    Parliament and Congress

    Parliament is adversorial while Congress is co-operative.

    Of course the members of Congress compete with one another by Party to get elected, but the Constitution of the USA makes it necessary for the Parties and the Presidency to co-operate, do deals, to govern the country. And if they don't co-operate, the USA becomes ungovernable, as we see today.

    While Parliament is based on the adversorial principle. Not only is there no need for the Parties to co-operate, Parliament depends on the adversory of the Loyal Opposition to function.

    And what is the function of Parliament?

    The function of Parliament is to limit power, while the function of the USA Constitution is to maximise the power of the bourgeoisie.

    Both Parliament and Congress are representative democracies.

    The people divide themselves into Parties.

    Our Parliament has a Party of Business and a Party of the Unions, while Congress has two parties of Business.

    So our Party of Business and our Party of the Unions are adversorial, while the two Parties of Business together with the Presidency are co-operative.

    Our Constitution was agreed upon by the people, 97% of our people vote in elections held regularly and often, and the people's representative in Parliament have a surprising amount of power.

    I have noticed though that those who say, Parliament or Congress are, "not by the people", are those who fail to carry out their responsibilities as citizens.

    Yes that is how the system works, not sure if "the people" label themselves

    You're really pissing around the toilet seat on this one. Why don't you just get on with the point and not with the puzzle pieces

    By not voting.

    By not introducing themselves to their elected representative at their office.

    By not telling their representative of their social and economic concerns.

    By not joining with others with the same concerns.

    By not joining a union or a political party or a civil group.

    that's a joke. Individuals band together all the time, and even more so in this year, 2012. Your generalizing statements are meaningless. With the abstract pieces to your hidden opinion which you are trying to express, all of which has very unstable foundation, i suspect some sort of schizophrenia.
