I despise it. Vertical Venns are just wrong.

Lust-Envy-Pride Party
Wrath-Avarice-Gluttony Party

Are you suggesting that both parties are Slothful or that both are Diligent or that both parties seem to be both at all the worst times?

I would assume sloth is non-voters, while diligence applies to both parties.

Lust-Envy-Pride Party
Wrath-Avarice-Gluttony Party

So does this make the Republicans the "Chastity-Kindness-Humility Party" and the Democrats the "Patience-Charity-Temperance  Party"? Tongue

R (though if Trump goes off the deep end, it can easily be L)/won't leave/won't leave.

None of you guys are actually going to leave the country. Why is this even a poll?

What would even be "off the deep end" for Trump at this point?

Since it's much more fun than to have yourself lose in these scenarios rather than give yourself a very unrealistic win, here's my floors for both"



Between Trump and I, it's a mess. Just a god awful mess. A bigger mess than Jeb Bush's campaign and love life. I don't want to talk about how big of a mess this is.

Donald Trump/ Chris Christie 288 EVs
Samuel Gotham/ Jim Webb 250




The Gotham v. Clinton election is a bit more straightforward. Gotham advances margins in Southern and Appalachian states at the expense of being crushed out West. Hispanics come out heavily for Clinton, while Gotham takes almost 20% of the Black vote.

Hillary Clinton/ Al Franken 349 EVs

Samuel Gotham/ Rick Santorum 189 EVs

Cleveland. Don't raise the damn tariffs.
57  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: In which country is there more respect for freedom? USA or Norway? on: May 19, 2016, 11:52:49 pm
The answer is obvious.  It's the one where being gay is not an issue, where they don't lock people up for 25 years for simple drug possession, where freedom of speech and freedom of religion are truly understood, where women's reproductive rights can be taken for granted, etc.

Freedom isn't all about lasseiz-faire economics and guns.

Literally every single European country has worse freedom of speech than us.  We don't punish people for having terrible opinions, like Holocaust denial.

Is this sarcasm or do you really think the height of freedom is being able to say "the holocaust never happened"?

Free speech is indeed very important.

All in all, I still prefer the policies of the U.S. overall.
63  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of this link: lesser of two evils on: May 19, 2016, 05:59:49 pm
Two words: Electoral college. As long presidential elections are conducted through that system, there will only be two viable parties that are competitive at the national level. Of course, becasue of that very same system people in safe states don't have to worry about voting for third parties, since voting for the other major party won't make a difference anyway.

TBH, I would support abolishing life imprisonment but keeping the death penalty.

Wilsonian
You scored 9 Force, 5 Institutions, and 3 Ideals!

You are a true believer, a wild-eyed zealot. You aren't afraid to use force to achieve your ends, though you'd prefer to use the UN, and you truly believe that a country's foreign policy should follow its ideals. You mean well, but know this: the road to Baghdad is paved with good intentions. You are most likely young and idealistic, and you probably trust whatever your leaders say. After all, they would never lie to you.

HMPI
Horizontalist - Militant - Progressive - Individualist

You are opposed to big government and state welfare, and believe that the market would function much more efficently without any government intervention. You are prepared to take radical action against a state which tramples over individual rights.

 

Examples of historical HMPIs are:

Max Stirner - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Stirner

Liberal Cosmopolitan Independent
77% Liberty, 31% Equality, 38% Stability and 58% Power!

You think liberty is important both for yourself and for all of humanity. You respect others and think it is important that everyone be given the opportunity to make decisions for themselves rather than have authority figures tell them what is best. The autonomy of every person is important to you but you think there are times in which personal action needs to be limited. As such you recognise that there is a role for government as long as it depends on the consent of the governed this makes representative government important to you. You prefer the role of government in society to be small. In practice you will tolerate their activity as long as it is efficient and allows you to get on with your life. You are likely to advocate for both a predominantly free political system and a cosmopolitan and permissive culture.

You also believe or desire to maintain a strong military organization in aggressive preparedness for war, but think the role of the military should be in service  to your other principles.

(I've actually never taken this one before. As long as you can look over the kind of weird game centric language, I think it's a pretty good test with fairly accurate results. It's basically  the Political Objectives Test with another scale.)

In reality, I lose every state, but for the sake of this let's pretend I am an at least somewhat well respected who is actually eligible and qualified to be president of the United States.

Me vs. Hillary



375-163

Low turnout among the religious right and more working class republican causes me to lose many state in the east.

Me vs. Trump



315-133

I might be a bad Republican, but I am an even worse Democrat. Tongue

It seem like the contractual/legal issues could get complicated, but I have no moral issues against it.

Guillotines are great, but I do agree that firing squads are even better.

I mean, if your goal is to get Trump elected, this is a good idea.
