where parliament can be dissolved and new elections held. Think of a Parliament like our Congress.

How awesome would that be? Unfortunately it requires a change to the Constitution.

America now has an extremely feeble and broken government. It's totally deadlocked and frozen. That's why we got downgraded in 2011.

That's why I sort of chuckle when anyone says America is the greatest country the world has even known.
