Democracy is the answer! Seriously!

Every year, millions of American school children are indoctrinated into the idea that the end-all be-all of political systems is democracy.

It can't be any other way. Any other way would be silly. If societies and nations want to reach the pinnacle of political evolution, they will adopt democracy.

The United States is even helping Iraq to realize this right now.

(Green text = sarcasm)

So, how is democracy really working?

How did you like the United States presidential election of 2000 with disputed Florida ballots?

Or the 2004 Ukrainian election of their prime minister, which resulted in a week of protests, a new election, and a new victor?

Or how about the 2004 United States presidential election with minorities in Ohio (a major swing state) claiming their opportunities to vote were severely infringed?

Or what about the disputed July 2006 presidential election in Mexico which is threatening to topple the nation's government?

In all of these situations, the fatal flaw inherent in all democracies has been exposed: voter fraud.

And no one is really stepping forward to offer any useful, concrete and permanent solutions.

Perhaps we should have paid attention to Plato's criticism of democracy...provided over two thousand years ago.

Democracy! Hell yeah!
