    I find this amazing in the land of democracy (funny no comments either). A timely article in our local paper.

    Doer (our Ambassador to the USA) said he's been struck by the vast differences between Canadian and American political conventions as he's taken in the events in Tampa and Charlotte.

    "The corporate, special interest lobbying that goes on at both conventions is quite overwhelming,"

    "There is very little debate on the convention floor; you don't get debates about Afghanistan on the convention floor, or debates about trade versus protectionism on the convention floor, like you would see at a political convention in Canada."

    Instead, each U.S. convention had a slickly produced, carefully controlled narrative as U.S. President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, his Republican rival for the White House, run neck-and-neck in public opinion polls.

    "You have a disciplined message but democracy, as muddy as that can sometimes be -- you don't see it in as transparent a way as you see it in Canada."

    No wonder you guys are so jaded.

    The vote result was predetermined. There could have been 90% nays and it still would have passed. The party bosses control the results. The party of democracy is far from being democratic.

    The exact same thing happened at the RNC convention the week before on a rules change vote that would take power away from the delegates and hand it to the party bosses so they can run the party how they see fit.

    Republican or Democrat, all you're doing is pick which d|ck is getting rammed in you. The ordinary people have zero control over the political destiny of the nation or even their party.

    Let's keep the language a bit more reasonable, please. We like to keep the site somewhat family fare.
