Do you believe democracy is always right?
Hypothetically speaking, let's say you ran an election and you were the only one counting the ballets... and the difference between the ballets were extremellllllly small (single digits). And let's say the guy you did NOT like [in fact, you strongly hate this person] ended up winning the election by a small marginal vote.
Would you have let that guy win or would you announce the victor as the other candidate which you liked more because you knew the other candidate had EXTREMELY better credentials and knowledge and lost merely cause it was a popularity contest? Would you destroy morals and announce what you felt was better for society?
Would you have trusted democracy?
