Oh I know, that's what you critzed remember?

Do you want a change, or do you wanna keep it?

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.

I wouldn't say that Bob. Switzerland houses some of the most horrible people and companies on the planet. Its also a tax haven. These alone are the reasons why Switzerland *seems* so stable. Nobody will f*uck with the people that live there. But make no mistake, these nasty capitalists that we know you hate so much? 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!

This. Switzerland has become less of a country in the past 50-60 years and more of a base for the rich and powerful.

Dunno what you guys are talking about, but we were talking about its election system and in that aspect Switzerland is a front runner in my eyes because of its Direct Democracy. You guys are talking about something completely different.

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

Thats the thing, in Switzerland the "dumb masses" are littered with rich capitalists. So it stands to reason they would want a direct vote. Apply that shit to your average "dumb masses" country, like the UK, and it'll all go to shit. The thought of giving your average UK citizen direct power is scary.

But yes. I agree with Bobby in essence. If you have a country with a well balanced educated population, then direct diplomacy is the way to go. I'm just not sure such a country exists.

Is Dudeabides updating/changing the odds in the poll?

It's very hard to imagine that Herman Cain was such a favorite back in April.

Yes, I put 50k down on Herman Cain months ago when the odds were 50/1.

Who ever changed the odds needs to quit f*cking around and change them back.

Why doesn't he?

What is wrong with the elections system in the States that the only intelligent and honest person out of all the Republican candidates has one of the least chances?

Republicans have to vote for a representaive right? That's how it works right?

Ron Paul is really the exact opposite to your typical Republican candidate which attracts him even for me.
I don't know what the deal is with him being in the Republican party though.

I don't know quite how it works.. can I vote for him? Is it possible to vote for a democrat one day and choose a republican the other? If not why is that??

Why do you have to be a registered Republican in order to vote for let's say Paul?
Isn't that cutting off your voice??
