This is the argument of right-wing nutjobs. Please refrain from using it. America is a Democracy. Your head of state is elected democratically. Having a democratically elected head of state is one of the features of a republic.
Also, to add weight to the people arguing against detox's point. Osama was not a citizen of the USA and was not entitiled to any rights as such.
Also, is the American government did release photos of the corpse then that wouldn't have any impact on the number of people saying Obama isn't dead. Conspiracy theorists don't respond to logic or reason.
No, the US is a Republic. We have a popular vote, but this is not the mechanism that ultimately decides who wins. Meet our Electoral College
. It has resulted in several previous winning candidates being elected despite losing the popular vote
. Also, our Parties are called Democrats and Republicans, but that doesn't mean they represent the ideas of a Democracy and a Republic, its just a naming convention that goes back a long time. Republicans that point this out aren't spouting propaganda, they're just ignorant.
Also, lol obama isnt dead.
