^has my vote.

On a more serious vote, anyone else think that the American politics system is flawed on a deep, fundamental level? *draws attention to debt crisis* in china, American politics is honestly a bit like watching a drama tv series.

LMFAO!!

BTW, EVERY government is flawed. The only concept that is not flawed is the concept of a plutocracy ruling the world these days. :)

China views it as a drama series because the chinese government doesnt give the average citizen a say in what happens to the government... or they don't say anything to no one.

Yeah in china you have heavy censorships. But tell me even in democratic countries, how much of freedom of expression do we REALLY have. I mean I know its better than China in many ways, but what am trying to say is, what use is a freedom of expression, if we aren't able to bring about a change?

Yeah, but not as fundamentally flawed as the US one. It's ridiculous. Instead of what can i do for this country, it's how do i screw the opponent over.

Its not that the US government is fundamentally flawed. Every democratic nation will have a flawed government simply because everyone is allowed to state and enact their views. This is how it is, and this is how it should be. The reason is that nothing can be perfect. And everyone should be able to say or do what they want.

Now coming back to the US, you gotta list down what flaws you see. I see a major flaw in the way they handle their foreign affairs. Basically it is like this: I see you sitting on some *CENSORED* I want, I will destroy you, take what I want and then justify it. Many Americans might feel that domestic issues aren't handled well. But this is the nature of today's society. Its always a continuous work in progress

The Chinese government on the other hand is completely inhumane. The largest death penalties, media censorship, extreme secrecy, complete state control of everything reducing personal rights etc. When I see that, Id take the flawed system that countries like the US and India follow anyday over China's communist government.
