The scary thing with democracy and why it is bit bad is everyone has equal power even the one who is sitting every day watching the sports and soaps and porn on the tv and stuffing their faces with Mcdonalds. What the f(*& do they know and how they make correct, informed decison. Answer is they don't. So you end up with a kind of lowest common demon leader.

This last election in the US is example. Regardless of left and right, liberal and conservative, it is surely the case that Kerry and Bush are not the supreme Americans. I am sure there are better leaders in the teams of football, baseball and also the corporate world who are better communicators and of more intelligence and charisma.

But also it is very dangerous to trust small elite group to provide leader. So is always going to be compromise.

Yes this is a great day for Democracy.

All these voters in Iraq seem to be happy in have their voting rights except two who are members of Interferece.Com.

They claimed the lines were too long.

We do take our rights for granted.

Maybe that is what this thread is all about.

I didn't intend to make any poor or offensive inferences from your post. Sorry if I offended you.

I agree. We have the right to vote and too many people don't use theirs. I agree that we don't necessarily get the best candidates, but we should still vote.
