I am sorry, but your statement, although it reflects a widely held positive feeling of hope, is at its roots but wishful thinking. Government does not follow anyone's wishes, neither yours, nor those of elected politicians, nor even the dreams shared by a majority.
Government is a stable phenomenon that has a reality of its own; its laws of behavior are knowable and can be studied scientifically, both qualitatively and quantitatively, both in its historical kinematics and in its causal dynamics. If you're intelligent and you genuinely care, please learn the basics of your topic before you issue opinions.
Regarding Democracy, you may start with the Nobel-prize winning "The Calculus of Consent" by Buchanan and Tulloch http://www.econlib.org/library/Buchanan/buchCv3.html
and continue with more recent work such as "The Myth of the Rational Voter" by Bryan Caplan.
On the other hand, if such statements are all about grandstanding, feeling rightful, and gathering general approval, then it's indeed more helpful to issue opinions based on the beliefs of ignorant people than to learn anything.
The very best thing a man in your position can do is not to take sides, express hopes, or try to take an active role: it is to use the formidable machine you possess to make the reality of government, as known and as knowable, painfully obvious.
