Well, in the truest sense...

...a republic IS a form of democracy. We elect those state representatives who were SUPPOSED TO BE the guiding force for who we sent to Washington. From day one we were supposed to elect only our Congressmen at the federal level. Then we started the nonsensical popular vote for president, which is a pure illusion because the people still DON'T elect the president....and we did expand direct democratic elections to the senate via the Seventeenth Amendment. Somewhere along the way, our schools started conveniently forgetting that we are a republic and started preaching that we are a democracy. That made it very convenient to all but erase the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, and let people accept "federalism gone wild."
