Nice guy, HP. Wink

Who is the most secular/least authoritarian?

Anyone who's secular is going to be more authoritarian. Since less government means letting tribesmen do whatever they want (rule by religious law).

Ugh, right, the Middle East. I guess I would end up picking the secular authoritarians over theocratic rule.

Nope.

That's what I'm planning on doing.

"Passionate, yet civil discussion" died the moment Ben decided to leave the party over this one issue.

Yes, Goldwater. It's good to see that we have two parties that believe *the exact same thing!*

Have fun being in the other party that believes in "the exact same thing". Grin

Seriously? The hill you are willing to die on is restrooms? FFS. In that case, good riddance.

Yes, the safety and security of women in their own restroom is that important. I'm tired of the long, slow, slide of the federalists into the oblivion that is Labor.

The better question is if you have such antipathy to conservativism, what are you doing in the Federalist party, Goldwater?


Frankly, you're just plain delusional if you think people using the restroom of the gender they identify with poses a threat to anybody. As for why I'm a Federalist, it's becasue I don't think transphobia is a requirement for being considered conservative, unlike you apparently.

This is rather surprising, but welcome.

It's becasue he's pissed off about us not being anti-transsexual enough.

/Walks out on convention.

"We are walking out because we see no indication that the Leinad/Lumine regime has any respect for regional rights and the rights of children and their families to be protected. He's willing to sacrifice their safety to play the politics of gender identity and appeasing those who will not support him in the end.

I, and others here in the glorious state of Texas, cannot and will not support a nominee who supports such things. I will be tossing my support to the Laborite ticket.

Why? Because honesty goes a long way. Labor may be a bunch of unprincipled ***holes but at least you know what they will stand behind and support every election. And frankly, I'm tired of being lied to and told, "my vote counts."

Seriously? The hill you are willing to die on is restrooms? FFS. In that case, good riddance.

Well, nothing in life is a 100% guarantee, so I went with 90%

lol @ New Hampshire.
63  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If your views were reflected across the political "center" what would they be? on: June 09, 2016, 03:03:21 pm
I feel as though some are taking each of their viewpoints and making it the opposite, whereas I see a "reflection over the center" as placing you just as far right/left as you are currently, just on the other side. So that is what I am going to go with.

Yeah, that's what I was trying to go for.
64  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If your views were reflected across the political "center" what would they be? on: June 09, 2016, 01:00:21 pm
Hmm, I would probably identify as a member of the "Religious left", with two of my biggest issues being support for protectionism and government involvement to protect children from "dangerous" forms of media, such as violent video games. I would probably support Sanders primarily becasue of his views on foreign policy views, although I would consider myself more socially conservative than either of them, and in general election would be undecided between Hillary and Trump, considering them both to be good choices for different reasons. Things such as my generally anti-abortion views and increasing skepticism towards socialism might make feel like something of a "DINO" sometimes, but ultimately I would still consider myself overall more left wing than right wing.

Also, even though this doesn't really have anything to with politics my counterpart would have to love cold. snowy climates and hate big cities. Tongue

I, Goldwater, will hereby resign from the House of Representatives.

I, Goldwater, do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of Fremont Senator, and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the Republic of Atlasia, so help me Dave.

It's a good thing I lack any religious beliefs to force me to be sympathetic towards horrible people. Tongue
68  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: The right to vote or not to vote.. on: June 08, 2016, 09:53:38 pm
I wish mandatory voting wasn't even a topic of conversation, like, ever. But here we are, millions and millions and millions of people who don't participate for various reasons. What happened to a sense of civic duty? The desire to make your voice heard? The elections don't stop just because you lost faith or never even had interest to begin with. By not voting, you cede more and more power to the most motivated and often, the most radical voters we have.

The thing is, unfortunately, there are some people out there who literally couldn't care less about politics. Those types of people aren't even going to bother trying to educate themselves, even if voting is mandatory, and IMO those people not voting is preferable to them making an uninformed vote.

My hope was that, by forcing a pattern of consistent participation, gradually people will become more familiar, more informed, more confident with the democratic process.  Rousseau would say that in order to find the true general will/common good, everybody's voice must be heard.

I'm going to go put on my John Lennon glasses and sing "Imagine" now.

Perhaps you're right, though I remain skeptical. I guess you just have more faith in people than I do. Tongue
69  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 2016 General Election Preference Poll on: June 08, 2016, 09:22:01 pm
I voted undecided, even though that isn't entirely accurate, as I have decided I won't vote for either of them.

Would you consider voting for Johnson?

Yeah, that's who I plan on voting for.

No (literally sane)

The Green Party should endorse people in Republican primaries? Tongue

I think West Virginia and Oklahoma will be very angry about this. They did not know it was a secession proxy battle.

lol

I don't see why it's funny. You'll probably find more Confederate flags per capita in WV than in many of the actual former Confederate states.

Assuming that's true, that just makes it even more funny.
