While I agree that Hardcore and Screamo would be some of the most "high energy" forms of music, I still find it odd to see Metal, outside of Doom Metal and similar subgenres, described as "low energy".

Actually, I have a question. Since you said you are combining areas  with similar cultures and demographics, why are Portland and Seattle two separate states? I don't think combining them would make the state too big.

All of the states that I actually LIKE are gone except for WI and CO ... TN is borderline.

Yeah, I kind of get your pain. California is the only sate left that I would actually put in my top 5, although Louisiana and Tennessee are probably top 10.

Maybe I'm becoming more liberal, or maybe recent discussions involving Religion have just left a sour taste in my mouth, but I seem to find myself drifting further and further away from the ideology of our more socially conservative posters.

No and I think it's a sign of our society sticking up its finger to God, saying "We don't like your sovereignty!  We don't like your rules!  We want to be autonomous creatures."  Such will never end well, and the judgment of God will rain down upon the West for this, along with many other sins associated with "modernity."  But I think of same-sex marriage as just the latest in a litany of such occurrences and is more of a signal rather than the sole problem in and of itself.

As far as "theocracy" is concerned, I don't believe America should be a theocracy, but I do wish we could return to the more biblical worldview that our leaders and majority of citizens once held.  When the activist judges legalized abortion in 1973 and kicked prayer and God's word out of public schools in 1961 (in addition to the concurrent sexual revolution, feminist movement, and liberalization of divorce laws during this time period) everything seemed to have gone downhill from there.

Your ideal society is a terrible theocracy.  Your only basis for opposing SSM is your faith:  God says it's wrong because the Bible says it's wrong, and therefore, it is wrong.  No questions asked.  Never mind there is no other reason be believe that SSM is bad.  Never mind the tangible proof that it is the prohibition of SSM that results in harm to members of society.  Societies with the oppressive policies you advocate make the lives of gays and lesbians hell on earth (to which you'll probably reply, 'wait 'till they get to real hell!').  Adult policy makers who promote bigoted policies play a large role in the anti-gay bullying of youth, and thus, a high rate of suicide.

Why should youngsters struggling with their sexuality have to grow up knowing that they they're hated, that they're "sinners", that who they are is an "abomination"?  Why should gays live in a society that persecutes them and drives them to suicide because of your particular religious beliefs?

Anyway, I don't need to get too angry, since your viewpoint has lost out in the US.  Thank God the Supreme Court has sided with the American Constitutional right to equal protection under the law, and not with what you consider the "truth."

What are your views?

I'm basically your generic liberal Democrat, but with an independent streak on certain issues. Pro-choice, pro-government, pro-Union, anti-trade, pro-gun control and above all, I hate conservatism and Republicans. I strongly support tougher accountability laws on police and their treatment of people, and if elected to Congress, I'd introduce a bill to allow the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, the CIA, and the Department of Justice to collaborate with the Southern Poverty Law Center to shut down right-wing hate/terrorist groups and anti-government militias and arrest their members before they can commit more acts of terror.

The biggest problem would be getting rid of some skeletons in my closet. How do they always manage to do that?

Don't worry, we hate you too. Grin

And that's a badge I'd wear proudly. My campaign slogan would be, "Making right-wing heads explode since 1995" Cheesy

That explains a lot.

Don't let that sucker ruin 1995 as a birthyear.

TIL I was born the same year as Wolverine. Tongue

McDonald's gonna win because of idiotic left-winger's, it's not like we've had the right (mostly) dominate this series.

Yeah, I agree. This is incredibly stupid, and half of McDonald's vote should be discounted due to American politics not working that way with third parties. The Republicans have not shown any sign of collapsing, and there's no reason why the Constitution Party should be tying with the Democrats.

Yeah, how dare people not vote the way Zioneer and Intell want them to Angry

I'm not saying people should vote my way, I'm just saying that the ironic voting is really dumb and would not have been present in a realistic election.

Maybe it could be explained in-universe as protest voting? That seems at least somewhat more plausible.
73  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: When did the parties switch platforms? on: January 18, 2016, 12:52:39 am
lmao "the parties never switched platforms"

Go on?



Red - States that voted majority R before 1964 and majority D since 1964
Blue - States that voted majority D before 1964 and majority R since 1964
Green - States that voted majority R both before and after 1964
Orange - States that voted majority D both before and after 1964
Yellow - States that voted for both parties equally before 1964 and majority R since 1964

This seems to imply (correctly) that either the parties or the states switched platforms sometime around 1964.

So you're saying that, for example, the 1988 Republican Party platform is the same as the 1940 Democratic Party platform, and vice versa? Because that's laughably ridiculous.
