What is democracy?

A definition I’ve come across several times, from H.L. Mencken:

Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.

The level of tomfoolery I’m seeing from several presidential candidates makes me suspect that we will indeed be getting it good and hard.
