    The Pirate party got a few seats in the parliament the first time they ran but lost them again in the last election. It's hard to keep a momentum when you are only a one issue party.
    There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who dont.

    Pretty sure its pirate as in breaking copyright laws, The Pirate Bay and such, so it probably had something to do with that.

    This is actually somewhat similiar to what we (Denmark) did in The Great Depression, if I recall correctly. We built a bridge, though. The idea is that you create jobs by trying to do something ambitious. That way you get the economy going again. For a race track you need contractors, and they need some sort of building material supplier, which in turn needs someone else, and that way the wheel starts to spin again.

    Besides, if they finish the track (which they likely will), it will make enough money to justify the spendings in the long run.

    Your ignorance is showing. Obama spent the least amount of government money of any president in the last several decades.

    If you want to draw a parallel yu also need to add that the people in greece are rioting againt the needed reforms that has to be taken towards improving the economy.

    Sahlin got replaced by some man with a fancy mustache... Håkan Juholt I believe. He was later replaced by the current leader, Stefan Löfven. Until just now reading Wikipedia, I had never heard of Löfven.

    Social Democrats really need to get their stuff together.

    I could give a fuck about past Republicans, as none are running for President, and the ones who are running to keep their other offices are wising up to the wishes of their voters for less government. Republicans who expand government in order to accomplish goals are bad. Obama and his kind whose goal IS expansion of government are far worse.

    Besides, if you take out military spending than government is expanded far more with Democrats in charge, and I want to see fiscal responsibility from the military as well, so your "statistics", which you presumably didn't specify because there is no question about their veracity whatsoever, don't create any discrepancies with my vision for government.

    really? Because I'm pretty sure Romney has both held office in the past as a republican and run for the presidency as one.

    special pleading.

    I was more thinking past Republican federal officials, didn't convey that very well. And you missed my point about the military spending.

    Sorry, but you're incorrect. I think what you meant was there has been the least amount of government growth under Obama for the past few decades. Which is true. And taxes are lower now than they have been since the 50s, but people still whinge about them.
