So its better the way we have it now. We get everyone together for a dog and pony show and vote vote vote! At that point after we all stand around and congratulate our selves for our wonderful system of government those who are actually in control can just disregard the vote anyway.
I forget who made this quote, democracy is two wolves and one sheep voting on what's for dinner.
You cant just take the vote away from people because you judge them to be inferior to you. Or you can but then don't cry when the same people come for your guns or properties
