What is democracy?
Democracy is a type of government where the power is exercised directly by the citizens. The government allows the citizens to participate equally by allowing them to vote for the leaders of their choice. You can learn more on http://www.stanford.edu/~ldiamond/iraq/WhaIsDemocracy012004.htm.
I'm waiting for one of two things on this question, someone to make a judgemental answer when in reality they have no idea what they're talking about. Or someone copying and pasting from google.--[[I ain't even mad!

Pure democracy is a form of government in which the people under the authority vote on the issues facing them. A republic is a form of government where representatives are voted for or appointed to vote on the issues facing them.
Democracy is where people get to vote for their own president
