Second Round

Today is the second round of the election in Finland, where they are electing President. Mum wonders why they have to have two rounds, instead of chosing electors who can make an informed choice of there would be a tie from the beginning. I wonder why they have to have any election at all. Many countries do without, like Sweden and Japan. We have hereditary monarchs instead. A hereditary monarchy gives much more stability to a country. Look at Japan, where the same line of Emperors have ruled for millenia. Look at the United Kingdom, whose Queen have ruled for sixty years tomorrow. The United Kingdom is the country where modern dog breeding and dog shows were invented, so they must be clever there. I believe Finland would also be better of with a monarch.
