Endorsed.

Would Bush have passed the Health Care Bill?

No doubt. Bush loved helping to further enrich his corporate buddies just as much as Obama does.
Yeah, all of his "corporate buddies" at the health insurance companies definitely supported the health care bill Roll Eyes

Indeed.  They ran ads in support of it.

How about we have 2 Populares supporters, 2 RPP supporters, and 2 JCP supporters all submit 2 questions - one for their own candidate and one for an opposing party's candidate.  The questions would then be presented to the candidates in a random order.  Each candidate would be allowed a 400 word opening statement and a 400 word closing statement.  Answers to the questions would have a maximum length of 250 words, to which the other candidates could offer 100 word rebuttals.  Sound fair?

I don't both admire and dislike people. That doesn't make any sense.

I think he means politicians you both admire personally and dislike politically.

Or vice versa.

7156  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you believe that the Laffer Curve exists? (If so, what rates create balance?) on: October 03, 2010, 05:18:39 pm
The curve isn't static - since economic growth increases with lower tax rates, the tax rate which provides the maximum revenue approaches zero the longer the time period is that you're looking at.  My educated guess is that the function of the (flat) income tax rate that provides the maximum revenue is something along the lines of .5(t^-0.3) where t is in years.

If the Republicans take the Senate: strengthen
If they don't: weaken
7158  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you believe that the Laffer Curve exists? on: October 03, 2010, 04:14:20 pm
Yes, because it's common sense.  It is not possible that there is not a Laffer Curve.
7159  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which senator was the most conservative? on: October 03, 2010, 03:36:32 pm
And Leon Trotsky, whose followers invented the idea, rather recently, that it is in any way conservative to have an interventionist foreign policy.

So Trotskyites are neo-cons? That takes the cake for most ridiculous thing I've read today.

And it's completely true.

The lack of citations in that article is telling.

Do tell me, however, what ideas in Trotskyism carried over into modern neo-conservatism?

Perhaps Irving Kristol himself is a better source.

And the idea that carries over into neoconservatism is that there needs to be permanent worldwide revolution to be accomplished by invading foreign countries.

7162  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which senator was the most conservative? on: October 03, 2010, 03:10:51 pm
No, I'm saying that interventionism is not and has never been the conservative position.
7163  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What % of the following support gay marriage? on: October 03, 2010, 03:07:54 pm
South Park should have a significantly larger portion of its viewers support gay marriage for the simple fact that Family Guy appears on FOX network, whose viewership is probably representative of America at large, although possibly slightly lower-income.  Family Guy probably skews slightly younger and more liberal in its audience than the network average, but not too much.  South Park appears on Comedy Central, whose viewership is much younger and more liberal than America at large, and its audience is probably younger and more liberal/libertarian still.
7164  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which senator was the most conservative? on: October 03, 2010, 02:57:43 pm
Let's see...Goldwater was a social liberal, Taft a foreign-policy liberal.

Obviously Helms was the most conservative.

LOLOLOLOLOL.

Both Taft and Goldwater would be now labeled as "RINOs", and probably targeted by tea party nutjobs.

Uhh . . . they're well to the right of anyone in the current Republican Senate caucus.
7168  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Barnes for Senate - Platform Part One on: October 03, 2010, 11:11:15 am
Is there going to be a debate between you and wormyguy?

Well, I'd certainly be up for one. Someone does actually have to conduct one though, dear Libby. Grin

I am willing to do as many debates as you want, anytime, anywhere.
7169  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Republicans block bill to keep jobs from going overseas. on: October 03, 2010, 10:42:23 am
Those 45 Senators who voted to filibuster this should have their jobs offshored.

Anyone who thinks this bill is a good idea should be deported.

I thought you were a libertarian?

He is a Republican.

I am not and do not plan to ever be a Republican.

Given your choice in candidates and what you said on that party thread it's an easy mistake.
I've only endorsed for Senate Libertarians, Constitutionalists, libertarian-oriented Republicans, and Republicans in races with only a Republican and a Democrat (and left-wing third parties).



My gubernatorial endorsements are all Republican except for Colorado because only economic policy matters at the state level.

A great meeting of the minds.
7175  General Discussion / History / Re: The most influental U.S. presidential loser of the 20th Century? on: October 02, 2010, 10:52:07 pm
Hoover.

How was Hoover at all influential after 1932? The Republican Party even abandoned his conservative foreign policy and adopted FDR's internationalism. Robert Taft could not once get nominated.

Hoover managed to singlehandedly ruin America, and the effects of his ruination continue to be felt today.
