    Definitely. The sad thing is that I don't think he'd be able to make it now.

    It's odd because I don't know any fundamentalist idiotic americans at all, but they definitely do have a big voting block.

    The problem is that there are non-fundamentalist christians who still believe that the US is or should be a "christian nation" rather than a secular one as described as Obama in that speech.

    Due to the two party system, people get divided by party over some of the most arbitrary issues. If we had more parties having a chance at making a dent in the voting count then we'd see parties being more marginalized when they choose to focus on issues that most people don't care about.

    I know some.

    Zambia declared itself a 'Christian Nation' for political reasons. Interestingly the President who did it was the most corrupt president we have ever had. More interesting is that the Churches were queueing up to take bribes from him.

    I don't think a party system works well at all when it comes to the less political issues. I think a system where peoples opinion is considered in some way other than via a presidential vote every 5 years needs to be in place (and often is to varying degrees in most contries).
