Curious as to current support. Only chose those likely to run or running now, omitting Warren, Biden, and a few possible dark horses.

Agree. He's still a very likely nominee, IMO.

But you know that the Obama admin is deporting people in droves ?

Deportations have never been higher than under Obama ...

I never said it wasn't. Just posting a Rasmussen poll.

OUCH. Even more harsh than my opinions.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Kansas passes law banning food stamp receipients from pools, movie theaters on: April 09, 2015, 02:52:21 am
Wow...forgot about this thread, didn't realize I hit such a nerve.

My point is simple. We need welfare. We need entitlements. But it has to be reformed so people can not abuse the system.

A mom buying food using Government assistance until she gets on her feet is okay. A mom abusing the system isn't. It's quite simple.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Kansas passes law banning food stamp receipients from pools, movie theaters on: April 07, 2015, 01:02:30 pm
I can't believe Republicans are okay with the bank account freezing aspect. The government taking control of your money and demanding how it be spent is hardly a libertarian concept.

It's almost as if poor people just completely don't matter to them.

THEY DO MATTER. But this in what I think is the real world. We see a woman pop out kids like a Pez dispenser KNOWING the more children she has, the more government money she gets. We see women shopping like they're Paris Hilton when they are on "assistance". It's like, "Oh yeah, you get our tax dollars instead of working, but you use it for shopping!"

Doesn't THAT matter to you?

16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Kansas passes law banning food stamp receipients from pools, movie theaters on: April 07, 2015, 01:00:54 pm
Wouldn't a law such as this violate some of the provisions of the 1964 Civil Rights Act?

Doubtful. You can't take a law passed by a few idealistic bleeding hearts 50 years ago the basis for taking apart what the country always has been.
17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Kansas passes law banning food stamp receipients from pools, movie theaters on: April 07, 2015, 12:35:21 pm
Makes sense. Basically, it's saying, "Okay, we'll give you food stamps paid for by the American taxpayer. But if we find out you're using assistance for shopping at Victoria's secret, or going to the movies, then we take it away."

Similar to mandatory drug testing for welfare.

Unless I'm missing something, if so please elaborate.

Completely irrelevant stuff you're bringing up.

I am telling you the truth. The Republican Party will endorse gay marriage, profanity on the radio*, and drug decriminalization in your lifetime. You better learn to roll with the punches.

*Marco Rubio is already quoting Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg on the Senate floor.


FYI That stuff doesn't bother me. John McCain was endorsed by Daddy Yankee for God's sake.

You keep bringing up race. Not a single time in this thread, did I bring up anything regarding race, white America, black people. Why inject race?

But you might have told me the same thing in 1965 or 1975. Who would have known the conservative revolution that would come in the following decades?

People were more liberal on drugs, religion, and gay rights in 1975 than in 1985? The answer is no. There was an economic move the right in the eighties but the trend leftward on social issues continued steadily.

I genuinely believe liberals are more bark than bite. I run into an average person on the street, and they probably agree that drugs are bad, we should build a fence, the IRS sucks, yada yada.

Also, other than Barack Obama, the country is more controlled by Republicans now than anytime certainly in two or three generations.

Maybe I shouldn't be that worried.

This is a perplexing subject for me. I turn 27 this year, so I don't even really fit into the "18-25" demographic anymore, but the very reason I identify with the Republican Party is because of how extreme the Democratic Party has gotten.

Life is only gonna get harder for you, son.

What the hell does that mean?

1. RIP white america
2. you know those so-called "traditions" you love from the 80s? anyone who likes 'em more than as a passing affectation will be dead relatively soon.
3. complaining about gay marriage is so 2008. soon, being trans will be socially acceptable as well and being gay will be nothing of note.

In short: RIP Reaganfan. It's over. In twenty years, the youth will be a racial kaleidoscope with many sexual orientations. Your side might win an election or a policy battle but your idyllic America is dead, has been dead and will remain in the grave.

Let's say when I was becoming a teenager, around the time of Bush vs. Gore in 2000, I heard extremely profane lyrics on the radio. I would think, "This stuff is vulgar, maybe kids shouldn't have to hear this crap." Now...George Bush the Republican would agree with me. But so would Al and Tipper Gore, the Democrat. See? Even though one was Republican and one was Democrat, certain common sense things (The Defense of Marriage Act, signed by Democrat Clinton) would keep everyone in agreement.

In 2004, I thought Gay Marriage was pushing boundaries too far. President Bush, the Republican, had an official position against it. But so did the Democratic nominee, John Kerry.

When I was a kid, it didn't matter who was in the White House, D.A.R.E. programs and the importance of staying off drugs was applauded. It didn't matter if you were Ronald Reagan or Bill Clinton or George Bush or Al Gore. Now? We have a party that wishes to make drugs legal and a President who openly has joked about drug legalization. How disgusting is that? THAT'S normal? That's not the Democratic Party I knew as a kid.

Do you get what I'm saying? Yes...being a Republican does make you more close-minded, maybe the harsh reality makes you come across cold-hearted. But I'd much rather be a more traditional conservative then take this drastic far left leap into unknown territory.

It didn't matter what party was in the White House when I was growing up, because Clinton, Reagan, or either Bush, you knew it was "One Nation Under God", you knew it was "Just say no to drugs". You knew it was "One man and one woman."

Today's Democratic Party doesn't feel any of that. That terrifies me. THAT is too extreme. I'd rather be with the party of the mainstream than with a radical party which currently is what the Democrats are. To me, the Republican Party is pretty much the same that it's been all my life.




24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: WaPo: Americans support Iran negotiations, dislike Netanyahu on: April 03, 2015, 12:02:19 am
I wonder if much of the large number of "undecided" people in these polls are actually critical of Israel but don't want to be misinterpreted as anti-Semitic.

Or they know nothing about Israel and have no clue what's going on. I guarantee there are a ton of American voters who don't even know who Netanyahu is.
