They don't let the people vote because it got rejected by most in its previous form as the EU constitution

I'd agree only in referring to europe, where there is sufficient history of war, hatred, and opposing cultural viewpoints that the most plausible democracy can be reached by involving govt officials, in the "representational democracy style" rather than everyone votes like here in the US. (although, with our electoral college, i'd argue that its essentially what we do here).

Democracy is to Americans what Catholicism was to the Crusaders.


We're a democratic republic. Get it right or pay the price. We'll free the shit out of you.

Incidently, England isn't a democracy, it's a Constitutional Monarchy

Democracies work best in smaller settings. It is common knowledge.
