Oppose. As Ernest (was it?) pointed out a while ago, conservatives should support the right for employers to decide whether they want their employees to be in a union or not.

Hillary will have both the MSM and the financial establishment firmly behind her should she decide to run. If she does, then she is a near certainty to be the next POTUS (alas).

12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Opinion of Andrew Peacock on: March 28, 2014, 04:02:35 pm
Just got done watching a documentary on the first fifty years of the Australian Liberal Party, and I have to say that Peacock, both in the interview and archive footage, came across as immensely unlikeable. Far more so than Howard, in fact. HP.

I'm not a fan of any of the alliterative Presidents.

Useless third-wayer.
Really, third wayer? I thought he got elected on a largely Progressive platform? Or are you confusing him with Cuomo?

Well, third-wayers are "progressive" by and large.

Useless third-wayer.

You should remember and know the outbreak of celebrations of Thatcher's death. Is she as bad as Phelps and OBL?

Maybe not, but you certainly are.

He's dead.

18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Why was the GOP never able to take out Barbara Boxer in CA? on: March 16, 2014, 02:38:34 pm
She pulls the constant "proud liberal" thing every freakin' time she's up for re-election and it works. 

Why is that surprising? California is obviously a pretty left-leaning state (in American terms) and while Boxer stands to the left of 90ish U.S. Senators, she's not Dennis Kucinich.
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of George Wallace on: March 16, 2014, 02:33:02 pm
He was never really a segregationist at heart; it was an attention-whoring phase he went through during the 60s. I suppose, in a way, he can be seen as an American Enoch Powell - not the monster he's often made out to be but still an HP overall.
20  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Christopher Hitchens VS Richard Dawkins on: March 16, 2014, 02:30:30 pm
Hitchens would most certainly make a better drinking buddy than Dawkins.

All of the above.

Rather generic, but FF I suppose (he doesn't seem to be a silly Moderate Hero at least).

Does the "True Left" even exist outside of the internet?
