Ah, yes, Rap, but finding a totally "pure" democracy is like trying to find a totally pure woman....or a totally humble Texan...or a totally selfless moneylender...

It is not absolute purity we require for good government...just a certain measure of honesty and public responsibility, combined with a reasonably representative system and a good bill of rights.

Go back and check through the election results, state by state, year by year, right from 1792. It's really very interesting.
