Comparable, maybe slightly further left? My are is quite left-leaning, so it's hard to compare.

I guess Trump dumped his man of the people's shtick and is instead governing like a normal Republican. SAD!

Chrome. Tend to flip between that and Firefox though. Only use Safari on my phone, I'm a Microsoft man wrt computers.

I hope so. Makes more sense than a long-shot run at the Presidency, anyway.

Too early to call. I don't think Mandel or Tiberi are strong enough candidates to knock him off in a year I expect to be D-leaning, though. Could be well off though, at this stage we're all just guessing no?
9  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Why does Oklahoma have so many registered democrats? on: January 16, 2017, 07:24:09 am
The state doesn't appear to have an ancestral democratic domination like many areas in the south, so why are there so many registered democrats there?
The simplest explanation is the rule of party registration itself. Most of the South don't have party registration, Oklahoma (and Louisiana, which also has a very high amount of registered Democrats) do and therefore still have lots of registered Democrats who cbf changing their registration.

1. Ideally this should happen, but I don't think it's really feasiable in the modern world. And if forced to choose, in my eyes a human's life is more important than an animal's one.
2. Individuals who commit violent crimes are not necessarily evil, yes. Saying all criminals are evil is much too broad for my tastes.
3. Islam is not inherently more violent than other religions, but some interpretations are more violent which has caused a lot of the problems.
4. Tricky one. Depends on the issue, stuff like murder mostly violates common morality regardless of the culture, but some more minor things that we would consider moral/immoral may vary from culture to culture.
5. Not inherently superior, anyway.
6. Prejudice is pretty much always wrong.
7. For the most part our prosperity is significantly affected by factors outside our control. It can differ, though.
8. Didn't vote as it depends on the circumstances.
9. Depends on the country. In an American context I think multiculturalism is more desirable as its "culture" is mostly a mix of other cultures, and in any case I find cultural diversity something worth celebrating. Could differ in a country with a more "defined" culture, though.
10. Religious people are not inherently hypocritical, at least not more so than irreligious people.
11. Tough to answer. But as I'm not religious or much of a traditionalist, I lean towards science/instinct. Can vary depending on the question, though.
12. Total equality is nice but probably unfeasiable. Most societies with "total equality" tend to be hellholes. That said, I think closing the gap between inequality is a crucial issue.
13. Not a great question, but if forced to choose, I'd go for the atheist option.
14. The distant past (like anything before about 1950 or whatever) does not seem a great place to live. We don't know with the future, and it would be cool to find out (if humanity still exists at that point)
15. Political parties and philosophies do not inherently make someone more moral than someone else, much as I like to joke about it.

If the next election is Zuckerberg vs. Trump America deserves to be nuked.

A phony and a fraud. Obvious HP vote is kinda obvious.
13  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Atlas Moral Acceptability Poll on: January 10, 2017, 10:26:53 am
Gay relations - acceptable, obviously.
Child outside of marriage - fine if it's the ase of an umarried couple that happens to be together. Probably not morally unacceptable if it's a single mother situation, but far from ideal and should be avoided.
Sex between unmarried people - acceptable
Divorce - acceptable
Medical research involving stem cells from human embryos - acceptable because of the advantages of it, creating live-saving opportunities should outweigh ethical concerns for it. I do agree though that it should be dumped if there is a better way.
Polygamy - acceptable in theory so as long as everyone involved in the relationship knows and understands. Probably less so in how it's practiced in real life, though.
Cloning humans - so as long as the person being cloned has consent and there are no risks of damage to the person I don't mind. Not an issue I can see really improving people's lives, though.
Doctor-assisted suicide - I think in the issues that would necessitate euthanasia/DAS (such as terminal illness or lots of pain and suffering) it's justified. Probably shouldn't be used in normal circumstances though.
Suicide - didn't vote, not really either morally acceptable or unacceptable. This is almost always a tragic and regrettable thing for the family though.
Gambling - acceptable. I do agree the risk gambling addiction is a massive issue, but in the same way as alcohol addiction is rather than a moral right or wrong sort of thing.
Abortion - acceptable if the mother's health is at risk, or if the embryo is unviable/too young to survive. Unacceptable if it is.
Cloning animals - here I lean unacceptable. I'm not convinced of the benefits of cloning, and unlike humans you can't really have consent here.
Animal fur - tough. Voted unacceptable if it's as a result of an animal killed for its fur. Acceptable if its from an animal which is already dead and wasn't trapped in cage like conditions for its whole life. Again lean unacceptable on the whole.
Affairs - unacceptable, naturally. Is an affair with consent really an affair? I don't think so.
Death penalty - unacceptable. AFAIC you don't have the right to kill someone no matter who you are or what you did. I don't believe in an eye for an eye.
Medical testing on animals - see stem cell research. The benefits are enough to outweigh the damage done to the animals in my eyes, though like stem cell research if there's a better way of doing it without damaging animals then doing medical testing on animals should be abandoned.

What even is the second one?
This. #atlasforum is usually a lot of fun whenever I go in there.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why are working class whites so often defined as "whites without a degree?" on: January 08, 2017, 05:39:02 am
"Working class" is a separate class from "blue collar"?
Well, there are blue collar people that are actually quite wealthy now. Tradies, for example.

Yes. I hung around a lot of "lads" in high schools.

Plenty. Cathcon, RFayette, DavidB, Goldwater, I could go on.

It probably was realistic to suggest 5 years ago that the Canadian Liberals were on a death spiral. Now look at them. So anything can happen.

Harsh on DavidB especially.

Nickname + first initial of my surname.

First used it on Stick Cricket of all things, and it has stuck since then.

There are dateable girls on Atlas ?

Huh

Fortunately they are beyond your reach Smiley

Yeah, that's a shame.

These women are missing out on something: In fact, I'm a very gentle and thorough lover.

English, did French at High School but I only really know a few phrases.
23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Chances of taking Tom Cotton down in 2020 and Marco Rubio down in 2022 on: December 31, 2016, 05:42:10 am
Cotton's chances of losing is somewhere near zero. I just can't see how Democrats can compete in Arkansas by 2020.

Rubio would be rather vulnerable with Trump in a second term, less so with an incumbent Democrat. Too early to say.
24  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Describe the political views of the previous hypothetical person - Int'l Edition on: December 30, 2016, 08:40:17 pm
I suggest he would vote for KAP, but I have to admid that I don't really know a lot about the demographic structure of political parties in Australia.

Age: 30
Gender: Female
Education: degree in law
Occupation: prosecutor
Location: Braunschweig, Lower-Saxony, Germany
Religion: Evangelical
Family: married
Given his location voting for Katter makes perfect sense IMO.

Anyway, for your one I'd say CDU.

Age: 49
Gender: Female
Education: None completed
Occupation: Office Manager

Religion: None
Family: Married, 3 kids but none to current husband
