Dewhurst.

Lean Nashville, though I am really fine with either winning.

So, I tried recreating your state using this app* to see how they would vote in 2016. The results stay mostly the same, but Minneapolis , Virginia Beach, Warren, and Pittsburgh all flipped to Trump. I suppose none of that is surprising, but I thought it would be interesting to try anyway. Tongue


*(Though because you can't split counties, the LA area doesn't really work. If if I move Ventura county over to the Fresno state, I just end up with two somewhat overpopulated state rather than one very overpopulated state)

It sounds kind of dumb to me, but whatever makes them happy I suppose.

I don't know, I generally think young women look more attractive than old men. Tongue
81  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What if the Democrats moderated on abortion? on: January 11, 2017, 11:07:44 pm
If the Democrats moderated on abortion, I'd seriously consider changing parties.

Then just do it now and help them take the first step.

I would think that you of all people would want Inks to remain a Republican. Tongue
82  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: How would you describe the previous poster's ideology? on: January 11, 2017, 11:05:36 pm
I would simply call it far-right since "extreme conservatism" kind of sounds like an oxymoron to me.

FFS Scarlet, take a chill pill. I very much disagree with David on society being better off if politicians express their religious view sand that religiosity should the default option in society, but to compare those claims to racism is insane.
84  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Have you been in a Clinton state in 2017? on: January 11, 2017, 10:31:10 pm
I have not been in a Clinton state this decade. As far as I can remember, I have not been in a Clinton state since 2003.

The fact that I have spent the last 14 years continually in the South without going to another region is rather shocking to me. I'll need a moment to process this... Tongue

I'm kind of in the same boat, but with the west instead. Tongue

86  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is your Nolan chart score? on: January 11, 2017, 07:24:43 pm
This test is basically propaganda to get conservatives into the libertarian box (similar to that one YAL uses, though I'm still slightly in the conservative box on that one), by having things like opposing gun control counting against the social score.

I don't tihnk that's quite how it works. It's more like, each question has an answer that fits for each quadrant, so the "libertarian" answer is often the most extreme one for any given issue.
87  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is your Nolan chart score? on: January 11, 2017, 05:54:54 pm
Centrist; near conservative and libertarian.

Same.
88  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Do Democrats need a Western strategy? on: January 11, 2017, 05:29:10 pm
That's a better Presidential strategy.  Texas and Arizona are great electoral prizes but in the Senate winning in Texas wouldn't make up for losing in a Midwestern state.

I'm not talking about Texas and Arizona. I'm taking about Alaska, Montana, Idaho, and Utah.

That would be a bad strategy apart from Alaska.

How is focusing your resources on a tiny remote isolated state a good strategy?

Roosevelt to stop Strauss.

One issue of course is getting to where my girlfriend lives, since that would require traveling through a Trump state and many Trump counties. So my plan is to only get gas and food in Hillary counties. That basically means stopping in Eau Claire, and then filling up in Dane County along the way. Rockford would be OK too, since in the end Winnebago County narrowly voted for Hillary. But I'm not going to get out and set foot in any of the Trump counties that exist between Hennepin County and Lake County, IL. Ideally I could just boycott Wisconsin altogether but alas that wretched place has to be stuck between us.

This has however convinced me that everyone's hatred of the Green Bay Packers is 100% justified.

Not when your PC is a piece of junk that can't possibly play any modern games, like mine. Tongue

I'm perfectly happy with a Saturn thank you very much! Wink

You have a Saturn? Cool.

PS4, I don't currently own an Xbox console. I have noting against Xbox or Microsoft, but my focus is on exclusive games, so I usually get Nintendo and Sony consoles.
95  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Atlas Moral Acceptability Poll on: January 11, 2017, 12:39:25 am
Why does consent matter in terms of morality? Is it acceptable to take drugs, because you consented to it. Is it acceptable to have a sword fight to the death if both parties consented to it? Consent matters jack shyte, in laws or morality.

Well, I would say that the lack of consent matters a very great deal to morality and laws...

I will also endorse Laura Rummel.
97  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Map with popular vote tie on: January 10, 2017, 12:03:35 pm


Hillary Clinton/Tim Kaine (D): 275 EV, 49.0%
Donald Trump/Mike Pence (R): 263 EV, 49.0%

How does Trump increasing his share of the popular vote cause him to lose the electoral vote? That makes no sense.
98  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Why do people take the Political Compass seriously? on: January 10, 2017, 11:52:45 am
Honestly, I don't think the Political Compass is completely useless for comparing different quiz takers to each other. Their placement of actual political parties and politicians is obviously complete garbage, though.

Syndicalist.

This honestly surprises me.

Regarding the part asking whether I find it acceptable or unacceptable that married men and women have affairs -is this strictly asking within the context of a monogamous relationship in which the other partner has an affair without the other's consent?  Or are you extending this to swinging/polyamory which can be regarded as consensual affairs? 

I interpreted it as the former. I wouldn't consider it to be an "affair" if it's consensual, and there is also a separate question for polygamy.
