When you don't bother about Barefoot anymore, you posts increase.

YOu don't vote for your head of state at all: you have no say. I have EXACTLY the same amount of say in who is the head of state in the UK as you: none.

I have the same amount of say of who is the prime minister as you: none.

Zero.

You do not have a vote on who is the prime minister because the prime minister in the UK is APPOINTED.

The POTUS is ELECTED.

I have say on who is the POTUS; I am a citizen of the US.

You do not.

Let us know when you learn the difference been "appointed" and "elected" and we can move on.

Can’t ever say I met any Brit. who denies that the American had involvement in the world wars.
I guess you been following this thread or suffer from an acute case of very short memory loss.

Why not jump back fifty pages or so and see what you said in diminishing the critical role the US played in saving your bacon.

You do remember not being able to find any proof that the Royal Navy had more ships than the US before WWII?

There is a thread from the X I put on my ballot connected to who is the POTUS if I vote for the person who is ELECTED POTUS.

We- CITIZENS of the USA- do elect the POTUS, our head of state.

Do you already forget telling us the POTUS is appointed?

Projecting, eh, Skanque?

Maybe if you had only allowed your ex to win one argument over the years? If you had only uttered the phrase "I was wrong"...

Thank you for admitting it at last that the Electoral College votes for who will become president.
I have NEVER EVER said otherwise.

And you have insisted that the POTUS was appointed.

Do you want me to play back the tape, you silly t\/\/at?

So thanks for admitting that the POTUS is elected... as I have mentioned maybe fifty times.

I don't know or care if your children pray at school.

I do not by UK law that schools REQUIRE collective Christian worship and I PROVED it by posting the law which of course you cannot refute.

We have a speed limit on the freeway near my house which makes it unlawful to travel at 66MPH.

More people than not exceed this limit.

Yet the law stands.

The British prime minister is ELECTED you dumbass, whichever party gets the most votes, their leader becomes prime minister, its called parliamentary democracy and is far superiour and more popular than the defunct American 'democracy'

OH SKANQUE! You have moved the GOALPOSTS!]

HAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

You told us the 'fist' enigma was captured from the submarine!

HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH!

And it was **ME** who told you that the first enigma (S) was not captured elsewhere before the more famous capture from the submarine.

You do remember when Packy was insisting the British captured the U505 and I had to inform him it was the Americans who captured the U505 and you jumped into the conversation without reading as you always do screaming that I was wrong?

And that you tried to recover by insisting the Brits captured the fist' enigma from a submarine and I informed you that even that was wrong?

The USA had more ships, as I proved with my post and you were unable to disprove, outside the blip when the USA gave the UK fifty destroyers to fight in the Battle of the ATlantic for access to UK bases.

You know, when you were insisting the US did little in turning back the AXIS in WWII...

Without regard to the actual fact that the PM is appointed by the monarch.
