    We are talking about the US government. What does that have to do with representative democracy's anyplace else?

The President (now almost King thanks to the powers Congress has ceded away over the decades) was to be chosen with influence from the People but isolated somewhat from the ebbs and flows of irrational popularism. That's the idea, but somewhere down the road we've forgotten that. We want fast government, responsive government, caring government; and in doing so, we've removed the restrictions and checks which helped us to control the government. This is why popularism is bad.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    This thread is by no means about the US, but about democracy.

    i'm still correct, 20 pages later. And, you have yet to debunk my points. But that's okay, you're still hot.

    Yes, and your claim is that "democracy" is the most moral type of government. I debunked that claim within the first 3 pages of the thread, and quite well, too, I might add. A constitutional republic is more moral than a straight democracy.

    You already lost, I don't know why you're still struggling. Just lay still and look cute, aight?

    Who said anything about the thread? In this case Goob was talking about the US government. You then agreed with his statement and proved it. Then you say because this includes other governments, somehow his statement is wrong?

    That is nothing more than a fallacy man.
