77  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Constitutional Convention / Re: Number of Regions/Regional Governments (Voting on Amendment) on: January 08, 2016, 11:42:41 am
I do not mind some regional latitude, however, my fear is if given too much authority, they will tend to go overboard, rather than steer a reasonable course.

We already all know, for example, that the regions are going to be renaming themselves with silly and ridiculous names and titles for office holders.

Some restrictions should be put in place which the regions will have to follow and adhere to.

Drawing a huge salary for serving on corporate boards.

He has no political future.


Sadly, you're right. Maybe a run for N.Y. Senate in 2018 against Gillibrand if a Hillary Clinton administration is widely unpopular by 2018.

He's 73 by then, not a great age to be taking on a tough political challenge.
79  General Discussion / History / Re: Which foreign policy blunder was worse? on: January 07, 2016, 11:10:12 pm
Clearly Vietnam.

It was obviously unwinnable from the start, resulting in over a million Vietnamese killed, 58,000 Americans killed, in a war that resulted in the same outcome as if America had not been in it in the first place, i.e. taken over by the North.

In spite of his other accomplishments while in office, Lyndon B Johnson will always be remembered as the President who took America into this unwinnable foreign adventure in the jungles of South Vietnam, resulting in the slaughter of thousands of young Americans.

The biggest, costliest blunder ever entered into by a U.S. President.

Johnson became a tool of the military industrial complex, and well deserves his place in history as a completely inept President.

HEY HEY LBJ, HOW MANY KIDS DID YOU KILL TODAY? is his well deserved epitaph.

Even as a loyal Romney supporter, and a Rubio supporter, I will have to admit, that given this scenario, the only state added for Romney is Florida.

For Romney to have flipped other states, he would have to have run a much better campaign, preferably gaffe free.
81  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Past Election What-ifs (US) / Re: 1968 The Three Georges', who wins? on: January 07, 2016, 07:50:06 pm

There's no way that a man who marched with MLK would get southern votes.

George Romney was a champion in the civil rights movement, and supported King's goals, but George Romney and Martin Luther King Jr never did march together during any march or event.

In 1965, Romney led a march of 10,000 people in Detroit to protest events in Selma, Ala. King wasn't there. When King died in 1968, George Romney attended the funeral.

You need boots in New Hampshire in January.  It is, after all, in the snow region.  Only an idiot would wear shoes there in January.

At this time, New York is clearly out of reach for the Republican nominee, whoever that may be.

Portman is a great pick.

I'm just glad that whoever wins the general, be it Clinton or Trump, they'll have run on an explicitly pro-feminist platform! What progress! Remember, just four years ago, Mitt Romney officially declared war on women. And now we have proud feminist Donald Trump! Wow!

But may I remind you, my friend, that when Mitt ran and won for Governor of Massachusetts, he had a woman running mate for Lieutenant Governor.

Need I say more?  Smiley

What is this world  coming to?

We can't even trust a man of the common people any more!

We can't even trust a man who purports to speak for the down trodden masses anymore!

Well, I guess a crook is still a crook whether they come from a famous political background or whether they rise up from obscurity.

President.

I love shaking hands with exuberant crowds, kissing babies, and giving pointless stump speeches for which people inexplicably cheer. 
93  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Christie likes loyalty-would he pick Rubio as his VP? on: January 04, 2016, 11:35:28 pm
In the extremely unlikely event that Christie wins the nomination, no, he will not pick Rubio for VP.

Besides, I doubt very much Rubio would even accept.

Rubio is too smart to run on a ticket with a disreputable politician like Christie.

95  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: TRUMP to campaign in Burlington on Thursday! on: January 04, 2016, 11:21:44 pm
Well, there no doubt at least 1400 loonies in Burlington and vicinity who would love to attend a Trump rally.
96  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Does Biden regret not running this cycle? on: January 04, 2016, 11:18:09 pm
No, I do not believe that Biden does regret not running.

I believe after internal polling he came to realize that he could not defeat Hillary for the nomination and he did not want to have his last political campaign go down as a big defeat.

I think he is happy with his decision.
97  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who is more likely to become president? on: January 04, 2016, 11:06:52 pm
Although both have absolutely no chance of being elected President, Christie has more of a chance than does Sanders.

Marco!
99  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Does Bush or Rubio need to be on the Republican ticket? on: January 04, 2016, 09:38:09 pm
Yes, Rubio.

Rubio needs to be the Republican Presidential nominee in order for the Republicans to win the Presidency.
