This election is pretty much like every other election this country has had since 1988. It is really ni better or worse than any of the elections that have happened since 1988.

Well it is a heck of a lot better than '88 or '04, in that the Democrat still has a slight edge in the odds.

Dukakis was way up 'round this time bro
That speaks little of his chances in that race though.

FF, because living there is only valuable for anecdotal evidence.

     You also get the benefit of a news focus relevant to the politics of the area. After all, how many people on Atlas know about Jean Quan's 100-blocks plan?

One could read as much news of another state as they ignore in their own.

No, as evidenced by his campaign expenditures.

7685  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: What will be the closest state on: July 21, 2012, 06:24:50 pm

Yes but I also think the trends in this particular state couldn't be clearer.

The thing is that there could be a strong trend away from Obama and he could still win. He won it by 14 while winning nationally only by 7 so there is a lot of room for the trend to occur and not flip the state. I don't think the state flips unless Obama loses by about 2-3 points.

Im not saying it will flip though, and Ohio could end up closer than I expect as well.

Mr. VP- I'd appreciate a reply to my earlier inquiry when you get a chance....

There is no potential military conflict, Senator.

Somewhat approve - I like the decisions he has made on issues thus far but seldom agree with his rationales for doing so, and am slightly put off by the lack of policy dialogue between himself and I through private channels this month. I am optimistic, however, about the rest of his term in office.

A lot of that is due to the Senate being busy with amendments and setting up committees- decisions I have no say in. I have only had a full Cabinet for one day so far.
7692  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Power to Parents Act (Debating) on: July 21, 2012, 02:10:52 pm
Just to be clear I would veto this bill with or without Senator Scott's amendment. I am not very enthusiastic about making this an even more expensive proposal.

7694  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Power to Parents Act (Debating) on: July 21, 2012, 01:35:59 pm
Perhaps we could come up with a compromise, and give local communities the incentive to adopt this policy, rather than a mandate?

Though I must say, I am also uncomfortable with gutting the Go Green Fund.

I don't see any reason why we should offer incentives.
7695  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Power to Parents Act (Debating) on: July 21, 2012, 11:48:52 am
Shouldn't this be mandated at the regional or even local level?

Yes and the Northeast already allows this.
7696  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Power to Parents Act (Debating) on: July 21, 2012, 11:27:21 am
I can't even think of how this bill could be amended to get my signature.

Eliminating the Go Green Fund is out of the question.

Mandating local school districts to take on this policy is also inappropriate.

I can't stand by the removal of the community as a partner in education that this bill would bring about.
7697  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: The Less Than HONORable Service Preclu...Benefits Act (OTPD) on: July 21, 2012, 11:22:19 am
I have vetoed this bill.

Here is my redrafted version:
Quote
The Less Than HONORable Service Preclusion of Benefits Act

1- This act may be known as the HONOR Act

2- Atlasians who receive a Bad Conduct Discharge (BCD) from the military hereby forfeit all VA benefits, or other benefits available solely to veterans from the federal government, except those benefits provided in cases of disability.

3- A clause indicating such must be present on the enlistment document and acknowledged by the enlistee with his or her signature.
7698  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The White House- Napoleon/Kalwejt Administration on: July 21, 2012, 11:21:57 am
Mr. President,

The Less than HONORable Service Peclusion of Benefits Act has passed the Senate and is presented for your signature or veto.

Senator NC Yankee,
Senate President Pro-Tempore.

I am vetoing this bill.

An Other Than Honorable discharge is not necessarily dishonorable, and should not result in losing the benefits a member worked hard to earn. Wealthy CEOs get fired for fraud with a $5 million package, but a soldier makes a mistake and loses everything? I can't support that.

Iowa or Virginia. If Romney wins WI then he's already past 270.

Obviously, re the last part.  You'd pick WI if you think the election would be a big Romney win.

I picked it but I don't think Mitt will have more than 280-290 EVs.
