Keep in mind love is an action, not an emotion. I argue that it's both. Not sure what that means. The way I see it, there are two different "stages" of love: an emotional stage followed by an action stage. You fall in love, which is the former stage, and either things progress from there ...

Slavery and these "gay camps" are not inherent parts of a democracy. Please stick with the topic and avoid logical fallacies. I don't think those words, 'logical fallacies', mean what you think they do. Why don't you answer the question: if slavery and gay camps were instituted democratic...

Of all the influences we as a country have had on the spread of free government around the world, one institution no one else has ever embraced is the electoral college. Direct democracy in national elections works everywhere else, so I fail to see why it wouldn't work here. And lest it be forgotte...

If there was no EC then there probably would be a lot more extreme push back to immigration and demographic change, the invasion argument gains a lot more traction when you take away people's self-governance. If California doesn't think it's fair then try to leave, I don't think they'll get very fa...

In the book A fieldguide to earthlings, the author talks about how with NTs, things lose meaning over time if the meaning is not reafirmed regularly, but with NDs, there is much less of this. There is a joke about this. A woman takes her husband to a get divoroced. The judges asks her why. She reson...

I believe it's fair, considering how many voters a single state can have. The 3 million extra votes Clinton had in the popular vote could have all come out of California (just as a hypothetical example). So that would mean California alone would have decided who the next president was. No, it would...

Democracy does mean majority rule, not minority rule to ensure thier issues are addressed. So you'd be cool with reinstating slavery and putting gays in camps if the majority decided to do that, because democracy? You still have not addressed the issue of fairness. Will you be ok if it happens to y...

So you do not believe in democracy? Not direct democracy, no. Fortunately, we live in a constitutional democracy, so there are certain limits on mob rule. I'm not interested in fighting over the framing btw, so you can stop wasting your time. Democracy does mean majority rule, not minority rule to ...

So you are OK with the tyranny of the minority as long as it forces candidates to pay attention to a part if the population within a specific geographic boundary? I'm more comfortable with the evil of forcing the majority to pay attention to the concerns of the minority than I am with the evil of s...

I believe your premise is mistaken. In each of the 50 states, the members of the Electoral College did choose the candidate that won the popular vote, just like they always do. Well, this correct, kind of, but it destroys the premise of "one person, one vote", it says that states votes ar...
