Politicians are corrupt all around the world. We as a species have a dark future ahead of us, because a powerful few will kill each other, taking the rest of us with them. All they care about is getting rich and fat as others die of starvation... sad...I'll leave this world some day....and I don't regret it. NOTHING works in this world... except war :(

"Can you vote for us? We are all going to take a piss, we will be back soon, press the "no" on all of our consoles. That is really nice of you, we'll be back."

And that's why the best way to vote is to raise hands. That way you can only get 2 votes per person...

... or 3 if it's the representative from Chernobyl.

it doesn't take a translator to realize they are doing something immoral, but just for curiosity. What were they doing exactly?

Oh lol, I thought they were workers turning on their microphones before the politicians rocked up. Now I see what's happening. ;)

It says that out of 450 politicians only 88 are sitting there to vote. Physically in good shape politicians can press up to nine buttons for their party members, who are doing something more important than, what they get paid for. Older and slower ones are responsible for smaller area.

So generally one of five sits in parliament and votes for those who are not at present.

My russian is a little bit rusty, but i think they referred to those 88 deputies signing a controversial law of 0% blood alcohol while driving.

ok for all that don't understand.. politicians use those empty seated "voting device" to vote for the one they like.. so 1 politician doesn't have 1 vote.. it has so many votes as they can press .. so the fastest one wins... peace.

Here are some beautiful key details:
One of the politicians was complaining about a rather strange law proposal about alcohol, he was right there on the place reminded - he was the one who made the proposal 2 years ago.
Another one, apparently there were 449 votes, none opposing. Speaker actually had the balls to ask "Who left the building?". By that he meant that one person that didn't "vote".
In my country this process is just as disgusting, I get reminded frequently what a wild wild East I used to live in, thanks to videos like this one.

By the way, does having voting machines mean that I do not have to vote myself because the machine is voting for me?!?!?!?!
(Thats what machines were intended to do!)

WHY DOES EVERYONE THUMB ^^ the first comment no-matter how retarded it is??

We as a species have a dark future ahead of us??? what a negative moron... maybe his past and present are dark but I on the other hand have pretty good expectations when it comes to our Species... we have come a long way and I believe that theres more good in the world than evil and Evil will never triumph.
