What's left, a government run by the one? And you think that would result in less tyranny?
My opinion is that many in our population are not very bright, mostly interested in short-term gains for themselves personally regardless of harm to others, with little thought for what's better for future generations.
It seems to me our government has represented us very closely.
When we evolve as a people, so will those that represent us.
As I said before, we get the government we deserve.
