The Winfield legacy lives on.

Seems like this wealthy gentleman is intent on losing his money in a hopeless cause.

I think he has an overinflated ego and that  he is living in a fantasy world if he thinks he has a chance.

Dude, why you obsessed with Donna Edwards being Sanders VP? It's such a random idea for you to be so committed to it.

True, it is a very random idea, and we all know it will never happen.  But it is simply for a point of discussion, and there are many, many threads on this forum which are simply for discussion.

You know, what I try to do is to address the question or the point raised in the original post, not get all uptight about it.

But..........

I believe Sanders would take Edwards off of his short list for Vice President, due to the fact that her loss in the primary election comes so close to the Presidential election.

Impressive, but one must not forget that Madison is a rather liberal city.

Mr. Dkrol, do you have a plan to tackle poverty in Atlasia?

If so, can you elaborate for us, or will the reduction of poverty be part of your platform that will be announced at a later date?

Thank you.

That's minor plastic surgery?

Why did you get plastic surgery?  Are you able to share the details with us?
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Question about Semator Bernie Sanders and Congresswoman Donna Edwards on: June 30, 2015, 02:19:13 pm
This scenario is HIGHLY unlikely, but just cooperate please.  Smiley

Senator Bernie Sanders wins the Democratic Presidential nomination.

Congresswoman Donna Edwards of Maryland runs for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Barbara Mikulski.  Edwards loses the Senate nomination primary to Congressman Chris Van Hollen.

Let us suppose that Donna Edwards had been high on Sanders list of possible nominees for Vice President.

Does the fact that Edwards lost the Senate primary election have any bearing on whether he picks Edwards or picks somebody else as his running mate?

Please discuss.

Thanks.

Has a Senator ever been recalled?

Thank you.

However, big business, when faced with a 5% increase in corporate taxation, would tend under such circumstances to announce lay offs, thus increasing, potentially considerably, the unemployment rate.

Bush is correct.

I have always maintained that the Republican Party must return to its' roots and once again become a big tent party.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scott Walker still can't answer questions on: June 30, 2015, 01:03:55 pm
I do not really believe that Scott Walker is actually qualified for the big office.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Does a candidates attractiveness matter? on: June 30, 2015, 01:02:08 pm
Unfortunately, attractiveness does matter. 

Many people look at the outside,

If there are two people standing in front of you, dressed the same, one attractive, the other not so much, and they both give you a pitch, and say trust me, nine out of ten will find the more attractive person more believable.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will he or won't he? on: June 30, 2015, 12:51:48 pm
I do not believe he will enter the race.

He does not want to lose to Hillary.

By not running, he would be retiring with an enviable record of public service to his state and nation.   
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Best running mate for Christie? on: June 30, 2015, 12:42:48 pm
Whether Christie can win the nomination or not is not the question.  The question is who would be the best running mate for Christie.

Unlike most of the above replies, I will give some serious names in response to this question.

Since Christie is a Governor, a U.S. Senator would prove to be useful as one who would have legislative and DC experience.

Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, young, up and coming, well educated
Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, young, experienced, would help in the crucial state of Florida
Senator Mark Kirk of Illinois, would help in the Midwest
Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska, young, new generation of Republican, extremely well educated
Senator Rob Portman of Ohio, experienced, would help in the crucial state of Ohio and in the Midwest
Senator John Thune of South Dakota, safe, solid, non controversial, experienced
Senator Shelley Ann Capito of West Virginia, experienced, respected, adds a female to the ticket, which may prove useful in this campaign

Brief Statement
I will be a candidate for Labour in the upcoming Northeast Senate Special Election.

If elected, I will work to reduce poverty across the region and country and attempt to make our society more equal. I will attempt to work with others, regardless of party or ideology - as I have done in the Northeast Assembly over the previous two terms.

If anyone has any questions - feel free to ask.



I have to say I enjoyed working with you in the Northeast Assembly.

Could you elaborate on your poverty reduction plan, which is a noble goal indeed.

Do you plan on proposing to drastically alter the tax structure to have the wealthy finance this plan?

I realize things like losing internet access can happen, of course it could happen, and it could happen under a certain set of circumstances to any of us, or to anybody, who uses the internet.

Of course this could happen, but the timing just seems a little odd to me.

Just sayin'.

Already a special election has to be called because one of his friends cannot swear in.

24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sanders/Bullock on: June 28, 2015, 04:01:51 pm
No. Sanders is a true believer and would pick a liberal woman/minority as his VP.

Donna Edwards
