1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Jeb Bush to Endorse Gary Johnson Next Week? on: July 22, 2016, 05:40:21 pm
Love it, still will vote for Hillary because he won't win and it'll help ensure that Trump loses.

If Trump loses, we all lose.


If Trump loses and you lose it's your own fault, not Clinton's.

This probably means Trump +6 or +7 statewide. Who could be voting for Trump and against Arpaio, I wonder. Maybe Clinton has a lot of room to grow here

People who don't like to vote for criminals (like me lol). Arpaio is scum. He shall be dealt a crushing defeat.
Arpaio is a fantastic scheriff who is an enemy of criminals and gives them the tent city they deserve.  Not sure why you think he is a crook.

Well he has cost the county well over $100 million in lawsuits and settlements. Has been charged with unconstitutional jail conditions, not investigating rape cases and has violated election laws to name a few.

If you look at the elections Arpaio keeps winning but his percentage keeps going down each election. He'll lose one of these times.

I fully expect all three to pull it out, three really good Republican Senators.

I would go all out on Trump=voting for a rapist part. Get Trump's ex wife and business associate to break their gag orders and find anyone else who Trump has raped (probably wouldn't be that hard to find them) and make TV and radio adds and get them out there circulating having people tell their story about how Trump raped them and is a sociopath.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Luntz to delegates: GOP has 'lost' the millennial generation on: July 21, 2016, 12:50:17 pm
It's always amusing to read generalizations about millennials from baby boomers when they're the most entitled generation that sucks the most government benefits. Many in the generation have spent and lived far outside their income and are getting to the point where they can't sustain it any more as they begin to retire. No financial savings tucked away, will be almost completely reliant on social security and other benefits and sucks but tax writeoffs and credits too.

AMEN! Boomers: the generation that was in power during the biggest recession since the Great Depression, started false wars, divided the country to sustain a culture war, cut their own taxes dramatically, shredded the benefits they enjoyed, allowed 9/11 to happen, and blame everyone else for everything they created!

Heaven forbid millenials feel entitled to having: a job that pays a living wage, equal treatment under the law, or stable economic and global affairs!

They don't want people to make more money when their minimum wage back then while nothing would be very high today so there's really no compare. I'll agree that the minimum wage should be raised, not as much as people want it to be. Someone working at a fast food place should by no means make $15 an hour for completely unskilled labor. They need to cut their own expenses (get rid of the smart phone, cable TV, DVR, new laptop, new car).

I saw someone mention about the rich, well the upper middle class and the rich and many business owners will take advantage of credits and write-offs. From being an underwriter people really are making $70-100+ a year but paying nothing in taxes (business wise) due to writing everything off and claiming less than $15k of income or losses.

So if you don't require ID then how does it work?

In Sweden all citizens above 18 get a mail with their "vote card" and you bring that to the booth on polling day (that's what I recall at least).

Not sure about other states but before the ID law you walked in said you were so and so and verify your address, signed the voting book and voted. It almost never happened but all you really had to do was get to the polling place before someone else and claim to be them and you'd be good.'

There's nothing wrong with ID laws. There should just be a way that everyone who doesn't have one can get a free voting photo ID.

Here's the scene


Is "OVER THE TOP!" the tagline of this convention?  Legit question; I haven't been watching because I value my IQ.

It's a tradition to show that banner when the nominee crosses 1237 in the roll call. The same banner, with different coloring, was used for Romney.

Your efforts to troll me are as gray and lifeless as your affected persona's sense of humor.

Well, everyone I know who almost went to the other side are usually like that when they survive, so should it really be a surprise you're like that?
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Donald J. Trump is officially the GOP nominee for president. on: July 19, 2016, 09:29:33 pm
The party realizes that the fastest way to end this is for Trump to lose in about 3 months. They'll nominate him but they won't fund him and nobody will campaign with him. Once he loses the party elite will unload on him and the people who supported him and take the party back.

I'm going to do something I never thought I would, vote for Clinton because Trump is like a cancer and every action needs to be taken to get rid of it.

Hopefully this convention helps Americans realize the stakes of this election. This party is unhinged.

And your party is about to nominate a criminal

And my party is about to nominate a criminal and a rapist who should be deep in prison for decades already.

I wish these #NeverTrumpers cared when Ron Paul was screwed over in Tampa by the Reince.

Ron Paul did like to steal delegates he didn't really win.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: A map I think everybody should look at on: July 14, 2016, 06:22:43 am
Something's off about the Urban/rural county split.  They claim that all counties with greater than 50,000 population are 'urban', but they mark a county in my area that has less than 10,000 people as urban.

I hate that the divide has always been Urban/Rural, where suburban counties are considered urban when they are far from urban.

Some statewide tidbits from the new Marquette poll:

Should marijuana be legalized and regulated like alcohol? (Prior poll with a similar question was September 2014)

Yes 59% (+13)
No 39% (-12)

Scott Walker's approval rating:

38% approve (-1)
58% disapprove (+1)

Walker's approvals have yet to rebound since his presidential run.

Paul Ryan's favorability rating:

48% favorable (-1)
33% unfavorable (+1)

President Obama's approval rating:

51% approval (+/-0)
45% disapproval (+2)

I think it is increasingly likely walker doesn't run again. Good rec marijuana numbers, a advisory referendum on it would be fun.

2018 with Hillary as President in the midterms where Dem turnout will be way down. If he runs it's likely hard for him to lose.

I generally agree with this, but I think he would need to get is approvals back up to the mid-high 40's.

There are a lot of disaffected conservatives with Walker right now, the thing is they'll never vote for who the Dems put up.

Whether this rape is true it's basically confirmed that he raped his ex wife and a former business partners wife. Settled both of them so it's not hard to believe he did it this time or many more. Disgusting filth that man.

24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sanders booed by house democrats on: July 07, 2016, 09:06:06 am

Bernie is not a Democrat. Who set him up as the savior of that party? And why are his standards the ones that should be used? The guy has gall.

Sanders has always caucused with the Democrats, he's been given committee assignments and he's also been responsible for giving Democrats a majority in the past. Not to mention he's now an official member of the Democratic Party and he'll be running as one for the remainder of his political career.

And yet he doesn't actually care about the party in any way. He refuses to fundraise for downballot candidates and refuses to help the Democrats get young voters more active and still engaged. His "movement" is basically dead outside of a few nutters who won't support Democrats anyways and he is in danger of letting the other people who got active drift away for another 4 years.

Funny show. Though I know it'll be voted as a bad show due to it being the "cool thing" to feel. People who hate it still watch it and go and complain and ask for it to be canceled. Pretty sad obsession for people to have.
