    Or because they are more populist driven and willing to support demagogues, willing to vote for those who embody the memes associated with popular opinion, in which the public may in fact remain uninformed.

    They all try to appeal to the masses. That's how they win the election. It does seem to me that we are all in this together, however, and that is not based on emotion or fear. Rather, it's based on reason and love. Love is not without reason. Though there are many who would disagree, I simply don't see it that way.

    Why U.S. is using "Indirect System" in Presidential Elections?!
    Dayum! Al Gore must have been The President in 2000 Elections!
    But, of course, may be it was for the benefit of humanity.
    Only God knows.

    Sorry, Glen. I thought most participating in this thread were aware that I am not a Mason. I call people I don't even know 'brother.'

    Understood, but as it has a particular connotation in this forum, you may wish to use another term.
