I agree. However, even the earliest Olympic Games were subject to some minor political motivations; It seems that Sparta, if they weren't absolutely
certain to win any any given individual event, would refuse to participate in those events...Spartan pride, more than anything.
I just wish the athletes would compete in the way they used to...Naked. I'd bet TV ratings would soar through the roof!

WHAT IS DEMOCRACY?
Essentially, democracy is Mob Rule
, where anyone with a good PR campaign can sway the public to vote any way that
the individual can manipulate. Remember, Hitler managed to gain absolute rule in a democracy. The current US government knows this & understand
it...After all, the US government is already been showing the same footprints as Hitler left behind. The USA is supposed to be a Constitutional
Republic (see Article 4, Section 4
), not a democracy...Just one more example of our government
violating their legally-binding Oaths to obey the Constitution.
