I've read a good chunk of this thread, but not all so if this point has been made already please forgive me.

Many people in America (and I would say maybe world wide) consider the President of the USA to be the most powerful person in the world. I think more people are willing to trust someone who answers to a higher power as something that might keep him in check, whereas someone with no such beliefs would essentially be above the law with no one to answer for. I would surmise that this goes doubly recently where it's been the other branches of government are largely ineffectual.

Not that this in any way makes logical sense, but people like the idea of everyone having to answer to someone.

I'm pretty sure the president answers to the citizens, or at least that's what someone once said....Kennedy maybe? I can't remember. Even if I just imagined it doesn't it sound better that the president answer to the people rather than an imaginary "higher power"?

Well firstly, it's just a thought I had after reading through the forum, so consider this more thought exercise of an opinion than societal political position. Secondly, it may or may not be imaginary to them. Thirdly, the citizens really have no say over reprimanding the president. The best they can do is not elect them for a second term. In some ethereal way, yes the president answers to the citizens, but you're under the assumption the president is president out of duty to his country, and not some power hungry corporate politician. If the president isn't working from a position of duty to citizens, then they wont be the the president answers to.

I remembered it was actually on a Simpsons episode when George Bush said his bosses were the people of the USA, all 250 million of them.

Don't be fooled I'm well aware that the president isn't doing this out of duty for his country, and I know your post was just a thought. It just sounded really good in my head that the leader was doing it for the people....

I want to see the positive spin Sony will put on the move, if that's even possible.

I want to see GTA5, the new Sony and MS consoles, Half Life 3, a brand new and overhauled CoD, Bethesda's next project, Gearsbox scrapping that ridiculous BIA game, and actual games I care about on Vita and 3DS.

Obviously none of the obove things will happen but I'll be content with just footage of Assassin's Creed 3 and awesome GB late night podcasts :)

Fluent in 3 languages, and I mean fluent; not "I took 3 years of spanish" like some people here.

Get yourself a nice bottle of Creme the Menthe and have fun. Just don't drink a lot because even though it tastes sweet it will destroy you very quickly; but then again why drink if not to get that awesome feeling?
