And what function does HW serve on this ticket outside "token DA member?" I hardly see the similarities between these two. (HW doesn't really care about social issues and PiT is no economic centrist.)

Clearly human trash, but I oppose the death penalty, so this was the right decision.

What he said.

Obama operates on what is popular and easy, not what is hard and necessary.

Wow, I totally agree with you.

I'm sure we disagree on what is necessary, though. Tongue

But Olbermann, Olbermann is an insane left-wing blowhard who belongs in a mental institution.

As opposed to O'Reilly who sexually harasses women (that tape would make a nice campaign ad) and, in contrast to Olbermann, enjoys making s**t up.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to read the Paris Business Review. (And I'm doing it live.)

Obama operates on what is popular and easy, not what is hard and necessary.

In regards to this, though, I'm pretty worried considering that I live in Ohio.

I agree with Ernest, we should have ended segregation and allowed mixed marries marriages legislatively. I'm sure we'd have most of the US covered by now, right?
13810  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of the Issue, part 57 on: May 23, 2009, 06:12:45 pm
Hell yes!

Even if you support the death penalty, are you really THAT excited about killing people?

He's a good Christian.

Um... if there was a maximum security prison in my neighborhood...

Aye on the Supreme Court.

Could people explain why they're voting nay on the President section?

Because it makes the Presidency an almost useless position in a parliamentary system if they have no unique-stand-alone powers that can't be overridden by parliament.

Yeah, this is really mature. Change the system if there's someone you don't like in the post, right?

Yup! Smiley

Whatever works I guess. I like the names of your states, at least Tongue

No public plan = fail.

In fact, that present system is not good. If 60 percent of people vote against the Ilikeverin, he still keeps the office.

That's a problem for democracy in Midwest.

Obviously the system was silly to begin with.
13816  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: ANNOUNCEMENT on: May 23, 2009, 04:25:17 pm
      I would like to say first that the person who is my running mate is someone who is quite distinguished in Atlasian politics & is someone who I am proud to be able to work with, though we have certain ideological differences. Without further ado, my running mate is none other than the esteemed Senator of the Mideast, HappyWarrior!

Who could have ever seen this coming? Who, I ask!

Independent
Colorado

I may register to specific party at another time once I become more familiar with Altasian politics.


You should totally join the Democratic Alliance!

     The RPP might be a better fit. In four out of five regions, the average RPPer's PM score is in the libertarian quadrant. Grin

Yes, I was leaning towards the RPP from the beginning (after all, you recruited me, sort of...), however, I just want to make sure they don't have a position or leader that really turns me off to the party. I thought the RPP was conservative, but I guess I was wrong.

Just join the Democratic Alliance! We're a centrist pragmatist party.

[note, I don't feel like having 300 airheads attacking the DA yet again with whatever names they call us]

I can, if you like. Wink

Presidency: Nay
Supreme Court: Aye
13820  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: once again, president obama disappoints me on: May 20, 2009, 01:10:28 am
Anything for votes. Obama is trying to get the NRA endorsement in 2012.

That would certainly be an amusing predicament for rednecks.
13821  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Loaded guns allowed in national parks under bill on: May 19, 2009, 10:35:08 pm
Just a little bit of change. Just a little.
13822  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Gay Marriage/Civil Unions in 10 years on: May 19, 2009, 06:24:46 pm
That's a kind of confusingly phrased question...

Welcome to the world of ballot initiatives Tongue

For Wyden, the key to passing lasting healthcare reform is finding a legislative solution that can win at least 70 votes in the Senate ó and heís not shy about letting Democrats know that means dropping thoughts of a government-run public plan for the entire nation.

Then he's retarded. There's no such thing as healthcare reform without a public option.

Also, the idea that we can get 70 or 80 votes for this in the Senate is similarly retarded. Only like 66 Senators voted for SCHIP, fuÁking SCHIP, and we're supposed to find an additional 15 Republicans to support universal healthcare? Good luck with that.

We didn't vote for "change," Lief. We voted for "The same thing but not so bad."

If its socialized medicine, yes.

Please don't ever call the fire department again.

Thanks.
