Thanks for engaging. Truth be told, I don’t think we have ever really had a functioning Democracy. Our system of governance has great things imbedded in it and it has always also had atrocious flaws. No president in the history of the United States has ever been a shining beacon of justice and equality for all. So it is not that I have faith so much as I have a pragmatic hope. That said, I am curious as to what you want to replace the system with. Genuinely curious.
