51  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Are you offended by whites making racist comments about whites? on: August 20, 2015, 01:34:06 pm
No, of course that's because not much in general offends me. I mean, what's the point in getting offended by things? If people like you, good, if not, than f***K them and move on with your life.

Atheist and Agnostic.

What is it with this forum's conservatives' obsession with Goldwaters and Tafts?

Who would rather have us obsess over? Romneys and Bushes?
54  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would you have been a Democrat pre-1900? on: August 20, 2015, 11:16:31 am
It's obviously hard to day for sure, but I could see myself being a Democrat from their founding up until sometime in the 1840s.
55  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Who are the Republican voters in this precinct? on: August 19, 2015, 07:34:14 pm
The 122 people that voted for McCain.
56  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: In general, which are better places to live? on: August 19, 2015, 07:31:51 pm
Exurbs with >80% Romney would be pretty nice, and I like rural areas too.  That being said, a college town or nice part of Minneapolis or something that's >80% Obama would be cool too.  

I chose >80% Romney, but it depends on the area.  

Well yes, there is a huge variation in places that fit into these categories. For example, people are talking about how all the >80% Obama areas are urban while the Romney areas are rural, when there are plenty of rural Obama areas (see: the former Shannon County, black belt areas in the South) so this isn't really an answerable question to me as there are a huge amount of different options that this "match-up" could possibly have me choosing between.

Since it was BRTD, when he said "80% Obama area," I instantly thought of a college town or some relatively gentrified (but still quite diverse) part of a city.  Tongue

But for me, if by >80% Obama area we're talking about a ghetto or Native American Reservation, then no way for me.  College town, Vermont, or yuppie-ish type place?  Sure, I could go for it potentially, though I personally like the uber-conservative suburbs of the American Southwest a lot as a hot weather aficionado.

I think muon's post about "The Big Sort" is quite interesting, as I'm heading off to a very liberal university, but I do intend to move to a more religious, conservative place upon graduation.

Wait, are sunbelt suburbs really that conservative? Because I pictured >80% Romney areas as being rural Midwestern farmland, but if, for example, parts of suburban Phoenix are >80% Romney that really changes things...
57  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: In general, which are better places to live? on: August 19, 2015, 06:33:43 pm
I guess >80% Obama, but only becasue I don't want to live in the middle of nowhere.
58  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Political Quiz List. Are you a Quiz Whiz? on: August 17, 2015, 11:30:12 am
I forgot to post my party result's on that quiz:

Libertarians : 88%
Constitution Party: 85%
Republicans: 84%
Democrats: 71%
Socialist: 63%

Foreign Policy: Constitution Party (lol, WTF? Huh)
The Economy: Republican
Healthcare: Libertarians
Social: Libertarians
The Environment: Republicans
Immigration: Green Party
Domestic Policy: Libertarians
Education: Libertarians, Constitution Party, and Republicans

Ideology: Libertarian (A bit more right-wing than left-wing, and really close to the centrist area)
59  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: To the Republicans on here, how do you describe your ideology and why? on: August 16, 2015, 11:41:17 pm
I don't really know what to call my views. They aren't consistent enough to be called libertarian and are further right than what I consider to be moderate, so I guess conservative fits, albeit a version of conservatism that lacks influence from the religious right.
60  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Which forum is ran more in accordance with Christian principles? on: August 16, 2015, 11:37:47 pm
I'm confused as to what difference would it make if a political forum was run according to Christian values.

EVERYTHING should be ran according to Christian values.

Ah, so I see you support theocracy now.
61  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Opinion of Pope Francis on: August 16, 2015, 08:18:17 pm
Overrated. I guess I have to either be Catholic or a Left-winger to see the appeal.
62  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Which forum is ran more in accordance with Christian principles? on: August 16, 2015, 07:36:24 pm
Apparently Christian = everything BRTD agrees with.
63  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Iowa vs. Southern California on: August 16, 2015, 03:14:35 pm
Iowa (not a reptile).

Well, I am a reptile, so f**k you! Angry
64  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Iowa vs. Southern California on: August 16, 2015, 01:15:57 pm
SoCal in the easiest choice ever (normal)
65  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you want me banned from this FORUM ? on: August 16, 2015, 01:14:47 pm
Yes. Not because of this forum's laughable oversensitivity, but for making this poll.

A liberal democrat who started doing ironic hipster Republican primary votes in 2012.
67  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: The Big City Areas vs The Rest of the State: Florida on: August 16, 2015, 09:11:10 am
I'm going with Tampa/St. Petersburg.

Went with Orlando.

Out of curiosity, is there any rhyme or reason to the order you are doing these in?

Originally, it was purely on whim. But once I got to Texas, I switched over to rankings by the most populous city areas in the U.S. vs the other parts...adding secondary city areas where necessary

Had that been my plan from the beginning, the list would look like:

1. New York [NYC vs Upstate]
2. California [LA vs San Francisco vs the rest]
3. Illinois [Chicago vs Downstate]
4. Texas [Houston vs Dallas/Fort Worth vs Austin vs San Antonio vs El Paso vs the rest]
5. Pennsylvania [Philadelphia vs Pittsburgh vs Pennsyltucky and the rest]
6. Arizona [Phoenix vs Tucson vs The Rest]
7. Florida [Jacksonville vs Miami vs Tampa/St. Petersburg vs Orlando vs the Rest]
8. Indiana [Indianapolis vs the Rest]
9. Ohio [Columbus vs Cleveland vs Cincinnati vs The Rest]
10. North Carolina [Charlotte vs Raleigh vs The Rest]

Since Florida is current and I'm keeping to this to the end [California being the best-for-last exception], Indiana is next.







I see. Although California has a lot more big cites than LA and San Francisco. Tongue

5 stars!
69  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: If Atlas had had a 'dislike' option since day 1, how many would BRTD have? on: August 15, 2015, 10:40:58 pm
numbers on AAD:

Posts: 1,322
Likes: 2,134
Dislikes: 460

at that ratio, then just under 26,000.

A more interesting question is how many Libertas would have.

That's not a very accurate method of figuring that out. I mean, I don't recall you posting as many stupid matchups on AAD as you do here.

No, Hamilton will not.
71  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: The Big City Areas vs The Rest of the State: Florida on: August 15, 2015, 07:46:54 pm
Went with Orlando.

72  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: The Big City Areas vs The Rest of the State: Arizona on: August 15, 2015, 06:30:02 pm
I don't see why I should feel compelled to choose any part of Arizona.

Maybe becasue it's one of the best states?
73  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which of the following terms would you use to describe your ideology? on: August 15, 2015, 04:22:28 pm
I would describe my ideology with the following terms:

Christian
Conservative
Fundamentalist
Reactionary
Traditionalist
Theocratic
Clerical fascist
Anti-socialist
Anti-communist
Anti-feminist

WTF? Huh
74  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Are you more Liberal or Conservative then your parents and grandparents on: August 14, 2015, 01:01:45 pm
It feels utterly bizarre to think of people regularly discussing politics with their grandparents. All I know about the political affiliations of my grandparents on my dad's side is that they were big Republicans a while back, with a few Need Nixon Now and WIN buttons scattered around their house. I have no idea what they think now. The only political stance my grandfather on my mom's side has ever mentioned is that the new eye doctor in town, that Randal guy, is a real nutter.

My grandfather is the one that does all of the discussing. Tongue

Most likely VVD.
