Hopeless.
Yes. I do.

Frankly, the system is broken. You don't have the OPTION to vote for anyone that is particularly good and if you did and they won, they wouldn't be able to fight the OTHERS that are out for themselves.

But by picking the least worst, you can at least limit the damage.

It is better to do what you CAN than complain about what you cannot. And more honest to stick with truth, than to adopt a comfortable lie.

Funny thing is that this is all based on the IPCC and their flawed reports. Reports that had people calling for the head of the IPCC to step down.

The funny thing is that in about five years the idea of global warming will be considered silly and those "in the know" will be babbling about an approaching ice age. Of course they will not be talking about in ten thousand years but in a 100 months and telling everyone the solution to stop it is changing everything. Using solar and wind and stop using oil and coal because the particle are blcoking the warming rays of the sun.

Not broken, just badly bent.

Probably because there's no such thing as a good politician.

Have you considered taking up sooth saying?

Only if the side 'you' vote for wins.

Yep, sooth saying is the way forward for you.

Now that's where your argument falls apart and you're hoist by your own petard.
