You know that famous orgasmic scene in the film;"When Harry Met Sally?" Where Meg Ryan does her thing, and afterwards, one of the diners says: "I'll have whatever she's having!" Well whatever the writer of this letter's on! Must be real strong gear! Okay! Let',s go through this haze, and pick out the highlights. " we still have a functioning democracy" You know what? If I answer this, the way I want too! I will be banned from posting! My choice of language would be, shall we say, a bit too graphic! Next! "one of the most advanced societies in the world" Please! once again, my words would be too descriptive! And finally! "damage our democracy and other institutions irrevocably and thus end up in a worse situation" Words fail me!!! "I'll have whatever there having!"
