    long live vs. viva

    1. Long live the president.
    2. Viva the president.

    Hello friends,
    To me, they both have same meanings. Am I right? Which one is more used and which one is old fashioned?
    Are they used these days?

    Thank you

    "Viva" is Spanish. It would not be used except maybe ironically. And no half measures. Viva El Presidente!
