Constitutional democratic republic: Grateful we choose our elected representatives despite the often flawed and fractured manner in which it is done. Plus knowing our leaders are elected for only relatively short periods of time and we can replace them if we choose in the next election cycle. This is largely done in a mostly peaceful way without damage to life and property. For the most part America remains a self-governing, relatively free society choosing our own economic destinies.
