Hillary is a minority?

Hillary doesn't have a penis?

I'm going to copy and paste what I said earlier to these questions, to stay consistent with my message.




I'm not a D2 member, but I have three questions:

(1) This question is for Mr. Moderate and AndrewCT:  Unlike Ernest and DWTL, neither of you have been elected to public office in Atlasia before.*  How would you make up for this lack of inexperience? Do you believe it would be beneficial?


Well, it is true, I am not, nor have ever been an elected official of Atlasia. But, now is the time for fresh blood, and new faces to elected office here. Sometimes, inexperience is what you need in order to bring big changes to politics. A new face has no friends, has no enemies. They do what is best for the people, and have not been corrupted by the system. That is why I plan on serving a maximum of two terms, if elected and re-elected. Than, to bring a new face in. Also, I have friends in Atlasia who have served in elected positions, who will hopefully guide me along this road.

(2) This question is for Ernest, Mr. Moderate and AndrewCT: The current Senate is perhaps one of the most predicable in history.  It is usually Ebowed, Al, Rob, Lewis and Earl voting one way and DownWithTheLeft, PBrunsel, Brandon H, Keystone Phil and Sam Spade voting the other with whoever having the most on vacation losing control of the legislature, at least for that period of time.  What side would you likely vote on if elected or would you be a swing voter? If you think you would be a swing Senator, defend your answer with proof to show you aren't lying.

  To be honest, I would pick the obvious side. I would pick the side of my district. As you can see in my posting past, I have disagreed with posters like BRTD, as well as our current Senator, DownWithTheLeft. I am a very independent minded person, and I believe it's shown. In real life, I ran for office on the terms that I would side with the city, and not the party. I narrowly lost by 300 out of over 7000 votes. I was than appointed Commissioner, where you can not allow partys to guide you, but only your own views, and what is best for the people. Again, I believe my posting record reflects an independent mind, that is best for our District, and the nation.

Tough call, but I'd vote for Giuliani.


 Remember, these are two different senarios I am putting down.

 This is if Gore runs on his current agenda, and campaigns on the enviorment, and bashing bush. Giuliani wins with a  51-49 margin, and barely takes the EV.



This is he goes back to his older roots, pulls out of the left field just a tough, and focus's on the war, enviorment, economy, and tries to stay positive. Gore wins the popular vote by a 53-47 margin, but pulls of a decent electoral vote. Giuliani comes close in Connecticut and New Jersey.



 
5679  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: is Gore the only person that can stop Hillary? on: August 07, 2007, 10:21:45 am
I hope he can. I actually voted for Gore over Bush in 2000, and if he ran the same theme campaign now, I'd possibly consider it again (That's if it isn't Guiliani or Thompson)
5680  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: J.C. Watts/Michael Steele v. Barack Obama/Al Sharpton on: August 07, 2007, 09:30:15 am
I really like J.C. Watts. I met him back in 2004, and he was a really nice guy. I'd gladly vote for him, but I know that Obama would defeat him handidly. I still think that Watts would pull off the usual republican states, minus Ohio, (and swing states Iowa and New Mexico)

Do you support the President's and Vice President's reform proposals as presented to the Senate?
Would you vote for those reforms amendments if you were in the Senate?

Of course, as with any administration, there will always be proposals from the Presidents administration that I would disagree with, but overall I support many of their proposals that were presented to the Senate.

 Some of the reforms that were introduced would be tough decisions, and there would be some that I may have abstained from. Others have great potential but need changes, and rewrites before I could consider voting in support of these measures. I appologize for the quick and short answer, but I was just handed a last minute report at work, and I don't want to hold up the debate.

What will be your relationship with the left and such groups as the Progressive Caucus and the ACLC if elected?


 I believe that I would work well with the other groups if elected. My posts have already shown that I on many occasions have an independent mind, and I am ready and willing to work with whoever it takes to ensure that we get what we need done, that is right for the people.
 
 I will not agree with the Republicans and Conservatives on every issue, and I'm not going to agree with the Democrats, and Liberals on every issue. I will stand up for what is right, and if that means working with the members of the opposite caucus, than so be it. I will put the intersts of the Second District ahead of the intersts of a party.

 As I have stated earlier, I consider myself to be fiscally conservative, and socially moderate (Like one of my opponents, Mr. Moderate), and I agree with him when it comes down to it, I too will stand up and support a good bill when it comes around.
5684  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Paul vs Kucinich on: August 06, 2007, 12:54:48 pm
I've gotta be honest, both are terrible candidates, and I would really want to vote for Paul, but man, Kucinich is a great public speaker in my mind, he really is.
5685  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: District 2 Senatorial Debate-Live from Philladelphia, PA on: August 06, 2007, 08:28:32 am
First, I would like to thank South Park Conservative for moderating this debate, as well as thank the National Weekly Atlasian for sponsering this debate.


If elected, how will you further the interests of the district in an effective manner?

 That is a terrific question.  If elected to the Senate, my office will remain open at all times for any questions, or suggestions that members of our district might have. I believe that the key to a sucsesfull term in office, as well as be highly approved by your fellow members, is to always listen to their needs, and concerns. I've said it again, I will not be a puppet for any party. I greatly love and respect the party that I belong to, but if the members of this district are opposed to current legislation that is up for voting, and they voice their concerns to me, I will follow the needs of District 2.

 I am a strong beliver of having the Government belong to the hands of the people, and I promise to do my best to keep that power with the members of this district. It is important to have fresh ideas, and new blood in our Government, and thats why I promise to serve a maximum of 2 terms if elected and re-elected.

 I do not plan on moving to any other district, at any other time to seek an easier election. I live in Connecticut, and will continue to live in Connecticut, regardless of any possible district changes in the future.

 I also plan to keep an open, honest, and friendly relationship with all members of Atlasia, including those of other districts.

   Thank you, and I hope this answers your question.

Yeah, my bad. I like to answer things asap. It's something I've learned over the years. Sitting on questions is just a better way to lie about them.
5688  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: National Weekly Atlasian District 2 Senatorial Debate Questions Thread on: August 05, 2007, 11:59:57 am
I'm going to take this time to answer the following questions that have recently been asked.


Well, Im not from the district, but I am desperate to know:


What is your favorite kind of cheese?

That is a good, and very tough question. One of my favorite questions though.  I'm a fan of Vermont, extra sharp cheddar, and a good Mozzarella cheese.  But I am a man of many cheeses, I will eat any and all.


I'm not a D2 member, but I have three questions:

(1) This question is for Mr. Moderate and AndrewCT:  Unlike Ernest and DWTL, neither of you have been elected to public office in Atlasia before.*  How would you make up for this lack of inexperience? Do you believe it would be beneficial?

They do what is best for the people, and have not been corrupted by the system. That is why I plan on serving a maximum of two terms, if elected and re-elected. Than, to bring a new face in. Also, I have friends in Atlasia who have served in elected positions, who will hopefully guide me along this road.

1]  This question for all candidates. What is your opinion on the seperation of church and state? Will you support the seperation of church and state and defend secularism?

That is a very difficult choice, but when it comes to my personal opinion, I believe that our seperation of Church and State needs to be strong. In order for them to ever come together, you would need to include all, which would than not only be a strain on the system, but it would become a strain on our tax dollars.

2] Why are you running for this office? What are some of the things that you wish to accomplish? (all candidates)

 One of the reasons I am running for office is to bring a fair representation to the people of our district, as well as to all the people of Atlasia.  My main goal is to work on bringing a fair, and equal Senate together, and listen to every suggestion that our members bring me, and decide what is best for all of us, rather than a party.

5689  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Thompson/Pawlenty vs. Clinton/Biden: Who would win? on: August 05, 2007, 11:18:13 am
Eh, I would probably vote Thompson, unless he runs a miserable campaign, but I'd expect Clinton to win.

Probably the same year that New York votes Republican.

5692  Election Archive / 2008 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: Rasmussen: Thompson, Giuliani both "ahead" of Clinton by 1 on: August 03, 2007, 08:46:18 am
I agree the election is in the Democratic favor, but those who think it will be a landslide or a 330 EV+ win for the Democrats are living a pipe dream. I'd be willing to bet whether we get another Republican or a Democratic President...that President is elected with 270-290 Electoral Votes.

 I highly doubt that.

Bush wouldn't do as well in the south because the all South Clinton ticket would have played well, especially since Bush was more moderate than Conservative.

You go for yours! If you started it in 1956, that would certainly be a good timeline.
5697  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: New interactive timeline idea. on: August 02, 2007, 02:39:02 pm
lol!!! I've totally been working on the same timeline idea for like, two weeks now. I've been writing mine that started in the 1992 elections.
5698  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / AndrewCT for Senate (Northeast) - Responsive Leadership on: August 02, 2007, 01:25:14 pm
I would like to welcome all to my Campaign headquaters. I will outline my agenda for my candiacy for this office.


I'm sorry for not updating this yet, I've been crazy here at work! I'll outline a few basic ideals of myself, and what kind of candidate I am.

I'm a fiscally conservative, socially moderate Republican from the great state of Connecticut.  As a candidate, and if elected, a representative for the District, I will listen, I will consciously vote what is best for the members of District 2, and not just any party.  I hold many core values with the Republican party, and if nominated, I will represent it to the best of my ability in the General Election.

 Also, I'm a strong supporter of term limits. If elected, I vow to serve only 2 terms as Senator. I believe that it's important to not only hold elected officials responsible for their actions, but to also keep fresh blood flowing in politics.

   I would like to make it clear that I am not running against Sen. DWTL just for the fun of it. I am running because I believe that this district can be represented better, and I want to give the people a choice in their candidates.

     

   Thank you, and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

 - AndrewCT
