What does that do for Reagan's political future ?

Ends it (he never advances past Governor of California and perhaps even loses reelection there)

How does Ford not pardoning Nixon in 1974 prevent Reagan from being reelected in 1970?

The amendment vote?
sorry for being late, I worked today Tongue.



Quote
End Sports Profiteering Act of 2014

Section 1: Sports Stadiums
1. All sports stadiums constructed, renovated, relocated, or in any way subsidized with public funding shall be purchased by the federal government (unless said stadiums are already owned by the municipality, state, or Region in which they reside) of the Republic of Atlasia effective upon the passage of this legislation.

2. Said properties shall be renovated with the use of all applicable federal funds necessary to bring such stadiums up to all applicable local, state, regional, and federal building and safety codes, and shall then be turned over to the municipal governments in which they reside for all future maintenance, upkeep, and management.

3 1. No new sports stadiums shall be constructed on behalf of team owners or private individuals at the taxpayers' expense with the use of federal governmental funds, effective upon the passage of this legislation. All future sports stadiums constructed shall be fully owned, paid for, maintained, and managed by the municipalities in which they reside.

Section 2: Sports Teams

1. All sports teams owned by private owners shall be purchased by the federal government of the Republic of Atlasia effective upon the passage of this legislation.

2. Said teams shall then be turned over to the municipal governments in which they reside for management. Municipal governments shall establish a public board of directors responsible for the day-to-day management of the teams in question, with half the seats on said board reserved for team member representatives, elected by the team members themselves through their respective labor unions.

3. No new sports teams shall be established on behalf of team owners or private individuals effective upon the passage of this legislation. All future sports teams established shall be fully owned, paid, maintained, and managed by the municipalities in which they reside.


Section 3 2: Implementation

1. This legislation shall take effect upon it's passage.

A vote is now open.
Please senators, vote AYE, NAY or Abstain.

The results of the vote:
Aye (7): Senator Goldwater, Senator bore, Senator shua, Senator Tyrion, Senator DC, Senator Griffin, Senator North Carolina Yankee
Nay (1): Senator TNF
Abstain (1): Senator Alfred Jones
Non Voting (1): Senator Lumine

This amendment passes.
I, Windjammer, certify these results are accurate.

I consider this amendment as FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE.
Goldwater, bore, shua, tyrion, dc, griffin, yankee get 0.
Alfred gets 0.5 point
TNF gets 1 point
Lumine has failed to vote in time.

Don't you have this backwards? I thought you just said higher scores were more fiscally conservative? Why does voting against the amendment increase your score?
86  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Would the previous poster's political opinions be popular in California? on: July 18, 2014, 08:32:05 pm
I wouldn't think so. Too left-wing for the conservative parts of the state, and not socially/culturally liberal enough for the liberal parts.

I'm thinking California. Sure, it was Republican in the past, but when thinking about the present, it is a dyed in the wool Democratic state.

It's not what comes to mind for me, but maybe that's just because I go to the state a lot so I'm familiar with it's more conservative areas.

New York.
96  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Most characteristically Republican state on: July 16, 2014, 08:43:41 pm
Utah. Prat of me wants to say a deep south state, but racial demographics makes Utah a better fit IMO.
97  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Is the previous poster to the left/right of you? on: July 16, 2014, 08:18:07 pm
Right on some issues, but overall pretty far to the left.
98  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Your Party ID Through the Years on: July 16, 2014, 08:15:01 pm
1789-1800: Federalist
1800-1824: Jeffersonian Democrat
1824-1848: Jacksonian Democrat
1848-1854: Free Soil Party (although I could see myself supporting Winfield Scott in 1852)
1854-Present: Republican Party (with the except of a few elections)
99  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1920 Primaries on: July 16, 2014, 06:43:32 pm
Preference Coolidge, Harding, or Reed.

Stategically voted Palmer

But...but...but...I thought only liberals try to sabatoge their opponents' primaries Roll Eyes

No, it's just 1920's fault - last go-around we had sabotage in 1920 too.

But can we surpass a sabotage like Pat Buchanan in 1992, who subsequently only got 6%?

Pat Buchanan was 1996, IIRC (and ironically, I think it only worked because so many Republicans voted for Bill Clinton to try to sabotage the Democrats Tongue ).  This being the Atlas, I actually doubt it was sabotage that led to Ron Paul's nomination in 1992.  However, while a significant number of Buchanan's votes were likely Republican, I'm sure some lefties voted for him and (IIRC) I was among those who criticized that.  The way I see it, sabotaging your opponent's nomination contest is wrong regardless of who does it and only makes this thing less fun.  I also don't consider "well they started it" or "yeah, but you guys were worse" to be a legitimate justification for sabotage.  My point was that in Cathcon's original series some folks on the right tried to act like only liberal posters were doing this and clearly that isn't the case.

I think at least a few of those Republicans actually supported Clinton. For example, me. Tongue

Pew has changed their Political Typology quiz since the last time I have taken it.

Political Typology Quiz

Business Conservatives generally are traditional small-government Republicans. Overwhelming percentages think that government is almost always wasteful and it does too much better left to businesses and individuals. Business Conservatives differ from Steadfast Conservatives in their positive attitudes toward business and in their strong support for Wall Street in particular. Most think that immigrants strengthen the country and take a positive view of U.S. global involvement. As a group, they are less socially conservative than Steadfast Conservatives.
