Good Afternoon, Don

May I ask something about your post?  As written, it implies that you 
equate voting and democracy.  As you said in your post of March 15th, 
"Democracy is difficult to define." and I want to be sure I'm drawing 
the correct inference before I respond.

Is it your belief that a political system, to be considered a democracy, 
must incorporate voting?  Would you consider any other means of 
determining the will of the people?

These seem like important questions for me to understand before I delve 
into the matter of 'desire and ability'.
