Well, of course to begin with what we have is a republic but I get what you say. One man one vote would be good if we had an homogenous population...people with similar values, goals, aspirations, etc. In a few short years the people that founded and built this nation will be a minority in our own country if the current demographic trends continue. Thus all these different groups and nationalities of people we now have here as citizens have different agendas, goals, aspirations etc. and each pulling in a different direction hence the paralyslis in Washington and not even to mention the majority pop. as of now....being caucasians are also split between liberals and conservatives...net result a huge mess tht is not going to get any better unless we make some radical or extremist type changes.
