Barbara Riis-Christensen: Do not forget that the United States is a republic

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one Nation under God, indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for all.”

“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands; one Nation under God, indivisible, With Liberty and Justice for all.”

The government is itself a republic, a form of government in which the people are sovereign. Politicians, newscasters, and people in general keep referring to our government as a democracy.

I am sure that our teachers are teaching that we are a republic form of government. Maybe they need to put more emphasis on it since there are so many people that keep getting misinformed.
