Nobody is too stupid to converse with. That's downright superstitious.

Haha what a funny straw man.

Trying to take the attention off your erroneous original post now?

Most of the discussions here in this forum are fallacies, not Philosophy.

YOU YOURSELF have some pretty cute fallacies yourself. That straw man was very funny.

Presidents to make new laws -- Presidents to get rid of laws -- that's funny. You must have gone to public schools and slept through your Civics classes.

With Harry Reid covering his butt, BHO got away with that for a while, but those days are over.

Ryan and McConnell can impeach and expel BHO's butt if he tries to pull that crap again -- and with WJ Clinton the GOP has already proved they will do it with the least of provocation -- Monica Lewinsky to wit.

Funny though that you regard this as "normal".

So would you be socially conservative as well as fiscally conservative? And how do you feel about the three candidates?

As far as social conservatism I believe in marriage whether straight or same sex.

As far as fiscal conservatism I believe Keynesian economic principles, but it is troubling that ever since Reagan the USA has been stimulating its economy nonstop with massive deficits.

I believe Hillary is the most qualified.

I believe Trump would be a horror.

Bernie is a nice old Jewish communist who belongs in Russia not in America.

Everyone should have their own guns -- one carbine and one pistol at least.

If you hunt then another gun for that sport.

Everyone should always vote. If you don't like the candidates then vote for the lesser of two weevils.

Hillary is the lesser of all these weevils right now who are left standing.

By changing the subject hopefully you have figured out and conceded that the POTUS does not make "new laws" or "end laws". That would call for impeachment and dismissal.

Duh Reagan and Hilary are neoliberals economically. The only Keynesian candidate is Bernie.

I agree with you on marriage. What is your stance on abortion?

Could you give me a quick explanation of Keynesian principles? Does the fact that we have to keep using stimuluses (?) stimuli (?) imply a shortcoming in capitalism, or in a version of capiltalism?

I agree on Clinton and Trump.

What is the difference between a communist and a socialist, and are you deliberately calling him a communist, when he's a socialist? If so, why? Is it appropriate to perpetuate propaganda?

What of the shooting that just happened? You say everyone should have a gun. Should the murderer have a gun? I have a solution for the gun control issue: we control guns, except for people willing to join a civilian run army of civilians. That would actually further the intention of the second amendment. What do you think?

I agree we should vote often, but I disagree that we should vote for someone we do not support, unless it is a special case. I'm voting against Trump, and Clinton has a better chance of winning than Sanders. I heard some terrible things about the Donald, and his character is shitty. People are less likely to do their best job if they are working with and for an asshole.

As for the game, I conceded automatically. I do that when I'm mistaken. The point of the game is about laws and customs. So really it's: if you were the dictator of the US.

You only get 20 Questions and you are running out.

These red herrings are good too. Almost as good as your straw men.

Hopefully you have learned your civics lesson for the day, that the POTUS does not make new laws or change old laws.

For a greater understanding of abortion please read Roe V. Wade.

For a greater understanding of Keynesian Economics you are going to need to go to grad school. There is no easy way to get you up to speed on this.

On the difference between Communism and Socialism you should read "The Communist Manifesto".

And yes, everyone should have a gun. That genie is out of the bottle and is not going back in.

Everyone needs their own carbine and their own pistol.

Ideally they should carry them both with them at all times.

But in the anti open carry states this is not possible because those states have infringed the rights of the 2nd Amendment.

Can't imagine any one 'cept a crazy person wanting to be president.

King, now that's what a body ought to strive for!

Were I king, I would be extraordinarily fair.

EVERY ONE goes to jail...yer ALL guilty of crimes against the Crown.

You can keep yer heads...got no use for those.

As I thought - even the most polite and considerate attempts at debate result in childish obfuscation.

If Yios has any appreciation of Keynes; the difference between communism and socialism; the economy ideology of Reagan; or indeed any of the matters he's made claims about, he has gleaned such information on the back of a packet of Cornflakes. And has shown not the least ability to understand any of them.
Tragically this is the average voter in the USA.

A wise man once said to me that no one ever got anywhere by overestimating the American public. Yios and his peers are going to get exactly the president they deserve.
Trump or Hilary - its business as usual in the Whitehouse.
