I may get some downvoted and sound tyranic but this is what I think.

Most of people votes based on populism and charisma. They don't care (or realize) about plans or a well structured organization of (eventual) goverment. They go after the ones who look better, speak better, and it's aligned to the political view. At all, most people doesn't have any clue of what they want or what's better (and most of the time neither does the politicians). I believe there is always people more qualified for that job and even if it's a small portion of people, they should have the right to decide about the important decisions and that really should be based on intelligence (the logical one, not the emotional one) and don't give a damn about the "majority".

But power corrupts people, even the good people and that's why democracy it's the best goverment system so far but with HUGE flaws that makes me think it's almost impossible for the human kind to develop a good system without abusing of it.

Before U.S. discussion start, I just want to mention that the U.S. is a Democratic Republic, which means leaders and representatives are democratically elected to make laws for the people. Also there are many checks, such as the electoral college, to make sure that in case a big portion of stupid grabs hold, it can still be counteracted.
This exists as opposed to a pure Democracy, which would mean that the people get to directly vote for policies, which would result in the majority decision, be that good or terrible. If America were a Democracy we would've fallen apart before we started.

Liberals came to power, I don't like Liberals. This dislike is partially based on the fact that the Liberal party is actually conservative, which pisses me off.

Furthermore, Abbot, the new PM, plans on scrapping the current NBN (National Broadband Network) which would've drastically improved the country's internet infrastructure to be replaced with something that makes no ******* sense.

As a final point, he's also opposed to gay marriage, has no economic policies, plans on scrapping parent benefits and various other things that have kept Australian families afloat for the last decade and has also been very closed on what his policies actually are.

As such, bearing all this in mind, it absolutely ******* infuriates me that this guy actually made it into power.

I cannot speak for Australia but I know that the main problem with america as a democracy is that its too damn big. There are a plethora of different regions of people who are separated form each other and want different things I.E. the people of the deep south and the people of the northwest on average have completely different values, yet both of them are affected by each others votes of a federal level. A compromise that satisfies no one.

Well, in the US, people don't even vote for the president, the electoral college does. Meaning, the people truly have no power over who gets elected for president.

That's not true. You vote for representatives which in turn vote for the President. The middle-man helps stop the influence of stupid.
