  1. The lack of instant run-off voting is troublesome, since it (as in the USA) de facto creates a two-party system.

  2. The inherent problem with a Constitution is the willingness to enforce it and a “Government” willing to abide by it. As we can see in America these days that thanks to what is called the Deep State meaning an unelected and accountable group of bureaucrats in the “Intelligence” their is neither the willingness nor the will as we rapidly slip into becoming just another Banana “Republic”.

  3. Ultimately, democracy may be a sham notion designed to remove power and to make it ambiguous so that others, who litter among that swell of the mob, can bring order to chaos because they are the most organized, practiced, coordinated, and ready. There is no democracy anywhere anyhow — in all systems, some faction(s) will be pushing the leaders to the fore. Most troublesome is a nation, however, that doesn’t have an affixed benevolent and nationalistic leader to stay above the politics and lead the country strategically and with values. In those cases, a porous security gap is available for others in fixed intervals as “election terms”. In the example of America’s design, the balancing act required integrity by those claiming to adhere to and enforce the Constitution as America’s elected leaders. That failed and so did the design. Case studies with inverted demonstrated results exist otherwise for nations led by (1) nationalistic minded leaders who are (2) strategic, (3) tough enough to oust all internal opponents, but yet (4) benevolent to a strategic national cause.

    Humans are just animals. In Kingdom Animalia, the leaders are always the most powerful and vicious. And that is who is best to protect a nation at the same time. Democracies don’t elect powerful leaders — rather, “Democracies” are prime vehicles to corrupt and sway to the interests of only one organized minority. Not all humans are made to lead either. It defies the human condition to have democracies.

    • Very well said Mr, Lawman – Today the snakes have figured out how to deceive any political structure that has the country and its populace at the top of the list. And if the snakes don’t win – their covert and proxy armies will be across your borders – in no time.
