How has the Liberal Party assumed the role of the JCP?

Dominant left-of-center party, some libertarians/right wingers.

There is no way this is scientifically valid. You have no category for people who like it and are over 23, or those who are under 23 and dislike it. Your results are predetermined, yes?

If he lives in Arkansas of all places and votes for Republicans at the state level it's tough to imagine him voting for Obama.

But he's a hispanic teacher.

11888  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Gay Marriage Bill To Be Introduced In Rhode Island on: May 15, 2012, 07:18:07 pm
Quote
PROVIDENCE, R.I.—Rhode Island's governor on Monday declared that the state will recognize same-sex marriages performed elsewhere, giving gay couples the same rights as heterosexual ones when it comes to health insurance and a slew of other benefits.

The executive order signed by Gov. Lincoln Chafee in a Statehouse ceremony directs state agencies to recognize marriages performed out of state as legal and treat same-sex married couples the same as heterosexual ones.

Some gay couples married outside Rhode Island -- where civil unions are allowed, but gay marriage is illegal -- have not been afforded certain rights because state law is not clear on the subject.

In 2007, then-Attorney General Patrick Lynch issued an opinion in favor of recognizing out-of-state same-sex marriages, but it was nonbinding. Chafee said his signing of the executive order is "following through" on that opinion.

Quote
Chafee called his order an important step but said he would continue to press for Rhode Island to enact gay marriage.

"We're overdue, way overdue," he said.

Chafee said President Barack Obama's announcement last week that he now supports gay marriage is positive momentum.

But he said he did not expect gay marriage to pass in Rhode Island this legislative session.

John Thune best fits the description they're looking for, but I really, really, REALLY wanna see Paul Ryan get it.

"The children of citizens of the United States that may be born beyond the sea, or outside the limits of the United States, shall be considered as natural-born citizens of the United States."--First Congress of the United States, 1790. His parents were American citizens from Utah, they was born in Utah, and they fled Mexico in 1912 to come back to the US. George Romney was born a US citizen.

Still, what about with Mitt? Does the fact that only his mother was a natural born citizen effect him? Like, only Obama's father was born in the US, so does the same apply to Mitt? Or does he get a pass because his grandparents were born here?

I say we extradite him. Tongue

On a note more related to the topic, did the elevator door literally close on Dubya?

Likely not.

Something more like he looked up with a twinkle in his eye, said "I'm for Mitt Romney" in a slightly-raspy southern drawl, then the doors dramatically closed.

Things are about the same and have not been successful. The Liberal Party has assumed the role of the JCP, the Labour is the UDL, the Whig is the RPP and the IB is basically SPA.

No. I've never understood why people want to merge the two most left-wing regions together and the two most right-wing regions together. Population doesn't cause competition; ideological diversity does.

I have been trying to get this point across during this whole debate but no one will listen.
People would flee the megaregion out of boredom and you'd have 20to states with only 20the people.

This is the only caveat.
