I believe presidential voting is pointless and a waste of time. I also believe the election process is only there to give citizens the illusion they have control over their government.

I shall be proving that Democracy (voting for a president) is NOT a waste of time.

I would like Pro to elaborate on why Democracy wastes time and why it gives an "illusion that we have control over their government".

What's up, people? Pro essentially abandoned this debate.

And now for why voting isn't a waste of time: George Washington was the first elected president of the USA, and he was awesome. Case closed.

It's nice of the princess to invite us over for a picnic, eh Luigi? I hope she made losta spaghetti! Luigi, look! It's from Bowser!

(I hope you get the reference!)

Vote Con, people! Pro abandoned the debate (and probably Debate.org in general)!
