There is an old saying (often attributed to Ben Franklin) like this:
Democracy is two wolves and one sheep voting on what's for dinner.
This is not a very exact analogy for modern democracy, which is more like this:
one wolf and ten sheep voting on which sheep are for the wolf's dinner.
[After I emailed this to him, Migeru suggested that I post this as a diary;
note that the colours refer to an American (U.S.) context.
I'm not entirely happy with the ‘blue’ party's platform's stategy;
suggestions on that, or anything else, are welcome.]
