    in the short term it is very obvious that politics makes mistakes. the majority of the people did not vote for bush, yet he became president and inacted policies that the people did not support.

    in the long term democracy does not go against the people because if the people really didn't like what bush did then they would have elected a president who would have undone his mistakes and changed the nation. america didn't want to go that far so they elected obama and he hasn't done too well or too poorly so far. pending how he does with this damned oil spill.

    so frankly you're wrong. some political systems make serious long term mistakes, and even democracy makes short term mistakes.

    religion: accurate if people are always right, highly subjective, bewildering

    saul; Under the US, currently with 50 independent States and their electorates properly voted and elected Bush. This was not the first time, where what your thinking a Democracy (one vote on person for the collective) that worked out this way. The US is a Representative Republic...When you vote, your electing those electorates (not the President) and did you know, those electorates DO NOT have to then vote the way they were elected to vote?

    The people didn't like Bush? Maybe that's why he was elected twice, but if your talking polls, he actually held the record highest rating ever, after 9-11, think 94% favorable and when keeping the Country Safe, still scores very well. I most certainly didn't like some of his policies (Prescription Drugs/Faith Based Initiatives/TARP) which you probably did like, but that to me and most Americans has nothing to do with the person, most Americans then IMO liked and still like that person.

    As for the thread, I'm sorry I have no idea what the comment (no question mark) meaning might imply.

    Politics IS a mistake........ It is a synonym to the word 'crime'


    "It is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country"

    Hermann Goering


    Quite reminiscent to what bush and blair were doing no????


    I find it incredible how the Americans were suddenly all in danger when dubbya took office - and suddenly there was this pretend war on terror... ... I guess it doesn't strike all people as strange - as long as they can still fill their cars with petrol and eat foreign foods. God forbid people should question authority.

    Maybe that's why there are still so many religious people in the world.
