Another view of Democracy…

Good morning, Netizens...

Ah, Democracy, at least as practiced by the American people. Cartoonist David Horsey gives us an irreverent glimpse of Democracy as viewed by the people of Afghanistan, perhaps one that we cannot admit to ourselves. All we have to do is watch the Senate and House voting on Health Care legislation closely and we can see how our Democracy is fragile and subject to breakage.

David Horsey has it correct, I think. One vote can put an end to a bill, and with it, Democracy quickly goes downhill.

Now if Americans truly understood the principal of representative democracy, perhaps half the people in the House and Senate would already be out of a job and we might have our jobs back and perhaps even a health care bill we need.
