: :in terms of the range of politoical choice,

: Don: This is absurd. We have wide "political choice" here in the US. The vast majority choose "mainstream" candidates from the Democratic or Republican parties. This is the choice of the majority, which is what democracy is all about.

*Oh? So you managed to get half of the population to turn up at the last federal election did you? That must be some kind of record.
If I were you, I would be shy about using the term "vast majority".

A new spin on an old rhetorical- What if they held an election and nobody came?
