Wrong – read the constitution
The US has a Constitution.

The UK doesn't.

What part of the US constitution has you confused, Skanque?

The part that explains how I get to vote for POTUS?

His posts, although carefully not christian in the goddidt it all 6016 years ago last week vain are so typically christian, the incredulity that someone can consider something different to him, that someone can think, unlike him. The stubbornness in the face of factual evidence is typical of so many creationist crustards. And of course the propensity to repeat over and over and over and over the same thing again and again and again and…

It does not mean we don't vote, SCrotumLicker.

You understand now?

US citizens vote for POTUS indirectly.
UK subjects: do not get any vote for head of state at all ever.

The American president is APPOINTED, the British prime minister is elected, i don't consider America to be a real democracy like Britain and Europe are, I mean you only have like two political parties, that is NOT democratic, I had the choice of lots of different parties when I voted for our prime minister at the last election, I voted labour but we lost, that's democracy, the conservatives and liberal democrats were voted in in a coalition, that's democracy, something Britain is and America is not

In Britain there is an election every four years, sometimes five depending on the month, so is there anything else you are ignorant of, in every way Britain is a freer and mire democratic country than America, I know that makes tou cry but what do you expect, you are a nation of many hillbillies, trailer trash and rednecks, so obviously you are a far less free, democratic and liberal place that Britain and Europe, the whole world sees what America is, do you think they are blind. America is a right wing, conservative, fundamentalist old fashioned country, or from a European perspective, backward, stupid, ignorant and primitive, chalk and cheese my friend, chalk and cheese

how stupid are you, I voted for the labour party, for their leader to be our prime minister, others voted for the conservatives, for their leader to ne our prime minister, which he now is, what part of parliamentary democracy don't you understand, is it the word democracy, something Americans aren't used to I suppose, to deliberately leave out the word democracy in your constitution says more about your 'democracy' than anyone else could
