Looks like Manchin needs a primary challenger! Smiley

Lol sure, go ahead and primary Manchin. A Democrat in West Virginia. See what happens.

This. There are much bigger fish to fry than jeopardizing the balance of power in the Senate because Manchin voted for Trump's cabinet nominees. Take out Flake and Heller while protecting the vulnerable Democrats first.

Ted Cruz comes close. I believe Cruz is the slightly lesser evil, because at least he has control over his emotions.

This process went on for almost a month. Dozens of names were suggested. The Assembly debated the names without much of an outcry. Why the outrage 72 hours before the election starts?

As a long standing citizen of the Northeast, and now the North it's great to see this level of dedication and service to the glorious region. You'll be missed in the North (soon to be named Franklin if my evil machinations work) but you'll be a great Senator in the North.

Thank you, Mr. President!

I would like to issue my own name endorsement...I'm standing behind one of my original name proposals that made it into the final 3...Atlantic Union.

in an election? It could be any election. Basically, which poster would you still support despite a huge ideological difference?

I could see myself voting for Goldwater, PiT, or Cathcon. Heck, I might even vote for someone like Reaganfan in a local election.

Also, this is part of why I didn't pick ExtremeRepublican as my desired running mate. Too extreme and establishment.

Breaking News: Eharding decides member of internet forum too extreme (yet somehow also too establishment) to be chosen as hypothetical running mate, will go back to drawing board.

Let's bring in our panel to discuss how this effects his electoral chances in 2020.

Unlike some here, I like governmental transparency.

Governmental transparency =/= compromising our national security by thinking the rules don't apply

-Agreed. That's why I voted Trump.

Your brand of trolling has grown increasingly exhausting lately.
114  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump Cabinet confirmation hearings **live commentary thread** on: February 13, 2017, 04:51:28 pm

That's not what the story says.  The story simply says that those four publicly say they're undecided, not that they're leaning for or against.  And as the story notes, Isakson and Scott never publicly commit to supporting a nominee before the confirmation hearing, so the fact that they're not committing this time either is a non-story.

Post amended.

Puzder in jeopardy. Four GOPers considering voting against him, according to sources.

I second the nomination of Minneapolis.  I'll see if we can book some local hardcore bands to play at the convention.

Now you're speaking my language. Husker Du, anyone?

It has to be in Fremont, I think, R2D2.

That being said, I nominate Portland, Oregon for the site of the Summer 2017 Labor convention.

Hello my fellow Northerners! It's been a while since we've last spoke.

I just wanted to make a brief statement reflecting on my tenure in the Northern Assembly.

When I was first elected to the Northern Assembly last October, I initially did not believe I would serve longer than that term, nor did I believe I would take the job seriously. After working with some wonderful colleagues including Mike Wells (who went on to become our Governor, and has done an incredible job in that office) as well as Maxwell, Drewmike, and JGibson, and Senator Scott, who has been my greatest political adviser and friend since I re-entered public service, I took my job seriously and focused on serving the Northern people to the best of my ability. I believe I have done that. With the help of Governor Wells, we passed massive economic revitalization measures to help get the North restarted after an economic downturn and activity crisis. We have also passed a few Constitutional amendments that will appear on this month's ballot that address voter integrity (lengthening the amount of time one must be registered in the North in order to vote) as well as any ties that may occur in the Assembly, which the Governor would be allowed to break. We have passed measures to improve protections for our environment, as well as for citizens of the North who may be discriminated against in the workplace, or in general. We have banned weapons from college campuses. We have done immeasurable amounts of good for this region--and I believe the next assembly, which will be composed of five assemblymen (this is truly another incredible feat) will only continue that trend.

It has been the honor of my career to serve as an Assemblyman for the North, and I hope I will be extended the opportunity to serve as your Senator.

I would like to extend my well wishes to Senator Clyde, who has done a wonderful job in spite of some personal struggles. I apologize to him if I came off as harsh during the recall petition process. I did not mean to insult him or belittle his struggles. I wish him the best moving forward.

Thank you all, once again.

On another note, here is a sample ballot for the elections this weekend. Feel free to look over it and let me know if you notice any errors!
