"why would a modern democracy like the USA..."

The thing is the USA is not "a modern democracy". It's constitutional arrangements are 250 years old, and it's virtually impossible to adjust them to match the needs and the possibilities of today's world. The undead Founding Fathers still have the last word, and the President has powers that even King George never had.

It's amazing the place can even function.
