Modern Usage has transgressed somewhat from the (original definition) - An individual or group of individuals brought to power by a majority vote of the electorate.
For modern usage See: Bush(USA), Mugabe(Zimbabwe), Gordon Brown(UK), Thein Sein (burma), Mahmoud Ahmadinejad(iran), Vladimir Putin& Dmitry Medvedev (Russia) Jalal TALABANI (Iraq) who have all been Democratically Elected in the past few years. Scary isn't it?
Your grandfather, somebody's son, a woman's husband, a father and thousands like him died in a war fighting for the right to freedom and democracy. I'm so pleased we have all upheld those morals so that we can all say that our leaders are Democratically Elected (see farce)!
