How is the US a republic when a very small number of candidates are chosen by the party organizations for us to choose from?
Americans dont really choose who gets elected. And only people who have lots of money and donations from other rich people can run.

anyone can run for office and win.
Donald Trump is proof of that.
in fact AOC is also proof of that.

False. In the early days of the country, the parties chose the candidates. But now people vote in primaries to choose the candidates. Clinton wasn't rich and neither was Obama. Only Republicans have to be rich to be elected.
