Just to let you know, Justin, parties that are started by just one person on the forum usually do not get any additional members- examples are the Independent Labor party and the Manifest Destiny party.  Given your reasons for forming a party are mostly just sour grapes, I don't expect you to get much if any response.  Parties that are successful here are generally cooked up by several people behind the scenes before they are announced- examples are the UAC and AFIP.

Has the Governor declared candidacy in the Senate race?  If he did, I must have missed that.

This just needs one more yea to pass....

Mike Z?  Nation?  Demrepdan?

I did not necessarily suggest banning him- we don't really have the power to do that anyways; only Dave can do that.  I suggested supreme court action, I did not say what the punishment for his crimes should be.
4280  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Democratic Party Endorsements for Senate on: August 11, 2004, 06:51:23 pm
I had intended to wait until after the filing deadline to announce these.  But, since other parties are announcing endorsements, and ours are not likely to change, the Democratic Party proudly endorses the following candidates for Senate:

District 1- Handzus26 (IP-PA)
District 2A- Akno21 (D-MD)
District 2B- Umengus (D-VT)
District 3- Texasgurl (D-WI)
District 4- Harry (IP-MS)
District 5- PlatypeanArchcow (UL-CA)

Don't you Republicans have a private forum where you should be discussing this?
Have the Democrats even discussed it?

Yes we have actually, and the Democrats do plan on endorsing you.  I thought you knew that.  Smiley

Oh, if my vote matters at all, I vote yes.

I think he has simply given up any attempt of being taken seriously.

An excellent point, NewFederalist.  Regardless of the outcome of this election, American government will continue to function as it always has, the world will not end.
4287  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:Bill to outlaw the UAC on: August 11, 2004, 08:05:23 am
57opinions has no power to introduce bills.  I suggest this be ignored.  I have reported his post to moderator, not that that will do any good, but I do think statements of a threatening nature are inappropriate here.

Actually, I would strongly suggest that a UAC member bring supreme court action against 57opinions, for making threats and engaging in trollish behaviour.  I thought about doing this myself, but I think the plaintiff ought to be someone he has actually threatened.

RReagan4EVER


NixonNow, you have really gone off the deep end.  Exactly who do you think will vote for you?

If Bush loses in November, and Hutchinson runs for Texas Governor in '06, do you think Bush would run for the Senate seat?
4290  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:The Combined Home State Voting Reform Amendment on: August 10, 2004, 10:39:08 am
Why is this an amendment instead of just a bill?

Edit: never mind, I think I know the answer.  Could we pass this before the election?  Come on senators, this was proposed over a month ago now.

4292  General Politics / Political Debate / Re:Puerto Rico? on: August 10, 2004, 10:04:58 am
The Democratic Party controlling PR's congressional delegation is not a sure thing.  When Alaska and Hawaii were admitted, it was widely believed that Alaska would be totally Democrat, and Hawaii would be totally Republican.  Of course, its the other way around.

No territory applying for statehood has ever been denied it because of the political party makeup of its population.  The closest we ever came to that resulted in the Missouri Compromise, which said that whenever a slave state was admitted, a free state also had to be admitted, and vice versa.  Denying statehood to PR (if they applied for it) because of Republican fears of more Democrats in congress, would make the Republicans look really bad, I think.  There might be some resistance, but I don't think it would last long.
4293  General Discussion / History / Re:Official Home States? on: August 10, 2004, 08:52:19 am
Hmmmm...

The book I have lists California as the home state dor Nixon in all five elections he was a candidate in.  Ike is listed in New York for both of his elections.

I don't see how anyone could get elected President, and then change home state.  How could Nixon be from New York in 68 but not in 72???
4294  General Politics / Political Debate / Re:Puerto Rico? on: August 10, 2004, 08:02:34 am
If they would become a state, yes.  As long as the people there keep opposing statehood, no.  Its all or nothing.  You can't have some of the benefits of statehood without the responsibilities of statehood.
4295  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re:Who will run in '08-Democrats on: August 10, 2004, 07:45:14 am
Gore will never run again.

Dean and/or Kucinich may run, but will never get nominated.

Obama- 2012, maybe, at the earliest.

If Kerry loses this time, I say it will between Hillary and John Edwards for the Democrat nomination in 08.  Hard to say which one would get the nomination, I think it would be a real battle.

4296  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Im Changeing my Senate Plans. on: August 09, 2004, 07:28:38 pm
Leadership of the Republican Party- you have not much time to act on this, if you are going to.  It needs to be done before the filing deadline, which is this Friday.
4297  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re:Region Redrawing Act on: August 09, 2004, 07:24:34 pm
The actual map is not in the constitution.  I quoted what the constitution says about regions in an earlier post.

sigh...Okay then, I'll post a current list in my state of the elections thread.
4300  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re:Im Changeing my Senate Plans. on: August 09, 2004, 06:36:38 pm
57opinions is also in that race.  Will the Republicans have to hold a primary?
