This one, perhaps?



If you have something in particular in mind, I could make a map and a poster to your specifications...

Ron Paul won a town in Maine with write-in votes? That's awesome.

That is awesome, Maine was one of the most pro-Paul states during the 2012 Republican Primaries. I wonder if a few families (assuming it is that small) got together and decided to all write-in him to make it show on a precinct map like this. Or maybe a group of libertarians got together to live in rural Maine. Who knows?

I'm not interested in buying it, but I am interested in looking at the maps, its truly beautiful! Thank you Homelycooking Smiley

You're welcome! The township in question is Concord Township (it's a municipality map, not a precinct map), where Ron Paul received 100% of the three votes cast. Ron Paul's write-in vote was negligible elsewhere in the state. Some local reporter should head out there and find out a little more about this peculiar result.

Anyone else interested? I can bring down the price somewhat if enough people express their interest.

I think that a higher priority should be to allow for the popular election of the President.

WrathoftheGods would not be Constitutionally permitted to serve as Senator if elected due to the requirement that his user account be at least 60 days old. I am not aware, however, of any law that prohibits his name from being placed on the ballot in spite of this.

Even if they don't, I still mail in my contribution. The Postal Service can use the extra first-class mail volume, and I don't mind paying the extra $0.49 for the privilege of feeling like a cleverdick for a little while.

Whenever I receive solicitations by mail from any political party, I return their self-addressed envelopes with an enclosed contribution of $0.02.

Ron Paul won a town in Maine with write-in votes? That's awesome.

It's not really a town - it's technically an unorganized township. You can probably count the population of Concord Twp on both hands.

But what's that county in NW Connecticut that's stripped? Did that one tie or was there no majority or what?

Barkhamsted - incidentally, it's the only place so named in the world.

I'd pay you 30$ if you could do a 1999 Austrian federal election map/poster by municipality (ca. 2400 cities).

I'll send you a PM.

I've been thinking about having some large, full-color prints made of one or two of my maps and offering them to whomever would like a copy. These are the two I was thinking of:




Unfortunately, the quotes I've been getting for having these copies made at a decent size have indicated that I would be paying about $15-20 per. So, if any of you would be willing to pay $20 for a 36" x 30" rendering of France 2002 or a 36" x 24" of the Northeast US 2012, I'll pay for whatever shipping costs remain. I'll even sign each copy so that it becomes a "limited edition collectors' item"! Grin

Reply here or send me a PM if you're interested.

Also shows how the Lake Eire coastline is much more Democratic than the Lake Ontario coastline.

It's remarkable that the transportation geography of the 19th Century has such a strong effect on 21st Century voting patterns. The obstacle presented to trade by Niagara Falls and its diversion through the Erie Canal obviated the need for a major port on Lake Ontario in New York - consequently, there aren't any major US cities located on the lake.

It's amazing how closely clustered the Democratic votes in Ohio and Pennsylvania are, especially in light of the fact they both went Democratic in 2012.

The hydrologic watershed in which that industrial catchment is located is, as you can see, divided almost evenly between the two states. Geography is destiny!

Six months in the making. It's quite the portrait of France's great crisis of electoral pluralism.

Trombone, euphonium, tuba. I own a beautiful 1967 Besson euphonium on which I would practice every day if I could. I very nearly decided to go to a conservatory for a music performance degree instead of one in political science, and often regret that I didn't.

How would a political party win your vote in a positive sense other than by appealing to you specifically as a social democrat?

Do you think that ideological politics is on the decline in Europe, or specifically in France and Italy? In particular, what do you understand to be the reasons for the long-term decline of avowedly Socialist parties and candidates?

How well has your community recovered from the Sandy Hook tragedy? Did it change people's views about gun ownership or make them, in some way, more religious or politically or socially active? How did coping with that great loss affect your neighbors and their relationships with one another?

What do you remember from your time spent living in Saudi Arabia? What was your impression of of the culture, the segments of society to which you were exposed, the weather, the geography, the monarchy, the religious milieu?
