1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Which of these states are more similar regarding politics and election results? on: March 26, 2015, 11:17:04 pm
Hmm, surprised that no one picks AZ and SC. They are both 55-45 states, both are "Southern" in some way (AZ is way more "Southern" than "Western"), they both are quite inelastic, both have a significant minority population, both are quite conservative, ...

Huh? What on earth are you talking about? Elaborate.

Happy birthday you commie bastards! Grin

(Yes, I know Tony isn't actually communist, but I'm a Republican, so anyone to the left of Ronald Reagan is a communist to me... Wink)

Your match is -- Franklin D. Roosevelt

Franklin D. Roosevelt was born to a wealthy family in New York. Throughout life he was rarely anything if not impeccably well-dressed. He was persuasive and agreeable. He also could be a bit of a shapeshifter, particularly in his personal encounters. More than one person left a conversation believing that Roosevelt agreed with them, only to discover the opposite later in time. His working pace was fairly relaxed for a President. He had a warm and affable quality in his personal interactions that many remembered fondly. He tended to focus on the big-picture of things, rather than the details.

You are also similar to George H.W. Bush.
George H.W. Bush was the son of a Senator and grew up in Connecticut. In many ways he had a very moderate, temperate personality. He was neither particularly loud or quiet. Neither particularly friendly or aloof. He did have a strong sense of duty, joining the Navy on his 18th birthday during World War II. Although he could be a bit emotional at times, he was very stable on the average. He was intelligent but in a practical sort of way. His first great successes in life were in the oil business. No real scandals emerged during his four year term in office.

You are also similar to John F. Kennedy.
John F. Kennedy grew up in a very wealthy Massachusetts family. He had a broad mind and was particularly well-studied in political science and foreign relations. He read and traveled widely as a youth, including to places like Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. He was very charming when he wanted to be, but also had a reserved side to him. In general he seemed to be emotionally stable and conscientious, and rarely lost his temper. In World War II he displayed genuine heroism and resolve after his PT-boat was destroyed in the Pacific. He was a serial adulterer but seems to have been a fairly clean politician. He is the only President to have won a Pulitzer Prize.

You are least similar to Richard Nixon.
Richard Nixon grew up in near poverty in rural California, laboring in a strict household. He disliked social occasions and could often be quite awkward, even in small groups. Nor did he go out of his way to please people. He was shrewd rather than bookish. He was a fantastic poker player and political strategist. Yet he was also prone to distrust and outright paranoia. It was unusual for him to forgive or overlook those who had slighted him in some way. His presidency is obviously noteworthy for the Watergate scandal it produced. He wrote extensively on foreign policy in his later life.

Extremely necessary poster. Shoots down a lot of trite and hackish simplifications of history.

11  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What ideological labels would you use to describe your politics? on: March 23, 2015, 07:38:22 pm
I could get complicated and specific with it, but really the simplest way I could think of describing it is secular conservatism. Basically just American style conservatism without the religious right elements when it comes down to it.

Pyongyang (Western woman + not a fan of extreme climate)

I would say Pyongyang is more extreme, at least in terms of seasonal changes. Wink

CA Republicans are the most right-wing in the country, so of course they'd do something extreme, but this is just terrible. I doubt a Homocaust will get any votes outside of extremists.

Also, this makes me question what CA would be like if the parties were nearly the same like in Rhode Island.

They are?

Are we talking overall, or in specific dimensions? Because I can think of half a dozen posters who are more free market than Thomas.

Yeah, this where measuring things like this becomes an issue. I mean, who is further to the right, a fascist or an anarcho-capitalist?

Nevada, although I would consider all of them pretty swingy states.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Most Conservative and Liberal Presidents since 1964 on: March 21, 2015, 07:02:20 pm
1. Ronald Reagan
2. George W Bush
3. George HW Bush
4. Richard Nixon
5. Gerald Ford
6. Bill Clinton
7. Jimmy Carter
8. Barack Obama
9. Lyndon B Johnson

Or something like that.

Assuming he wins the elections, yes. But it's wouldn't be one of his safe states.
