    Democracy means some citizens get to vote, generally it’s the ones who aren’t slaves. In America they recently extended the vote to their nonwhite population, but the popular vote doesn’t do anything and the only parties allowed in national politics have no interest in representing anything other than their donors.

      By recent do you mean 1776?

        Women, Non-Whites, White non-landowners, and prisoners don’t count?

        Do you have any historical background on America, or do you just vibe a position into your personal belief and hope stating it makes it real?
