Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

One evening, I found myself at the Bulgarian debutantes' ball in NY. Don't ask.
So I started a political discussion (waltz dancing is nice, I liked my girlfriend at the time and all, but it's not quite my thing) about the electoral and its effect on people realizing that they didn't really have a straightforward one person-one vote electoral system.

And this guy proceeded to explain to me that purchasing power varied from location to location, and as you carried your vote from  NY to NJ there was really no reason to expect it to carry the same weight.

Anytime I hear about one person one vote, I can't help but to think about this discussion and the utter lack of respect that some people have for the res publica .

Welcome to the age of experts...
