I share your point - I also believe the system of local governments in the USA is much better than the democracy system of the central government. In local governments, people can stop the governor ...



People have lots of democratic rights they just dont excercise them. They can force change if they really want it as for example the Poll Tax introduced under Margaret Thatcher here in the UK.

Foreign policy is NEVER the first thing on the ordinary voters mind.
