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.

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.

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.

I'm bumping my old campaign for this current one.

 Again, any additional questions that anybody, even those not in the district wish to ask, please feel free.

I hate not typing out an actual answer, but I agree with with Verily on the issue.
5635  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Who are you planning to support in the Northeast Special Election? on: August 30, 2007, 11:08:47 am
This will be incredibly.... incredibly hard.

Indeed.

For real
5636  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Northeast Senate Seat Special Election Forum—AUG 30-31, 2007 on: August 30, 2007, 10:27:55 am
I'll break down each item and respond.

  • Judicial Terms—Should Supreme Court terms be lifetime appointments, or should judges be up for reconfirmation (in any shape or form) after the period of one year?

 I believe that in Atlasia, our Supreme Court terms should be based on reconfirmation each year. I believe that is the best way to keep our courts moving into new directions. If a Justice does his or her job properly, there should be no reason for not being reconfirmed.

  • Popular Initiative—Should citizens be able to sponsor a law and bring it to the Senate floor provided they obtain signatures of at least 15% of registered Atlasian voters?

 In a way, yes, I believe that citizens should be able to sponser a bill, but I believe it can be done in a different manor. I believe that once the signatures are obtained by registered voters, that the citizen should bring it forward to his or her Senator, and have it directly brought to the floor for voting. I think by having their Senator bring it foward, it will keep our Senate clean, and make it easier to see where the propsed laws are coming from.

  • Proportional Representation—Should we continue to elect Class B Senators from five evenly-populated districts, or should all five Class B Senators be elected nationwide via "proportional representation by single transferrable vote"?

 I believe that we should continue electing Class B Senators the way we do it now. Local members for local districts, voting for their needs.

I believe he does.
5638  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Northeast Senate Seat Special Election Forum—AUG 30-31, 2007 on: August 30, 2007, 09:59:32 am
First, I would like to echo the comments of my friends, Rockefeller Republican, and Verily. Thank you, Senator-elect Moderate for moderating this forum for the people of the Northeast.  I would also like to say it's an honor to run with both of the other candidates, both of which who are excellent people, and I believe to have excellent qualifications for this race.  I will not refer to them as my "opponents", because we are all working for the same goal, and that is to give the Northeast the best representation it can have.

   If given the chance, and elected to the Atlasia Senate, I promise that I will fight for the people of the Northeast, and work hard for what is in their best intrerest. Former Senator Keystone Phil is a great person, but I believe that he was looking out for the interests of his party, and I feel that the Democrats, Liberals, Independents, and Moderate Republicans have been left out. We need to bring fair, and equal representation to a fair, and equal district. I will not also leave out our Conservatives in this district. I understand how hard it is to be a Republican in moderatly liberal district, and I promise to represent your needs as well.

 Also, as in my prior campaign for Senate, I promise to keep an open mind to every peice of legislation, and will listen to advice from all constiuents.  I will also promise that I will only serve two terms, if elected and later re-elected.

 I again thank you, and await the series of questions.

You have  Deleware and Washington as Safe, and Montana and West Virginia as likely? Have you actually.. you know.. researched some of these races, or are you just pulling our leg?

I'd imagine he is the bottom, and the sucker. I have a lot of friends who are gay, and I've talked to them about that exact same thing. They said that most clostetd people are more intersted in giving oral than receiving. I guess when recieving from the misses, they could close their eyes and imagine that it was a du...

wait..am I actually responding to what of opebos posts? A shiver just went down my spine.

Could you imagine how big the ballot would be just being on the popular vote?
5642  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: New Senate Rankings on: August 29, 2007, 12:14:17 pm
I doubt S. Collins' seat is going to be a tossup, Tom Allen is a good fundraiser but her approvals are skyrocketing. According to approvals CO<NH<MN<OR<VA are the ones more competetive. Susan Collins will win 55% of the vote.

Tom Allen is also really popular. That neutralizes the effect.

Tom Allen is no where near as popular as Susan Collins, and Collins beats him soundly within Allen's own Congressional district.  I think the guy is going to have a lot of trouble moving the needle.

Yeah, I agree. I think Allen has made a mistake running after Collins, when he could stay in his safe house seat.

 Can things change in the next year? Sure they can, but at this point, Collins wins with atleast 55%

I wouldn't do anything.  I know it's mean, but who knows if things would be better or worse in the world today.
5644  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Resignation on: August 29, 2007, 10:42:08 am
I would be interested in this seat.

 If given the opprutinity to serve, I would not run for re-election, because I could not see myself running against Rock.

Wow, what happened here!?

 I'm surprised that there isn't a larger lead for Nixon.


p.s. w00t for 1000 posts. : P
5648  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Mr. Moderate District 2 Senate Office on: August 28, 2007, 11:04:03 am
I would like to thank Senator- Elect Moderate for this appointment to Co-Chief of Staff. I believe that his choice of a Northerner, and Southerner from different, yet similar political spectrums was an excellent idea.

 Also, your dry cleaning was "borrowed" by GPorter, he wants a suit to look more Presidential. Go figure.

5649  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Arizona on: August 28, 2007, 08:53:49 am
Arizona is a state that is becoming much less reliably Republican, along with a few others in the west. The Democrats have a realistic shot at it in '08, along with New Mexico (which of course they have won recently), Colorado, Nevada, and perhaps Montana.

Yeah, take Montana out and I'll agree with it. Montana is not going to trend in Presidential elections anytime soon.  The only reason Montana went Democrat in 1992 was because Bush was never that popular in the state, and Perot dropped the percentages.
