Ever yearn for what we used to aspire to? What would the bridge of the Enterprise look like if the crew behaved like our politicians do these days? (especially Republicans...)
Remember to vote this November!
Democracy is common and somewhat popular among many people all over the world, yet people give it too much credit.
The one who can delude the people best is the one that gets most of the votes, weather or not he is really a good leader. A charismatic leader such as Adolf Hitler or Josef Stalin might have used their charisma to win over voters in a democracy assuming they had not already made a reputation for themselves as an evil dictator. Imagine also Oprah whatsherlastname running for president, she probably has little to no political experience and yet, she can win over voters by pure popularity...
