1  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: The Big Bad Swedish Politics & News Thread on: April 29, 2016, 02:27:57 pm
Let's hope that the Swedish Green Party doesn't get 4% the next election.

It's not that unlikely that they actually fall below it at this point. This is far from the Greens first fock up the last year. Anyway, the two co-leaders of the party is now at risk of being ousted from their positions at the party's national congress in two weeks because of the party's complete collapse.

Can we please blame those actually responsible? That being the Arizona GOP.

Well obviously, since Hillary and the Arizona GOP are in the same crony establishment it's really her fault by proxy... obviously.
3  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: JEB! endorses CRUZ! on: March 23, 2016, 09:46:25 am

I knew, in the end, that the race would come down to the Establishment having to deal with Cruz (Satan Lite) vs. Trump (The Great Satan). 

Still think they're making the wrong choice. It's like picking Emperor Palpatine over Jabba the Hut. The later might be a grotesque, sexist, slug, but it's the former that can electrify you to death with the force while being perfectly polite and proper while doing it.

Do anyone think the terror attacks in Belgium will push people to Trump in todays races? "Ban the Muslims from entering" would seem to be a much more tempting offer to the masses a day such as this.

Trump only being at 31%  is actually a surprisingly weak result for him. I'd have expected him in the 40's at least. I'd really hate to agree with Vosem on anything related to Trump's victory chances, but if anti-trump vote start coalescing more towards a single candidate as election day gets closer (which it has done in several states) 31% is a really low starting point for Trump.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: RNC member: The party will decide the nominee, not the voters on: March 16, 2016, 05:30:14 pm
The key here is whether this guy is speaking for himself, or if this is a broad sentiment among RNC members. If it's the latter, Trump is in deeper trouble than people think.

Actually I'd be the GOP that would be in deeper trouble than people think if that happens. No way is Trump going to lay down and just accept having the victory snatched from his tiny hands. He'd run a third-party/write-in campaign drawing away all his cheated supporters from the Republican nominee, and the Republican establishment cheating the voters out of their most popular choice would not only kill every chance of carrying Congress this year but also plant a seed of hate and distrust between the party and their grassroots that wouldn't heal for a generation.

Sanders will be very gracious when he eventually drops-out, he's a very classy man.

A very large portion of his supporters though... not so much.

So in other words, no one who will be approved.

Obama could nominate Ted Cruz and the GOP Senate still wouldn't approve him.

Cool story bro.
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Republican Puerto Rico Primary results thread (polls close @2pm ET?) on: March 06, 2016, 01:39:33 pm
Rubio must win. If Rubio can't win here, he should obviously drop out, go home, and move back in with mommy because there'd literally be a zero chance of a political future for him. Tongue
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Mexico will under no circumstances pay for Trump's wall on: March 04, 2016, 06:15:49 am
If TRUMP is elected president, I would imagine Mexico would be more than happy to pay for a wall to protect themselves from the North American crazies. Wink
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sanderistas pissed at Warren for not endorsing. on: March 04, 2016, 06:01:23 am
I've been a supporter of Sanders since long before his presidential run. It's kind of sad how he's developed a following from such annoying, unpleasant people.

Indeed, a good man like Sanders doesn't deserve the vicious cult that a large part of his followers contain.
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: The Emperor(Trump) strikes back. on: March 03, 2016, 03:50:37 pm
I'm tired of Trump winning already.
Aren't we all.

No one is probably more tired of it than the Republican establishment though. Wink
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: I still support Sanders. on: March 03, 2016, 03:21:07 am
Either Cenk is a lot dumber than I thought, or he's being deliberately obtuse for the sake of ratings. 

I've stopped listening to TYT when it comes to the Democratic primary. They're all so deep into their hackery for Sanders that they've surrendered all sense of objectivity and actual analys of the race in favour of blatant propaganda for their candidate.

They're still excellent when it comes to Republican race where I feel that Cenk was one of few pundits who really understands what is going on.

"Progressive" Canadian is one step from accusing "those damn niggas" for stealing the nomination from Sanders.

It's not racist if those black people don't know their own good while Progressive Canadian obviously does know that Sanders would be best for them.

MSNBC has called Virginia too.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who will win on Super Tuesday? (R) on: February 24, 2016, 07:53:39 pm
Rubio will win by coming in either second or third in every state and thus continue on his inevitable path to be the one who finally beats Trump by never actually beating Trump.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trumps VP? on: February 24, 2016, 10:18:00 am
I think the shrewdest choice he could make would be to pick Megyn Kelly. Now I know that sounds crazy, but think about it... He could spin it as picking one of few people who's not been afraid to stand up to him, that he is a person who wants people who dare to disagree with him (his supporters would eat that up) while at the same time getting a young conservative woman who, in difference to the former female GOP nominee, is agreed to be very intelligent. She could then act as a shield against the inevitable sexism charges that Hillary would throw against him during the campaign. And the pick would be such a surprise the media wouldn't stop talking about it for an entire week, which even by TRUMP standards would be impressive.

I*m afraid it's too brilliant to actually happen though. (And Kelly probably wouldn't give up her job just for a small chance to be VP)
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Trump is elected President, will he take action against Mormons? on: February 24, 2016, 09:28:32 am
TRUMP has a great relationship with the mormons. They love him. The problem is that their leaders are to smart while we have stupid leaders.

1 in 5 Nevadans born in California is amazing.

Californians have colonized the entire West for the past couple decades, and the trend is only beginning to slow as their economy improves.  Some of my best friends in high school were Californian economic refugees.

14% of Oregon residents were born in California.
8% of Washington residents were born in California.
9% of Arizona residents were born in California.
6% of Colorado residents were born in California
8% of Utah residents were born in California
12% of Idaho residents were born in California
7% of Alaska residents were born in California

That's 64% of California born living in other Western States. That's a huge number.

And who are Ron and Hermione?

Jeb! was obviously Ron. Neville

I'd say Megyn Kelly as the smart woman who won't back down to patriarchy Lord Voldemort is Hermione
 
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is SC a must-win for Cruz? on: February 12, 2016, 05:43:18 pm
It's not must win in the sense he'll drop out if he loses. But if he can't win SC then it's hard to see how we wins the nomination. TRUMP is really the only candidate that can afford to lose here, IMO, and still have a realistic chance at the nomination.

So the race will be essentially over after the SC votes are counted, so says Lief. Whatever.

Yes, if we look at historic GOP races, the candidate that first won their second state always won the nomination and 2012 and 1976 were the only primaries where the winner in SC wasn't the eventual nominee. SC is the bellwether of the Republican presidential primaries.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump will 'probably sue' Iowa over caucus results on: February 03, 2016, 07:09:29 pm
It is all perfectly logical if the objective is to hurt the Republican Party and have Hillary Clinton elected president.

That has been my wild conspiracy theory throughout, that Trumps candidacy is all a ploy to help his old buddies the Clintons.
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will any of the following drop out BEFORE New Hampshire? on: February 03, 2016, 04:05:04 am
Why hasn't Santorum already dropped out? His only chance was to make a repeat of 2012 and pull an upset in Iowa, but he barely got more than half the votes Huckabee mustered. Heck he was beaten by Kasich, who didn't even compete in Iowa. Dude needs to go.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is Donald Trump finished? on: February 02, 2016, 10:27:45 am
It all depends on NH. After Rubio's result yesterday I could see him shoring up the establishment vote and surging  to a victory there. In that case, Trump should be done. If the Donald wins though he'll probably take SC as well and then he'll be one of three strong candidates going into Super Tuesday.
