Is the USA a 'democracy'?

New Yorker: "Is America an Oligarchy?", by John Cassidy - http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/johncassidy/2014/04/is-america-an-oligarchy.html.

As always, the New Yorker analysis is acute. It does not, IMHO, go deep enough into the issue to start making a difference, in practice, on the ground.

With regard to complaints that this does not have anything to do with 'Math-teach', allow me to suggest that *effective* teaching of math (along with much else) during schooldays would have considerable positive impact on bringing about *effective education*, which in turn would have considerable positive impact on bringing about 'democracy' to the USA (or to any other nation, for that matter).
