Your proposal will be interesting, I'm sure!

It can be frustrating. Politically, I would be described as a progressive populist. The last progressive populist politician to have significant influence in the U.S. government was Theodore Roosevelt! So, even though I vote, I feel disenfranchised.

At least, here in the U.S., politicians will occasionally vote against their party's line, and the head of government is often not a member of the "ruling party" -- so that helps the U.S. a little bit. As I understand it, in your homeland, politicians almost never vote against their party, so voters are really voting for a party, not a person -- is that correct?

  • Destiny is my science fiction movie about the future of humanity. It's an epic, similar in breadth and scope to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
