    I guess you are living in a country without a division of powers? If Executive and the leaders of the Legislative are the same people, there is greater understanding, when the boss asks for more budget. There is less control of the Executive. That reduces the friction, but at a cost. Actually there are really very good reasons to separate the powers of state.

    BTW, only you have divided powers as such according to Wiki?

    I am not sure, what you mean. You do not know why the powers of state should be separated? There is quite a bit of political science literature about it. I just checked the German, French and English. There is plenty on the subject in each.

    The United States ranks 51st in life expectancy; we're behind Latvia! Yet the Republican party fought tooth and nail to block the ACA rather than finding a way to mold it to their vision of "freedom" and "limited government".

    I'll admit that I'm fairly disgusted by this. I think the PPACA is a POS, but this is not the way to address it. Shutting down the government is a temper tantrum. Defaulting on the debt will be even worse, and if we lose our credit rating again, that will affect who I will consider for a vote long term.

    I agree. Dems should counter by saying they want the most popular gun legislation or else they are going to shut the government down and default on the debt. I mean clearly it is ok to do this as long as you feel strongly about it, right?
    I responded to his post. Tell me though, how is adding gun control legislation to a bill that deals with spending at all the same as cutting spending in a spending bill?

    This isn't about what people WANT. It isn't even about what people NEED. It's about what the US Constitution lays out as the appropriate role of the Government. I have yet to be shown ANY part of the Constitution which gives the US Government power to get involved in medical issues for the populace. Nothing.

    As for life expectancy.... a Proper life lived for 9 years is far better than an improper one which extends for a century.
