1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is Hillary Clinton right-wing or left-wing or neither? on: April 14, 2016, 11:34:35 am
She's leftist, not center of left. Center of left is Bill Clinton, he actually worked with congress and the Republicans.

Since the Democratic party is all for LGBT, why not choose an open lesbian or a transgender woman VP?

Why do people take McAfee seriously? The guy was investigated for murder and has a lot of personal life issues that could prevent the Libertarians from maybe hitting 3% this cycle.

Because he's still better than the clown (Clinton) to the left of me and the joker (Trump) on the right.

Can you imagine how many protesters there would be at a Trump rally in Denver? That city brings the far left people out of the woodwork.

Why is the state convention in Colorado Springs? Denver is largest metropolitan city in Colorado, doesn't make sense.

I'd be surprised, considering the polls saying how he would have a 1964 Goldwater like washout.

He has for the most part, except for the ski resort areas around Vail, Breckenridge and Aspen.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / What % can Libertarian candidate get from GOP supporters if Trump is nominee? on: April 08, 2016, 09:30:31 pm
What % can the Libertarian candidate get from disenfranchised GOP supporters if Trump is GOP nominee? Depending on who the Libertarian candidate is (Petersen, Johnson, McAfee).
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Libertarian Thread on: April 08, 2016, 08:54:44 pm
Johnson had an awkward closing statement, its like if he's hesitant to say something that he really wanted to.

Quote
Among libertarians I may be controversial but when I talk to regular people with social skills itís different.

There goes the neckbeard-and-fedora vote.
And how much of the vote would that cost? Probably less than 1%.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Republican Colorado district and state conventions results thread on: April 08, 2016, 07:02:49 pm
Have all the delegates been counted in CD-7?

If the LP wants to become a liable 3rd party nationally, they would be smart and attract disenfranchised Cruz supporters. Can you imagine how much the LP would grow if they attracted all of them. I could see Austin Petersen get at least 20-30% of the vote if he was able to pick up every Cruz supporter without alienating borderline anarchists and left-Libertarians.

A great read, and I would vote for the guy if he got the nomination on Libertarian ticket. Very similar to Cruz on most positions. He worked with Glenn Beck in the past, and I could see Glenn Beck voting for him if it's Trump vs Clinton for the general election.

Start a new political party from the ground up.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: What happens first? on: April 05, 2016, 02:25:07 pm
When CA goes Republican, TX goes Democratic. Both states are politically opposite from each other, socially.

Threatening to bomb Mexico would automatically start WW3, not really a good idea.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: GOP vs DEM vs LIB national debate on: April 04, 2016, 02:55:48 pm
The Democratic and Republican nominees would never, ever agree to debate with the libertarian nominee, nor should they. They would have nothing to gain, and the libertarian nominee isn't even chosen by anything close to a democratic process.
Even if they don't agree, doesn't mean they're banned from attending the debate. If they want to debate, let them.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / GOP vs DEM vs LIB national debate on: April 04, 2016, 02:50:51 pm
Is the Libertarian candidate going to have a 3 way debate nationally? We need to have 3 people debating on stage, not just Clinton and Trump.

It's clever in a way.

Trump Effect ad, you have to admit, this is clever.

Fox News, MSNBC, CNN need to start vetting for national Libertarian debates on TV. It's the only way more people get exposed to an alternative 3rd party to the GOP and DEMs.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Libertarian Thread on: April 04, 2016, 01:24:29 am
Libertarian Party Poll - Who won the debate?

Petersen - 45%
Johnson - 23%
McAfee - 19%
Other - 13%

Three way:

Petersen - 51.5%
Johnson - 26.5%
McAfee - 22.0%

I tend to agree. I was disappointing with this debate, even though its just for Stossel's show. All the candidates seemed to have dramatic up and down moments of the debate, Johnson especially is just awkward in his speaking and seems like he never rehearsed or cared. Petersen is the Marco Rubio of the libertarian party presentation wise, and the most libertarian-lite of them all ideologically. He's the candidate that probably doesn't have the best policies but the one that is the most polished who seems very pragmatic and reasonable. McAfee is somewhat weird with his questioning of Stossel, definitely the one that could be casted as 'out there' or whatever, but very polished on some answers with good confidence. I would vote for all three of these guys so I don't mind who gets nominated, what I really want though is for the libertarian party to become much more high-profile than it has been. Its really sad seeing good alternatives being shut out by the corporate media. Its quite sad that this qualifies as an official 'forum' for a political party, and that previous debates that look like they were filmed in a potato and get 88 views on Youtube. Things really need to change...
Well said. I'd vote for any of those 3 over Clinton and Trump.

For DWPerry and Marc Allan Feldman fans disappointed at their exclusion, they apparently went off and had their own debate on April 1 in Washington, DC. It will be posted to the PublicSquare.net YouTube channel sometime pretty soon (it's not there quite yet): https://www.youtube.com/user/PublicSquarenet/videos

DWPerry's giant disembodied head previously debated a Green Party candidate on that same channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXVyK30Zbn4

There was also a debate here in California yesterday, although Perry didn't make it. It was two rounds and featured 4 brand new candidates in the first round, before they were eliminated, and the second round ended up being McAfee, Johnson, Petersen, and Feldman. The livestream was awful and kept cutting out, so I only caught bits and pieces, but I actually thought Feldman did pretty well.
Very awkward. Perry debating through a computer monitor, is this the Matrix now?
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Libertarian Thread on: April 02, 2016, 09:51:33 pm
So under what circumstances would the Libertarian nominee be granted a podium in a general-election debate? I heard that mentioned several times in the debate.

The current rule is 15% in national polls. 

Yeah basically, but there is also the fact that the debate commission is controlled by the republicans and democrats. That might pose a problem.
With Trump as the GOP nominee and no "real Republican" third-party ticket, I could see 15% happening in a poll or two.
The closest alternative to Ted Cruz on the Libertarian ticket is Austin Petersen, watch the debate. He's principled like Cruz but has speaking skills of Marco Rubio. I could vote for him if the election came down to Trump vs Clinton.
