Democracy is an encompassing term that includes Republics, Parliamentary systems, and direct Democracies. Direct or Classical Democracy is where everyone votes without a representative. A Republic (which I agree we are) means the state is based on the Roman Republican system. In the US there is nearly a 1:1 relationship for example.
You are correct, I should have specified. The US was never intended to be governed by simple majority vote.
I am also extremely happy we do not have Ted Cruz anywhere near the presidency. That man is far more dangerous than Trump.
