Are you well enough versed in the political science to define and 
understand the differences? If you're you'll know that there is no and 
never been any true democracy anywhere and republic is just one type of 
this political system.

And in my view US can be be described as corporate republic. Meaning large 
companies and special interest choose and make the elite (rather then 
individual families as in classic republic or democracy) and use goverment
to futher achieve their goals and legal and financial system to maintain 
control over demos and use press and other means (financial and otherwise) 
to that purpose.
