    I don't remember seeing "You'll all have to buy expensive private health insurance or go bankrupt if you get ill" written on the side of a bus.

    Tories and Labour have been sneaking in privatisation of the NHS through the back door for many years now.

    It's based on population. Each state is a winner take all for the electoral votes. It means some voters have greater influence than others from a different state.

    It's not very accurately based on population, and winner takes all means its better to have 51% support in all states than 100% support in half of them. So I'd say it's fair to call it bonkers, although it's not actually that different to our system, both are FPTP

    No it’s not.
    The number of electors in each state is linked to the number of that’s states number of members of the senate and House of Representatives.
    The vote of a citizen in some states can be worth four times more than someone from a large population state.

    The number of members of the house is based on population ergo the number of electoral votes is based on population.

    Theres about 1 member per 750k population - or something like that.

    Each state has 2 senators.

    California has one electoral vote per 712,000 people, Wyoming — the least populous state in the country — has one electoral vote per 195,000 people.

    Seems fair.

    The electoral college system of voting means that each state votes who to send as delegates when voting.

    But you did say it was based on population, which, thanks to every state having to have at least one representative irrespective of population, technically it isn’t.
    Glad we cleared that up.

    The person with the most electoral votes became president, like every other year.

    Yep that's true... now tell me about the popular vote, since you said that it's based on population

    Yeah and the number of delegates and the voting system that chooses them (at least in 48/50 states) is what I described

    It is well known trump lost the popular vote, but that's not how the us president is elected, so I'm not sure what your trying to prove, or say.
