Meh, I'm plotting my re-entry into politics here in Houston. My goal is to be back in office within the next 3 years.

What office were you in before?

By virtue of not being a communist, obviously yes. However, calling yourself "anticommunist" is a pretty meaningless term in the modern U.S.

5 stars, even with LA, San Diego, Bakersfield, Orange County and the other places with bad weather, rank culture.

Truly there is no place more diverse in feel and look.

Proud to have lived there once.

Yes, it is five stars even with the best cities and counties. Wink

San Jose should be on here, but I would choose LA among these cities.

San Jose > San Francisco IMO.

Actually, on second thought, I would switch the places of Portland and San Francisco.
91  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Political Quiz List. Are you a Quiz Whiz? on: September 25, 2015, 07:22:07 pm

You scored 53% Personal Liberty and 56% Economic Liberty!

A centrist believes in moderate government intervention in both personal and economic matters. They tend to be somewhat ambiguous, as they may have the oppurtunity to pick the side of any group surrounding them on any given issue. They generally believe in a moderate social safety net and what they consider to be a balanced stance on personal liberty. Centrists tend to emphasize compromise and cooperation between partisan groups.

(Apparently I'm a moderate hero now. Tongue)

100  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Process / Re: How did Vermont go from being the most Republican state to the most Democratic on: September 24, 2015, 07:48:04 pm
The point is, the Democrats were the more racist party before, and now the Republicans are the more racist party. So in that sense, they did switch sides.
No, it's still not really that simple. For example, the Democrats of the 19th century might have been more racist against blacks, but you could easily argue that the GOP of the same time period was more racist against foreigners.
