This is why the Democratic Party loses elections.

Because most Democrats are like the people on the site. Right. Remember, I'm considered a moderate there and I voted for the second option. Which is winning, by the way.

I would like for the elections to be a success but I also would like for a far left extremist group like the PKK to win (impossible since a Kurdish group could never win a nationwide election, but some sort of similar group). The insurgents are mostly either Baathists or Islamists, and would be a disaster if they took over.
60977  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Would you rather live in Venezuela or Singapore? on: January 24, 2005, 12:08:14 pm
I think I could have a lot of fun in either place, though I have never been to Venezuala.  I voted Singapore though, since I know from personal experience it is fun and also very safe.  Venezuala might be a better place to visit than in which to reside.
I haven't traveled much but I think the winner might be my ancestral home of Sweden.

In my opinion Norwegian women are better looking, a bit more Nordic.

The U.K. has the ugliest women in Europe.

largely true, but you have some huge exceptions like Lisa Snowdon:

I really doubt people are saying they don't approve of his job performance because of the $2 trillion it takes to keep Social Security from going bankrupt.

I also don't take one poll seriously. He's at 53% approval in TIME.

didn't we learn our lesson during the election season? TIME polls are worthless.
60979  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Sen. Chuck Hagel and Gov. Mitt Romney will win in 2008? on: January 23, 2005, 02:15:40 pm
Since every Republican is 100% certain Hillary will be the nominee for us (even though I don't think so), I ran this on President Forever as Hillary/Warner against Hagel/Romney.
Why would Hillary Clinton win in Missouri, Colorado, and Arizona but not New Mexico? 

New Mexico was a battleground state in 2000 and 2004.  Gore won in 2000.

The other three were written off by Gore and Kerry weeks before the election.

that's just how the game ended up. Depending on how you play it you can get some weird results.

The fact that Republicans here hate Hagel is one sign, and like I said before, anyone who says reinstatement of the draft should be considered is not winning, period.

what's your problem with preferential voting?
60982  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Sen. Chuck Hagel and Gov. Mitt Romney will win in 2008? on: January 22, 2005, 07:10:40 pm
Since every Republican is 100% certain Hillary will be the nominee for us (even though I don't think so), I ran this on President Forever as Hillary/Warner against Hagel/Romney.

The result:



PV much closer. Hillary won 50-49, with a margin of a little less than 2 million votes.
60983  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Nader vs. Bush (Kerry voters and supporters only) on: January 22, 2005, 07:08:06 pm
Because I'll likely be able to vote for a good alternative to him and whoever the Republicans nominate in 2008. If it's Bush vs. Nader this country is toast.
60984  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Nader vs. Bush (Kerry voters and supporters only) on: January 22, 2005, 06:55:25 pm
Having two Republicans run against each other is a pretty lousy choice.
60985  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Nader vs. Bush (Kerry voters and supporters only) on: January 22, 2005, 06:50:32 pm
PLEASE PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE. ARRRRGGGHHHHH!

Luckily, there is a "not vote" option, THANK GOD. In addition to not voting I would quickly purchase a one way plane ticket to Toronto.

I wouldn't consider Durham a suburb

Then why is that in your signature?
60988  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Which would you rather your 5-year-old child see? on: January 22, 2005, 05:54:58 pm
Aren't they a far left party? Peter said that's what party I would be in if I lived in Britain

I don't think you can really calculate turnout with same-day registration...

yeah but that's the official number. almost twice as many people voted as who were registered at the precinct the morning of election day.

I think I could have a lot of fun in either place, though I have never been to Venezuala.  I voted Singapore though, since I know from personal experience it is fun and also very safe.  Venezuala might be a better place to visit than in which to reside.

I'm wondering, which country do you think has the hottest women?

I haven't traveled much but I think the winner might be my ancestral home of Sweden.

France. You get much more vacation time too!
60992  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Would the rest of the world be happy or mad if I replaced Bush? on: January 22, 2005, 03:11:03 pm
One country that would not be happy: China

I support a ban of all Chinese goods until they free Tibet.
60993  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Would you rather live in Venezuela or Singapore? on: January 22, 2005, 03:09:39 pm
I think I like where I am now better than Caracas. I'd just take Chavez over Singapore's fascist government. At least Chavez is still allowing right wing media moguls to bash him on their TV stations. Singapore would never allow such a thing.
60994  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Would the rest of the world be happy or mad if I replaced Bush? on: January 22, 2005, 03:03:27 pm
yeah, but I think he'd take just about anyone over Bush.
60995  General Politics / Political Debate / Would you rather live in Venezuela or Singapore? on: January 22, 2005, 03:02:52 pm
Venezuela. Give me the socialist over Singapore's fascist government any day! Might I point out Venezuela has a higher Freedom House score.
60996  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Roe v. Wade on: January 22, 2005, 03:02:03 pm
Roe v. Wade was a horrible decision. Not quite as bad as Bush v. Gore but still horrible.

By the way pro-choicers.....here is somethin to think about:

Don't post that crap.  I don't post pictures of [...] Rick Santorum

LOL!
60997  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Would the rest of the world be happy or mad if I replaced Bush? on: January 22, 2005, 03:00:52 pm
hugo chavez and fidel castro would be happy.

would normal people (i.e those that dont go globe trotting in search of prostitution) be happy?  probably not.

what does Chirac count as?
60998  Election Archive / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: So how did this guy get Re-elected? on: January 22, 2005, 02:59:05 pm
Saying that a gay person is allowed to marry someone from the opposite sex is the wrose argument I've ver heard. It's like saying the Soviet Union was a democracy b/c everyone had the same right to vote for the Communists. Crawl back into your hole and fetch better arguments.

Same sex divorce is on the questions that must be ask about when discussing same sex marriage.  Marriage creates a contractual relationship and there is every reason to believe that these, lke different sex relationships, will end.

so make it exactly the same way heterosexual divorce is handled. problem solved.
60999  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2004 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Do you know of any precincts in the country with higher turnout than mine? on: January 22, 2005, 02:47:42 pm
I calculated the exact number now, we had 197.39% turnout. Go to love that same day registration Smiley

Both Iran-Contra and Watergate was overhyped by the liberal press.

And they under-hyped Clinton's Impeachment?
He lied under oath.  BAD.

and the laws that Iran-Contra and Watergate violated weren't bad? I think lying and breaking laws that involve national security or severe political corruption are much worse than lying about a blowjob.
