1. Lincoln
3. FDR
8. Clinton
LOL at any of these guys approaching the Top 10

After all, all Lincoln did was save the union and end the abomination that is slavery.

After all, all FDR did was lead the nation out of the great depression and lead the nation to victory through the war.

Mitt easily.

By far  the most competent and capable.

Medicare for all is truly a worthy goal.

With Medicare, all Americans should be cared for totally, without exception, from cradle to grave, funded through personal and corporate taxation, employee deductions.

Those who can pay more should pay more.

One plan for all, total coverage, cut out the waste and graft in the medical system, then total Medicare for all would be affordable.

Inspiring remarks via video from President Trump, ending with three words that have brought so many Americans together for so many years, "Let's Play Ball!"

Here is an excellent link from the Conservative Party of Canada for the leadership voting.

You can check the national vote, each province, each constituency, each ballot.

Gee, thanks. This exact link was posted the day of their election.

Well S O R R Y!

2012-   ISIS likely gets destroyed by late 2014 so no refugee crises, Romney has the economy perform ever better then it does OTL with his tax cuts, and due to that he is reelected in a landslide(which means no Trump), and likely becomes the most successful Republican President since Reagan.

I certainly could not argue with that.

In this thread, I am attempting to determine how long members of this forum believe it will be before Theresa May either resigns the Conservative leadership or is forced out, or if at all.

What is the current procedure under Conservative Party rules for kicking out a leader who doesn't want to go?


British political parties, at least the major ones, are historically not very tolerant of a leader who blows an election as May did this one.

The leader in these cases often resigns or possibly faces a back bench revolt.

 
11  General Politics / International General Discussion / So how long before Theresa May gets the boot? on: June 09, 2017, 07:04:52 pm
After such an abysmal election performance on her part, and after such a devastatingly poor result for the Conservatives, how long before Theresa May gets the boot?

Please discuss.

Edith Wilson, wife of President Woodrow Wilson, was the de facto President of the United States.

http://michiganradio.org/post/edith-wilson-first-lady-and-acting-president

(Scroll down until you come to the section on Edith Wilson)

One of the big questions of the 2016 presidential race is whether we’ll finally see a woman in the White House.

But there’s a little-known secret that’s finally coming to light: It wouldn’t be the first time a woman has run the country.

From late 1919 until March 1921, first lady Edith Galt Wilson was the de facto president of the United States.


Sorry Hillary.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: If Trump gets two terms on: June 04, 2017, 08:39:16 pm
If Trump gets two terms, that will be the will of the voters.

Do not argue with the will of the voters.
15  General Discussion / History / Re: The Ten Worst Running Mates In Presidential History on: June 04, 2017, 08:25:08 pm
I can only go by 1960 onwards so here it goes:

Top Ten Worst:

1. Thomas Eagleton
2. Sarah Palin
3. Curtis Lemay
4. Dan Quayle
5. Spiro Agnew
6. Geraldine Ferraro
7. Joe Liebermann
8. James Stockdale
9. Bob Dole (for his "Democrat Wars" comment)
10. Tim Kaine (he didn't really hurt the ticket, but he didn't help either and made a buffoon of himself in the debate with Pence. He also reinforced the notion that Clinton was too establishment)

Top Ten Best:

1. Walter Mondale
2. LBJ
3. Al Gore
4. George HW Bush
5. Joe Biden
6. Mike Pence (as someone else said, he gave Trump the Evangelical Vote. Another VP might've lost Trump the election)
7. Dick Cheney (for all the man's evil deeds and faults, he did help Bush in 2000 and it was seen as a respectable choice on both sides of the isle at the time)
8. Hubert Humphrey
9. Edmund Muskie
10. Jack Kemp


Nice to see you did not include William E. Miller on the "worst" list.
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Democrats want Hillary to leave the spotlight on: June 04, 2017, 08:15:07 pm
Democrats want Hillary to shut-up and leave the spotlight.

Do you agree with those Democrats?

But for Clinton acolytes, don't worry, Chelsea will always be there to pick up the Clinton torch.

Would President Donald Trump be willing to throw his son-in-law Jared Kushner under the bus if he deemed it necessary?

Please vote and discuss.

I just wanna know the general consensus: is Scheer a good choice for the party (and by that i mean could he lead conservatives to victory in 2019)?

Scheer will make a great Prime Minister.

He has what it takes.

More interesting, I think, is whether you would accept, Winfield.

Being a non-drinker, I would decline the offer.

However, I wouldn't mind starring in a reality TV show about the Atlas Forum, with appearances, of course, by the many and varied interesting characters and diverse personalities who populate this web site.  Smiley

If you had the opportunity to be hired as "The Booze Traveler" for the reality TV show , would you accept?

Why or why not?
21  General Discussion / History / Re: The Ten Worst Running Mates In Presidential History on: May 25, 2017, 10:36:28 am
Quote from the article:

Bill Miller wasn't a bad choice for a running mate. He had prosecuted Nazis during the Nuremberg trials. He was a former New York State Attorney General, a U.S. Congressman and was head of the Republican National Committee when he was selected as Barry Goldwater's running mate.

(Actually he was not New York State Attorney General, rather he was district attorney of Niagara County, New York )

I would like to make a case for William E Miller, Republican VP candidate in 1964.

He had some solid qualifications, a law degree, served honorably in the military as an officer, legal experience, political experience, and even prosecuted Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg.

He may not have helped the ticket, but neither was he detrimental to the ticket. Goldwater himself was the biggest drag on the ticket.

I do not believe that Miller belongs on the list.
22  General Discussion / Alternative History / 1968 if not Agnew then who? 1972 if not Agnew then who? on: May 22, 2017, 11:58:08 pm
Fact, 1968, Republican Presidential nominee Richard Nixon picked Maryland Governor Spiro Agnew as his Vice Presidential running mate.

Fact, 1973, Vice President Spiro Agnew resigned and then pleaded no contest to criminal charges of tax evasion while Governor of Maryland.

What If

Scenario 1

1968, Nixon was giving consideration to Agnew for Vice President, but had heard rumors of possible criminal activities engaged in by Agnew, so he decided not to pick Agnew for Vice President.

Who does Nixon pick for Vice President in this case?

What If

Scenario 2

1968, Nixon finds out after Agnew became the Vice Presidential nominee, say September 1 1968, of Agnew's criminal past, who does Nixon then replace Agnew with as the Vice Presidential nominee?

What If

Scenario 3

February 1 1972, Vice President Agnew's criminal past becomes known, Agnew resigns from office on February 2, 1972, who does President Nixon replace Agnew with as Vice President?

(Most likely this person would as well be the 1972 running mate with Nixon on the Republican ticket)
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Who would be President Pence's Vice President? on: May 21, 2017, 07:52:08 pm
Former Governor Mitt Romney MA

Senator John Thune SD

Senator Shelley Moore Capito WV

Governor Brian Sandoval NV

Governor Susana Martinez NM

Governor Greg Abbott TX

Former Congressman J.C. Watts OK

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice CA

25  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Non alcoholic beer with a craft beer taste. Let's replace alcoholic beer. on: May 19, 2017, 11:44:18 am
So is Winfield endorsing communism? No more personal responsibility, government should control what people can and can't do because a lot of bad stuff has happened!

I fully realize there are many things beyond our control, and that unfortunate and tragic events are going to occur, but less alcohol consumption will, I believe, result in saving lives.
