Check out Miller county, GA from 1960 to 1964

I'm curious about the contrast on a bipartisan forum to this: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x3523811

what's wrong with bandit? I Think he'd make some entertaining rulings.
60979  General Discussion / History / Re: When was the last time two genuinely democratic countries went to war? on: April 21, 2005, 11:38:52 pm
Here's one I thought of: The Arostook War, although that was actually fought between a US state and Canadian province, Maine vs. New Brunswick. Of course no one died.

How about that war in Central America that started over a soccer game?
60980  General Discussion / History / Should Hirohito remained as Emperor? on: April 21, 2005, 11:31:31 pm
Of course not. This is the main cause of all the anti-Japan demonstrations lately. People in many Asian countries are very mad that the man who presided over some of the worst war crimes in history, like the Rape of Nanking and Baatan Death March was allowed to reign for a faaaaaaar longer time and was never tried as the war criminal he was.

I wouldn't think twice. I'd vote for Weicker in a hearbeat.

60985  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Casey vs. Santorum nationwide on: April 21, 2005, 10:52:47 pm
Louisiana is basically a populist state. Pro-life Democrats are very common there. Casey would be a great fit, that's why I gave it to him.

I knew of it beforehand from Democratic Underground actually, although on there they were calling it a right wing front group due to its ratings of Cuba (this was during one of the pro- vs. anti-Castro debates of course)
60987  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Ecuador President ousted on: April 21, 2005, 10:45:20 pm

Does anyone actually read any of this?

I read every one
60989  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Is the midwest pro-life? on: April 21, 2005, 10:16:39 pm
ND is not anti-death penalty. They just don't have it because they think they don't need it and like it that way to remind themselves of how little crime they have (I'm dead serious.)

I would say that while MN is de jure pro-life, many people don't let social issues effect their vote or hate the religious right more than social liberals even though they don't agree with either (the northeast is the perfect example of this.) So it's not really in a political sense. I also strongly doubt we'd outlaw abortion if Roe v. Wade was overturned, although there'd be some restrictions.
60990  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What governor would make the best president? on: April 21, 2005, 10:13:49 pm
Jennifer Granholm, even though she's ineligible.
60991  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Statements To Answer, Volume 5 on: April 21, 2005, 10:12:35 pm
1.) Disagree
2.) Disagree
3.) Disagree
4.) Disagree
5.) Disagree
6.) Disagree
7.) Tough one. I think it's immoral at many points but I wouldn't call it the taking of a human life.
8.) Disagree, science is our way of understanding God's creation
9.) Disagree
10.) Disagree, although laws on it need to be reformed
11.) Disagree
12.) Strongly agree, rape is quite common in some species
13.) Disagree
14.) Disagree, although if they are abusive they should be locked up
15.) A little too vague. Agree in the sense that ones displaying child porn should be banned (I also support banning bestiality porn), and to prevent fraud and things like that. But otherwise no.
60992  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: What would be Atlasia's Freedom House scores? on: April 21, 2005, 10:05:03 pm
Government instability is taken into account even if the law is followed through the upheavals. This is the main reason India, the Phillipines and a bunch mostly democratic countries in Africa only have 2s for political rights. We also have one of the leaders of an attempted coup about to be VP (not that he's a bad pick otherwise though).

Also 1,1 countries don't elect Naso and NixonNows.
60993  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should dildos and other sex toys be banned? on: April 21, 2005, 09:57:39 pm
no and before opebo says it, anyone who thinks so should be fed to a lion.
60994  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Is Ken Mehlman (Republican National Committee Chairman) on drugs? on: April 21, 2005, 09:51:44 pm
He's also not taking into account the awesome gerrymander the Democrats have.

The idea of the GOP taking the Maryland legislature is also asinine. The idea that they could have a veto-proof majority is bandit-territory.

Those are very backwards reactionary nutjob positions.

One said that women should always submit to their husband's decisions, another defended a ban on dildos and sex toys before a federal court.
60997  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Who would you vote for in these countries? on: April 21, 2005, 09:34:19 pm
The Shah didn't treat political prisoners too well, but for the most party he only exiled or imprisoned them. When Khomeini took over he simply killed them all, including many who opposed the Shah as well and many who helped him overthrow the Shah. Then after Iraq attacked Iran they cleared mine fields by forcing children as young as 9 to walk across areas suspected to be mined, telling them all that martyrdom nonsense if they did step on a mine. Perfect example of out of the frying pan and into the fire. Carter did try to get the Shah to tone down, it just happened at the worst possible time. Likely though if Khomeini stayed out of the way the Shah or his son could be forced to democraticize the country, or a more benign group would've overthrown him. What happened was the worst case scenario.
60998  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Breaux v Chafee on: April 21, 2005, 09:26:49 pm
In Louisiana, our Democrats are better than some other states' Republicans. The Democrats need more members like Breaux and Zell Miller. Then I may consider voting for them.

But would the 48% of America that voted for Kerry vote for a Republican like Breaux or Miller?

Oh, give it a rest already! Breaux is as much a Democrat as Ted Kennedy is. Breaux just had the sense to realize that emphasizing economic populism over social liberalism--both of them planks of the Democratic Party--would be better for his career as senator from Louisiana

I have to admit he is far superior to Miller.  One wonders, did he merely pretend to be an intolerant for the voters back home but then support social liberalism when voting in Washington?  If so I suppose we must acknowledge his heroic sacrifice.

well he did staunchly oppose the Federal Marriage Amendment and was the only senator who voted against tougher FCC regulations. And he opposed most of Bush's nutjob judges.

I don't know who I'd vote for. But I'd be happy that we'd get a decent president either way.

I say a 2,2. Too much political upheaval and unstable government to get a 1,1
