About Democratic Republic

A democratic republic is a country that is both a republic and a democracy. It is a state in which, theoretically, ultimate authority and power is derived from the citizens. The United States was founded as a Republic, and has evolved to be a Democratic Republic via amendment changes such as the 17th amendment. In 1789 only 6% of the US population could vote. In 1790, only white males could vote. It wasn't until 1856 when the final state of North Carolina removed land ownership as a requirement to vote. In 1869, male former slaves were granted citizenship and the right to vote with the 14th amendment, and bolstered with the 15th amendment in 1870. It wasnt' until 1920 that the 19th amendment gave women the right to vote. The United States was originally a representative republic in which democratic representation was not an original part. The US has further evolved into a more representative democracy as a form of a republi nation. However in practice countries that describe themselves as democratic republics do not always hold free or fair elections. One example of this was the German Democratic Republic, a communist state commonly known as East Germany.[1] Another is the Democratic Republic of the Congo which in 2011 was rated by Freedom House as a "not free" country having a rating of 6.0 (1.0 being completely free and 7.0 being completely unfree).[2]
