76  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Justice Ginsburg: Trump would ruin the Supreme Court on: July 13, 2016, 12:34:35 am
Time for Ruth to pack it in.

Falling asleep during court sessions, now a Supreme Court Judge who has extremely inappropriately and very stupidly thrown herself into the Presidential campaign, playing right into Trump's hands.

She's completely lost it.

Resign, resign, resign before you embarrass yourself further.

And by the way, with Judges like Ginsburg, the Supreme Court has already been ruined.

I ask again, since most involved are running away from my question.

Do you support life in prison, without parole, ever, for first degree murderers?

I believe New York City already has a very modern and functional capital region in place, and I think, although not sure, that millions have been spent in revising this region, so NYC is probably the best choice overall.

Here's another possible design, inspired by the flag of the Vermont Republic:



I actually quite like this flag.  
80  General Discussion / Alternative History / Re: What if Carter had picked Church in 1976? on: July 11, 2016, 03:09:40 pm
It's well known that Church rallied hard for the spot, and that Carter nearly picked him.

Would he have won the West Coast?

And would Church have been enough to keep more liberals on board in 1980?

With Church on the ticket, I see no reason why Carter would not still win.

I can't see much change in the electoral map.

Well, I always love a good conspiracy theory.  Smiley

It is possible that had scandal engulfed his administration in 1971 and 1972 instead of in 1973 and 1974 that Nixon could have lost.

Wilson third term

1920, Wilson was seriously ill, physically immobile, and in seclusion.

He wanted to be re-nominated, but under the circumstances, there is no way the party would pick him again.
84  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Nelson Rockefeller's Running Mate in 1964 on: July 09, 2016, 10:39:12 pm
In 1964, popular sentiment for the assassinated JFK, and riding a wave of support for LBJ as the one who would carry on the JFK legacy, there is no way that any Republican, not even Rocky, would be able to win.

Of course, the 1964 electoral map would look markedly different than the real one with Rocky as the nominee, but he still loses by a wide margin to LBJ.

I believe Rocky could have won the Presidency in 1968 if he had been able to secure the nomination.

Corker

So much for that idea.

Although he has taken himself out of contention, I still believe he would be one of the best picks for Trump.

I have never seen such Republican pontification in my entire life.
89  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is Trump the worst candidate ever? on: July 07, 2016, 12:19:26 pm
Yes, with Hillary running a close second.
90  General Discussion / History / Re: Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone? on: July 06, 2016, 10:18:18 pm
No.

We all know that both John F Kennedy and Robert F Kennedy had affairs with actress Marilyn Monroe.

We also know that both JFK and RFK broke off their relationships with MM when she was becoming a liability, and that she committed suicide.

I believe that Marilyn Monroe's housekeeper hired a shooter to assassinate JFK, and possibly RFK as well.

Mr ascott, I was just curious if you previously went under another name in Atlasia.

If you would be so kind to clarify, I would appreciate it.

Please, not Castro.

In the twenty first century, the Vice President has to be someone who can take over the Presidency and be able to carry out the duties of President competently and credibly.

Castro is a light weight, and is simply not prepared to become President.

The Vice Presidency in this day and age is simply too important to be determined by tokenism.

I basicly agree. But I think we won't have a succeeding Vice President (through acension under the 25th amendment, not elected like Poppy Bush) for the next time. The last one was in 1974. The chances for a president to die in office are much lower than they were fifty plus years ago.
But even if one subscribes to your statement, that is still no reason to pick someone who is obviously totally unqualified to assume the Presidency should that become necessary.

95  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which of these #NeverTrump folks will hold the line? on: July 03, 2016, 07:57:41 pm
These are all intelligent people, who are not red necks, who are not racists, who have not called women slobs, dogs, and fat pigs, who do not make fun of disabled people, who do not advocate carpet bombing babies and toddlers, so they will all "hold the line".  

Are.  You.  Fookin.  Serious?  Their entire party has been all about those things since at least Nixon.  It is amazing how indignant these people get when they have a man on the ticket who at least has the nads to say "yeah you are all scumbags" when they have been abusing all those groups you listed, have supported extreme economic and foreign policy racism for decades, and made the GOP a Christian Identity party during Bush with bombing Middle Eastern nations back to the Stone Age and stating on a national party platform that gays are a menace to society.

Seriously,  I might hate you hypocrites more than Trump.  At least he isn't hiding his beliefs under holier than thou respectable WASP snobbery.


The Republican Party is not a racist party.  There may be some individuals in the party who are, but the mainline Republicans are not.  You will find some racist Democrats too my friend.

No Republican Presidential candidate besides Trump has ever called women slobs, dogs, and fat pigs.

No Republican Presidential candidate has ever made fun of disabled people, as I am aware.

No Republican Presidential candidate besides Trump has advocated intentionally bombing babies and toddlers.  The bombings were more strategic.

By the way, the biggest escalation and mass bombings was ordered by Democrat Lyndon Johnson.

The bigger issue here is this shows extreme poor judgment on the part of Trump, which is indicative of how he would manage the Presidency.

Why New Hampshire?

I should they would rather take New Mexico and Texas first before spreading north.

100  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Opinion of these TRUMP surrogates on: July 01, 2016, 09:45:52 pm
The Trump surrogates, men and women, are, without a doubt, the most annoying surrogates I have ever heard in any election which I have followed.

They are scared to death to say the slightest contrary thing about Trump, even agreeing that Trump was right in accusing Ted Cruz's father for having something to do with the Kennedy assassination.
