Nowhere in the Constitution of the United States of America do the words "rule" or "leader" appear. There is ample use of the word "representative", yet today it seems that we are being ruled by a kakistocracy. The definition of kakistocracy is, a state or country governed by the worst, least qualified or most unscrupulous citizens. Let's look at some other cracies and archies
kleptocracy - government by those who mainly seek status and personal gain at the expense of those governed
plutocracy - government by the wealthy
oligarchy - government by a few - or - government by the few exercising control for corrupt and selfish purpose.
Those seem more appropriate descriptors of our government than
democracy - government by the people ; rule by majority ;
and it's time for an ism or two
Fascism - the unified control by government and corporate powers. The best definition and elaborative description can be found at Urban Dictionary, check it out.
