Global warming is the biggest con job next to the vaccine industry.

Do you have polio or something? You seem completely broken somehow.

Of course, my opinion may be biased because I'm a dues paying member of both the Global Warming Industrial Complex and of Big Vaccine.

Enjoy the flu, you idiot. But please keep away from the public. Herd Immunity doesn't work well if you leave your double-wide.

And, apparently, I shill for the fossil fuels industry. Still haven't received my cheque though.

I know why it exists...it exists because 233 years ago they thought it was a good idea.

So you donít.

It only feels that way when you have no idea what you are talking about.

So I asked you explain and you canít or wonít, so therefore I donít know what I am talking about? Doesnít that sound like... well never mind.

If you knew the principles behind why it was originally put in place, then you could explain to me why it needs to be changed now. I donít believe that you know either. You just know which way the wind blows.

Iím not trying to start a fight, but I am asking you to provide useful information.

A lot of us have been asking you questions in the past few months and your typical response has been "both sides do it". Very useful.

And true.

Do you personally like the concept of the electoral college, or do you think it should be abolished in favor of simple popular vote?

And why do you prefer one over the other?

As an outsider, the US Electoral College system does appear unduly complex, but the First Past the Post system, as used over here, also has its fair share of detractors. Rarely does an election go by without someone (usually from one of the minor parties) whinging and whining about Proportional Representation; a system which, I believe, serves to give minor parties greater influence than their share of the popular vote allows.

EU Parliamentary elections use a form of PR, but it's all a sham as MEP's have little power to alter or amend what's placed before them. And they certainly can't propose anything - that power lies with the unelected commissioners. In effect, therefore, the EU is something of a dictatorship; with the parliament being window dressing to provide the appearance of democracy. We are well rid of it.

I thought this was a skirmish between you and Mac, but I'll answer:

1. No
2. Yes
3. More Democratic for our Republic

OK, I get that.

So why do we use it now, like what is the concept behind it?

What are the pros and cons of changing to popular vote?

Are any of you following the climate brawl because of politics or because you follow a scientist and support their claim?
Is there a credible prediction in that last 50 years that you thought came true?
Just wonder how you got to where you are and what you think of the Paris Climate Accord and Green New Deal and if that "fixes" things for you?
I may be schizophrenic, but at least I have each other.
