What's the better alternative to democracy in your opinion? Your push against it scares me a little bit.Millions of people loved Eddie Van Halen. Did that qualify him to run a country? Trump's success really opens up some very old, but very serious, questions about democracy as a system. Can we really trust the people to make the right choices?
The fact is, there are many Amercians far more qualified than Trump to be in the White House who aren't even in politics because they don't want to pander to the lowest common denominator to get votes. Intellectual honesty doesn't matter in their, or our, system. As long as the people like you (or don't hate you in some really sad cases), you're in.
Our boy is a classic example. Trudeau did not win on any kind of qualification for the job, he won because people liked him and hated Harper. Half his cabinet are probably better qualified to be PM than the PM himself.
