Read my comment again and tell me where exactly I said that My Continent was better than America. In-fact, I really want to move to America one day. That doesn't mean I'll ever start thinking in Fahrenheit or Feet/Inches. Even in America, I'll be "That one Weird guy who does everything all Europe-like."

We are a republic because we have limited government and protection of minority rights. We are a (representative) democracy because the government derives its power from the people, who vote for their representatives. The two are not mutually exclusive.
"It's not like people are just selected for the electoral college and they make their own choice as to who to vote for. The electoral college is legally bound by each state to vote a certain way. "
Actually this depends on individual state laws. Not all states require electors to vote a certain way. There have been electors who voted against the party that appointed them, though this has never changed the outcome of an election.
The main problems with the electoral college are that a) small states are overrepresented (relative to population) because of the distribution of electoral votes, and b) in majority-red or majority-blue states like Texas or California, minority-party voters have virtually no chance of ever influencing elections, because the majority will always get ALL of the electoral votes (50.1% popular vote might get 100% of the electoral votes, while the other 49.9% gets no electoral votes at all). This is what people sometimes mean when they say their vote doesn't matter.
