2  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should states/regions etc. have a right to secede from their nation-states? on: February 08, 2016, 11:31:26 pm
There's no universal fundamental principle against it, but the conditions under which it is considered just and appropriate ar a bit hard to figure out.   If the people of a region or state believe their interests fundamentally conflict with the national government, there should be some way to secede if it can't be come to terms with.  Should probably require a more deliberative process than a simple majority vote, given the potential disruption.

I think they did this just based on adding up whatever hawkish statements they randomly came across rather than looking at specific positions.

Aside from Graham being at the top and O'Malley and Paul being at the bottom, that makes no sense.

Something like this?



Yes, where was this?  Or did you make it?

The only thing that's missing is the shades for 0-10% and 10-20%.

I made it from the County Map Generator and playing around with the EC Calculator. I don't know where to find the 0-10 and 10-20 shades for all the colors, but the basics can be seen on this map (far left two columns).

Cool. Thanks.

Is there a map key that includes all the colors that are used for primary candidates?   The standard one only has red, blue, green and yellow.
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Trump win every county in NH? on: February 08, 2016, 01:46:28 pm
Coos and Grafton will be his strongest but Rockingham and Hillsborough probably he has the highest chance of losing

Why Grafton?

11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Gloriana Steinem : Young women are for Bernie as that's where the boys are on: February 08, 2016, 12:50:35 pm
I merely said that voting for somebody only because of their gender is bad, no matter what their gender is.

The thing is that no one actually does that, but of course, this debate only ever comes up when Hillary Clinton is running. It doesn't come up when other Democratic women or even Republican women run for office. Only when Hillary does. Ain't that just keen?

When a major pitch of the campaign is that it's time we elect a woman, it's a legitimate thing to talk about.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why does Bernie refer to Hillary as "The secretary"? on: February 08, 2016, 12:42:44 pm
Not sure how serious this is. It's because she was Secretary of State.

Then why doesn't he called her "Secretary of State" Clinton? That's like calling David Cameron "Prime Cameron".

You can't just omit words willy-nilly.

No, it'd be like calling him "Minister Cameron."   
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who won the ABC debate? on: February 07, 2016, 02:20:45 pm
Christie and then Kasich.  Cruz came across as not a complete psychopath, so that should help him out a bit too.

Forbes won by 60% when Obama narrowly carried the district in 2008.  This will be a very difficult  for him to win this new district, but whether it is Safe D depends on whom they put up against him.

Some maps I made that I thought would be interesting to look at in terms of the upcoming primary:

 
 
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Ex-NAACP leader Ben Jealous to endorse Sanders on: February 04, 2016, 05:59:35 pm
How many black voters could tell you who Ben Jealous is without googling it? Wake me up when Sanders gets a Beyonce endorsement.

Did you realize many black voters care about actual political issues, and might put more stock in the thoughts of a leader of the NAACP than some pop singer?
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinions of Karl Marx, Charls Darwin, and Sigmund Freud on: February 04, 2016, 12:38:46 pm
I'd say they created new faiths in place of those they supplanted.

Marx - from faith in spirit and classical economics, to faith in historical materialism and class struggle
Darwin - from faith in design and special creation, to faith in the productivity of evolution and natural processes
Freud - from faith in human rationality, to faith in the power of the unconscious and underlying sexual psychology

They're cartoonish evil.  "God hates the world and all it's children la la la"

I lost my Walmart virginity to a girl I liked during college

At least you didn't lose your virginity in a Walmart.  That'd be pretty sad.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: "Moderate" Rubio attacks Obama for speaking at a mosque on: February 03, 2016, 11:52:35 pm
Rubio said it was what Obama said there, not the fact that he went.  How he characterizes Obama's remarks as divisive I have no clue.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rubio is more hawkish than Graham? on: February 03, 2016, 10:07:39 pm
Rubio voted against the AUMF in Syria in 2013, which was supported by Graham, so that's one obvious way he is less hawkish.  There's def some problems with that list.

Of the remaining candidates, I'd say he's perhaps a little less hawkish than Christie and Fiorina, but more hawkish than the others.

I was expecting the thread title here to be something like "Santorum comes out of the Presidential race"
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who'll get Santorum's endorsement? on: February 03, 2016, 03:19:17 pm
his old buddy Kasich
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Jesus on: February 03, 2016, 12:49:51 pm
FF. According to the Biblical accounts said a lot of great things and a few probably crazy things. Anti-establishment, anti-violence, and lots of his contemporaries hated him. Sounds like a libertarian, right guys? Smiley

Jesus obviously existed, but I don't think you can prove if he was the son of God or not. I wouldn't be surprised if theocratic governments added the religion stuff so that their people could conform to a set lf laws they thought would be better for them, while in reality Jesus was just a cool guy who went around talking about good things like love and whatnot.

There have definitely been attempts by government to shape Christianity into something that could enhance social order, going as far back as Constantine in the 4th century. This was done mostly through trying to stamp out certain beliefs that were considered heretical, rather than completely inventing something new.

But the New Testament, and all its claims about Jesus' divinity, was written by people who were not in control of governments, but were often persecuted by the political authorities. They were considered "atheists" in their day, since they opposed the worship of the Roman Empire's gods, and called Jesus Lord and Son of God instead of the Emperor.  And the Christian religion was developing much of its basic form before any of the New Testament was even written down.

Democratic caucus by precinct



Are these county delegates or SDEs?   Do you know why there are so many blank areas?
