1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Michael Bloomberg to Endorse Hillary Clinton in Speech This Week on: July 24, 2016, 02:26:14 pm
I wish Mike had run.
2  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How would Bloomberg be doing? on: July 20, 2016, 02:39:40 pm
If Gary Johnson can poll at 13%, Bloomberg would be over 20% if not higher. He said he'd spend $1 billion of his own money and Johnson isn't spending anything.

I'm still sad he declined to run. I would've backed him in a heartbeat.
3  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: George W Bush: I think I might be the last Republican president on: July 19, 2016, 07:41:34 pm
Dubya is right. So long as the Democrats are getting 90% of the black vote and 70%+ of the latino vote, it's almost impossible for the GOP to win a national election

Why the GOP backed away from the 2006 immigration reform and took a hard line against it is bewildering to me. They had a chance to capture the Latino vote and be the party for the latinos.

I love Dubya.

2006 was great. I also loved 2010-2011 and 2014 honestly. 2016 has actually been the worst year of my life to date. Financially it has been solid but otherwise...
7  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: A new party. (VOTING ON PARTY NAME) on: July 17, 2016, 01:48:11 pm
I really wish you all wouldn't use The People's Party. The Party had it's run, but there's no need to drag it through the mud on a venture that's destined to fail harder than me and my ex girlfriend when we inevitably get back together.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Does Kaine lockdown VA for Clinton? on: July 17, 2016, 01:34:07 pm
I doubt it will swing many voters. VA is already in the lean Dem column, and I don't see much of a scenario where Trump wins the state so long as he struggles in northern VA.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Question for Never Trump Republicans.......... on: July 17, 2016, 01:33:16 pm
The next president is likely to be a 1 term president regardless, because we are almost certain to enter a recession in the next year or so.

I think Hillary would do less to upend the status quo, and I think she's be better with foreign policy than Obama, in the sense that I see Obama has a failure when it comes to his middle east policies.

With Trump, you just have no idea what you are getting, and Pence is much too right winged for my tastes, all things considered.

The Supreme Court isn't a major issue for me. As we have seen in the past, conservative presidents don't always pick conservative justices.

The new party will be DOA as are most centrist parties not built around the personality cult of The People
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: So...who's gonna get the Trump VP nod? on: July 03, 2016, 11:55:57 am
I just can't see it being Gingrich, but he does fit the qualifications that Trump seems to be looking for in his VP candidate.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Was Donald Trump's tweet anti-Semitic? on: July 02, 2016, 01:03:49 pm
This is a stretch
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Atlas Predicts: The RNC Speakers on: July 02, 2016, 01:02:54 pm
Why would little Marco speak? Did he and the Donald make up?
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Final poll: will Hillary be indicted? on: July 01, 2016, 03:45:11 pm
It's becoming harder and hard to say no. I've tried to give her the benefit of the doubt for a while too
15  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: An Apology on: June 30, 2016, 08:21:34 pm
It's always difficult to overcome a structural disadvantage. The right wing has a massive lead in voters over the left and will likely hold the White House as long as that's the case. I'm just thankful we were able to ram the new constitution through before Adam and I left office.

Oh come on Duke. Do you really think Leinad would not have pushed the Constitution through had it yet to be done? He worked as hard as anyone at that convention and was 100% behind the final product, as was the entire Federalist Party from Goldwater to Pingvin99. Not single Federalist voted against the final product, but on the other hand I will say that while not every Laborite was a nay voter, every nay voter was a Laborite. Tongue

I'll never forget almost being primaried at the hands of Naso because I supported these reforms. The only way I survived was to make a pact that I would no longer push for consolidation as I had previously.

the Federalists did come to their senses, but only after the game had deteriorated to the point where opposing such reforms was political suicide. It's really unfair to give the Federalists credit for getting this through considering their historical opposition to it in favor of saving their beloved mideast region.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: With Trump, the GOP Is Heading Toward Oblivion on: June 30, 2016, 03:38:06 pm
There will always be opposition to the democrats. I for one do not wish to see a one party state for national elections, and we're already trending that way.

I have to believe that the GOP will right the ship at some point. Both parties have dominated for so long that structurally I still can't see a third party spring up.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Romney: My family still wants me to run for president on: June 30, 2016, 03:35:02 pm
If Mitt wanted to run, he had plenty of opportunity to do so a year ago. At this point he'd only play spoiler and get Hillary elected, which is fine if that's his goal.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Donald Trump makes less than $500k a year!? on: June 30, 2016, 01:38:20 pm
Nothing to see here really.

It'll be interesting to see how things go with the right in complete control now.

I know it's a minority position here in Atlasia, but I support the death penalty.

Good man! There must be some of us still around!
