Those of you calling for an Irish Referendum don't know what you're asking for.  There will be death, and lots of it.  It's not something that most of the Northern Irish wish to revisit right now.  Leave it alone.

They'll want their freedom from England and Wales now though. If Scotland goes they'll be next, so blame the ignorant that voted for Brexit for anything that happens.

Everyone cheering for economic destruction is hilarious utterly depressing.

Pound is the lowest it's been since 1985.


It will be great for tourism.

You realize they will not be able to afford to buy our stuff anymore right?

You do realize that the Pound is still stronger than the Dollar, right?  They'll be ok.

Framed. F in principles of Macro.

Well, good thing you don't have to be an economist to vote in the referendum!  It's about what the people want, not what the elites want.  Sorry the world doesn't bend to your will.

Oh, you must've been one of those kids who refused to wear his retainer or rubber bands during his braces phase, because you didn't want to, but once your teeth started shifting you started complaining again.

But the dentist was an "elitist" for going to school and knowing what he is actually talking about

Judging by your logic, you should shutup and never talk to me about politics again.  I have a political science degree!  I am the elite, I know what I'm talking about!

Sounds like you're the cheerleader groupie hanging around the high school QB. The elite is paying you to keep them elite.

Don't worry, the elites will be fine no matter what happens. The poor and the middle class won't be, but they got what they want so it's all good. They just need to get poorer and they'll "feel the freedoms flowing through them" and be ok.

This result is a reason to rejoice for all freedom loving people.

Yeah, 4 years of continued austerity, a stagnant economy at best, continued cuts to social services, and a weakened currency are really something to rejoice about as long as you get to say f_ck you to immigrants.


I wonder who the Leave voters will blame in several years when things don't get much better.

A small amount of economic pain is a small price to pay for the freedom of a nation.  I guess you would have been arguing for King George III in 1776.

Yeah, you tell that you all the poor and old people who are basically done and won't ever recover. More people will join them, but you can tell them they're free!

Freely voted to tie their own noose. Well hopefully all the people that voted don't take it all back shortly as they loose badly economically.

So are all the poor and old Englishman that are voting to leave able to survive this economic downturn that's surely to come?

I like Abele, voted for him back in April. Socially liberal and fiscally moderate to conservative. Willing to work with anyone to get the job done. Big advocate of jobs and mental health. Has a strong backing and opposition from different labor unions and members of the black community.

Would give Walker a strong run and likely win if he could get the Dem nomination. Likely wouldn't be able to do it because he's a moderate and has strong opponents. He won in April by landsliding the suburbs and splitting Milwaukee (was 50/50 but he had a slight vote lead). Only lost Shorewood 55-45 (most liberal suburb).

I also don't think he's going to run though but I want him too, but again probably couldn't get the Dem nomination.

Is there a person ideologically close to or a good ally of Feingold who might run on a ticket with Abele? For instance, Chris Larson endorsed Feingold pretty quickly IIRC.

While anything is possible Larson's whole campaign was centered round trying to make people believe that Abele was an evil Republican who didn't care about anyone but himself and the rich.

"Why would we run Chris Abele when Mary Burke will win over woman and beat him again?"

Again? He never before.

Democrats best choice would probably be state senator Schilling from LaCrosse. No idea if she'll run though.

I was being ironic.

Also, since you're a Republican from Wisconsin, what's your opinion of Abele?

All four amendments fail.

So now Democrats have Trump, SCOTUS obstruction, and overwhelmingly supported gun measures to run on.  Awesome.

And probably the only one that people would vote differently than normal about no matter what the politician is saying is Trump.

Johnson is done.

Talk radio has assured the Republicans that Johnson is safe. They don't think he'll lose because they're "Democratic polls". It's so stupid, too bad we have to have either. Awful hypocrites and bad men.

He says it's a "fake poll that shows him statistically tied". So it's a fake poll, which he probably means all polls are fake because he's Trump and doesn't accept reality.

Gov. Scott Walker approval rating: Among all those polled, 39% approve of how he is handling his job, 57% disapprove. #mulawpoll

Lol

I bet he'll still be re-elected. Sad #jaded
The Democrats will find the worst possible candidate to put up against him.

They'll try and run say Larson or a Burke clone or milquetoast Barca when they have plenty of solid candidates on the bench.

Bad map. So much wrong here i am speechless. NH for one is a solid R state, and Dems will flip Utah (Mormons).

lol! NH is solid D and Utah will be a lot closer but I doubt it will flip. Too many people will vote for the R and not on common sense.

Will vote for Clinton unless WI is super safe come the election, then I might vote Darrell Castle, but even then probably not.

I do feel dirty though, I hate Clinton but that hate is much less than the hate for Trump who can't become President.

19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Will Clinton Win 90% or Greater in DC? on: June 08, 2016, 10:46:40 am
So, does she have a shot to get 90% or more on the 14th in DC?

America is ready for social democracy. It was actually ready back in 2008. Because there's such a need for it, because America is crying out for it, Bernie did well. He did well despite his horrible campaign performance.

He should have gone harder after Clinton. He should have campaigned harder in Iowa. He should have taken Secret Service protection from the very start, so those dumb BLM protesters never could have gotten on stage.

I think the results show that's not true. 45% voted for Sanders but a lot of those votes are against Clinton, add in that a lot of the Bernie Or Bust bros are seriously thinking about Trump shows that the message isn't really resonating that well.

Any tyt update? I can't watch now.

Cenk just said Hillary won the nomination and it wasn't a rigged conspiracy in a smoke filled room but the media is biased, some dude with a horrible beard said Sanders people aren't going to continue their newfound participation in politics unless the Democrats start running genuinely progressive candidates across the board - many are struggling with student loan debt....

Probably would help if they stopped giving $50-100+ a week to a dying campaign.

Clinton up 51.5-43.1% in Montana with 37% now in.

I'm confused. 99% in for SD and Hillary up 3 points, but they haven't called it?

Maybe they forgot about it.

11% in for that last county which I don't feel like typing up, Clinton up 12 votes to 5! lol

San Diego, Fresno and Oakland (Merin) absolutely slapping Sanders right now.

Also pretty happy that Sanders is keeping New Mexico respectable.

Doing worse than Obama though so Clinton improved.
