    All you are doing is 'fixing' something that isn't yours so what does that make you? Perhaps a purveyor of 'fake news'...

        Neither are direct wealth creation occupations.
        Would seem you don't understand what is said and presented in the second paragraph. Leads one to wonder how irrelevant and ignorant you were as a teacher.

            Trump appeals to the 'mob.' He reminds me of Comodus in Gladiator.

            He throws them rhetorical 'red meat' at his 'rallies.'

              A popular vote / direct democracy for every office in the nation is the epitome of mob rule.

                  Every other elected office in the land is decided by popular.

                    Doesn't mean it's the right thing to be doing. I totally disagree with the 17th Amendment (direct election of senators) for example.

                        You have no right to either judge or criticize what I chose to do as professions. You have clearly demonstrated that you have no idea of long military service or how and why to teach.

                        For those who have defended it, freedom has a taste that the defended will never know or understand.

                          And none of those other offices are "national".
                          All elections that are for the sole "National" office are conducted in a manner that recognizes and preserves State sovereignty.

                            I do believe that the standing rule on the board is not to criticize anyone's military service Even if you have proof, but Esp.? If you don't have ANY proof...

                              Yes. They (senators) should be appointed. The original idea the Founders had was division of power. The People were represented by the House and directly elected.
                              Senators were appointed by their state government and represented the state they were from.
                              The President was elected indirectly so that smaller states had some say in the election, hence the electoral college.

                              Idiots and numbskulls are ruining that by trying to turn all federal elections into popular votes. That makes the Senate nothing more than a duplicate of the House. The Presidency becomes beholden only to the most populous states and the rest get kicked to the curb.

                              With a popular vote system you end up with the US being held hostage to what the morons in New York and California "think" for all intents. That is asininely stupid and anyone with a lick of common sense would be against it.
