Not saying that our system of election is superior in any way, not AT ALL!! But at least it gives you a couple more options to choose your dicator

I actually believe that Switzerland is a front runner to be honest.

The kind that only want to become richer and dont give a shit about the rest of the world?? Well, there are a LOT of them based in Switzerland. It is one of the worlds capitalist power bases.

As for the topic of the thread? Ive got no idea!

bobby has a point. direct democracy is an alternative to our system but, I disagree that it is better. With direct democracy you are depending on the dumb masses(say it quickly for proper effect) to vote on sometimes very complicated issues. I prefer to elect representatives whose judgement I trust and whose job it is to know more about those issues than I have time to learn.

Ps. Nice job Bob. that's one down and eleven more to go
