My thoughts on the fragility of democracy

I am very happy with the result of the election. The right person won this time one important lesson I did learn from the previous election. However, was never to expect my candidate to win even when it seems like an inevitability because anything can happen. I think it is best for everyone who votes in any election to be patient and wait until the whole thing is done. I think one of the greatest strengths of democracy is that if the voters are unhappy with the performance of the current leader there is always a chance to vote that leader out and find a better leader, who more closely identifies with the issues that the voter cares about. I think the one thing I can take away from the Trump presidency is the understanding that democracy is a fragile thing that everybody must constantly fight for because it is remarkably easy for democracy to become a dictatorship. Another thing the Trump presidency has taught me is that we must always be mindful of those political figures that have authoritarian tendencies because it is easy to twist seemingly strong democracy into a dictatorship the strongest example of this. I think is Hitler’s rise to power because he was elected democratically. Then he slowly turned his government into a dictatorship without too many people noticing because he did it so slowly that is just the strongest example of what can happen when people forget how fragile democracy is
