Democracy is the best form of government

  As democracy means rule of people ... That is of the people for the people and by the people. Democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens participate equally—either directly or through elected representatives. Democracy is the best form of government simply because no other form of government is known to work well. Democracy may have its flaws but all in all it works very fluidly. Some plus points of having a democratic form of government:- 1. Freedom 2. Democracy represents the views and notions of all the citizens of the country, whether majorities or minorities. 3. It helps in solving conflicts and quarrels in a better way. 4. It provides a dignity to the people. 5. Democracy allows various people to rule the country through the representatives. 6. It also allows people to express themselves clearly and freely. 7. It Respects & promotes Human Rights 8. In this form of government all people are equal before the law. 9. Democracy is the only form of government where the people can voice their opinion. 10. In my view there is no other alternative form of government better than a democracy.

What would happen if everyone voted for a president that would do everything in his power to spend all of the governments and people's money on war weapons that we don't need. Ex: George Bush who spent trillions of tax payer dollars and other money on war on Afghanistan and iraq then Obama who continued to spend more money and send many American soldiers to Afghanistan to fight. This is an example of how the system pretty much fails because of greed. So tell me how it works exactly. Tell me know how your 10 matters then.

Freedom may not be the best thing. The Freedom to hold guns, the freedom to say anything you want, it does not matter how racist or sexist it is. In a more of a radical way freedom can lead to anarchy.

It is self-evident that it is POPULISM that matters in democracy, not merit (and proportional representation – which gives populism even greater weight, creates an even greater disconnect between governance and merit)

I think it sounds good in hypothesis but in reality fails due to the fact that while you say that it gives you freedom i would argue that legal bribes and untrustworthy people being the ruling class making rules to help ether the rich or there doner class buddies, so i ask you where is the freedom when the peoples vote is essentially useless since there are only two branches of the same party in power called the corporate party and no other party can get into power.

Not everyone is equal under law witch in fact is my second problem with democracy, you trust people another to not be greedy or oppress a minority, as if look at Geroge W. Who sends Americans into Iraq and Afghanistan, and what about the drug war where African Americans or in my country's case aboriginal people are treated like dirt just because they use a substance.

You claim democracy is a form of government when it is clearly not, it is only a system where people pick between two sides of the same party.

The things i think your right on promoting human rights and freedom but i would say that isn't in democracy at all or at least at a bare bone level.

Everyone can vote, which means the ignorant can vote. That's why so many politician lie, because the ignorant will elect them.
