I am no longer an office holder, haven't had internet for two weeks, and yet I am still somehow the last person to post in this thread? WTF, people?

We have been focusing on electing a new speaker and trying to expell inactive Representatives.

I will open this up for a continued 48 hour debate period.

Ah, fair enough. I just thought I would come see what happened to my bill while I was gone, and was disappointed when I found out the answer was "absolutly nothing". Tongue

79  Forum Community / Forum Community / Officially in California Now! (And with internet!) on: September 13, 2016, 02:17:41 pm
I didn't make an official forum announcement or anything, but a few of you were aware that I was moving to California (hence the avatar change Tongue). Well, now I am here to announce that I am officially moved in and, after some delays, have internet again. I don't really want to give away specific personal details about my location or anything like that, but I will say that I am in the general Sacramento area and I am liking it so far. Smiley

The Cruz-type ones are mostly OK, but misguided, given that the Supreme Court is on the line for a generation.  It's the Kasich-type "let's give in on everything" ones that really give me a negative opinion of the group- especially the libertarian-leaners who are voting for Liberal Gary Johnson.

GOP shouldn't have nominated Trump then, not our fault. And hint, us libertarians ARE NOT CONSERVATIVES.

You can say that again!

I assume ExtremeRepublican's point is that he's not fond of l ibertarians in general, at least as an ideology, which I can sympathize with.  Give me the choice between a strongly Christian, socially conservative Democratic Party and a libertarian, pro-choice Republican Party, and I'd vote Dem 100 times out of 100.

I greatly look forward to this day!

Me too!

Me as well, though I'd be voting in the opposite direction Tongue

Same. Tongue

Wyoming may be the most underrated state on Atlas.

If going on a rino safari suits your fancy, then don't be surprised if you end up locking yourself into the losing side of a 7-3 spread.

You're already on a 7-3 split.

Social conservatives are a finite commodity

You believe that the party should be nothing but a loose coalition of folks who are vaguely to the right of Labor.

How is that working for you, Yankee? Does that suggest that you have a vision? A dream a goal, a purpose?

I have a vision and a dream and a purpose, and I think traditional marriage is something worth fighting for. Adam is laughing not at me, but at you because he knows he's won the argument. When the debate is over how far will we go, not whether, "why are we travelling in this direction", Adam has won without firing a shot.

That's what you're not getting Yankee. You have a 'party' of folks that don't agree on anything. Everytime you bring up goldwater but how often do you go and say, "hey, maybe that's not cool for Ben Kenobi? Never heard that.

Why is goldwater's fiscal conservativism more important than social conservativism? If goldwater wants to join labor because he wants homosexual marriage. let him. Let all of them go. So long as they love homosexual marriage more than they do the Federalists, you will continue to lose. Every election.

I would never do that because, unlike some people, I think leaving a party over one issue is dumb.

Mostly FF's.  I might have been one, if the Supreme Court, religious liberty, and gun rights weren't at stake.

Roll Eyes

I mean, if you are Muslim religious liberty is probably at stake this election. Wink

It depends on whether they are voting for Clinton or not.

How do you feel about Johnson supporting one's?

For some reason he seems kind of Nixonian to me recently.

PiT? I guess. Similar politics.

Wait, when was PiT President? Shocked

This bill as written does not reflect the current legal reality of the situation. So what do we want to try to do? Repeal the 1984 and set just a drinking age for those areas under federal jurisdiction and leave the regions to do what they want?   Put forward a single minimum age for the whole country?  Or, modify the 1984 bill to a different age?  (I honestly don't get the idea that we would take away highway funding for a region having a drinking age of 24. What is the logic of that?  ) Or, come up with an entirely new policy?


Not that I have a say anymore, but this one was closest to my original intent. First of all, I anted to eliminate any connection to highway funding, and second of all I thought the minimum age should be 18 instead of 21. After bring up this idea to some people privately, they suggested that going for regional rights would be the better approach for gaining broad support, which is why the weirdly worded bill ended up the way it did.

Yes, I talk about God, social conservatism, Ronald Reagan, Western civilization and my disdain for Obama far more around liberals.

I use colorful language with my conservative friends.

Wait, you talk about that stuff more around liberals? IRC is you holding back? Shocked Tongue
95  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Does your audience affect your political views? on: August 23, 2016, 10:26:46 am
Probably to some degree, though usually I just avoid talking about politics around people I'm not very close to. Meanwhile, around people I know very well, I tend to play devil's advocate, to the point where I have sometimes had people think I hold oppose views than I actually do on certain issues. Tongue

Look, I don't know how to words things. It would have been helpful if people would have pointed how I did it wrong and how to fix it back when this bill was being discussed in the Senate. Tongue

TBH, a carbon tax doesn't sound completely horrible to me. Taxes on externalities make more sense than taxes on income or consumption, IMO.
