Yes. In fact we need to bring social conservatives into the party en masse, in particular on gun issues but abortion is good too.

Great way to break the Democratic Party into two separate ones and insure permanent Republican rule.

Because this current "anything goes on economic policies but DON'T YOU DARE oppose abortion or gay marriage" attitude is working so well for Democrats right now.

Also, Jesus Christ at the number of purported "leftists" who support pond scum like Macron.

Muh electability, muh pragmatism.

This is a great idea! Cheesy I think it should be stickied.

When it comes to tearing down frats, the end justifies the means.

*fraternities

You know that you correcting me that way only makes me want to say frat again, right? Tongue

Congratulations, you can now have oh so much in common with blonde-haired, six-foot Laxbros that never developed a set of skills that didn't involve twirling a lacrosse stick, getting a "Leadership" minor, or vigorously mixing a protein shake.

Huh, I had no idea that the most vocal critics of frats were guys like that, but okay.

Oh no, not critical to any necessary extent--simply verbally lazy and informally.

Eh, I think there are contexts where using some shortcuts and slangs works well, but overall I wouldn't say I'm like that.

Here's my full ranking, if anyone was curious:

1. Hamon
2. Poutou
3 Lassalle
4. Mélenchon
5. Dupont-Aignan
6. Arthaud
7. Cheminade
8. FBM
9. Asselineau
10. Blank vote
11. Fillon
12. Panzergirl

I'm curious as to why you have Dupont-Aignan relatively pretty high - just right below Melenchon even above the most Flawless and Beautifulest of us.

He strikes me as a pretty earnest and sensible guy, and his social Gaullism is probably the brand of conservatism in France that I dislike least. From what I've seen, his economic program is to the left of FBM's. He's a sovereignist, which is annoying, but he's not a xenophobe.

In Nebraska, yeah, that makes perfect sense in strategic terms.

Retaining an absent monarch, already stripped from all, even most theoretical, responsibilities simply does not, as a robot would say, compute.

John Stuart Mill once spoke of "that very frequent infirmity of English minds, which makes them take a preposterous pleasure in the assertion of a bad principle, when they are no longer bad enough to desire to carry it really into practice."

It seems the English have spread this disease everywhere they settled, aside from the US.

Just about every American post in the UK General Election thread belongs here.

You don't think the Raving Loony Green Giant Party would be best at governing the U.K. at this point?

Yeah, I don't think regular posters on a board that overwhelmingly backed Owen Smith last year have the right to diss anyone else tbh.

I'm pretty sure Labour wouldn't be looking at being reduced to 100-150 seats if Smith had won.

I believe in an aristocracy of the sensitive. Those with the capacity to feel shame ought not be the only ones called upon to redact past injustices.

1. what
2. Anyone as sensitive as you'd want them to be would find this idea despicable.
