You make a good point homelycooking.

In the past there were instances of people saying, "So and so is safe" vote for me, and this actually cost Feds their second seat back in April 2013. This time, I assumed the quota would be 21 or 22 but it hit 23 and that was with much lower Fed Turnout then I was hoping for.

I don't think people don't understand this though homely. In the past the preference counts were usually rather close. This time there was a group of people who didn't much care for labor, loved Polnut and there was no one else they were extremely passionate about so blew Polnut through the ceiling (whereas I merely danced on the ceiling. Couldn't resist Wink). They know that some flexibility is necessary to get your prefered guys in, what they often aren't aware of is the latest count and that was always a problem on the right. I remember in December 2013 at the end not knowing who to vote for at that point because the counts hadn't been updated. And so aside from bgwah who knew exactly how someone needed to vote as each vote was cast and therefore was able to message people accordingly to get them out and win that second seat by a fraction of a percent, most people don't have the latest numbers in their head.

Yeah, homely, I was pretty good at working the STV system. Nobody else has bothered, which is a shame, since it can be very competitive.


There are other elections where the final round doesn't look as close because later voters strategically knocked out candidates stronger in later rounds.

10  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Muslims on refugee boat throw Christians overboard for being non-Muslims on: April 16, 2015, 08:05:20 pm
The religion of peace strikes again.

Unclear is why people who hate Christians that much were trying to illegally immigrate to a country full of them.

Clearly we need to embrace such immigrants in the name of tolerance.

He is a double agent who will infiltrate Atlas, become a moderator, replace Nym90 as admin, and then wreak havoc upon the Atlas Forum in a quest of vengeance.

You've been warned.

They really have a lot more women than we do. How embarrassing.

I may leave this place to permanently be there, actually.

this is reaching Tom Cruise levels of desperation
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Texas approves textbooks with Moses as Founding Father on: April 11, 2015, 12:45:42 pm
Texas textbooks will teach public school students that the Founding Fathers based the Constitution on the Bible

Ah, so that's how they justified slavery!
15  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Should we invade and occupy Bizarro Atlas? on: April 08, 2015, 06:56:52 pm
We should copy and paste Jeff's posts about loving on kids into their 75 page megathread Report - Pedophilia more common among "gays"

Atlas was like that a decade ago.

I am so excited!

18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What will be the "big" Social Issues in 2050? on: April 04, 2015, 02:55:02 pm
I have no clue. It is entirely possible that low birthrates among secular liberals will allow a revival of religious conservatism in the coming decades. I think a lot of you are prematurely declaring victory.

Afghanistan was turning out relatively okay until we got distracted and bogged down in Iraq.

How many people didn't believe god in those eras? Were scientists allowed not to believe in god?

Literally 15 seconds of research would have provided you an answer. In fact, this one is so easily explained that you should be banned for even asking. Tongue

One should always assume the worst when it comes to police behavior.

So open minded and fair! Good thing we have people like you to remind us what a true progressive really is!
25  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Prospective electoral vote allocation for the next decade on: March 14, 2015, 02:01:00 pm
Poor Montanans! They will probably have to wait another decade to be fairly represented. Sad

They still have as many Senators as California. I'm not too concerned...
