I think the whole election process tends to hurt democracy more than help it because it puts focus on individual people or collective groups instead of trying to come together as local communities to fix our problems and actually having the power to do so instead of dealing with tons of bureaucratic barriers.
What an excellent post. We have arrived at a day and age where democracy consists of casting a vote for the lesser of the two evils - neither of which have the best interest of the country and current/future generations in mind.
