Representative Democracy might produce decent government but it is not Democracy whatever the Wikipedia might choose to say. It clearly is not Direct democracy, the sort where people vote in person - and get to live with their own decisions.
#Representative Democracy is different; it is easier to manipulate than the real thing. That is why the Zionist crazies, the Puppet Masters, like it. As Gilad Atzmon told us: Jews Buy All Western Politicians For Less Than One Main Battle Tank. Do they come that cheap? Probably not but he is very much on the right lines. NB Blackmail costs less.
Representative Democracy ex Wiki
Representative democracy (also indirect democracy, representative republic, or psephocracy) is a variety of democracy founded on the principle of elected officials representing a group of people, as opposed to direct democracy. All modern Western-style democracies are types of representative democracies; for example, the United Kingdom is a crowned republic and Germany is a parliamentary republic.
Representative democracy is often presented as the only form of democracy possible in mass societies. It arguably allows for efficient ruling by a sufficiently small number of people on behalf of the larger number. Representative democracy has been conceptually associated with and historically instantiated by the political system known as "representative government," which was born in the 18th century with the French and American revolutions. It is a system in which people elect their lawmakers (representatives), who are then held accountable to them for their activity within government. 
It is an element of both the parliamentary system or presidential system of government and is typically used in a lower chamber such as the House of Commons (UK) or Bundestag (Germany), and may be curtailed by constitutional constraints such as an upper chamber. It has been described by some political theorists[who?] as Polyarchy. In it the power is in the hands of the elected representatives who are elected by the people in elections.
