    Why don't you guys get back on topic and create a separate political thread or something?

    This thread topic is about the world as a whole, not Americans.

    Seriously - I had NO IDEA it was this complicated.
    I just tell my husband he makes love like a God, feed him a steak, and I'm done for the day. Super easy.

    Have you actually researched the qualifications of our Current President? Not the Party line, but the actual facts of his education and history. In a world that has become all about International Affairs I don't we could have elected anyone Less qualified. I'll give you no one was expection 9/11, but were we so blind that we thought it would be ok to elect someone who would need to learn "on the job" even without a 9/11

    At work and can't research, but I believe there was a independant study done in late 90' early 2000 that directly correlated a candidates wealth / $$ spent to likelyhood of winning an election at any level.

    In practical reality you're right- wealth makes certain things much easier to attain. It still stands, though, that legally and fairly practically, a middle class fire cracker of a visionary can garner support and move up the political ladder.

    And you're still talking about politics even though it doesn't have a damn thing to do with the original topic. Thanks for crapping up the thread, guys. Really.

    The reason the thread got like this was because of an argument over whether or not democracy makes people fat. Stupid really....but thats why. And then communism got brought up, then bush and before you know it. This thread has politics written all over it.
