Haha. If that isn't reaching for excuses, nothing is. There is

no advantage to appointing more barons, except to satisfy the

ego of the appointees. Barons powers do not bear on war at all,

and appointing more barons doesn't make it any easier to

choose a prince. It makes it harder.

Furthermore, your logic is as pathetic as that of real governments.

Suspending the democratic process (and nevermind that I don't think

much of democracy) for any reason makes you not a democracy, but

a theocracy (in this case). I'm actually laughing in real life,

as you sounded so much like some flunky in a banana republic

government trying to justify its recent advances in the direction

of an autocratic government.
