We are NOT a democratic country. There are too many restrictions on basic freedoms (especially on women) that people in truly democratic countries take for granted.
The 2012 election will be rampant in vote switching and corruption. The winners in many areas will not be the best candidate nor even the candidate who gets the most votes.
Yeah, some democracy we have.
"Tangible change" you wish for - and I ask: at the expense of what, and enrichening who, may I ask?
