the English legal system is actually quite a bit different to America. for one actually votes from the people can turn an election. as it did this year. even if the idiot is still in power with his "money hording" wife :lol:

So your vote really means something over there, as opposed to they way it works over here? Cool! =D>

Voting in America

Post by aintgottaclue » Mon Jul 11, 2005 10:52 am

Actually, saying "voting in America" is kind of an oxymoron, because our "votes" don't really mean doodley-squat. If America went to the true "popular vote" system, I think you would see a drastic change in American politics (and probably foreign policy, as well).

A blue state is a state that is considered largely a democratic state, while red states are the republican ones. Democrats and Republicans are the two political parties here in the US, the democrats being considered "liberal" while the republicans are "conservative."

The funny thing is that for someone like me living outside the USA and not likely to visit (I look like a shorter version of Osama Bin Whatshisname) both the Republicans and the Democrats both look very conservative to me, just that the Reps are more so than the Dems.

They are, I get the impression, just the two sides of the one coin......

What about some real liberals, or socialists even... now that would be a breath of fresh air.

You have a good point Rainforest, I was gonna bring that up, but then that would've started a whole other rant, lol. Though when you compare just about any democrat to George W. you can see how democrats are considered liberals....or you can see how W. is just conservative to the point of insanity, wanting to institute an official religion and all that... ](*,)
