This will be my personal opinion, not an objective view of an ideology.
I feel that there are major problems with democracy. Most people in the western world herald it for being the best governmental system, and there are no exceptions when it is taught in schools. To me, there are several different discrepencies within democracy; and republics for that matter. Of course, though, no system is perfect.
For one, people are stupid. You need a very educated populous to have democracies work, and in America, we do not have that. It can be annoying when you see a candidate that is either so obviously corrupted, or not fit to be in public office, win. Democracy incentivizes the politicians and those in power to create an ignorant population, so that they will bend to the will of the ruler.
Tyranny of the majority, or 'mob rule' is a very significant side effect of democratic systems. An example of this is the very split opinion of the American people on abortion. There is no appeasing the people on this issue, and the votes for/against can be as close as 51% vs 49%. In the case of a democracy, the 51% would rule, even though virtually half disagree.
Democracy also fundamentally can not be as efficient as autocratic rule. The time it takes to elect rulers and pass laws through congress is not efficient enough to keep up with the changes that can happen in a country. This can be seen in many countries today, as congressional establishments scurry to update laws and regulation.
Overall, democracy has many faults that are intrinsic to the system. They can not necessarily be solved, and can seriously hurt the people it tries to free. Though it does provide a certain degree of power to everyone, that does not mean that giving that power is a good thing. People do not recognize what they have, and it only makes politicians find loopholes in the system.
