Note to Russians and others who are shirking their civic duty to make democracy happen. If you don't change your shirt for too long it starts to stink. It's the same with governments. If they're not changed every so often, they get really rotten. In the worst case, if you have only one shirt (leader), you should at least take it to the cleaner's (the ballot box), regularly-- and make sure you use enough soap (political competition, free press)! But it's still tacky to wear the same shirt every day, so if you can afford it, get a few different outfits (parties), and alternate. If you're too lazy to do this, don't be surprised that the world looks down on you.
