Biggest problem for GOP is that Walker is a bad fit for Florida and Jeb is an even worse fit for Ohio. None of them are a good fit for Virginia.

Yes. GOP has candidates that can flip a certain swing state, but none that can flip multiple.

Aren't proclaimed libertarians like yourself supposed to care about people getting screwed by laws?

Don't you think you should be able to understand argument in metaphor or symbol, if you're going to present yourself as competent for discussion?

Good, one of the stupidest non-issues that was attempted to be made an issue ever.

no it is not an nonissue.

You're right. It is a non-issue.

"Give Hillary a chance" sounds like an endorsement.  Game over.

If progressives really wanted Elizabeth Warren to change Washington, they should start a vocal campaign to demand Warren be elected Minority Leader.

But most of these people are too naive to realize how important that would really be.

You'd think the last 4 years of Speaker Boehner would've taught the left that yes, Congress Matters.

And really, political parties do as well. I have no idea why both parties insist on having machine dealers like Pelosi, Reid, Boehner, and McConnell lead them. It's why the midterms are so disengaged. They should be treated like Prime Minister candidates.

Democrats in 2014/2010 and Republicans in 2006 certainly would have done better if nationally they had run a clear ________ for Speaker of the House national campaign to get the disengaged base out to vote.

Corporate taxes should be cut to nil. After all, a corporation is merely a bundle of contracts. Taxes are ultimately borne by the shareholder and consumer. The tax system should reflect that.

It's a very unpopulist sell, unfortunately. I don't even think Republicans could pull it off with their base.

I don't live in your universe. Where I'm from, curing the disease is vastly superior to treating the symptoms.

Google informs me that there is a [redacted] in OKC. Have they ever been to that location? Even just out of curiousity now that you work for the company?

He trained at the other Tulsa location this month. I doubt he ever went to the OKC one. He's never even checked out the Asian Supermarket next to his apartment complex.

Marco Rubio is a pointless candidacy with no angle. At best he'll be the 2nd choice to Walker, Cruz, and Bush supporters but the 1st choice to nobody.

In liberal America, everyone is a victim except for intentionally slain unborn children.

For the record, I'm pro-choice, but liberals flaunt their hypocrisy shamelessly, and someone should point it out.....for their own good.

This is more like charging the person who discovers a suicide with murder just to be safe.

I'm not particularly interested in this issue, as unfortunate as it may be. I'm interested in undermining the self-serving confirmation bias that leads to nonsensical vitriol.

People get screwed by laws all the time. If you think a preponderance of the blame can be assigned to one political party or ideology, you're smoking something.

Noah does better voice impressions than Stewart, so there's that.

I'm sure he'll be shoehorned into more segments over the next year so people warm up to him more.

Are Papa and Mama going to the grand opening?

No.  They don't want to make the drive all the way from Eastern Oklahoma County to Owasso.  That'd be a 2 hour drive and plus they don't like large crowds.

Let's be honest, Bushie.  They don't want to be surrounded by all these liberal health food fairies lest they might catch the gay. 

Nah. Give them credit.

It's likely the distance. Plus, Sprouts isn't a large enough chain to earn the Brown family trust just yet.

I believe in Monetarism, so I guess I am fiscally conservative but economically liberal.

In fact, when was the last time she debated a Republican... 2006?

The House Benghazi show trial.

Why anybody would want to be Governor of Illinois is beyond me.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How will Hillary perform in the debates? on: March 31, 2015, 10:53:17 am
Judging by these completely unfounded Palinesque expectations ITT, she will have the greatest debate performances in American political history.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who is the strongest GOP candidate against Hillary? on: March 31, 2015, 10:52:29 am
Paul might able to win some young swing voters, but at the same time he'd probably lose the same amount of older voters to Clinton.

I'll go with Walker. It doesn't really matter to me. None of them are going to win. A loss is a loss.

My state's Democratic Party sucks ass and the Republican Party here sucks significantly less ass.
24  General Politics / Economics / Re: How to Increase Corporate Tax Revenue? on: March 31, 2015, 10:40:43 am
Yes, corporate tax is a waste of time. We are much better off with low corporate tax rates and higher personal income tax rates, incentivizing executives to invest profit in their companies rather than their bonuses.
