Global warming is the biggest con job next to the vaccine industry.
I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere, travel light, get in, get out, wherever there's AV trouble, a man alone.

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.

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

It's really scary. Global warming, which is mainly caused by humans, is causing an increase in natural disasters worldwide. Read about it here at
studydriver.com/natural-disaster-essay. Natural disasters have always posed a threat to development. Developing countries are usually far less well placed than industrialised ones to deal effectively with hazards that occur out of the blue. The first priority must be to reduce peopleís (men, women and young people) vulnerability to natural hazards such as earthquakes, floods and others.

Human impact is overvalued, it is enough to look through all indicators green guys provide, but choose a longer timeframe - few centuries and you will see the truth.

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?
