracy, citizens would vote on the bills that become laws. In our republic, we elect the lawmakers who vote on the laws. [[User:Maestro|Maestro]] 09:24, 10 November 2007 (EST)
:Both are wrong. Direct democracy is a form of democracy: dude, the adjective ''direct'' modifies the noun ''democracy'', indicating what KIND of democracy it is.
:It is usually leftist critics of American democracy who trot out the old "not a democracy" canard.
:Our form of democracy is not [[majority rule]] like a New Hampshire town meeting, because it has federal and state components (each states have local components!). --[[User:Ed Poor|Ed Poor]] <sup>[[User talk:Ed Poor|Talk]]</sup> 21:38, 11 November 2007 (EST)
