Only in theory. We *supposedly* have rules that create checks and balances, but as the 45 administration has proven, these rules are utterly dependent on a gentlemanly willingness to abide by them and an assumption that an evil-doer in power won't be abetted by the other branches of government, or the assumption that most individuals in elected positions will really do what's right for the country and by 'the country' I mean the best interests of EVERYONE.

And all the challenges to the results of the recent election aren't as cockamamy as they seem on the surface. They are a test of what the limits to US democracy really are.

Does he drive a Lotus?

Whoever started this hissing contest needs a hobby other than fomenting unrest on a site which provides its own unrest, based on the cars. :D

Really, give it a rest, if I want to view politics it won't be on this site - can we get back to the cars please?



Did you miss that this was a joke?

As for giving it a rest, I’m a bit bored with the thread too hence me posting a joke to lighten things up a bit. But you know what this thread or any other on here, if you don’t like it you don’t have to read it. Stick to the car forums and don’t go in Free Parking which is for non Lotus content.

I got the predictable, obvious and weak joke.

Doesn't change what I said though...the person who started this thread needs to get a hobby which doesn't include clown hats.
