Well. There obviously won't be Atlas Senate?
I wouldn't say that, more people voted for, than against.
That doesn't mean anything.
So, apparently Democracy doesn't mean anything anymore.  OK I'm moving to China then, where it does.  Wink

If you ask your fellow party member Opebo, democracy is mob rule, and it's good to keep it in check... Wink

I have a PM who praised China for its "political stability"
lol, Political Stability eh?  I'm giving China 20 to 30 years at the most to last as a Communist state.  I believe the people there will eventually see what their country is actually capable of, and they'll move.
Hopefully they'll revolt.

They won't. Their economy is improving and that will keep people happy for a while. Slow internal progress is more likely and would be better as well.

It would be better if they had a different government.

Yes, of course, unless it would be a hard-line Communist government or something equally bad. But  don't see a government change happening anytime soon.

Yes, it would be better if they had a new govt.; but at the moment, their govt. is at least existant. A nation of 1.4 billion people, under revolt, would screw up the whole worlds economy, especially asia's, for many many years.

A slower transition to an open, western-style democracy should be the route-and it is; with the WTO, opening up to the world, the Beijing olympics, etc.

China is far from perfect, but it is better then it was 20 years ago, and in 20 more years it will be better again, if we continue down this path.

Exactly, my opinion, I agree wholeheartedly.

What's happening in China is very like the N.E.P in Russia under Lenin.

Yep. You already are a senator in GA, so unless two more Georgians come around, since there is one more senate seat, don't worry. Just keep your seat... Smiley

In Europe universal healthcare has almost 100% support. Why that? Think about it!
In Canada, universal healthcare isn't a question of support, it's a dogma.

BTW Which Senate seats are currently available by now ? Smiley I'd like to get one.  If available, I'd like one from Florida, there's many French Canadian around Miami and the weather must be warmer than the -30 to -40F we get here in Ottawa since a couple of weeks.

Remember all of you, it takes two to argue, and it only takes one to stop an argument.

OK, Gandhi.

Mass117. Universal healthcare is dogma also in Europe, (And in Australia, NZ, Israel...) not only in Canada.
