Something United States of America politicians claims the country is built on, while every single day they make every effort to undermine it.
The public doesn't war, politicians want war, means there will be war, because it's "democracy".

The public wants tax cuts, politicians want tax raises, means there will be tax raises, because it's "democracy".
The public wants weed, the politicians don't want weed, means if they'll find you possesing it, you'll be locked up for life, cause this is a "democracy"!

Any of a number of forms of government which at their core have some degree of decision-making performed by a system of voting. Exactly who can vote (franchisement) often varies quite widely, and has historically in many countries been divided along lines of age, gender, religion, economic status, class, race, ethnic group, language, nationality, and citizenship. The degree of participation can also vary. A direct democracy, for example, would in principle have all decisions made by popular vote. Most democratic nations use some form of representative democracy, whereby voters designate certain people or groups to make decisions for them.
Though both the United States and the United Kingdom have democratic elements, their political systems are quite different.

A form of government which America has never been in. In a democracy we would vote and popular vote would decide our president.

In our form of governemnt, a republic, we elect representatives which then get to vote with "our interests at heart".,
America is not a democracy you dumb fucks, it's a Republic.
