Democracy sells itself, in part, as the political view point that provides freedom to it's followers. Examples as to why this is false. A man was arrested, tried and jailed for wearing a t-shirt that said "Killing police is fun". This may not be a tasteful display of opinion, but it was actually harmless. We vote for those to rule us based on ability to perform in front of the camera. Once in power hundreds of rules/laws/decisions are made that impact our lives directly. We had no say in these decisions and they were never mentioned in the election campaign... We have no real say in how our children are educated. We have no real say in media coverage of anything. Democracy is Fallacy. The only choice we have is which control freak to vote in next.

Democracy promotes (not gives) Freedom, and it is the leader who has the problem, not the government type.

As Con, I will give burden of proofs, but I want to see Pro first. The statement mentioned above will be the center of my argument.
