7677  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Make a map of the previous six posters as three tickets on: August 12, 2012, 11:35:32 pm
Governor Nix/Senator Goldwater- 341 EV and 44.3% PV
Senator Miles/Senator Realisticidealist- 21 EV and 18.9% PV
Secretary of State Cathcon/Representative Supersonic- 176 EV and 35.6% PV




Governor Nix barely wins the primary over Senator Miles. The primary takes a libertarian vs. populist turn, and Nix doubles down by selecting Goldwater as a runningmate. Senator Miles, angry with the Democratic ticket, walks out of the convention with supporters behind him and announces an Independent bid with a socially conservative and economically left wing platform that attempts to attract Southern whites and working class voters. The Republicans counter by nominating the likable Secretary of State Cathcon, but with his success in foreign policy, he loses some of the social conservative vote to Miles.

Nix successfully portrays himself as a moderate Democrat and attacks the Republican ticket as too right wing. The attacks are a success, with Senator Miles support mostly concentrated in formerly Democratic states that are typically Republican now.

Is the preceding poster a self parody

This.

I don't understand why a moderator of all people would make such a thread. This is literally nothing positive that can come from that thread.

Implying the mods are morally upstanding.

What the heck is a "self-parody" anyways?

Implying that they should be, actually.

Thank you Senator Scott. This amendment can help ease people out of long term unemployment and reliance on the state. I believe that as a package, this bill can bring about positive change to our economic state.

My administration would like to ensure that employers may not discriminate based on current employment status. Does the Senate think that could work its way into this bill?

Employment discrimination on account of anything is already illegal, if I'm not mistaken.

Quote
4. There shall be no discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, political affiliation, religious affiliation, marital status, or veterans' status in membership to unions or employment, except where a government-issued waiver is granted for special circumstances, including, but not limited to: political organizations or work requiring certain attributes or skills.

That isn't included in the Worker's Bill of Rights Act.

I introduced a land value tax in the most recent budget. A land value tax is a tax on the unimproved value of land.The Northeast has no real property tax.


There is at the local level, I believe.

Hm, well that much I tried pointing out well over a year ago.
7688  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The SoEA is back and have something important to say on: August 12, 2012, 01:19:52 pm
Hagrid raises a very valid point. While it's good to have a SoEA who cares about his job, it's probably not the smartest idea if the SoEA starts making up stories which cast a positive light on himself and the entire administration. I think this should be left up to the GM, who is much more objective and neutral on such matters. I mean, if this kind of thing becomes widespread, what prevents me - or any other Governor for that matter - from claiming that I reduced the unemployment rate to 1%?

Who said only the SoEA was involved with this story? Do you know the law?
7689  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The SoEA is back and have something important to say on: August 12, 2012, 12:55:35 pm
Very commendable that such a nearly impossible and farfetched series of events was able to happen for our liberal-controlled, fictional country! Smiley

Obviously your party knows the way: start a nuclear war with Iran and see what happens.

I think its your worldview that is unrealistic, not the fact that we are reaching out to a nation that could be a threat if we continue this Cold War style dick measuring contest.

Sjoyce puts Israel before America and is willing to sell out to conservative social views.

And here I was thinking the consortium that would attempt to deny me the Presidency would include AIPAC, the Presidents' Conference, the Christian Coalition and Focus on the Family.

Against me?

I would run on a more culturally liberal platform with an emphasis on the environment and foreign policy. The map would have similarities with Obama vs. Hillary, except Lief would win the black vote and I would talk the Jewish vote, with young voters splitting a bit more evenly.



Coincidentally, a 269-269 EV tie, not that that is relevant in a Democratic primary. I am not sure who would win the delegate math in this scenario.
7694  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Good Neighbor Resolution (Debating) on: August 12, 2012, 01:33:56 am
I cannot support this.  It makes it to easy for a small group of Senators to hold up the Senate and attack their political opponents.

It is already easy for a single Senator to do that. There are solutions for that.

Uh, would you care to elaborate on just how a single Senator under current rules may do that in any fashion similar to what this proposal risks unleashing?

Of course not. I don't want to give anyone any "ideas".
7695  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: Make up a map between you and the preceding poster. on: August 12, 2012, 01:28:19 am
Governor Goldwater Republican of Washington: 272 EV and 49.8% PV
Governor Napoleon of Connecticut: 266 EV and 48.8% PV



Governor Napoleon builds a strong coalition of young voters, educated professionals, and minority voters, but Governor Goldwater successful courts older Independent voters with his socially moderate stances.

The closest state is Pennsylvania.

Also is there any data we can get from the GM that shows the optimal marijuana tax where we will make the most revenue without users moving back to a black market and pay no taxes?

0%, considering the federal tax rates on marijuana.

This pick is lunacy. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a hack, a troll, an idiot, or the Republican presidential nominee. Most likely all four.

Fixed it! Grin

I wouldn't go that far. For example, they'd probably be equally likely to be the Republican vice presidential nominee. So no way can they also be most likely the Republican presidential nominee.

If Ryan thinks he is such a good pick, he doesn't need to run for the House.

Whoa, dude.
First of all, congratulations and good luck.

But......you are one of our most reasonable and intelligent posters. I don't recall ever seeing a post of yours that was rude or seemed lacking in thought.

Guess you will have to pick a new team though. Tongue
