United States (US) citizens get a lot of lip service from our government about that we have the best democracy in the world. The real problem, however, is that the 1% of US citizens who run the government hates the rest of the 99% of us. Therefore, the US is not a democracy.

Most Puerto Ricans believe that Puerto Rico is a democracy, because they have elections every 4 years. That, however, is a camouflage for 123 years of US colonialism.
The US government (USG) militarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony in 1898. The US is committing a crime against humanity, by never having complied with the United Nations’ Charter that prohibits colonialism since 1945. Moreover, the USG has ignored, with impunity, 40 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
If we want a real democracy in the US, we will have to engage in permanent resistance to make it happen. If not, it will continue to be just an illusion! https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
US democracy is an illusion!
