    I changed this to a discussion forum from question because there are good points that require elaboration.

    Thank you for participating.  I hope it is not an inconvenience to those who have already provided excellent input.

      Maybe as important is that IF political ideology might be balancing too .   There ARE too many dangerous and intrusive political tricks happening right  now , The mass influx of illegal  voters supporting democrats for one .   The decidedly twisted   electoral college and equally deciding election  factors for another .

        Why don't you come off from that tired old bromide? It is not illegal aliens voting but US citizens in ever greater numbers against your baffoon of a candidate. You are going to get used to it and possibly learn  to like it, too.

          I wouldn't mind it at all if it weren't  dirty tricks  of the present Clintonology !  I was just thinking  about listening to my local news program and their  asking if we can all heal after this election . I doubt it seriously !    I don't see  a changing away from an 82 % disgust in the system by polls..

          And No , I don't have to like any of it .

        It has been proven that there is virtually NO illegal voting or voter fraud that takes place in the U.S. This is another lie the supporters of Trump take as gospel. He intends to have "squads" in place to intimidate voters of color, which is illegal.

        What is legal is to have challengers at the voting places. This is a normal and accepted procedure. It is a person who is from the neighborhood, and who knows based on the person's prior voting record that they are indeed legal and allowed to vote. They know their neighbors because most districts are small and they recognize their faces. Republicans have Democratic challengers at their polling spots, and vice versa. The people who do this get paid for the day.

        If the person has no prior voting record, they would have to present documents to prove identity and address, but what that is varies from state to state. Republicans have done their best to suppress voters of color. In Latino neighborhoods, they have billboards that say, "TEXT to vote for Hillary" and it gives a phone number. It is not possible to vote by text. They are also trying to mislead voters into thinking they can vote online, and also change an early vote that way. More lies by Donald Trump and more obstruction from the Republicans.

    The world had doubled it's population from world war 2 to 1970s- 4 billion. It won't be long before the world population is at 8 billion, double again.

    We already have killed most of the animals on this planet since 1970. What's to stop this from happening to our own species.? Especially when the UN agenda is to bring down our population to 2 billion in order to save the planet.

    Limiting  children to families make Religious people quit irate. Yet, they are the best supporters of war and lack a great deal about sex education.

    Any answers?

        ahorse, do you think some people will be able to go live on the moon. 

        I understand that there are large areas of the world that are unpopulated.  Perhaps it is impossible to deal with climate.  I don't know.

          As for the moon, there are a lot of people that I would like to see go there and create a 'lunar republic'. The term 'lunatic' would take on an entirely different meaning.

          The locale just poses problems, being fundamentally uninhabitable without extensive life support apparatus. Perhaps, within the forseeable future....

          Earthlings have not discovered life on other planet. If their were illegal aliens beside Latinos. Why would Aliens expose themselves to human because we humans would go over and destroy their planet too.  For the way our greedy franchises Corperations systems works and servant and slaves have also brought it on to themselves.

        Are Caucasians included in your "ethnicities[sp]?" What are your levels for normal breeding?

      Everyone I know could be qualified as religiousand the average couple here has a couple of kids. Few have more than two. Why do you make up this crap? What religious people do you know who get irate? Mormons? Muslims? Buddhists? Enquiring minds want to know.

      I'd also like to see your data showing religious people support war more so than others.

    That's true , It is liberal ideologies  and atheist nations politics  that support wars more than theist's .

    The idea that religions cause more war is ridiculous!

      Bill Maher or Jessie Ventura are very popular celebrities too and atheist. They both would never get elected as President, a Christian elevator man would stand a much chance than them.

      US has invaded 22 countries in 20 years what combination of countries have come close to that.? US is the most Christain populated Country in the world. They kill 10 fold or a 100 fold even 1000 fold times more of their enemies. Then you have between 80% to 85% of the world populations that is Religious. Then you the hierarchy Religious system mixed military and politicians all in to bed together.

      Yes that is religulous

        This is a secular country, set up that way by our forefathers. I am sick of Christians and especially the Evangelical ones preaching to us how we should live. They have no place in politics, and the R's should not cave to them to let them form so much policy, such as birth control, abortion, family planning, under the banner of "family values."

        Mike Pence is so crazy if his wife has a heavy menstruation (or did when young) he used to bury it in his yard. As if he believes a woman's normal bodily functions are unclean. Are we living in the Torah? This is abnormal behavior in the 21st century. It was as nuts as when Rick Santorum's wife had a miscarriage, and they brought the dead baby home so the children in the family could sleep with it.

        And is it a Christian nation? We have millions of people who believe in other major religions, such as Hindus and Buddhists.

        I agree with Castlepaloma that war is started by religion more than anything else. And since our resources are depleting, birth control is more important. We are no longer an agrarian society, and don't need 10 kids to work on the farm. To save our Earth we should have smaller families.

            I never heard any of that.  Extreme things like this happen when people don't study the Bible.  I don't believe the Rick Santorum bit nor the Mike Pence.  I admit many people do weird things in their "practice" of religion.

        Over Population maybe the most serious tragedy on this planet today. It keeps harming most everyone in poverty, hierarchy, crime, parenting, homeless, illness, and jobless.

        Like putting 10 rats into 1 square yard then study how their behavior.is. Then put 100 rats in to the 1 sq. yd  then see how much greater the destructive behavior is..  That is why we are called the rat Race. Countries that have more space per person are the happiest countries.

        Who trusts the Government for depopulation and who educates trailer trash, homeless, Fema camp to improve themselves, and what lessons can we learn in hell.

            I build heathy tiny house with self substainable natural energy for less cost than a new trailer Plus tiny houses made from 95% less toxic material than the trailer trash materials. I give up, moving to Bolivia.

            I Hold Corporatism (Government) responsibility and for the accelerating of poverty and unhealthy environments.

              I am seriously claustropic.  When I watch the little houses show, I have problems breathing, especially when they climb ladders and crawl on their knees to get in bed.

              So trailers are trash.  Little house are good for the environment?

                These houses are design within a big room 16' ceiling from 150sq floor single on up to 400 sq.floor couples. Lots of lights and viewing. Since 50% of house owners are single household owners. Tiny houses are more for X, Y and traditionalist generations that care for affordable housing and the natural environment with a adobe built lifespan of centuries.

                Baby boomer are spoiled by too much stuff that often they don't want in oversizeme houses. Inside is 10 times more toxic air than outside, with an average lifespan of 50 years. About 75% of the world's trees are gone due to paper and lumber constructions. Imagine all those animals that have lost their habitat and died.

                  My house is two stories which is taxing on my bad knees, replaced hip and plantar faciitis.  It's hard to climb and too much to clean.

                  The little houses are cute.

                    I was the first full time sandsculptor in the 70s up to now, it's tiny house communities. Now, North America has become too dangerous and Corporatism often disallowed eco villages.

                    About 10% of the world's population lives in the southern hemisphere of the world with only 5% of the pollution.  My time and money are investment in centro Bolivia now, for safty and humanity advancement. It's internal spring here, how can you beat that.
