The difference between 2014 and 2016 is one was a midterm and the other is a presidential year. It's harder to lie about one's record in a presidential year, like Gardner did when he said he is pro-choice, when he really is not.

Heck isn't Sharron Angle, that's about all I'll say.

Horrifying. The far left continues to insert its corrosive tentacles into the Democratic party, pushing them towards the hellish extremism that comes with any radical left-wing movement. Hopefully their embrace of this twisted worldview will be yet another reason they get slammed next year.

Netanyanhu is the problem. The Republican House gave him a platform to the slam the President from the House chamber, something that no other foreign leader would be given.
29  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why is it on: July 05, 2015, 09:59:35 am
Because Republicans do better in midterms when less voters show up. States really need to change their elections to be in presidential years.

And this wasn't even the establishment choice for Attorney General in the Republican primary. These Tea Party types have baggage that is never seen until after they are elected.

32  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The so-called "Demise" of the Republican Party is way overblown on: July 01, 2015, 08:07:33 pm
I'm not sure how much more inclusive the Republicans can get. They've spent the last 8 years obsessing over winning hard-left constituencies at the expense of the base.

The fact that Republicans have to gerrymander so aggressively just to have a chance at controlling the house and even several state legislatures shows that there is a major problem. At this point, they are drafting laws that draw districts that are not of equal population in order to maximize their votes. That behavior does not indicate a very healthy future.

Maryland. Illinois. No comment on those?

For heaven's sake, Chicagoland lost population and gained districts.

Gerrymandering doesn't change the fact that, even as Obama said, Democrats cluster in urban areas, more so now than ever before.  That puts them at a disadvantage in and of itself.

Legislatures have always drawn district lines.  Democrats can/would do the same thing if they controlled more state houses.

You are missing the point. The OP was making the argument that the Republicans controlling the House was somehow a sign that the party doesn't have issues for the future, when that House majority is based on gerrymandering. Republicans need gerrymandering way more than Democrats. Even on independently drawn maps, Democrats perform better.

Can someone tell me why one would care what the sexual orientation of your customers is? Money is money. Seems like this is more an attempt to get attention than anything else.

No gerrymander for Republicans. Good.
36  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What will be the next big social issue? on: June 26, 2015, 11:08:15 pm
I don't think there will be another big issue, at least not in terms of how abortion and gay marriage polarized people. Regardless of the ruling, social conservatives will still focus on the same issues.

This is for the right-wing. Marriage equality is here.

A ban is in order. Obvious trolling is unacceptable.

Let's start by banning "progressives" like you.

I wasn't even addressing you. Stop trying to start arguments.

Well, every time you and the rest of the intolerant "progressives" on this board suggest banning conservatives for daring to disagree with you, you ARE addressing me.  Because like many conservatives here, I fear that I am going to be next.

Uhm, I said CountryClassSF should be banned because he is obviously trolling, not because he is a conservative. It's a message board, it's not even that serious, so calm down. This is not life and death.

You just don't want someone with different views than you to be able to speak.

Distinguish between gays and gay marriage here, in addition: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2996384/posts?page=43#43

You are a troll.

Please straightsplain to me what a gay person should say. Yes, I'm not out at FreeRepublic because yes, they don't accept out gays. Happy?

The question is, are you putting on a show there or putting on a show here? I think you are putting on a show here.

The Supreme Court of the country formerly known as the United States of America has overruled God, usurped their authority as impartial jurists, and rewrote three laws this week to match with their ideological crusade.  

It is APPALLING that two justices who are ACTIVELY supporters of the entirety of the gay agenda, and have PERFORMED same-sex weddings, were able to cast a vote today.

There is no hope - it is all over. We no longer have a republic, or even a democracy. We are ruled by black-robed ideological radicals, with support from corporate America, Hollywood, and the "news" media.

I'm afraid that very soon, they will soon go after the churches and start imposing penalties on those who refuse to perform unions they have a moral disagreement with. Justice  Alito warned of pending vilification.

Go to Somalia if you don't like it. No taxes, no regulations and most certainly no same sex marriage.

They can't mess with AZ-3 and AZ-7 that much, both have to be majority Hispanic and it doesn't look like this map maintains that. If Republicans mess with the VRA seats, the map would just end up in court and the old one would end up being used again in 2016.

Climate change denial is all about corporate bottom lines and corporations give big campaign contributions. Corporations could make more money without environmental regulations, but public health would be worse for it.
49  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President of Spokane NAACP outed as white imposter on: June 17, 2015, 03:28:27 pm
Skin color and culture are two different things. I haven't seen any scientific evidence that one can be born genetically predisposed to identify with one culture more than another. Culture is something that is learned after birth, and is shaped by upbringing, as well as regional issues. Not every person born with black skin is going to identify with black culture, it all depends on how they were raised. The culture you identify with has nothing to do with genetics, it's all about upbringing. At some point, Rachel Dolezal decided that she wanted to identify with black culture and chose to do so.
50  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Democratic Tea Party on: June 17, 2015, 03:16:32 pm
Until there are Democrats criticizing every single stance elected Democrats hold and demanding near total ideological purity, there is no Democratic Tea Party. This is about one issue and the Tea Party griped about a whole host of issues. Concerns about how trade will impact jobs are legitimate and I'm glad my member of Congress voted no.
