5. Thanks to you both-I understand the theory of your answers-
it matches with what I told him,
but is this a 'free' country if we have to fear people knowing who we'd choose as a leader?

Something is really lacking in the workings of this "democracy"- / "free-society"
if certain segments of the population feel the necessity to hide their votes- for fear of losing jobs or worse- (the wealthy and already powerful wouldn't be intimidated by that)

It also points to the lack of freedom those of us with limited funds/social power may may have to cope with if we wanted to campaign, work, champion the candidate of our choosing.- Which hardly makes everyones impact on the outcome of an election equal.??

It hasn't always been like this has it?
