    the historical component of its underlying premise is entirely false.

    Democracy is a system of government in which power is shared among all people equally.  And most Americans grow up regarding themselves as fortunate to partake in such a system of government, and feeling we are some how special among all the nations of the earth because of that democratic government. . .I am of the belief that we have been witness over the past few decades to a shift in our government away from democracy and towards corporatocracy.

    When exactly did the country fit the definition of democracy that you posit?
