Democracy is one of the worst forms of government

There is an old saying, "Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what is for dinner." There is another old saying, "Democracy is nothing more than mob rules." Why do we think the main stream media uses the Democracy catch phrases so much?

We could have as Constitutionally Limited Democracy, but wouldn't that fly in the face of a true Democracy? After all, the majority rules.

Under a "true" Democracy, the majority rules, and that includes taking rights away from the minority.
 
To me, the biggest problem is the government isn't accountable to the people at all. Every 4 years we get to show up and suggest what pile of shit we want to eat, then we have to watch them pretend that their opinion on whatever is sanctioned by the "American People" because they won an election. More issues should be put to a vote and not just left to opinion of people we vote for.

Excellent point.

While the people get to vote on state issues, federal issues are mostly left to congress.

Perhaps term limits for congress, and no retirement for members of congress
