US Elections

Discussion in 'CycleChat Cafe' started by Over The Hill, 5 Feb 2008.

  1. Yes, it is on too much at the moment, Yes they seem to be getting over excited about the whole thing and it is not the proper election yet.

    BUT........... before we get too smug.....

    Their President is sort-of our Prime Minister and Monarch rolled into one, but not a single one of us, the public, voted for either our present Prime Minister or Monarch!

    That really annoys me :biggrin:

    But look what they did after all the fuss last time they elected a President ;)

    Did they?

    Impressive as he wasn't even on the Ballot Paper.

    Or were you thinking of John Kerry?
     
  4. Gore was first time but given a choice they managed to go for "W" for a second term instead of Kerry.

    But if Gerry Springer stood he would get in!

    I am starting to like our "no vote" way!

    I think that looking at the elaborate and costly campaings going on at the moment there has to something better to select a leader. Our system is an improvement but still far from perfect!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
