Re: "You are not a scientist!"

Okay, I don't have too much time to respond to this (I'm sure brimstone will be much more concise), but I'll give you a start. Since you're arguing with a moron, try using his own logic against him. Ask him if he himself is a scientist who has authority to speak on the issue. By this guy's logic, yo...

Re: Should The Senate Be Abolished?

I never wrote that the POTUS is more powerful at "passing laws" so the fact that some dictators have more control of their laws is irrelevant. I suggested that the POTUS is one of the most powerful people on the planet. I was referring to your point about how the President is still one of the top t...

Re: Should The Senate Be Abolished?

That was the whole point of the war and his generals told him he wouldn't be able to win the war so that comment means absolutely nothing. ??? I agree, it was a lost cause, and Johnson probably knew that. But why would he dispatch so many more troops, which involved a draft which weakened his popul...

Re: Should The Senate Be Abolished?

You're never this much of an asshole Jebus, I'm surprised. I never wrote that the POTUS is more powerful at "passing laws" so the fact that some dictators have more control of their laws is irrelevant. I suggested that the POTUS is one of the most powerful people on the planet. True. Is this an inhe...

Re: Should The Senate Be Abolished?

So are you saying that the POTUS isn't that powerful because there are checks and balances? How many people can you think of who are more powerful than the POTUS? How powerful can the President be if he or she doesn't have Congress or the Supreme Court on his or her side? This shows a lack of knowl...

Re: Should The Senate Be Abolished?

Giving too much power to one person is bad for the U.S. and very bad for the world. Vietnam is a good example of how the US presidency fucked things up in a major way. It could get much worse than that though. The US presidency could also fuck up the world economy. The Presidency is designed to mak...

Re: Should The Senate Be Abolished?

Care to explain??? According to the constitution, the POTUS isn't allowed to declare wars. Yes, they declare wars, they just need Congressional approval if they want to go to war. If it's going to be a not against a sovereign nation (such as the Confederacy), they don't need a declaration. Sure, Co...

Would be better to get rid of the presidency.
Why?

One of the major reasons why we have a President is to have a leader during wartime; it'd be inefficient to rely on Congress to order the Military around.

Should The Senate Be Abolished?

CPG Grey made a remark in one of his Q&As about how, if he had the power to make three amendments to the Constitution, he said that he would abolish the Senate's equal representation of 2 senators per state and make it proportional representation, like the House. While this does sound like an intere...
