Democracy is what makes our country strong

"Plutocrats," one whose wealth gives him or her control or influence, is what most people can become.

"Capitalist," no, they can never go broke. The Federal Reserve Bank for example. The Lehman Brothers chief gave himself a $16 million salary last year.

"Democracy," last year a black and white young man beat the Republican Party using democracy -- so easy.

Democracy is what makes our country strong. 2008 was a very interesting year, 2009 will be too.
