Perhaps coalitional governments and parliaments are superior to their American counterparts. Something has gone terribly wrong in America that doesn't seem to be plaguing the other Western democracies. Their problems, when they have them, seem to be economic. America has to deal with the worst political parties, the worst church, the least effective schools, and the worst gun problems in the West.Interesting... The UK Whigs ran from 1680 to 1850ish and then evolved into the Liberal party. Now that's a brand name difficult to sell to the US. Today's Liberal Democrats currently form part of s ruling coalition with the larger Conservatives.
And the economic problems, which it largely caused for itself and much of the world.
I really don't understand that.
