Can we just take a moment enjoy Europe's face when calling "Wake up, motherfucker!"
On the discussion on elections; I don't think the most important points are the frequency or the ability to call snap elections. Those have (arguably) both advantages and disadvantages.
The main difference is how, in the US, there is a significant political willingness to prevent a large group of the population from being allowed to vote. Politicians are willing to game the system for their political gain, at the cost of the principles democracy is built upon.
What annoys me is not that it happens. It's the utter shamelessness of their hollow, fake arguments for doing so.
