    Seriously, there should be a school for people to evaluate laws and leaders based on logic and they should be the voters.

    Of course not everyone would follow the rational thinking plan but the general rule would apply.
    that would work great until it was overrun by liberals and started turning out only democrats and socialists. call me cynical.

    Here nearly everyone calls a soda "coke". I've always said just soda, plus I like Pepsi better which is heresy to most here.
    why do you think government schools are detrimental to development? at what point do people need to accept the resources they are given and take responsibility for their own self actualization by using what is available to help them acquire what is unavailable? perhaps I am missing the point. I am, after all, a woman.

    soda FTW!

    The right to have an election is a civil right.
    The average citizen in fact has no right at all to vote in any Presidential election.

    Only the Congress has the right to vote in a Presidential election. (Article 2, Section 1, paragraph 2)

    So here we have an election and citizens with no right to vote in it.

    my goodness, I'm not attacking you. I'm merely pointing out that you want to keep anyone who disagrees with you from voting. even if you are right about everything, you're still impeding the democratic process. (republican, then!)

    there was considerable dissension. debate is important.

    quoting you accusing me of feminine emotional lunacy? right.

    Which is why I included the term "whenever an election is held in your region" in my first post on the matter.

    So here we have an example of me already addressing that.

    I don't pick up on "jokes" when I'm trolling, especially in this text medium and especially without the use of emotes.

    Oh my bad, you did say "whenever an election is held in your region"

    I didn't realize you lived overseas, I'm sorry
