He went from a libertarian-leaning independent to a populist-leaning Democrat back to a libertarian-leaning independent to a liberal Democrat to a libertarian-conservative Republican to a Green. So he has more than one conversion.

And really, the only thing he kept consistent was a support for Kinky. He was like Josh, but with an amount of rhetorical ability.

Some post that I'd probably completely agree with.

An amiable post regarding a forumner that is completely irrelevant to politics.

This sort of thing doesn't suprise me; CNN is easily the worst major news network.

After seeing the video, I really get the feeling Romney did it on purpose.

House:

Economic: 40.2% Conservative, 59.8% Liberal. Similar Congressmen: Tim Holden (D-PA), Bart Gordon (D-TN), Silvestre Reyes (D-TX)

Social: 8.8% Conservative, 91.2% Liberal. Similar Congressmen: Howard Berman (D-CA), Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-MI)

Foreign: 21.1% Conservative, 78.9% Liberal. Similar Congressmen: Jerry Costello (D-IL), Tom Allen (D-ME), Ron Paul (R-TX)

Overall: 24.3% Conservative, 75.7% Liberal. Most similar Congressman: Mike Thompson (D-CA)

Looking at the three sections individually, however, it seems to me that the most similar Congressman to myself is Neil Abercrombie (D-HI)

It was, contemporarily, a compromise between populist and elitist elements. In modern terms, however, it is largely elitist.

You think it'd be a good idea to get a sub forum for this?

Cars; I don't care about them at all.

Also, I find probably 95% of the stuff that's on tv to be utter crap.

It's people like him that are the reason we can't get rid of the Electoral College.

what does that even mean?
11869  Forum Community / Mock Parliment / Re: Idea: Mock Parliament on: October 17, 2007, 08:22:00 pm
While we're on questions, any ideas on government structure (eg legislature [monocameral or bicameral?], executive, local, etc?)

I think a unicameral, centralized government would probably work best for this idea as it stands now but a federal system is probably needed. If this really was a dictatorship for some time then the two options are either that it has elected to stay outside the Commonwealth, and elect some sort of executive, or has voted to rejoin the Commonwealth and now acknowledges Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as Queen of Antillia.

Personally, I'd prefer the latter.

Wow, thanks Colin.

This should go without saying, but I approve all of that bio you posted.

The fact that anyone actually enjoyed the Saw movies disturbs me.

Worrying about children accessing something, though?  No, not really.
