There is a better way. It's called Federal Republic. It's what the United States was at first.
I mean even better than that. A near perfect way.

Could you explain federal republic? I really don't fully understand it.

Basically, it's a balance of power between the state government and the federal government. The state government used to control stuff like zoning and such that happened withing their borders. The federal government would control interstate trade and disputes between states and national defense. So if you wanted less regulation on businesses or something you could just move to a state that did that instead of having to move to another country (which isn't even an option right now anyway). Instead of forcing everyone to have to do what everyone else said, the minority could just gather in a state that did things the way they liked it so everyone is happy. The federal government was a lot more limited than it it now, but was strong enought to protect the nation.

Agreed, the election is over and now we should all sit back and see what happens next.
