    And your point is.....?

    Are you paying attention to what is happening in the USA? Do even know what I am talking about when I mentioned Alabama? In case you are unaware where you are read this https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-48275795

    To all other posters on this thread, please note that my last post was aimed squarely at KonichiwaRN as s/he made a general comment that was blatant nonsense. I do not think that all Americans lack compassion. In fact some of the nicest people I have met are American and I know that most will give when required but Konichiwa embodies the worst of you.

    Really? Compassion? Giving? Then why are there so many homeless in America? https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/dec/05/america-homeless-population-2017-official-count-crisis Where is the compassion in your healthcare system that allows children to die because their treatment is classed as "experimental"? Where is the compassion for 12 and 13 year old girls who get pregnant in Alabama from rape?

    And I pointed out to you here ^ that trying to change the system is not new. Are you seriously trying to tell me that something brought in in the 18th century has no requirement for improvement in the 21st century? Do you understand what amendments are? "Notwithstanding the founders’ efforts, the electoral college system almost never functioned as they intended, but, as with so many constitutional provisions, the document prescribed only the system’s basic elements, leaving ample room for development. As the republic evolved, so did the electoral college system." (https://www.history.com/topics/us-presidents/electoral-college)

    I don't know, 2.8 million more votes than your opponent is pretty convincing. It is only the system that America uses that meant Trump won. Not sure what that has to do with you being or not being an RN. ETA; if you are going to give TV clips it would be good if they were relevant to the discussion and not some random nonsense.

    I agree, but I can't think of one sentence that they have written in all their posts that leads me to think they are an RN. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong and I will apologise immediately.

    Not the first time; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral_College_abolition_amendment "These are the tactics that has been used by countless of Dictators during "their" rise to power." I agree but... https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/donald-trump-incitement-violence/ https://www.commentarymagazine.com/politics-ideas/campaigns-elections/trump-rally-violence-begins-again/ http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2018/11/trump-isnt-inciting-violence-by-mistake-he-just-told-us.html https://www.politico.com/story/2018/10/26/trump-midterm-campaign-rallies-941584

    Where the blank did you get this? I have already told you that I was taught about this stuff when it was still fresh in peoples minds after they had spent 5 years fighting against it. Try to get a more balanced and accurate view of history than this criminal who required a pardon from Trump. "Reminds me of a certain party here in this nation." Certainly does, D'Souza is a rabid conservative. https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Dinesh_D'Souza (Mussolini was) Originally a revolutionary socialist, he forged the paramilitary fascist movement in 1919 https://www.history.com/topics/world-war-ii/benito-mussolini https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benito_Mussolini http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/historic_figures/mussolini_benito.shtml

    Unfortunately your leader thinks otherwise. He seems to really, really care what Putin, Xi, Kim Jong Un, Orban and the Saudi leaders think of him.

    No you can't! Because Mussolini was a FASCIST AND RIGHT WING. The very thing ANTIFA are protesting against. Out of curiosity, what do you call this? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-47208909 And for clarity, the reporter with the cameraman is blind. So a big tough "conservative" attacking defenceless people.

    I think I have a reason for the silliness of KonichiwaRN's antics when he replies. He is a new immigrant to the US and also a new citizen. English would not be his first language so there are problems with translation. He seems to be inordinately proud of being an American so feels that America (his America) is perfect. He will quote some of the writings associated with America - the constitution, the declaration of independence etc. but does not understand the nuances of the words. He sees the conservative side of American politics as the way to be and the values he espouses to. "Socialism" of any kind is anathema to him. If he is a nurse he is very proud of that and will have no disagreement with the American healthcare system. What made me think this is the reply to me on page 15 where he said. "Bye bye. Meanwhile, we'll be voting". He seems to be under some impression that other countries do not vote. Have a think about it folks and if you agree or disagree. Either way I am being charitable here.

    Have you read the constitution? I presume you have. I haven't but I am aware of the 13th amendment. Are you aware that it still legalises slavery? Granted in certain circumstances but slavery nonetheless. What happened to "created equal." Presentation? How about Charlottesville? That presentation by Unite the Right caused death and injury. BY THE RIGHT. You keep bringing up brownshirts and blackshirts and Mussolini but these were Fascists, a RIGHT WING organisations. "We cast our votes to speak here." (Sorry in advance to my American colleagues for this.) Did you see the result of the presidential election in 2016? Did you also note that 2.8 Million voters were not allowed to speak, their votes were ignored because of the electoral college system. Also America has a very high percentage of disenfranchised citizens. You are sounding like exactly what you are, a recent immigrant who knows the words but does not understand the reasoning or meaning behind them. I have no problems with immigrants - Scotland likes our immigrants. So please feel free to spout out the stuff you have learned but please, please read something with a world point of view. Learn a bit about geopolitics and also the broader picture of your own adopted land. Good luck to you.
