What is democracy

Report as

Democracy is a beautiful theory that no-one has ever managed to put into practice. We are supposed to believe democracy is our system of government in America, which is so sad I despair whenever I see how the democratic concept has been distorted. When Jed Bush refused to count the votes of the negro community so his brother could remain President, I have given up hope of ever seeing true Democracy anywhere in the world. What America has is government of the rich, by the rich, for the benefit of the rich. I can't say what that is, but democracy, it ain't!!

Democracy is a system of government whereby the wishes of the people are polled and the desires of the majority are implemented. The United States is a representative democracy. We elect people to vote for us. In a true democracy everyone would be polled on every question. There are no true democracies in place today as a form of government, only representative ones

We live in a democratic republic. The people vote to put people in office to represent them. Unfortunately the politicians are more concerned about their success and they forget about you. A true democracy is one where every one casts a vote and there is only one possible outcome. The last formal democracy was in Greece in 500 BC.
