A lot to be honest, but mostly because it's harder without the map. I just did 42 seconds with a map, and can be pushed under 40, but on this quiz yeah it took me a lot of attempts :)

This sort of wide-spread naïve nihilism is a big part of the reason for the sorrowful state of politics in the United States today and one of the most serious problems with democracy.

Democracy isn't so bad, but what exists in the USA isn't democracy. USA "democracy" is actually a legalized corruption system where lobby groups bribe politicians to act in their vested interests, not the people they allegedly represent.

it's still democracy. And if you have 30-40% voting for the candidate they think is going to blow up the whole system and burn the country down, that's not a good thing, and the whole system will fall apart. No system is perfect and every country has corruption, but if you actually care about the world and people's lives and well being, working to improve the system is preferable to burning it all down. Eroding and destroying institutions usually just leads to greater corruption and bigger problems.

Is it democratic to prevent voters from registering in many states because they don't have a driver's license? It is thinly veiled so as to not be blatantly illegal but nevertheless is aimed at discouraging voters from low socio-economic groups to participate in "democracy". Nothing to do with burning stuff down, just not government for the people when you do your darnedest to prevent some of the people from participating.

I didn't say it was perfect or even direct democracy. I didn't say that there weren't those trying very hard to undermine it. I've said as much myself. But it's still a democracy. There is more effort put in to making Americans feel hopeless and discouraged and fed up with the system than there is in purging voter rolls or passing onerous voter ID laws. This works to suppress the vote, too. And you're contributing to it.
