They did, but like many forms of government, it has 'evolved' into something else.
A Representative Democracy, a Democratic Republic? Republic has been used by many countries, and not necessarily accurately.
People's Republic of China, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and the Republic of Texas, Dominican Republic, Kyrgyz Republic, Banana Republic, The Democratic Republic of the Congo.
Whatever the US has morphed into, it's election process needs an overhaul, as do both houses.
The system is 'broken.'
