  •  US was not a democracy in "early years". (0+ / 0-)

    Most people could not vote at all.

    Only men of property who, in theory, could not be bribe or coerced since they were the only people capable of bribery or coercion, could vote.

    No functional democracy with universal suffrage works without secret ballot.
