One issue I take here is that America, taking into account direct democracy, has not elected a Republican president since George H.W. Bush in 1988. It’s the lack of a truly democratic system that has allowed for the Republican influence in the federal government, and I include gerrymandering as part of the tactics taken by Republicans to inhibit a true democracy. The issue in American therefore isn’t that Democracy failed, it’s that it never existed.
