Actually it sucks. Big-time. I can't think of a single thing this arrangement has produced that couldn't be done better without the black-robed tyrants.On paper I suppose, but it actually is quite effective in practice. It isn't perfect, but we are better off with it than without it.
So you are an advocate of monarchism and despotism now?I'd rather have a scholar who has been examing the constitution all his life and doesnt need to worry about reelection than leave it up to some two-bit politician who is trying to buy votes.
