What kind of politics do YOU like?

Seriously talk about your government or the government in general here.

hate politics. Democracy is okay. Communism is a good idea but executed poorly.

Communism is just in theory a nice thing, however, practically it doesn't work. I totally disagree with the previous poster, Democracy is the best known form of government. It's not perfect of course and in praxis in almost every case only possible in the form of a representative democracy, but it gives the people more rights and possibilities than any other form of government.

Monarchy is just good as long as the monarch is a positive person with good traits. People don't care about it as long as they can live a good life. However, today it's outdated and in most cases just used for national representation.

u have ur point, democracy is a bit of manipulation..., but still, is the best current form of government...

Monarchy is outdated now, but still is a good form of government in some cases (constitutional one, of course), surely better than some republics Wink

You need to control the correct functionality of the democracy of course, like you should do that with every other form of government as well. You won't get that far with the trust in the good people.

That's interesting and I also find myself in distrusting phases where I have these sceptical almost conspiring feelings about politicans and government. I think there are the real corrupt assholes, like Rumsfeld or George Bush, but that most of them are a bit underrated (and some overrated indeed). I was once on that kind of trip that I saw all politicians in the same way.
It's always hard to find out the real face, especially when these people know that other peoples are listenting and watching, however, I guess for healthy politics there has to be a minimum of trust and good will on side of the non-politicans. I don't like the demonization of these people, to a certain grade it's okay, quite realistic, funny, but I feel that many people go a bit too far.

I think that Nixon was a good president but he was f*cked over by Watergate.
My favourite president is Theodore Roosevelt.

Who's your favourite?

Also I hate political parties. They're just stupid here and also a waste of money. Anyone here feel the same?
