    What I know about them is they are parliamentary. I'll admit lack of knowledge from there. I don't know how they sift and winnow. Seems the Brazilians do it with knives.

    I think it's the South Korean (or maybe Taiwanese) that have literal floor fights on a regular basis.

    The Knesset is good for a few, too.

    Considering that more than 100 politicians were assassinated in the 2018 Mexican election cycle...I think we're doing pretty good in the process of elections and politics...actual politicking...that's up for debate.
