With this logic you are suggesting all future conferences should be
held in Europe?
To be fair to the minority shouldn't the conference be held in the US
every third or fourth year?

I believe we should resolve this issue as well, and the sooner the
better. Not the actual location but the continent on which it will be
held on a given year. I recommend a three to one ratio, then at least
we will have some idea on the location of future conferences.
  Then we can vote on the locations within a given continent and not
have to squabble each and every year over continent and location.
