    Democracy can not work in a tribal society which is why the Dems are trying so hard to separate everyone by selling their insecurity as being a good thing.

    Democracy hasn't really worked in the Middle Eastern Arabian countries, like Egypt. They THINK they know what they want, by voting in a Muslim Brotherhood president...who then becomes a tyrant. They have done better with military leaders that have actually been benevolent. 

    This is why the Framers of the Constitution went to great lengths to limit the power of governmental leaders.

    I guess it's what you mean by two main choices and controlled by globalists.  

    In the last French election, there were eleven candidates for President on the ballot and four got between 19% and 25%.  And the top four candidates ranged from far left to far right with very different agendas.  The fact that the most moderate, pro-Europe candidates of the four won says something about what the French people want.  

    Now democracy is an imperfect system for choosing a leader but as Churchill described it -- it's the worst possible system except for all others.  If you can show me a country that has a non-democratic system that results in a leader that only acts out of the best interest of the people and is successful, then I have some ancestral property to sell you.  

    I would take any President of the U.S. (even Trump) since World War 2 over any of the leaders of Russia, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, or China during that same time period.

    America is a Republic based on the Constitution of the United States.  In our Constitution is outlined our Freedoms which are very precious to most Americans.  We have a foreign entity in our Democrat party attempting to change America as she has been known.

    Every form of government can be scrutinized historically and identify countless frames where it did and did not work well. As such, there's plenty for anyone to sink their teeth in. All they have to do is be selective about what they look at. And then there are opinionated people like you who can twist and embellish to make their POV work for themself.

    It works wherever bad actors are stopped from interfering with the legal processes that support democracy.  Example:  Trump wanted to illegally stay in power despite losing both the popular vote and the Electoral College vote. But we the people didn't allow that.  When the will of the people wants it to work, democracy works.
