    If that's what let you sleep at night...

    Unless the problem was voter participation (among other things).
    Show this to be one of the issues The Obama referred to..

    I'm saying it's a problem, and it has improved in 2008. Is there something you disagree with here?

    YOU saying it is a problem is meaningless -- the issue here is what The Obama thnks is a problem, and how He has improved the situation, as claimed.

    But, you apparently aren't interested in actually discussing THAT.

    Do you not think there is a problem with our type of democracy?

    I think proportional representation is the closest thing we can get to true democracy at this point, it allows for so many parties to get in, and get their views across, rather then having two bloated political machines that do nothing but bash eachother instead of getting **** done.
    This type of thinking is lost on some who can only see their "side" as perfect. Don't ever suggest to them anything can ever be better, except maybe to get rid of the "other" side, whoever that may be.

    So, were -you- going to try to address the questions asked in the OP, or similarly avoid them?

    Yes - my point that you arent interested in discussing the issue presented here - what The Obama thnks is a problem, and how He has improved the situation, as claimed -- only avoiding it.

    You've proven it. Thank you.

    I haven't been able to read the article yet, but it does seem like a lot of silliness to me so far. Seriously, it's kind of a general statement that reasonable people make. We're always working to make everything better. Seems kind of silly and poor self esteemish to try and make this an issue.
