Avoiding the question again. Do you believe that both you & America are far superior to the rest of the world?
Yes or no?

Dear Sirius B...

Opining that Country's which force their population to vote are incorrect and destructive to individual liberty:

Do you really believe that a Free Individual, exercising their Freedom of Expression by their actions or non-actions regarding what they believe about Politicians on the ballot, or the Government in general. Should be subjected to anti individual freedom laws of a Government?
If not... Any Government trampling upon these people's Individual Rights and Freedom of Expression are "primitive" and possibly worse.
If so... Possibly an confirmation regarding the differences of some European and American beliefs.

Does not, nor has ever meant that one side is superior or inferior.

Do you really believe that differences of opinions means one side is superior and one side is inferior?

Yes or no?

Therefore, exercising ones freedom to vote or not vote. Is exercising an individual's freedom of opinion and is the bases of our Individual Rights as enumerated in our Constitution. It is not Anti-Constitution.
So therefor it's OK when less then the half of the population not even showing up on election day with the right to give a blank vote?
The biggest party will be "Don't blame me because I didn't voted".

Dear moomin,

Individual's decisions are their decisions. I wish they would vote.

Having Government Authority compel an individual to vote if, for political, social, religious or other reason they don't wish to.

Is anathema to any belief in Individual Liberty.

Dear moomin,

Those that believe that differences of opinions, believing one is wrong and one is right. Means superiority or inferiority.

Is an infection that many people in the Country's of Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, North America, South America and those I haven't mentioned.

The attack is just an acknowledgement that when the debate is lost, Schoolyard name calling becomes the tool of those who have lost the debate.

The Government of the USA has no Authority to compel a Free Individual to vote.

Although some of the world accepts this Government intervention against individual rights. It would be anathema to Individual Rights as enumerated in our Constitution.

I only state that when you take quotes out of context to make misleading accusations. As with the above "primitive countries".

The belief that a Government should have the power to compel, under law, a free individual to vote who wishes not to vote.

Is a very old and primitive belief of "The Greater Good" being used to destroy individual freedom.

Sorry if you believe that in this modern day and age. A Government should have authority over this political, or social, or religious or personal act.

Ok. I will narrow it down.
Let's say you move to a gated community. One day the community says that there are changes coming on that will affect you, good or bad, and they want your vote on that. Now what response would you give or perhaps you don't respond at all?

Hopefully, back to the Topic.

As posted:

Even MSNBC Joe Scarborough agrees with me about what happened to the Democrat Candidate's last night.

On his "Morning Joe" show, he observed:

“With apologies to our friends watching, last night was a disaster for the Democratic Party. My only hope is people were not watching and I will tell you why,”

“First on policy — let’s talk about the goal which every Democrat believes, which is we have to beat Donald Trump. Right? So they’re lined up in trench warfare, ready to get out of the trenches and charge and fight Donald Trump. Instead, they all turn their guns on each other and shoot each other,” he continued.

“Everybody is yelling at each other all night. Everybody like if you were watching, if you’re an American and this is your introduction to these candidates and the Democratic Party and all you see are 12 people yelling at each other, trying to interrupt each other and insulting each other, you’re like ‘You know what? I thought Donald Trump was a clown show. I’m changing the channel.'”

Yes, the Democrat Debate was a "clown show" and Trump wins again.

Any thoughts regarding last night's debate?

voting systems and counting, so much fun.

75% quorum
Lout A 200 votes
Lout B 199 votes
Lout C 198 votes
Who is elected?

None of the above is elected.

1000 registered
75% quorum
Lout A 200 votes
Lout B 199 votes
Lout C 198 votes
blank 197 votes
Is Lout A is elected?

A only got 25% of the vote.
Is the election rule 50%+1 of cast?
Is the election rule most cast?

Voting should be mandatory, just like jury duty. Don't do it, see the judge.

He once did, but...

Even CNN is admitting that people are tired of the 24/7 Trump News and are tuning out. Perhaps the reason for the rating's collapse of CNN and lower rating's for FOX and MSNBC inside the USA.

Perhaps it is different with foreign News Media's.

Yes. But why don't so many Americans vote? Because of "It's my legal right to be ignorant" or " I really don't care, do u"?
Is it illegal in the US to give a blank vote?
