It can only work if all states adopt it at the same time, effective replacing the electoral college with a national popular vote.

Congratulations, you found an ideology that's contradictory in the very etymology of its name.

You are correct, a state is required for private ownership and property rights to be to be enforced. Of course, a state is also required for collective ownership to be enforced, making anarcho-communism equally impossible.

1Died in office of natural causes

Only ones I like here.... JFK and Kemp. I see no anti-establishment conservatives besides the two of them. Looks like no Reagan Revolution, no rise of evangelicals,  left wing of GOP is stronger but conservatives have no place to go.

Kasich/Ryan is a pretty conservative ticket.
84  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International What-ifs / Re: Worldwide Electoral College on: April 20, 2016, 12:48:38 am
I wonder a candidate could win just by winning India and East Asia. Of course, I have no idea if they would ever even vote for the same candidate, but it's a weird thought nonetheless.
85  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which Paulitician do you prefer? on: April 20, 2016, 12:44:30 am
Rand, I guess. Both are too non-interventionist for me, although I would still pick Rand over Cruz or Trump.
86  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Have you been to the place depicted in the previous poster's avatar? on: April 20, 2016, 12:42:45 am
Technically yes, although I don't remember it. My family lived in St. Petersburg for about a year, from when I was around six months old to when I was about a year and a lah old.
87  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who would you vote for in the hypothetical New York GOP Primary? on: April 19, 2016, 03:32:56 pm
Kramer, of course.

Are these actual characters in a TV show?

...You've never seen Seinfeld!? Shocked Huh
88  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: is the previous poster more conservative or liberal then John kasich on: April 19, 2016, 02:59:10 pm
Obviously to the right.
89  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: is the previous poster more conservative or liberal then John kasich on: April 19, 2016, 02:43:52 pm
He might actually be to the right.

A bit cringe worthy, but it seems pretty harmless. It's not like they aer actually trying to ban porn.
91  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Last president from the opposite party you consider an FF on: April 19, 2016, 01:24:21 pm
Lincoln is, in fact, the only president I consider a clear FF.

Not even Washington or FDR?
92  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: The CrabCake Bureau of Funny Post Archival on: April 19, 2016, 01:23:07 pm

Joe is absolutely correct. Saying "I could care less" (or using "literally" figuratively) should disqualify you from being President.

And yet you are a fan valley girl speech. Tongue
93  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Last president from the opposite party you consider an FF on: April 19, 2016, 12:32:42 pm
Obama. Tongue
94  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Political Quiz List. Are you a Quiz Whiz? on: April 19, 2016, 12:31:19 pm

They've finally gone the route of forcing you to sign up for their stupid dating site to view your results, so nobody should bother taking that test.

Not if you use the Helloquizzy version. It will ask you to make an account, but you can just skip to the results screen. I've been doing that for years. Tongue
95  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who will you be voting for in the General Election: Cruz vs. Clinton. on: April 19, 2016, 10:54:21 am
Ugh, probably Cruz. Sad

#RINO
#ModerateRepublican

Says a lot more about Hillary than me.

If she wouldn't have taken her pathetic lurch to the left this primary season, I'd have considered it.
I disagree, it says a lot about you. You're a hypocrit.
You constantly whine about how extremist your base is and now you're just going to support the worst of them.

Disliking extremists in the Republican base in no way excuses the ones in the Democratic base...?  Whether you choose to accept it or not, the liberal base of the Democratic Party has dragged Hillary decidedly to the left, and she's gone more than willingly in a desperate attempt to avoid choke 2.0.  Hillary is much closer to Sanders on economic issues than she is a moderate Republican, with her main "difference" being tag lines and campaign slogans that Bernie conjures up about things her husband did or some stylistic difference, and I'm not going to vote for those kinds of policies.  Despite the delusion of some on Atlas, neither Cruz nor Hillary are anything resembling a centrist.
Did I say she was centrist?

No, she's clearly on the left, was more to the left than Obama and Biden when they were all senators.

In a Cruz-Clinton match up, I simply didn't expect you to choose any of them. Cruz is literally a nut you see,...
I think most of us on this website are too stubborn to simply not vote. Tongue

To the left.

Secretary of State: CrabCake (O-UK)
Secretary of the Treasury: Muon2 (R-IL)

There were some office where I had no idea who would be the fit, some people I wanted in government but wasn't sure where to put them, and of course more people that I have a positive opinion of than I can possibly fit on a list like this. With all of that in mind, take this list with a grain of salt Tongue

More left-wing overall, probably.
99  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: How should we vote for the president of the world on: April 19, 2016, 09:02:39 am
Anyway, I think that if a world government somehow came into being it would be a parliamentary system, so any "president" would be a figurehead anyway. In that case, I don't really care how they're elected.

Yeah, probably this. I just can't see a FPTP, winner-take-all system working very well at the global level.
100  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who will you be voting for in the General Election: Cruz vs. Clinton. on: April 19, 2016, 08:57:39 am
It's nice the moderates won't vote third party...

I know this isn't how you're "supposed to" think about it, but if I still lived in IL ... I'd vote third party for sure.  Heck, I still might!  However, being in Iowa, things are usually pretty tight.

I kind of have a similar view. If forced to pick, my preference would probably go something like Cruz>Hillary>Sanders>Trump, but unless I happen to live in a battleground state come election time, I will most likely vote libertarian over any of them.
