  1. Although I dont share some of Logan's viewpoints I appreciate him presenting both sides

    Style was nice

  2. Just ignore this topic. I'm not doing anymore political stuff, though this was fun to watch (the reactions). I had hoped the left vs right nonsense wouldn't be the focus... It's just so divisive and both sides are missing it.

    Bish please. :wink:

    Now, I have only lived in the US for roughly 2 years or so (I was born in the Netherlands) so to prepare for my naturalization, I have to study US history. Regardless of who you feel should have won (not even going there, I'm beyond done with the whole left-right-sideways debate), the Electoral College is there for a reason. It gives people outside of a few heavily populated states a voice, protects us from tyrannical or unreasonable rule, preserves federalism, prevents chaos and insures definite electoral outcome. Or if that is still not clear cut enough, consider this: the USA is a Constitutional Republic, popular vote is pure democracy. End of story. Y'know.

    Be upset with the outcome of the elections, disagree with Trump, throw your cat a cat mitzva (invite me, i like food). I don't care. But don't throw stones at the EC, they are not the bad guys here.. we voted for them, by eh.. popular vote. ha. Isn't that ironic.

  4. Well you need to question our imperfect democracy. We have a literal trust fund baby as our President (who as a construction magnate, building a wall is one of his top priorities...); his opponent in the race was in the pockets of nearly all of the big banks and financial institutions; you have people like the Koch brothers who basically bankroll the Republican party; corporations and their respective lobby groups pump more money into the pockets of Representatives and Senators that most Americans will make in multiple lifetimes; our entire election process is predicated on who can collect and spend the most money on who the fuck knows what (and that's not even counting the fact corporations can now make contributions via super PAC's and various other means). If you really think American policy is set by the wishes of the people as should be in a democracy, and not by the biggest bank account or potential for profit, you really don't understand American politics. Do you really think the ACA passed to help the average citizen? Or was it to guarantee the insurance companies' profit margins? For some reason, money in American politics always makes me think of this Ralph Waldo Emerson quote from his 'Notes on the American Scholar' speech:

    Thought and knowledge are natures in which apparatus and pretension avail nothing. Gowns, and pecuniary foundations, though of towns of gold, can never countervail the least sentence or syllable of wit. Forget this, and our American colleges will recede in their public importance, whilst they grow richer every year.

    While that obviously is in reference to American colleges and education (keep in mind, this was a speech delivered in 1837), it speaks to how money can, and will, undermine the legitimacy of an institution.

    Having said all that, I do agree with your sentiment, much like Logan's in the video, that we should just keep on keepin' on. It's a seriously flawed system, but it does tend to work out alright. There still aren't many other places in the world that I'd rather live than in the United States; but it's also my American right to question my government and its practices.
