I dunno. Democracy makes sense to me. It is all about the majority. It is not about everybody getting exactly what they want. Trump may not be te greatest candidate out there but if the majority vote for him then he should be president. If the majority vote for someone else then they should be president. BUT. If someone wins a majority and then due to loopholes and dodgyness they do not gain office..That is when problems happen. Trump as president is neither here nor there for me. Whether he wins or not I can't see the world being peaceful in the near future. I would say the die is cast and we are in for a rough ride whatever happens in the US

True. Although that problem in my oppinion lies with the media world we live in. not necessarily with the system itself. rhe instant news cycle driven by ratings and gossip only serves to get rid of the honest contenders before they ever get anywhere near a Position of power.

A group of politicians in the USA are currently staging a sit in to try and force gun control measures. It seems they are not all loonies in American politics after all.

I believe something like this was attempted a week or so ago, with no gains.

I think the scariest thing about the brexit is the efforts many seem to be going to to overturn a democratic vote just because it didn't go their way.

Us Police shootings .Anyone think police are getting away with murder . I know they have high crime rate but do they have to shoot each one more than once or twice .5 times scares the crap out of me where the worlds heading . for a busted tail light and he said he was armed and had concealed carry licence.
I know we don't know the full story yet but seems overkill lately.
Us gun laws are crazy. AR 15 sold by one manufacturer sense mass shooting is up 30.000 sales in a month.

I don't doubt that there is a racial undertone to some of the police shootings but to be honest i feel sorry for the cops. The itchy trigger fingers of US police is simply a reflection of the itchy trigger fingers of the general population. Think about it. Aussie cops dont come to the window with guns drawn when they pull a car over but they have to in America. Shootings are bound to happen when the situation is already at peak intensity from the get go

That's right Brett, Different mentality .My friend went over there and was pulled up twice once in New York some where no problem then in LA and it was guns drawn scared the crap out of him . If 30 people shot a day here like over there it the government would crack down .Over there their to too much into the right to bear arms . I was a gun owner when John Howard brought in the laws ,I wasn't to happy at the time .But i now know it was the best thing to do. I can still own a SENSIBLE gun if i own a property or join a gun club that's fair enough. Taking a guy out with a bomb on a robot is a new level for law enforcement ,Not sure weather to lol .
