“To Madison and other framers of the Constitution, the words “democracy” and “republic” had important differences. Democracy meant majority rule, and it still has this connotation today. A republic, on the other hand, meant a democratic government with limited powers that are widely divided among different voting blocs in order to protect the rights of as many people as possible.”  James D. Agresti, “The U.S. is a Democratic Constitutional Republic, and Yes, It Matters,” Just Facts Daily, 5/2/2019.
