    Neither.
    People with above averages should be electors of their region, and geniuses be leaders.
    Republic = stupid because the voter votes for their party even though poplar votes say otherwise (except Nebraska and Maine)
    Democracy = stupid because it's rule by the majority which are people of mediocre intelligence = mediocracy

    Geniocracy or anarchy

    I'm still an anarchic-reformist, though when it comes to this matter I say Dictatorship. Honestly, Democracy is a terrible idea. It worked a hundred fifty years ago when everyone was around the same intelligent level, where it only depended on what you read to dictate your IQ really, nowadays people CHOOSE to be stupid, and that's why they throw away their right to choose their leader.

    The "equal balance" system in America is flawed, where no one gets anything done. Instead of working together, they just say "yes" or "no" to each others ideas, either making such a radical change that it gets denied when passed along to the next guy, or it just doesn't go through properly and defeats the purpose of the original policy. If they actually worked together and said "well what if we did this?" instead of just writing it down in confusing terms using a wide vernacular just to sound "impressive", this country would be far more advanced than it is today.

    I can keep going, but I just don't feel like it honestly You guys get my point.

    Well, Hitler without the brother dying, mother dying, becoming homeless, getting raped, catching syphilis, and being stuck in an anti-semitic city for a good chunk of his life

    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    And the Electoral College isn't a mob in itself? Money talks. Corruption is everywhere.
