Sometimes a country is not set up to support democracy, sometimes a country needs to go through a dictatorial stage to improve.

Africa is not Europe, Africans are not Europeans. Their situation is totally different.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Not a valid question.

That was great. I haven't seen a Koopin video since your physics question. Fish pancakes though? Seriously? Also, a little too good with the knife.

The Baked one was the best, but the pancake was alright.

Yeah, I'm thinking maple syrup and fish don't go together well. Pan fried is probably good.

It is my opinion. It says that I have no hope for Rwanda. It will be down hill without dramatic change.

Rwanda, and indeed Africa, seems to be in a new area, largely due to the mass worldwide pity bestowed upon it. I think while historical trends can make a valid argument, I don't think the general Coup -> Civil War -> Dictatorship -> Coup -> Civil War -> Dictatorship is as likely to repeat itself.

By virtue of the fact many African nations have given up on democracies means in general a more stable government.
