    With all due respects to you and your erudite professor, the following fact is worth noting: America has never had a democracy even in its founding.

    Democracy as applied by the Greeks consisted of every member of the village participating in a vote on a particular issue. In this sense there was direct individual participation, thus a true democracy! Whereas in America we do not vote, we elect someone to vote for us: The electoral college, who can, conceivably, disregard pur choice. So in no way are we or were we ever a true democracy.

    BTW as for his reports on Bush, Gore, somewhat biased I'd say.
