    Interesting. I have a suspicion that (right and left doesn't fit perfectly here) Sweden is moving towards the "right" and due to being small some new ideas have been realized already. On a 30 year timescale Sweden isn't the same country in many ways, but the good old "Scandinavian model" is still talked about. I think Amercian rightwings would find some aspects of Swedish government utopic compared to current US standards. (The upper part of the article.) Now we need to work on our tax system, - It is a disgusting robbery! Election on sunday!


    I'll vote for the communists anyway, since I am conservative? No... I am to the right! So I vote for progression? Conservatives only want to back a hundered years. I am ultra conservative. I want things to be like they were 50 million years ago...
