Ok, Ok, funny and all, but when are all the ignorant dunces going to realize that the USA is not now, and never was a democracy. The founders recognized that democracy is simply government ordered mob rule. The USA was formed as a constitutionally based, representative republic. NOT a 'democracy'. Democracy has never worked. Never will. It is simply barely concealed and codified rule of the strongest. WORK AGAINST DEMOCRACY EVERYWHERE!

Democracy is a form of dictatorship.

'The role and the force of the state is never neutral: it is always an instrument for protecting and preserving the existing system, for enforcing the dominant relations and class structure, for backing up those who serve and support them, and for suppressing those who are in any kind of fundamental opposition. This is certainly no less true in a democratic form of state than any other.'

'Elections are controlled by the bourgeoisie; are not the means through which basic decisions are made in any case; and are really for the primary purpose of legitimizing the system and the policies and actions of the ruling class, giving them the mantle of a "popular mandate", and of channeling, confining, and controlling the political activity of the masses of people.'

(from Democracy: Can't We Do Better Than That?)

You are correct on a level though, that democracy can never work; but under what circumstances?
