    You need to define democracy. You are not an American so your understanding of democracy is different from ours.

      And can't that be equally valid in terms of Rajivpurnima'experience of democracy? It may not be a legal definition but......its illuminating the loyalty you show for your country and its administrators (politicians) bradmasterOCaccal

    In theory, yes. This is why the United States is a republic, with a Constitution that in theory says you can't deny people freedom of speech or due process just because 50%+1 vote to do so.
