    DEMOCRACY IS STILL ~ THE STRONGEST POWER RULES. CITIZANS (SELDOM). MANY TIMES THE PUBLIC ISN'T SMART ENOUGH TO CHOOSE, A GOOD LEADER, OR HAVE THE CHOICES, FOR A GOOD LEADER! EVEN THAN, THE LEADER IS OFTEN KEEPT FROM DOING THE RIGHT THING, BY BEING OVER POWERED BY OPPOSITION! /B] SUMMERY... All Bull Sh'T!:confused:

    Did you have a point to communicate for discussion or was this just a protest on your part?

    Pure democracy cannot work.. the Democratically Elected Constitutional Republic is far superior

    Democracy opens up rule to the tyranny of the ever changing whim of popular frenzy...

    Votes on substantive matters and emergencies would be a logistical nightmare

    Strong leadership must often override popular sentiment. Many times the sentiment is based on panic and incomplete information. Much information, especially in security and military matters, is not to be disseminated for complete public knowledge. The strong leader must often make an unpopular decision for the good of the country or place he/she governs over, even if it costs them the next popular election.

    The reasons are many
