3  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Questions for 2012 Romney supporters on: April 10, 2014, 10:35:53 pm
There is no way Romney runs for the Republican nomination in 2016.

In the extremely unlikely event he does, the Republicans will not nominate him.

I still believe he would have made a great President, however, his time has passed.

2020 Election

Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton/Maine Senator Susan Collins                                    274
Incumbent President Hillary Clinton/Incumbent Vice President John Hickenlooper     264

Collins is credited with bringing in Maine and New Hampshire for the Republican ticket, and thus the election.

President Elect Cotton owes Vice President Elect Collins big time.

More of how they are the same

They both have prestigious master's degrees from one of the top rated ivy league universities in the world, Harvard.

He had his downside, but he was sure amiable.

Can't help but love the guy.

I agree that Nixon, Ford and Bush had positive accomplishments as well, even George W Bush had positive accomplishments.

I am also more than willing to credit Carter, Clinton, and Obama for their positive accomplishments as well. 
11  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Ronald Reagan on: April 05, 2014, 02:15:44 pm
Reagan's detractors will to go to any length to deny his accomplishments, as proven above.

They simply refuse to accept the fact that he had considerable positive accomplishments during his Presidency.

I guess Clark Clifford summed Reagan best: "an amiable dunce".

Well, this "amiable dunce" became an extremely popular two term President of the United States, while Clifford is most remembered as a key figure in the Bank of Credit and Commerce International scandal, which led to a grand jury indictment.


Warren Harding and Calvin Coolidge were both extremely popular presidents when they were in office too.

As were FDR and Eisenhower, so I fail to see your point in relation to Reagan and Clifford.
My point being is that popularity in office =/= being a good president

I agree with your statement about popularity and being a good President, however, I was responding to a statement that supposedly Clifford made about Reagan, and my reply was that Reagan went much further in public life than Clifford ever did, comparing Reagan to Clifford, not to other Presidents.

15  Questions and Answers / Presidential Election Process / Re: What if in the 2016 primaries.......... on: March 30, 2014, 09:55:55 pm
Well since not every single convention delegate is chosen through the primaries there would just be really small conventions that chooses the candidates.

But  I am wondering if the parties have some requirement that the candidate is chosen predominantly through the primary process, in order to have as much public participation as possible.  If that is the case, they would not have met the requirements in choosing a legitimate candidate.

That is really my point in presenting this impossible scenario.

Yeah, you're "just curious" about what would happen in this fantastical scenario, where all the ballots go missing, and mysteriously "no one voted".  I'm sure it's not because you're planning something nefarious.  Tongue


No, I am talking about nobody voting, not ballots gone missing.

Alfred, I realize the comparison you intend, however, this is Fantasy Elections.

Nixon is a character from real life, and therefore, I do not believe he exists in this fantasy land.   

I've always gone under the assumption that everything before 2004 happened as it did and that we seized power in a coup, killing every other politician so that people like Obama and Romney never existed. What's the official position?

Well, that would be an absolute tragedy if Romney never existed.  Smiley

Ah, but Henry Kissinger was indeed one of the foremost authorities in the field of diplomacy and international relations.

From Wiki a summary of his public service and academic credentials

A recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize, he served as National Security Advisor and later concurrently as Secretary of State in the administrations of Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. After his term, his opinion was still sought by some subsequent U.S. presidents and other world leaders.

Henry Kissinger received his AB degree summa cum laude in political science at Harvard College in 1950, where he lived in Adams House and studied under William Yandell Elliott. He received his MA and PhD degrees at Harvard University in 1952 and 1954, respectively. In 1952, while still at Harvard, he served as a consultant to the director of the Psychological Strategy Board. His doctoral dissertation was titled "Peace, Legitimacy, and the Equilibrium (A Study of the Statesmanship of Castlereagh and Metternich)".

Kissinger remained at Harvard as a member of the faculty in the Department of Government and, with Robert R. Bowie, co-founded the Center for International Affairs in 1958. In 1955, he was a consultant to the National Security Council's Operations Coordinating Board. During 1955 and 1956, he was also study director in nuclear weapons and foreign policy at the Council on Foreign Relations. He released his book Nuclear Weapons and Foreign Policy the following year. From 1956 to 1958 he worked for the Rockefeller Brothers Fund as director of its Special Studies Project. He was director of the Harvard Defense Studies Program between 1958 and 1971. He was also director of the Harvard International Seminar between 1951 and 1971. Outside of academia, he served as a consultant to several government agencies, including the Operations Research Office, the Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, and the Department of State, and the Rand Corporation, a think-tank.

Reagan rebuilt America's armed forces whereby the U.S. was able to pursue a policy of peace through strength, reversing the weakening of the military during the Carter administration.
You are aware that the military build up was started by Jimmy Carter, right?

Carter was weak and vacillating in defense matters

E.g., he cut back on the navy's shipbuilding program, while the Soviets had strengthened their forces.

Even Democratic Senator Henry Jackson found Carter to be weak, ineffective, and confused in defense matters. 

Scoop Jackson found everyone short of Jack D. Ripper to be weak, ineffective, and confused in defense matters.

Henry Kissinger, one of the foremost authorities on defense and foreign policy matters in history, held the same view on Carter's defense policies as did Scoop Jackson, in other words, Kissinger found Carter's defense policies to be weak, ineffective, and confused.
22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Based God Polling: Do you support group marriages? on: March 26, 2014, 09:05:16 pm
Anyway, nobody has refuted my statements that the proposed group marriage policy sets a different requirement for group marriages than it does for other marriages, therefore setting a standard of inequality in group marriages as opposed to other marriages.

I can only assume, therefore, that my statements in this matter are accurate.
