1. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? —We should continue to elect our president through the Electoral College as devised by the Framers of our Constitution.
Not Sure / No Opinion
**2. Do people understand how the electoral votes work?**
Not Sure / No Opinion
**2. Is there Global Warming?**
Only by natural patterns
Caused by humans.
Not sure / No Opinion
Oh yeah? Then why did you choose those answers?
The electoral college saves us from being Governed by the population centers.
Most folk have no clue where the electoral college even came from let alone how it effects the outcome of elections.
History has proven, the climate changes over time, just go ask a dinosaur, if you can find one.
I’m surprised the POTUS isn’t elected by the number of “Likes” or Tweets by now.
What you said Mike, couldn’t put it any better. And to add, don’t think there were any SUV’s around when we thawed out from last Ice Age. It is called Cyclical Change, ask any honest Atmospherical Scientist .
He’s in the White House and his name is Joe!
Agree though the system should be modified with something along the lines of instant runoff voting to allow 3rd party candidates a chance against the stranglehold our current corrupt two party system has on the election process. It would also make it more likely to instead of having elected politicians that almost half of the voters hate, you end up with a politician that the majority of voters are willing to settle for.
No. Most people probably don’t.
Yes the climate is changing with significant warming in some areas and erratic shifts in weather patterns in others. Doesn’t really matter if it is human induced or not. We can figure out how to adapt to the changes or ignore them and risk going the way of the dinosaurs.
The asteroid most people attribute to their extinction lead to massive and instantaneous climate change. Though there were many waves of extinction before that event likely contributed to by shifts in climate. The pace of current climate change patterns will likely just result in increasing diasporas of people caused by famine and disease spread, etc. Though I would argue this has more to do with population pressures on diminishing resources than the changes in climate. But when people are pushing systems to the edge then it only takes a subtle shift in climate to throw them over it. History is full of examples of civilizations that maxed out and then fell apart when faced with just a few years of rainfall and temperature pattern changes.
I agree that we should continue to use the Electoral College as created by the founding fathers.
I understand how it works.
The reason for the electoral college is, in part, so that small population states don’t get bulldozed as badly. No electoral college would be somewhat like having the House of Representatives without the Senate
As for the Electoral College, It is Constitutional! But, I worry for the future! With the open border, the over flooding of illegals! The democrats can place them all in certain states, to increase the population! Even if they can’t vote, they can still be counted in that area census and increase their electors!!! If its a blue state, guess what!!!
Global warming, by natural patterns! But, we may have helped a little, the lost of trees!
“Our Democracy” is code for something akin to two wolves and a sheep discussing what’s on the menu for lunch. Electoral college is fundamentally needed. “Climate change” is the most evil grift for power, control and money in centuries.
1 - Strongly Agree
2 - No
3 - Only by natural pattern
I would say “climate change” not “global warming”. The pendulum may/will swing to global cooling at some point in time.
Sind es die Menschen, die dieses Land regieren?
With all the crises under which we suffer, and which do but present a single connected picture, maybe that which the people feel most acutely is the economic crisis. The political crisis, the moral crisis, are only very rarely felt by the individual. The average man sees in the experiences of his day not that which affects the community as a whole but for the most part only that which effects himself. Therefore, the present has only very rarely any consciousness of political or moral collapse so long as this collapse does not extend in one way or another into economic life.
We are convinced that the restoration to health of our people must start from the restoration to health of the political parties itself, and we are persuaded of the truth that the future of our people, as in the past so now, lies first of all in the people. If he perishes, our end has come; if he survives, then America will never go under. There lie the strength and the source of our people’s life, the source of our renewal. The towns would not exist at all, if the blue-collar worker did not fill them with his blood and sweat. The people in our countryside may be poor, but he is healthy.
Our wish is that responsible American should once more be brought together so that every class and every individual should be given that authority over those below and that responsibility towards those above which are essential if one is to build up the life of a nation. We do not want so to educate the nation that it lives for ideas and artificial constructions; we want to test all ideas and constructions to discover how far they are capable of serving the nation’s life.
