    3. IQ to vote? How about an IQ test to be president…

    4. Let’s spin the election results to favour my demographic: It’s democracy. You know, as long as it’s my demographic otherwise it’s tyranny.

    7. It’s called Parliament… if the chief executive is an idiot, then you can give him the boot. Significantly more efficient and far less painful than our system, in which the only way to remove a President from office is to put the country and the rule of law before your party, which simply doesn’t happen here.

    8. 1) The party/government whip (or equivalent) keeps the party line in a parliamentary system, so don’t think a vote of non-confidence doesn’t require legislators to defy the party.

      2) Vote of non-confidence only works when the ruling party holds less than half the seats in the more powerful house of the legislature. In theory the party in a “confident” parliament could rise up against its leader but that has never happened.

      It’s a trade-off really.

      I think the Presidential system can be just as good as the Parliamentary. The real problem comes from using the archaic ‘first-past-the-post’ election system. First of all, it’s less democratic, as votes aren’t proportionally represented and many get thrown out. Second of all, it encourages less parties, which means less power-sharing, which means less compromise.

    9. Erm, just as a note, what I described in 2) has happened on a small, insignificant scale, but it’s pretty unlikely to happen on a large scale in general. And again, the vote of non-confidence is nearly worthless in a two-party system (meaning the two parties hold at least 90 of parliament; how many parties form governments is another matter), unless the election is really close, which most of the time it isn’t.

    10. You USAders couldn’t impeach anyone, much less overthrow the government because a bunch of morons are in power.

    11. I thought Obama was an unqualified flip-flopper, not a moron? I could live with a moron in office.
