Well, of course to begin with what we have is a republic but I get what you say.Well, perhaps the best thing to say is, what can the very best be? If Democracy is always going to bad, and a dictatorship is always going to be bad, then what is the least bad system available?I do not think it can be made more functional, as I said it is becoming increasingly dysfunctional and it will do so till it gets so bad we will be forced to deal with it in a manner a great many people will not like. The bottom line we are in a huge, huge mess. A mess that will not go away of its own accord. As pointed out prviously our demographics are working against us. There has never been a society or nation in the history of the world that has been successful when composed of so many disparate factions.Yes, but the fact remains that if you make the system functional, then it'll be a better system.It is not a question of not wanting democracy. It is a problem of our system of government democracy/republic becoming increasingly dysfunctional.Well, the problem is the US govt is a disaster right now. It needs to change and couldn't be that much worse.Government by comittee would be a disaster. Congress itself is bad enough. In fact our form of government is increasingly dysfunctional. Mainly due to diversity/multiculturalism. We have so many different groups now with their own agendas and all pulling and pushing for their particular agenda....creates paralysis at the highest levels. Time to change our form of government. Democracy/republic requires a certain level of homogenity which we no longer have.
So you don't want democracy. Then what?
Now, how do you make democracy more functional?
This nation in a most foolish manner let itself go down a path of diversity and multiculturalism that will lead to our being relegated to the dustbin of history unless we manage to somehow get off that path and to do so now will require a revolutionary change in the way we govern ourselves..
Personally I think it's when you have fair democracy, one person, one vote.
I think it's where everyone gets to have the representatives they want to have.
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.
