^ I couldn't agree more! They did that in our House races here in Connecticut, and it was like "Come on! Focus on issues that you can actually work on!"

 BTW, in a House candidate, I'm looking for someone to clean up after me, and make sure that dinner is ready by 6 pm.
5627  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: 2004: Bush vs. McCain vs. Alexander vs. Thompson? on: September 06, 2007, 01:16:37 pm
What is George W. Bush had real well known opponents in the 2004 Election season for the GOP nom?  Notably, John McCain, Lamar Alexander and Fred Thompson.

What? I see question marks, but I don't see a question. More of a confusing statement about nothing.

 Are you asking what if Bush had well known opponents in the primary? If so, I don't think anything would happen. Bush was still somewhat liked, and still had a real possibility of winning re-election. The GOP knew that if he were forced into a primary, that would be the end of their rule in the White House.

 Maybe that wouldn't have been such a bad idea.

I don't think you can legally do this.

Eh, I do a lot of things that aren't legal. Just figured I'd keep things moving since others were pre-occupied.

 TO THE BRIG WITH ME!

Hello, Northeast, can someone open this vote? It's been 3 days already.

I just opened it in the voting section.
5630  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Northeast Voting Booth: Popular Initiative Amendment on: September 06, 2007, 11:40:24 am
As nobody else has done so, I'll just start this off.


The Senate debate on the Amendment can be found here.

The Amendment is as follows:
Popular Initiative Amendment

Article I, Section 3, Clause 5 of the Atlasian Constitution shall be created to read as follows:

Any ordinary citizen of Atlasia may propose legislation for immediate consideration by the Senate. To do so, he must:

(a) create a new thread (entitled with the name of his proposed legislation) containing his proposal;

(b) receive the signitures of 15% of the registered citizens of Atlasia within 28 days of creating the thread.

When these requirements are met and verified by the Secretary of Forum Affairs, the legislation shall be placed before the Senate for its consideration, though only one piece of legislation proposed in this matter shall be considered by the Senate at any one time. The citizen who creates the thread for the legislation shall be thence considered the sponsor of the legislation.

Safe LaRocco.

Ahh, now that's something Larry hasn't heard in oh, 14 or so years.
5636  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: history, Tom Foley, etc. on: September 04, 2007, 12:08:39 pm
I don't see why not. Let's not forget that Daschle was the Democratic leader in the Senate until he failed to win reelection a few years ago.

Yes..and? Daschle was done in by Frist, Rove, and Bush. Pelosi isn't going anywhere unless she is defeated in a primary.

Reread the question. I don't think that Pelosi will be the Speaker for the next 93 years.

Reread my answer. I didn't say that Pelosi would be Speaker that long. I was commenting on Daschle, on how he was done in. He was the democratic leader from a strong Republican state, and those three helped do him in.

Further proof that AZ won´t be a swing state if Clinton is the DEM nominee ...

Further proof that it sucks to be John McCain, and Naso, one of his many (17) supporters.

Sigh..

 I believe that if Reagan would have ran for a third term, I would picture it something close to what could have happened in '80 if Carter had another point or so behind him.

 Reagan wins in a big part of the Northeast, the mid west, and west. Clinton does very well in the South, but not enough to provide a win.  Maybe something similar to this, Clinto might win a few more

Some People said the same thing about Virginia and Montana.

Yeah, Virginia and Montana are very much so different from Idaho, but you knew that.

5646  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Breaking News: John Warner to retire at end of term on: August 31, 2007, 01:40:48 pm
That's sad.  Senator Warner is a great man, and has done great things for the Commonwealth of Virginia.  I'm glad, for atleast a short time, I was able to call him my Senator.
