    What are your thoughts on Democracy?  Does it work?

    No.  Democracy DOES NOT work, and I'll tell you why:

    Democracy doesn't work when the public is stupid, or misinformed....just like it is in America.

    The mass media is a cartel with a serious agenda, and a big part of that agenda depends upon Americans being stupid and lied to constantly.

    It doesn't work exactly as we'd wish to, but it is the best option we have as of now.

    It's far better than living in a totalitarian state anyday. I'll take stupidity and corruption over lack of freedom.

    I do not know very much about democracies because I have never lived in one. Now, if the question was about a republic, I would have an answer.
