Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Over the past 200+ years there has been in the US a gradual migration from the original republic towards democracy. Voting rights have been extended to those without the appropriate religion, property, race, gender, or age, and the process for choosing senators has been changed, as has the primary system, etc. The original goal of avoiding mob rule has been largely removed from the system.
