Conscription - is forcing people to enlist in their armed forces. The population has no choice - and anyone refusing can be jailed. participation in a country's defence should be done voluntarily.

Has a state electoral vote ever gone against the states poplar vote?

Yes. In early elections, there wasn't necessarily a "popular vote". Some states selected their electors based upon a vote in the state legislature. In those cases, I'm not sure if it make sense to say it "went against" the popular vote, but it also certainly was not the same as the popular vote, because there was no popular vote. Also, there have been "faithless electors". These are electors who, basically, promised to vote for one candidate, and voted for another. This is a sort of "going against" the popular vote. In a sense, in most states the electoral vote always "goes against" the popular vote in the sense that the popular vote might be split 55/45, but the electoral vote will be 100/0. Only a couple of states "split" the electoral vote. It's arguable that we should abolish the electoral college and just use the popular vote directly to determine the President, but this would effectively weaken the major parties, so don't hold your breath waiting for it to happen.

Why was the Senate vote to declare the War of 1812 so close at 19 for and 13 against?

The Senate vote to declare the War in 1812 was so close because the Federalists in Congress did not support the war, therefore didn't vote for it. Others in the Senate voted against the war as well.

Was conscription in World War 2 a good idea or a bad idea and why?

A bad idea. The government has no rights to send young people to their deaths. If a country is under threat, any individual in the country who wishes to defend the country, may. If someone doesn't want to defend the country, and the country is under threat, it's at his own risk. No-one should force anyone to do something dangerous like go to war. If the government has to introduce conscription, I believe that each and every individual who votes for conscription in the congress (or parliament) should go and fight in the front line, to lead by example. That's only fair really. Then the people who vote for conscription will think twice beforehand. In fact, the vote should be held among the people who are liable to conscription. If the government wants to conscript 18-21 year olds, the vote should be among 18-21 year olds. After all, democracy should be about the most relevant people's opinions, and anyone who is led to their death should have some say about it. I bet someone would never vote to conscript themselves if they weren't already in the military. Better still, people ages 50-55 should be conscripted. They've lived their life. Why kill 18-20 year olds? There're future is doomed if they lose their legs in wars and for the rest of their lives they'll suffer. At least if you're 60 when you go to war, the burden will be less. But that's just my opinion. I'd like to see the people who vote for conscription fighting in the front lines. That's what I'd like to see.


Why can't a one party system exist in a democracy?

Because there would be no other party to vote for, and so there would be no choice or opportunity to voice. There would be no opposition for the goverment, so they could do what they want with nobody to say anything against them or vote them out of power. A democracy has to have a choice of different parties.Because there would be no other party to vote for, and so there would be no choice or opportunity to voice.

Why did Robert Borden give women the right to vote in 1917?

Robert Borden gave women the right to vote, because by doing so, he could ensure his re-election into parliament. If he was re-elected, then he would be able to pass his conscription bill.
