1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is it just me, or does Trump seem untouchable? on: July 29, 2015, 09:11:34 am
I doubt anyone supports Trump because they think he's a good person. Trump's built a persona wherein he is defined by the ability to say and do things no one else can and get away with it, and people are generally aware of this or even drawn to it when they get on the Trump Train.

I don't see how skipping debates could possibly help Bush, Walker, or Rubio unless they literally cancelled the debate. It would just give Trump more air time at their expense.

Gingrich only got taken down because he failed to win Florida. That failure resulted in Santorum's resurgence to sweep MN, MO, and CO.

There's no stopping the Trump Train.
7  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Jeb Bush calls for balanced budget amendment, line-item veto on: July 21, 2015, 04:04:29 pm
Budget deficits, unless extreme, are good for the US. Bush is diminishing in my eyes.

We're still waiting on Gilmore and possibly Ehrlich.

he said "major"

I figured that he meant actual non-joke candidates (Sydney's Voluptious Buttocks for example) since Pataki was included in the list. I consider Pataki, Gilmore, and Ehrlich all about on the same level.

Pataki's at least polling well in NY. Gilmore's at 1% in VA.

In addition to many of the above, I'll nominate any time someone deliberately contorts a term to make it "scary" a la "Demoncrap" or "Rethuglican".
10  About this Site / The Atlas / Re: So what colors are we going to use for the 2016 Presidential Primaries? on: July 21, 2015, 12:42:10 pm
There's close to zero chance Gilmore or Ehrlich ever lead a single poll.

All the major GOP candidates have announced, right? Can we get polls up now?
12  About this Site / The Atlas / Re: So what colors are we going to use for the 2016 Presidential Primaries? on: July 20, 2015, 10:21:55 am
I would imagine Clinton will be red and Sanders probably green, but maybe blue.

Judging by what happened in 2011, Dave will probably make whoever's leading in the GOP polls when he makes the page blue, next green, next red, next yellow, next orange, etc.

14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: American Communities Project: Mapping US Counties on: July 17, 2015, 04:49:35 pm
lol at Spokane being a college town. I'd have made up a few more categories including "tourist traps" or something like that.
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump on: July 17, 2015, 04:41:03 pm
Clearly, I'm a conservative Republican. That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if this is the case:



Might even flip Montana, Indiana, West Virginia, and South Carolina to Clinton.

Trump won't win New York.
Don't flip your colors.
I prefer the official colors.

There's no such thing as "official colors" in the US. The Red=Republican, Blue=Democrat schema literally makes zero sense.
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Bill Walker will expand Medicaid without consent from legislature on: July 17, 2015, 11:52:50 am
Wasn't this guy elected with a combination of Democrats and Tea Partiers?  I wonder what his Tea Party supporters think of this.

This was probably the largest plank of his platform, so no one should be surprised.

I will never vote for Walker.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 2016 Atlas Forums Republican Straw Poll on: July 11, 2015, 08:38:36 pm
Would vote for: Santorum, Huckabee, Bush, Kasich

Would not vote for: Everyone else

This quote of his concerning Medicaid expansion got me on the Kasich bandwagon:

The most-important thing for this legislature to think about: Put yourself in somebody else’s shoes. Put yourself in the shoes of a mother and a father of an adult child that is struggling. Walk in somebody else’s moccasins. Understand that poverty is real.

I had a conversation with one of the members of the legislature the other day. I said, ‘I respect the fact that you believe in small government. I do, too. I also know that you’re a person of faith.

‘Now, when you die and get to the meeting with St. Peter, he’s probably not going to ask you much about what you did about keeping government small. But he is going to ask you what you did for the poor. You better have a good answer.’

So, what happens if Trump actually wins NH?
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President of Spokane NAACP outed as white imposter on: June 19, 2015, 04:12:35 pm
Transracial makes more sense than transgender, honestly.

But it's less real.

Only feels are real.

Like the feels that make trans people kill themselves? The ones caused by people like you?

The fact that mentally unstable people act unstably is unfortunate, but I don't see how it makes their cause somehow a noblesse oblige. Depressed people kill themselves. Grad students kill themselves. Religious extremists kill themselves. People do terrible, selfish things for all manner of reasons.

Some are willing to die to tear down the immutability of morality and objective reality to establish a world where identity and truth exists from moment-to-moment on your own selfish feelings, whims, and wishes. They are not martyrs. They are extremists, and people are too afraid to offend anyone that they decide to placate them instead.

If my wife transitioned, it would be grounds for an annulment, but that would never happen, so meh. If she decided she were secretly a man but didn't do anything, my opinion of her might go down, but that's about it.
