Alaska isn't really libertarian.

Yeah, the state has socialized oil, after all. The state is big on public-funded projects; that's part of what made Palin so popular prior to 2008. Sure, they barely voted to legalize marijuana, but that hardly makes it libertarian nowadays.

Idaho Governor, 2014:

I ended up with a lot of the extra vote left over after changing the winner in as many as I could, so I started ratcheting up Balukoff's percentage based on the Atlas scale.

The final result was

Otter: 202,554 (46.05%)
Balukoff: 202,407 (46.02%)

It's the best state in the country.

Get ready for four years of gridlock, Alaska.  You tossed out the decent, bipartisan Republican for an extreme, hackish "Independent."  You've made your bed, now lie in it.

It's almost completely what you make of it. The defaults are awful, but there's some good stuff underneath.

11  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: If marijuana is legal, what should be the minimum age for smoking it? on: November 18, 2014, 11:44:24 pm
21, which should also be the legal age for smoking tobacco (as long as tobacco is legal).

Here's the real question: Does Landrieu get a higher or lower share of the vote in the runoff than in the general?

Forsyth, as I'm likely rich in such a scenario.

17  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Drug testing on: November 17, 2014, 09:36:55 pm
If public money's going to be wasted, I'd rather it be on testing than going to drug dealers. If a parent would rather use drugs than get money for their children, then ACS should take them away ASAP.
18  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would YOU vote in a Reid vs. Sandoval Senate Race? on: November 17, 2014, 09:00:29 pm
Harry Reid. The last thing we need is more pro-choice Republicans in power.

Because the list is so large...

Larger than the list of pro-life Democrats in power. Consider, for example, this year's Senate and Gubernatorial elections. Somewhat pro-life Democrats running nationally: Childers, Griffith, Pryor, Ross, and Sheheen. All lost. The list of pro-choice Republican candidates includes Aiona, Baker, Brown, Collins, Foley, Fung, Herr, Hogan, Kashkari, Milne, Rauner, Sandoval, Wehby. At least five won.

Harry Reid. The last thing we need is more pro-choice Republicans in power.

Which is worse than a pro-choice Democrat?

Very much so, yes. Without abortion opposition, the Republican Party has very few redeeming qualities, unlike the Democratic Party.
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Barack Obama on: November 17, 2014, 02:42:53 pm
I don't know if I'll ever understand the depth of hatred some people have toward him. He's not ideal, but he's still one of my favorite Democrats in high office.
20  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Countries you've not been to: Which 5 do you want to visit the most? on: November 17, 2014, 02:29:39 pm
1. New Zealand

3. Chile
4. Japan
5. Spain
6. China
7. Croatia
8. Argentina
9. Norway
10. Greece

I've only been to the US, Canada (5), Mexico (7), Italy (1), and the Vatican (1).
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you vote on the Keystone XL Pipeline? on: November 17, 2014, 01:52:06 pm
How exactly would this pipeline be bad for the environment? It's not like the Albertan shale isn't going to be extracted, transported, sold, and consumed without it.
22  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Major League Baseball HOT STOVE! on: November 17, 2014, 12:38:09 pm
Big day already:

1) Stanton signs for 13/325.
2) Russell Martin to Toronto for 5/82.
3) Atlanta trades Jason Heyward and Jordan Walden to Cardinals for Shelby Miller and Tyrell Jenkins

Seems like the Heyward trade came out of nowhere, but it makes some sense. St. Louis needed another outfielder after Taveras's death, and they clear room for Carlos Martinez to start. I'm not sure I understand it from the Braves's point of view, though.

24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Progressives Have a Solution for the Mid-Term Disaster on: November 17, 2014, 11:11:02 am
Supporting the minimum wage doesn't make you a progressive. Rick Santorum supports a minimum wage increase.

Rick Santorum is a "compassionate conservative" type, though. Hardly the norm in Republican circles these days.

Yeah, I'm really surprised Jones didn't pull that one out. Idaho schools are a well-known disaster zone.
