#1 When demographics become valid predictors of political outcomes, then democracy becomes theocracy and ethnocracy.s

#2 We have had a republic.

Egypt is heading toward a true democracy, where the majority of uneducated, unemployable, sheep ... herders will decide who rules, and how.

The Athenians had a democracy, until it devolved into mob rule - see V. D. Hanson. That's why our Founding Fathers gave us a Republic - for as long as we could keep it.
