Wasn't it Churchill that said

Wasn't it Churchill that said it was the best-worst form of government, or something along those lines?

Democracy is flawed because there will always be a minority that loses out...

I think the Churchill quote

I think the Churchill quote was something like 'democracy is the worst form government but it's the best we've got'.

Sentiments that I am highly inclined to agree with, 

Democracy is supposed to give everybody a voice, unfortunately this often means that those who shout the loudest and most persistently win the argument regardless of how right or deserving they are.
