Do you agree or disagree?  Why?

A representative republic, such as was envisioned by America's Founding Fathers, is a far better form of government than a democracy.

Nope.

Absolutely! And it was working just fine until one political party took a hard left turn.

No. Socialism is, at least for morons.

The best form of government is a representative democracy.

Democracy is mob rule. If we had a democracy hillary would be president right now.
  

Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian Nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.~John Jay
Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?~ Patrick Henry

Well a representative republic, in which the representatives are elected is a form of democracy isn't it?

Not really. A republic is a representative form of government that is ruled according to a charter or constitution. A democracy is a government that is ruled according to the will of the majority. Although these forms of government are often confused, they are quite different.

The USA is a Republic, it seems you are not aware of this.

"By definition, a republic is a representative form of government that is ruled according to a charter, or constitution, and a democracy is a government that is ruled according to the will of the majority. Although these forms of government are often confused, they are quite different. The main difference between a republic and a democracy is the charter or constitution that limits power in a republic, often to protect the individual's rights against the desires of the majority. In a true democracy, the majority rules in all cases, regardless of any consequences for individuals or for those who are not in the majority on an issue."
