We need an impartial moderator.

Most rich Wall Streeters and Ivy Leaguers are Democrats, so Romney is seen as a traitor to his class.

Speaking of Wall Streeters, I saw on one of the financial news channels recently a Wall Streeter who said the reason Obama in 2008 got so much Wall Street money was the hate and fear Wall Street had for Sarah Palin.  These people are not stupid, so they could not be distracted by the MSM themes about Palin's pregnant daughter or $150,000 wardrobe.  No, they read up on how Palin as Alaska Governor instituted strict government ethics laws and pounded Big Oil on taxes and the natural gas pipeline.

Most "Wall Streeters" are Republicans, through and through.

Election results from Manhattan would seem to belie that statement.

And my father, and all his friends, and so on.

If you elect all of your regional legislators at the same time, you could consider the Northeast's solution to the electoral competitiveness problem: Grant the title of Lieutenant Governor to the legislator receiving the most votes in the prior election.

This doesn't work well if you have a large set of responsibilities and powers in mind, but if you're most interested in having someone to take the Governor's place in case of absence or resignation, it's an effective way of dealing with the situation.
The Speaker assumes Governorship if the Governor resigns or disappears, so that's already taken care of.

Then you have no Speaker.

We could also build a new capital designed on the principles of New Urbanism.

Strongly support.

It is strange that both Clarence's and Oakvale's running mates did not show up to vote in the regional elections. Shout out to Clarence and Tweed for doing their part.

I think that turnout was roughly close to what it usually is for local elections here.

The special election to replace wormyguy had better turn out.

This is a better approach than banning automobiles. Wink

I wonder: Were those the same four people?

Anyway, it's a bit sad that the actual election only attracted two more voters than your poll did. Any idea why turnout was so low?

Jerseyrules did not campaign. There wasn't much reason for either side to get out the vote.

Congratulations! Dominating!
7710  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: Northeast Election June 2012 on: June 18, 2012, 03:18:50 pm
Alrighty, official results.

Nix defeats Jerseyrules 12-4.

Simfan is elected to the Assembly with 5 votes and will be Lieutenant Governor.
Alfred Jones is elected with 4 votes.
PyroFox is elected with 3 votes.
Winfield is elected with 3 votes.
Mondale is elected with 2 votes.

I, Governor Napoleon, certify these results officially.

Alright guys, seeing as I've lost every gubernatorial election for a while here, (Wink) I'm announcing my move to the Mideast.  As the northeast is quite hostile to my conservative brand of libertarianism, I feel that the Mideast would give me a better chance of having my values heard.  This is not the end, but a new beginning, my friends.

Don't do that, you didn't debate early wnough. Try to run for the Assembly. Smiley
7712  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: Northeast Election June 2012 on: June 18, 2012, 08:29:03 am
Haha wow you're right so Simfan, congrats, you're LG, sorry everyone!

The Governor will be waiting to reach a decision for this bill.

I agree with the Speaker about our fiscal situation. I would prefer not to divert these funds away. I understand Representatives concerns about the social cost of gambling though I have not formed a very strong opinion either way. If I sign this bill, it will be conditional on a future amendment creating a new tax to fund these programs instead of moving around funds already dedicated to other programs and needs.

So, let us have fun during this lame duck session. Convince me.

7717  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: Northeast Election June 2012 on: June 18, 2012, 12:15:38 am
Speaker Averroes Nix is elected Governor. PyroFox, Winfield, Alfred Jones, and Simfan are reelected to the Assembly, joined by newly elected Mondale84.

I broke the tie for Lieutenant Governor between Alfred Jones and Simfan, with four votes each, by counting the second preferences of the other candidates. This is my interpretation of "receiving the most votes". Alfred Jones will be Lieutenant Governor, and open the new legislative session on Thursday.

Congratulations to the winning candidates and thank you for voting. It has truly been a pleasure to serve as your Governor.

P.S. See, even with only five Assembly candidates, I designed this constitution to still give us a possibility for a competitive election!

I feel bad that these candidates are expected to shovel all this unhealthy food down their throats while running for the most stressful job in the world. Its like we're trying to give them heart attacks or something.

It can't be that stressful. Bush took the entire month of August 2001 off, and ignored all the memos titled "Bin Laden determined to strike in the US".

Really stretching to work that in, aren't we?  Candidates.

Read the bolded clause. Besides, isn't he half-joking?

Reminds me of Bush Senior being impressed with the check-out counter scanners back in ancient times.  Men who have never had to buy anything for themselves.

That's an urban myth.

While a forum where a good 30% of the members have never so much as kissed a girl and need The Professor to give them dating tips might not be the obvious place to look for help on this, but Lief's advice is more or less the way to go, yeah.

Remember, if you do follow Lief's advice and dump your current girlfriend, there'll be some people who say it's wrong, or even cowardly to do so and then avoid confrontation. That's not true at all - there's nothing wrong with running away from your problems as long as they don't catch up to you. Wink

PS: It's not a lie if you believe it.

Well, I guess rural whites voted Democrat more often back then.

Or black turnout in 2008 was exceptionally high (the correct answer).

NY Jew is in denial that most Jews are Democrats.

7724  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Democrats need to stop teasing us with universal healthcare on: June 17, 2012, 02:34:23 pm
Anyway, my point is that Phips would have been right in 1853 and is probably right now. The Whigs never did get more than a tease of abolition, the party collapsed under its own weight because of the issue. The political process never did allow abolition, it took war and secession, something you wont get over health care. The Democrats squandered a great opportunity in 2009 and the watery Obamacare is probably the best we can get. Thank people like Joe Lieberman and Diane Feinstein.

Squishy Democrats like that exist because of other voters of your stripe.

Lol what is that supposed to mean?
