      and they've had the chance to learn by observing our mistakes. (And boy howdy did we make a lot of mistakes!)

      To date almost every country that has gone for a modernized democracy has adopted a Parliamentary system. Not one, that I know of, has adopted the clunker of a system that we have.

      And incidentally, we didn't rebel against the system per se, but against not having a voice in it.

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
