How can American be considered a democracy if the government has the power to ban a political party that they disagree with. Surely if the people of the USA want a Communist government then they should be allowed to vote for one. Doesn't the USA banning a party go completely against what a democracy stands for?

Surely a democracy has a duty to ban those parties it sees as a threat to democracy? Germany is considered democratic but has banned plenty of parties in the past, as has the UK.

If it makes you feel better the Communist Party does still exist and is active in the US.
