» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:21 -- huh. but when compared, national> state> county> city?
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:20 -- and no County is the step inbetween City and State
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:20 -- sometimes
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:17 -- And 2 cities in the same state can have conflicting laws?
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:16 -- county is state right?
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:16 -- each level only works on their level
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:16 -- ok think of it like this there are levels of government in America starting from the City level moving up to county then state then federal
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:15 -- of their state I mean
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:15 -- so the 2 chosen senators don't decide the legislature?
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:14 -- each state has it's own elected body to decide state matters
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:13 -- Country wide
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:13 -- no

» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:12 -- fewer votes means each vote is more powerful
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:11 -- technically more
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:11 -- And a senator has as much say as a single representative?

» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:10 -- yes
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:10 -- And there are more representatives than senators?
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:09 -- yes
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:09 -- so congress is like a parliament,, and consists of the Senate and house of representatives?
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:08 -- the Senate is the Upper House
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:08 -- because the duties are split
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:08 -- so why is a Senate needed when you have house of representatives?
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:07 -- yes You vote directly for the candidates
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:07 -- the house and the senate together are known as Congress and are the legislative branch
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:06 -- direct election as in you guys choose the members?
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:06 -- Senate is statewide (each state gets 2) House of Representatives is broken down by district and the number is based on population
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:06 -- Senate/congress/parliament I mean
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:05 -- are they even the same thing?

» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:05 -- the simplest answer is kind of
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:04 -- the presidential election is complicated
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:04 -- well everyone is different so it varies but yes usually one picks whichever of the 2 best fits
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:04 -- And you choose the president, right?
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:03 -- they have to agree in most major points of their parties?
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:03 -- but how do the individuals come into play?
» Lightvader - 15-09-30 17:02 -- the democrats have more points that I agree on
» Revenant77x - 15-09-30 17:02 -- I'm sure there was a reason at some point 100+ years ago
