How, exactly, is Obama prone to make gaffes? The only thing going wrong for Obama that I see are the overt mis-quotes coming from Romney's spin machine.
11903  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: what did you eat today? on: August 14, 2007, 10:14:07 pm
two poptarts, a Birthday Cake flavored Carvelanche, a bratwurst and some saltines.

The only reason Obama is 'going down' is because the Romney campaign has recently decided, for whatever reason, to focus some significant resources and money to attack Obama.

In a word, no. Even a quick glance at my political matrix score is enough to tell I am no social conservative!

The preservation of individual liberties will be one of my highest priorities as a senator, and my voting record will reflect that. I believe that a small government approach is best when dealing with social matters.

I also do not hold conservative positions on matters such as HIV and global warming. Though we should first encourage action through tax breaks and such, at some point it does become neccessary for government to invervene in these crises.

On the issue of school vouchers, however, I am a bit mixed. Preferably, no government funds would go to fund private religious institutions. However, a voucher going to a religious school is not the government funding a religious school; it's the government paying for an alternative school choice with the parents making the decision of what school it goes to.

If we're going to have a voucher system, it doesn't really make sense to limit what kind of schools the voucher goes towards.

Taxes are an evil, but are really a neccessary evil in modern society. If elected, I pledge today that I will not support any increase in taxes, nor will I support any frivolous expansion of government spending.

This is a simple answer to a complex and open-ended question, but I believe I have successfully outlined my point of view. Smiley

11914  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should the US have a National Lottery? on: August 12, 2007, 01:17:14 pm
I've never heard of anyone going into bankruptcy or ruin because of a lottery. Even poors aren't going to go starving just because they buy a $1 lottery ticket every now and then.

That's definately not the case. If I may use an example from my own observation, often people will not buy just a single lottery ticket every now and then. A few weeks ago, while waiting in line at a convenience store in town, I watched a woman buy an entire roll of scratch-off tickets, totalling something like two hundred dollars. From the conversation between her and the cashier, it was evident this was a common ritual for her and that she was spending a large chunk of her income.

I don't know how common that sort of thing is, but my understanding is that sort of behavior isn't all too rare.

Negative. It's a bit too big.

Though the Romney picture is kind of funny, as it looks like he's supposed to be on a promotional picture of the movie "Dude, Where's My Car?" or something like that.
11916  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: What year do you expect Alaska to vote for a Democratic Presidential candidate? on: August 12, 2007, 01:02:20 pm
Once a Democrat Presidential candidate supports oil drilling in ANWR, then yes, it could happen.

That's what I say.... or when the chips come off oil and onto...say solar. Who wouldn't want to build a giant panel where there is 6 months of sunlight and infinite space?

The Democrats because it would make it look ugly and kill animals (reasons they use so wind farms can't be built in certain areas even though they support it).

There are no Kennedys in Alaska though! Tongue

Someone better take a screenshot of that before it's down.  That should constitute criminal activity in Atlasia and I will point it out to King.

It stays in the history.
