1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 3 hours in - grade Hillary's campaign thus far on: April 12, 2015, 07:33:32 pm
D-

First off, her camapign was made official by Jon Podesta in an exclusive email. WTF is that? The video came too late and was lacking in inspiration.

Secondly, that campaign logo is hideous.

She's done everything short of blow up at a reporter.

Given the current state of the US congress, nobody is better off politically for being a part of it. She got out while the getting was good.
3  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Describe the likely political views of the previous hypothetical person on: April 02, 2015, 03:11:19 pm
Republican but maybe votes Democrat at times.

Education level: Bachelor's degree
Religion: Hindu
Occupation: Software engineer

He lives in Gale Ranch or Windermere, and is a registered Pub who voted for Obama.



OK, so I have to put something up. OK here then:

Race: White
Personal Income: $250,000/year
Education level: MBA, JD
Religion: Near atheist WASP
Occupation: Attorney

4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Hillary win Harris County, TX? on: April 02, 2015, 09:31:35 am
It's quite possible. Bill White won Harris in 2010 while losing the Governor's race by 12 points. Obama won Harris (albeit by 0.07%) while losing the state by nearly 16 points in 2012. If Hillary is landsliding, she could probably carry Harris by 8-10 points.

The only person he has to outlast is Walker, who has already said plenty of dumb things and will be at a serious financial and infrastructural disadvantage.

It's Jeb's to lose at this point.
7  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Hypothetical Indiana Republican Senatorial Primary, 2016 on: March 31, 2015, 03:26:20 pm
Lugar (enthusiastically). Daniels wouldn't be bad either.

I know she loses Massachusetts...
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scenario: Joe Biden wins it all 2016 on: March 30, 2015, 08:10:07 am
If Biden wins, it means the Republican was so awful that I probably voted for him. So...Yay?
11  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted in the preceding election? on: March 30, 2015, 08:01:45 am
George Bush

12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Atlas Political Compass: Question 1 on: March 30, 2015, 12:47:49 am
Trans-national corporations are run by humans for the benefit of humans, as such they are a part of "humanity". If you don't draw that conclusion, then where do you draw the line on which human institutions constitute "humanity"?

I voted disagree because the question is loaded.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: How would you replace/fix ObamaCare? on: March 29, 2015, 04:49:39 pm
I would abolish Obamacare and nationalize the health insurance industry, either under "Medicare for all" or some new universal public option entirely. It would be funded by a slight increase in payroll taxes across the board and savings from the abolition of Medicaid. Finally, the new Medicare/Public Option would have a fixed fee schedule to stabilze the price of procedures.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Graham: global warming is real, but Al Gore politicized it on: March 28, 2015, 02:56:08 pm
Kudos to him for saying this, though. Speaking of turning it into religion, it is part of the GOP creed that you can no longer be taken seriously in the party (cept Mark Kirk) if you accept the science behind it.

The religion of climate change is entirely on the left. The skeptics are on the right.

In fact the climate argument is a reversal of religious arguments, where the left are the skeptics and the right the faithful.

Unlike Religion, climate change actually exists

Religion certainly exists. Do you mean God?
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Graham: global warming is real, but Al Gore politicized it on: March 27, 2015, 11:53:35 am
I agree with Graham on all counts, good on him.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Louie Gohmert: I might run for president on: March 26, 2015, 08:29:18 pm
He isn't even liked by tea party groups, he won't be allowed on the debate stage and his seat will opened up for a potty trained successor

This. Run Louie!
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Lindsey Graham on: March 26, 2015, 12:14:34 am
Massive FF
18  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of George Pataki on: March 25, 2015, 04:49:31 pm
overall ff.  wish there were a lot more republicans like him.
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Ted Cruz vs. Ben Carson on: March 25, 2015, 04:47:33 pm
With a gun to my head, Carson because at least his work in medicine is respectable.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why does Clinton need to chose a male running mate? on: March 25, 2015, 11:47:55 am
Who is arguing that? I haven't heard this brought up by anyone with any credibility.
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Rick Perry on: March 24, 2015, 10:44:56 am
My opinion mostly neutral. On his own merits he's an HP, but compared to the likes of Greg Abbott and Dan Patrick especially - he's a huge FF.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who is more conniving, unscrupulous and power hungry? on: March 24, 2015, 07:20:22 am
I highly doubt Clinton has personally murdered any journalists or gubernatorial candidates. I'll let you decide on whether that makes her more or less awesome.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Potential Running Mates for Cruz on: March 23, 2015, 09:16:49 pm
I could see him going the Obama route and picking an elder statesman to help cancel out his lack of experience (Cruz will also be running on 6 years of US Senate experience) and rebuild burnt bridges. Richard Burr maybe?
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 2016 Pick on: March 23, 2015, 09:03:12 pm
If Bolton doesn't run, I will support Graham and then Bush if that is not an option. I could also live with Walker as the nominee.

If the Republican nominee is Cruz, Huckabee, Santorum, or Perry - I will vote for Clinton in the general.
A Bolton supporter, is that a first?

Lol it's a possibility. He's the only pro-SSM neoconservative who is considering to my knowledge, so I'll stick with him until he says no or is otherwise out of the race.
25  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Markos Moulitsas on: March 23, 2015, 06:40:18 pm
I don't find liberal internet blowhards any more or less annoying than their right-wing counterparts.
