We have open editing?
Of course we do. Does the fact that, for example, felons can't
vote in the U.S. mean it's not a democracy?
Many serious people have made that argument in all seriousness.
To be more precise, only certain states prevent felons from voting.
The practice, one can more easily argue, is one of the reasons the US isn't
a very good democracy.
Well, really, the U.S. is a Republic, and not a true democracy, but
maybe I'm just being a stickler. Back to the topic at hand...
