Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It is not about the U.S. Congress and its gross partisan failures over recent decades ... January 6th is about the bravery of the men and woman of the Capitol police and Washington DC police  left to defend, w/o support of the National Guard, and saved democracy as we know it.

Four men paid the ultimate price ...

Not to diminish the achievement of the security troop at Capitol that day, but a bicameral system elected by a plurality vote is not the democracy I know.

I've always lived under an unicameral parliament elected by proportional system where constitutionality of laws is checked before they even go to vote. It just works. And it feels like democracy.
