first of all, this is a horrible analogy. second of all it doesn't even prove anything. it makes sense that the two wolves would have the power in deciding whether to eat the lamb or not. the fact that they're voting on it at all shows the virtue of the system. if there were no system in place, the wolves would surely eat the lamb anyway. the minority party (the sheep) rising up in arms against the natural authority of the majority (the wolves) is a little thing called civil war, which usually turns out bad for all parties involved.

I tend to get a bit miffed when people refer to the U.S.A. as a democracy.

Democracy = people directly vote to pass laws and whatnot.

Republic = people vote for candidates to be put in higher positions of power, who vote to pass laws and whatnot.

Seriously, it's even in our pledge of allegiance. "and to the REPUBLIC, for which it stands...."

Democracy is a horrible way to run a country, but it's the best we've got.

Democracy is a great way to run a country. Its just a horrible way to run an Empire, and most countries are empires for all intentes and purposes.
We have grown too big for democraty. When individual vote is worth next to nothing, so is an individual to the system. What we have today is not democracy anyhow. We have a representative oligarchy that pulls its power far more from non representative buerocraty and corporate financial support, then voters.
Far superior system would be a loose confederacy of democratic city-states with open trade, common currency, common military and open immigration borders.

More views needed Americans need more more than two choices of candidates. Two candidates from the two major parties provide limited views and ideas for solutions, whereas a multi-party system would provide more ideas and solutions. Also, many times people vote based on what party a candidate represents and a multi-partisan system would cause people to look further into the values of all candidates before making a decision, instead of voting based on that one party label.

I think the sheep shouldn't be with wolves in the first place.

He clearly doesn't fit well into a wolf-dominated society.

America does need a radical change, and stop the ******* red hate. Socialism is THE way to better America and make it a more fair and better country to live in.

I do agree with some socialist programs, but they are far to out of control, poorly regulated, and need to be refined if no just redefined completely. there is no GOOD socialist society, there are only good societies who know how to utilize socialist ideas at very specific times. A completely socialist America is no longer America, it's a piece of **** with lazy inbreed moochers, there has to be motivation not just hand outs.

If the US executed it's Reserve Bankers (The banks of war/debt/lies/greed/misdirection/terror) then the US would truly be free. As it stands, those without the infection of the reserve bank money scam are free (however, we are at war with all those countries for no reason other than propaganda)... Sad but true...

In New Zealand, the % of votes you get = the % of power you get in congress.
I mean, we still only ever have one of two parties with a prime minister, but he has no more power than any other person in congress.
