We are NOT a Democracy!

I was talking with a friend the other day about the differences between the various forms of government, particularly the distinction between a democracy and a republic. Later that day I saw this video, which does a good job of explaining the basic components of each form of government and their benefits and failures. It's pretty simplistic in it's explanation, but hey, sometimes we just need to keep it simple, right?
