Can you vote here then Loz, I was unaware you were a Swiss citizens?

Its semi proportional, and often a big vote or referendum goes through where a backwards Canton with a tiny population will overrule a Canton with a larger electorate, that hardly seems to be that fair. I know most of my Swiss friends and colleagues are always remonstrating that. But you are right it is certainly one of the most democratic nations in the world.
I would argue any country where a quarter of the population cannot vote is not democratic!

As the US argued many years ago "No taxation without representation". Although as a counter argument green card holders cannot vote.
