Each and every form of government these days takes up one singular aspect. There is just one guy in charge. Oh sure, some have girls in charge but that kind of looks like a charade after Maggie. There was no doubt who was in charge with her. The lesser leaders, not so much. Having said that, I harken back to what I hear was an old Athenian rule. You remember them? They were the first to have a lash at democracy. They did not by any stroke of the imagination think it was what you think it was but for want of a better word, "one better man, one vote" and they held on to this idiocy for a good long time.
My favorite though was that if anybody disagreed with the vote a way was found for him to nominate some other rich bastard to pay the tax because that dude was richer and so pass along the entire onus for building a naval trireme for the Athenian Fleet out of his own pockets.
I'd like to see the likes of John Kerry and Obama pay to build, each of them, another Nimitz class carrier or 10 guided missile destroyers, apiece.
