In the United States, people often say “This is a democracy!” (which, apparently, justifies whatever they happen to believe at the moment. The logic seems to be that although in a democracy, everybody gets to vote, it’s my vote that counts). And we talk, in broad terms, about states that have open elections as “democracies.”
Of course, that’s not exactly true.
