The rivalry between these two animals taken to the next
Both are seated at their podiums that are equipped with
"translation" buttons. The issues are simplified into
languages that cats or dogs can understand. The
is posed in the form of a treat being offered or not
If the animal hits the "Dispense treat" button,
they've answered in the affirmative.
So a typical translation might be "Should the U.S. not
trade sanctions on other countries that seek to undercut
American manufacturers if those countries (through
proxy donors) are financial contributors to
your campaign?" The answer to this question is simplified
as "Do you want a treat?" YES or NO?
Next question: "Should we have open borders that will
assist your party by swelling the voter rolls in your favor
and lower wages paid to unskilled workers making you
other upper class cats/dogs like you richer?" ("Do you
a treat?" YES or NO?)
Further, this idea could be modified for human debates
that there could be a sign above the politician showing a
number and ringing a cash register sound when that
politician extols the virtue of various plans they support.
"I completely support drug companies right to pay
to prescribe highly addictive opioids that have no success
at all in treating long term pain issues!" (sign above
debator) KA-CHING! "$175,000 CAMPAIGN DONATION!"
Debates are an important way to work out the problems
society faces. This would make them more fun. Plus dogs
and cats are cuter than humans and you could even dress
up in little suits and ties.
