Thats about 0.02 Scaramucci... impressive.

Let's see if her combined reigns as Prime Minister eventually exceed one Scaramucci.

Its Sweden's largest party.

Try reading up on parliamentary democracies, and how multiparty systems work. It might be interesting for you, and at the very least you'd understand what you said was non-sensical.

Elect a Swedish woman as Prime Minister?

Careful what you wish for, or you'll end up with President Marjorie Taylor Greene. Your virtue signaling is so idiotic, you actually enraged me.

I don't know if I did that mathematically correct and I'm ashamed at how long I had to think about how to figure it out. This on the heels of having no idea what my daughter's 5th grade math homework was asking her to solve tonight.

Does anyone actually want this job? Might as well be a lottery system where some unfortunate gets picked for the role of PM and just has to deal with it.

Democratic forms of government do not rule.  They govern. Yes, there is a difference.

In practice, it's the same thing if they can make new laws.

That's kind of the point, that Parliaments serve at the pleasure of their constituents rather than according to a regular schedule of elections.

It's the parliamentary system with LOTS of parties which makes it SO superior to the US system.  So, a person can lose the popular vote and get elected with 27% of the registered voters, just because the Electoral College.

I'm not sure that any other country has a system as mad as the US. There's the illusion that you're directly electing a president, but it's filtered down through the EC so that places where people live have less of a vote than empty rural areas.

Systems where the parties that have the most seats in parliament get to run the country can at least solve a lot of issues by not using first-past-the-post voting, and can use some form of proportional representation, while still maintaining the concept of the party with the most members of parliament forming a government.

/I look forward to seeing how Fark will filter FPTP.

I was wondering how that got through the filter! Has the Fark filter finally recognised that pwning a technical political term would turn people a bit chilly against it?

Okay, so the filter still works... I wonder if "a bit chilly" is a special exemption?

\ in which case, don't screw with a biatchippy.
