Old joke: Politics is like football. You have to be smart enough to understand the game, and dumb enough to think it is important. Well I DO think it is important. Here are my ramblings of a political nature.
I live in Sweden for some reason, and one of the many things Sweden is known for is having the largest taxes in the world. Go Sweden! In Sweden we also have two political blocks that take turns messing up the country every four years or so, just like most countries I guess.
Currently the opposition is the left-green block (Social democrates, Left Party and Green Party) and the governing block is the centre-right coalition. Before the last election the social democrats had been governing Sweden for 66 of the last 77 years or so. They are also well known for having found the universal solution to every problem, just like Professor Balthazar. He runs to how machine and pulls a lever, out comes a potion, that solves every problem. The social democrats has pretty much the same idea as a childrens show – one actions solves every problem, theirs are to raise taxes. For. Every. Problem.
