Democracy was, now and always should be made up of people who care and understand the people who elected them into office; but is that always the case?

The definition of democracy is: a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.

But do we really have a good democracy? The picture below shows what happens when our democracy chooses an awful person to run the US. Because of what some people thought was “right” we now have to march for basic rights. A democracy should be thinking about the impact the government they elect affects everyone, not just what works for them or what they like.

I believe that a democracy should benefit everybody no matter gender, sexuality, race, or religion. We need to always think about how our choices affect other people, and if everyone did that a little bit more, then maybe we wouldn’t have to march for things that should be given to us from the get-go.
