Real democracy: the show

Imagine how great real democracy would work as a reality TV show. I bet it would rate well in America, too.

Presenter:
The world has voted, and I'm sorry, Joe, you've lost the vote. You're no longer a US citizen.
Joe:
But what about my wife? My family? My job?
Presenter:
I'm sorry, Joe, I guess the world feels you aren't going to vote the right way in the upcoming election. Security, take him away.

Considering I just came up with that sick scenario, I should seek help, only there's such a proliferation of similar shows already. Obviously I'm not that abnormal.
