They also do this for Rand Paul. Takes about eight weeks to get them.

Why does he deserve a memorial?
You know this is an utterly stupid question.
Except it's not a stupid question.

Build a memorial for someone who deserves it, like actual murder victim Trayvonn Martin. No need to destroy the memorial though.

7  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Era of the New Majority on: April 24, 2015, 09:00:34 am
This timeline is so implausible it hurts. It almost makes me lose faith in humanity.


 Foxx wins with the widest margin, in a surprise to many, of any of the three top-ballot statewide Democrats, taking 51-45 with a third-party candidate atrophying some votes from Tillis to become the first black Democrat elected statewide in the South in history, and to Jesse Helms' old Senate seat no less. D+1, and the Senate is now tied 50-50 with the VP-elect serving as tiebreaker. NC now has two Democratic Senators for the first time in close to 50 years.

He's actually the second. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Wilder You would know that if you did research. Next time you write a political masturbation TL at least get some of your facts right.

And here we go again with the old "Jesse Helms was a racist" argument. I met someone who knew him and this is far from the truth. Just because someone opposes affirmative action (because you know it's racism in itself) and doesn't think MLK day should become a holiday (because you know when you make a federal holiday its not the most fiscally responsible thing, it doesn't matter who it's for) and is a white man from the south doesn't make him racist. And the "so-called" elevator incident, that was taken completely out of context. Helms being a racist is just a strawman used by the left to paint the GOP as the racists although they were the ones that fought for civil rights and to end slavery. At the same time they completely ignore Robert Byrd, KKK member and senator until five years ago.
Go back to writing weird timelines on AH.com.

Oh please, I know we like making Ike out to be a brilliant moderate to show how far the the current GOP was but JFK was about 100 times better than Ike.

Eisenhower sucked on civil rights, he only sent troops to little rock when his back was literally up against the wall. Ike did very little on civil rights, and actually held rather racist views whilst JFK was more liberal. Course Ike did more in domestic policy, he served for 8 years.

In regards to foreign policy can we stop making Ike out to be some cold war hippie-this is a guy who almost used nuclear weapons to protect a couple of rocks in Taiwan. Heck Ike launched the coup in Iran in 1953 which ultimately caused the whole sh**t storm in the reason (ike didn't know that though). Ike was also a shameless supporter of the CIA, and despite his military industrial speech i'd argue his actions merely sped up the cold war.

JFK did a great deal on foreign policy. Not only did he stand up for west berlin when it most needed it but he also helped to usher in a new relationship with Khrushchev. Everyone talks about Korea, when JFK passed the partial test treaty ban-the first of it's type in the cold war. He even began making moves towards an agreement with Cuba 
...after bringing the world much closer to WWIII than Ike ever did.

The comments are great.

i hope you run as a conservative. people are looking for a candidate that will address the issues we are having today. Illegal immigration, our economy, Obamacare, racism, our constitution is under attack, our military, political correctness, radical muslims in our country. All these have to do with conservative issues. If you run as Independent, then people might think youíre centrist, which for me donít stand for nothing, more of the establishment republican. I for one wonít vote for an Independent candidate. You will be associated with candidates like Ron Paul and for me Rand Paul isnt conservative candidate, there are some issues that concerns me.

Priscilla, I donít think having Romney on his side would mean a thing. Iím hoping Newt will come out in strong support. I also have a skeptical friend who will get behind Dennis wholeheartedly IF Glenn Beck (not particularly a favorite of mine though) backs him. He has been on Beckís show in the past.

Why should Paul be present? We all know he is going to vote against more funds anyway. Try harder.

No, he absolutely should be opposed... by a LaRouchite.
LaRouche is from NH. Maybe he should pull a reverse Scott Brown.

17  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: on election day 2004... on: April 22, 2015, 09:45:06 pm
I went to bed thinking Kerry would win. Kerry conceded sometime mid-morning the next day but being in high school I was in class and obviously couldn't just look it up on my phone in 2004. I think I was in the computer lab in the afternoon when I read about the concession. Strange how "slow" information moved back then...
Hell, I found out Qaddafi had been killed the same exact way and that was 2011 Tongue. I remember pulling up a giant image of his bloodied face and immediately clicking out because I was a nervous freshman afraid of getting in trouble for being off task in computers class.

I just assumed Bush would win because he was President. I had no idea 2004 was as close as it actually was until 2008 Tongue.

Both were gross. I'd actually vote for 1970's NYC judging by the tales I've heard from my dad about South Florida in the '80s.

More of a Faragefan myself. I'm sure we have some Bennettbuddys here too.
