  1. Narcissism at it again today in my view. The person in question: Donald from New York. Time for some more "anti-Trump spamming" on the board as one of his supporters from the board puts it. I just could not resist. Below is the statement of Trump in regards to the mass shooting in California from last night (suspect is still at large) and riots in Atlanta: ---> The question is: Do you want him as your President or as the U.S. President?
  2. I am on a row with polls. The battle is between electoral vote vs popular vote. Selected a few answers from random Internet sources below for each. Do you have more arguments to add? Some arguments for keeping the electoral vote include: It ensures that smaller states have a voice in the election process. Without the electoral vote, presidential campaigns would likely focus on heavily populated states, ignoring the concerns and interests of people living in smaller states. It promotes a two-party system. In a popular vote system, third-party candidates could potentially win a significant number of votes, potentially diluting the votes of the two major party candidates and making it difficult for either to win a majority. It forces candidates to appeal to a broad spectrum of voters. Under the electoral vote system, candidates must build a coalition of support across the country, rather than focusing on winning a majority of votes in a single, heavily populated region. It has a long tradition in the United States and changing it would require a constitutional amendment which is a complex and time-consuming process. It gives a sense of fairness as the winner of the election is the one who wins the majority of the electoral votes and not the one who wins the most popular votes, which can be argued as being more representative of the country as a whole. Some arguments for changing it to popular vote system include: The popular vote ensures that every vote is counted and has equal weight, regardless of where the voter lives. It ensures that the candidate who wins the most votes wins the election, which aligns with the principle of majority rule. It encourages voter turnout, as every vote counts towards the final outcome. It eliminates the possibility of a candidate winning the election without winning the popular vote, as happened in the 2000 and 2016 US presidential elections. It ensures that all regions and demographic groups are represented in the final result, as candidates would need to appeal to a diverse range of voters to win the popular vote.
