2  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could Marco Rubio be attempting to fulfill the White Horse Prophecy? on: Today at 12:41:13 am
Marco Rubio is Catholic because he was baptized as one and the Catholic Church is like the Hotel California: you can check out but you can never leave.

True dat. My father converted from Catholicism... but it definitely affects you for life.

You are a good guy, DC, and I think you'll eventually see the light and accept the One and True Church. One of my best friends, whose parents are missionaries in Mozambique, is a right-minded person like yourself, and I said he too would one day come to our side. "No, no", he said... well, just last month, he was confirmed into the Church.

I say this in jest-- or do I? Wink Forget the White Horse Prophecy...

Only JON HUNTSMAN can fulfill the White Horse Prophecy!

Hopefully.

No, he will still rally the Establishment support around him

The party establishment has other options, you know.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is not in much position to tell Islam how to "reform", either considering she is an avowed atheist who has abjured Islam altogether. "Here's how to make your religion better, but it'll still be a falsehood"? The idea verges on the absurd.

As a black Republican I can empathise with those who are accused of voting against their "self-interest", but Cruz is a bridge too far. How one can support someone who has shown nothing but utter contempt for one's faith and co-religionists is beyond my comprehension. Even Robert George, the respected Princeton professor and Cruz's thesis advisor, said that he needed to show greater understanding of the Muslim community and build, not burn, bridges. Of course, he has not taken the advice.

I have nothing but complete and utter loathing for "identity politics", but I have to agree with Xahar here, this once.

Hopefully. If he's nominated it'll be a complete embarrassment.

Flint obviously.

No, this isn't obvious.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: I polled the students in my Introductory Macro course today on: February 06, 2016, 09:23:59 pm
What percent of students voted in the Democratic vs. the Republican primary in this mock poll?  Or did you just have all students vote in both primaries?

They only got one choice. The breakdown was 62% Dem, 38% GOP.

That's a very good result for the GOP considering the demographic.

These "Turkmens" aren't actually Turkmens, right?

Oprah mattered.

Someone is actually attempting to argue that Chad and the Democratic Republic of Congo have 14 weeks of paid parental leave? I mean, surely you can't seriously believe that people on those countries are actually getting that kind of treatment. If you do, well, it says a lot about how naive one must be, and particularly how naive one must be to think this will ever get anywhere in an American political context.

15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: What happens to the GOP if Cruz turns out to be Goldwater 2.0? on: February 02, 2016, 03:19:44 pm
I think Hillary would at least win IN in a "Goldwater 2.0" scenario. Probably MT as well, so 399-139.

If the AfD is now mainstream, then the CDU has failed at the whole "no established party to the right of CDU/CSU" thing.

Can you stop attention-whoring about this? We get it. All liberal all the time.

While you're at it, can you explain the substantive policy opinions that informed your change in support? Or is your change strictly informed by a herd mentality, as you have been suggesting? Was your support for Hillary so superficial that it could be washed away by the rank desire to march lockstep with your generation, like you said?

You do realise this does not make you look good in any way whatsoever?

CBS has changed its prediction from "Likely Sanders" to just "Likely"

Likely what? CBS does not actually seem to be making predictions.

That's all it is? A supremely useless poll!

No, it's interesting.

25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Iowa SoS attacks Cruz campaign over campaign mailer on: February 01, 2016, 03:30:26 pm
I guess I over-estimated Cruz and his campaign. Wow, what a trainwreck.

Yeah, he's basically done I think. Still a fork in him. He just does not know right from wrong. Maybe he should go to Church more often or something, and find God.

And the right God!
