Re: Team America

"democracy" is a concept, not a reality

Democracy: " a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system. [Emphasis mine]

I think you are under the illusion, as many are, that democracy = personal freedom. It does not. Our freely elected agents make sure of that. They also go to great lengths to maintain the illusion.
