Option 4 is really, really racist. So that one.

I'm sorry, but stating a fact, even if its wrong, is racist? That's like saying most Rednecks are white. Is that racist?

Anyway, I would probably choose 4 as well as Its probably false and totally stereotypes blacks. The election one with independent "swing" voters is pretty bad too. 

Well, the term 'redneck,' if my history is correct, was originally used as a slur against working-class whites from rural areas, so all rednecks are 'white' by definition.  But assuming that most SNAP recipients are black without bothering to look at the statistics is pretty racist, even if unintentionally.

They want Obamacare.  Yes, the name has been successfully poisoned, but the constituent pieces always poll well.

Indeed.  Obamacare always does better when it has a different name.

Sadly, it's polls like this that make me question what kind of value policy polls have at all.

5582  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Idea: Electing all IDS Reps at once? on: September 21, 2013, 07:15:46 pm
thats a good idea, but we'd need to have the ballot very choked up with people.... But good concept anyways.

Good point.  Competitiveness is something to keep in mind.
5583  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Idea: Electing all IDS Reps at once? on: September 21, 2013, 07:11:12 pm
How would my fellow Southerners feel about electing all the IDS Reps all at once, rather than having Class A and Class B seats which tends to be confusing?

If there's good reason to stick to the status quo, I can support that, but I thought we should discuss the pros and cons of changing the system.

I don't even think the GOP will have ballot access by 2016.  They're better off forming a coalition with a legitimate party, like the Constitution Party.
5588  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Kerry vs Romney on: September 21, 2013, 06:48:33 pm
2004:


Romney/Ryan: 275
Kerry/Edwards: 263

(Ohio was really tough for me to guess in this scenario.)

2008:


Kerry/Edwards: 380
Romney/Ryan: 158

Jan Brewer and Obama don't strike me as a good pair. Remember the whole confrontation on the tarmac?



Yep.

Chris Christie seems to have a lot of personal respect for Obama.

Man, that flaming liberal Dick Cheney.  Why wasn't he out there seeking the Green nomination thirteen years ago?

I'm, um, not sure what makes me your main opponent as opposed to the other three likely candidates...


I haven't heard anything from other candidates, so I guessed you were my only opponent so far Tongue

Haha, okay.  I say this just because I don't view races for legislature as races where you campaign against other people, unless there's someone you really, really don't want to see elected. Tongue

Oh, sorry, I thought it was a two way so far... Anyways, my current opponent is the NMAM nominee...

A two-way for now, yes, because I think we are the only declared candidates so far.  If my understanding of our election laws is correct, three people will get elected to the legislature in November.

Hopefully I'm not misinterpreting those laws, because then I'd look like a total idiot.

This survey is open to all registered IDS voters and will run for three days.
5598  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Scott for IDS Legislature -- Campaign HQ (Little Rock, AR) on: September 21, 2013, 04:05:13 pm
On The Freedom of Empire Act

Sadly, there is very little on the floor of our legislature right now.  However, currently our representatives are debating one bill in particular, named The Freedom of Empire Act, which would extend voting rights to all Atlasians - even people who aren't registered in our region!

Allow me to say that if I were in the legislature right now, I would be a firm NAY.  While I admire the effort to reach out to people of other regions, I cannot in good conscious endorse a measure that would effectively allow non-citizens to dictate the laws of our region.  In the name of regional protection, we must oppose all attempts to extend voting rights to people other than registered Southerners.
