If the government would cut the defense budget, the deficit would go down. Republicans, generally, don't want to do that. They want to increase defense spending.

The thing I like least about Fox news is that they can't even admit their own bias.
The more I watch Fox news the less I am inclined to agree with them. They do a far
better job of creating an anti-Fox bias than anybody else.

Who has more power? Congress or the President?
You can't give the President all the blame or all the credit.
During 6 of 8 years George W Bush had a Republican Congress.
Are Republicans willing to accept blame for all the bad things that happened in those years?
Republicans have not exactly been helpful to Obama during his two terms.
They have pretty much wanted him to fail from day one.

What is the source of this image?

Probably the best president we've ever had when it comes to personal decency. Massive FF.
I agree. He is definitely a great person and model of virtue. I think he wanted to be a peacemaker, and that is important to me.

What about FDR? Some people thought/think he was a socialist. Given the conservative nature of the country at the time he was first elected, was he any less progressive than Sanders?

The meaning of life is to go west, haha. Even though the eastern states have more electoral votes  (308-230)

Well, it never made sense to me to have two separate lines, one for title and another for the question. Although, maybe it would make more sense to put the exact same words in each line.

Are we voting on whether the topic's message is an FF or an HP or whether bullies are FFs or HPs?

Whether bullies are FFs or HPS.
10  Forum Community / Forum Community / Mean people suck on: Today at 11:50:28 am
Maybe this poll is a stupid idea, maybe not. People can be so cold, so I couldn't help wondering what people thought about this topic.
11  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of darthebearnc on: Today at 10:41:57 am
Some people tend to dislike others who share different views. Dathebearnc is a Sanders supporter and it wouldn't surprise me if some people hold that against him.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: What will change from 2012 to 2016 on: Today at 10:39:35 am
Too soon for an accurate prediction but I said FL more R and NV more D and the rest the same.

My guess before the 2012 was FL would go Romney, but I got all the remaining states correct, not a very difficult election to predict.

I was going to post in your thread, but I decided not to because it said that I should start a new thread, which of course I did. If you or someone else want to post the superior map that would be great.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Comparison of 1976 and 2012 on: Today at 10:29:50 am
I don't want to be arrogant, but my map is better, because it is divided in four parts, not only three. If you want to continue discussing this topic, you can up this following thread

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=206492.0


Actually, your map is better. I only did it the way I did to keep it simpler.
15  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of darthebearnc on: Today at 10:17:20 am
100% great guy. I hope you won't let the negativity in this thread bother you darthebearnc, because you have unpopular views and many people here are very cruel.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Backing Jeb is the dumbest thing the GOP establishment can do on: August 29, 2015, 12:42:33 pm
Yes, Rubio or Carson could be the ones to watch if Bush doesn't catch on, but Trump could remain in the race until California unless someone emerges as the best alternative. Has he topped at around 25-30%? That's the question, because he may need to do better than that to get the nomination. If things don't change dramatically before the convention it is possible that nobody will have a majority of the delegates. It is way to soon to predict something like that because things will change as more and more candidates drop out early in 2016. I would hate to see a Bush-Clinton race. But if Trump runs as an independent he could still make it an interesting election. If he were to get any electoral votes at all (as an independent) it would be a very small number.

The states that went to different parties in 1976 and 2012 are in green; this demonstrates how different the map is today. Of course, Bill Clinton won quite a few southern states, but most of them will be hard for a Democrat to win in the future.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / If you haven't made up your mind on which candidate is closest to you. on: August 28, 2015, 02:27:44 pm

This is a horrible test and I give it an F.
It asks all the wrong questions.
Zero questions on defense spending and other foreign policy
questions, but it asks about minor issues like pot and animal rights.
Duh
But the results are ok in spite of that so it
is a good test to take, to get an general idea of where
the candidates are on the issues.
The main difference is that I would way support
Chaffe over Clinton because of their respective Iraq War Votes.
Bush and Trump are my least favorite candidates.

my results:

 1 Ideal Candidate 100%
 2 Bernie Sanders   95%
 3 Joe Biden        84%
 4 Martin O'Malley  80%
 5 Hillary Clinton  76%
 6 Lincoln Chaffe   66%
 7 Jim Webb         63%
 8 George Pataki    50%
 9 Rand Paul        16%
10 Chris Christie   15%
11 John Kasich      13%
12 Jeb Bush         12%
13 Bobby Jindal     10%
14 Lindsey Graham    9%
15 Rick Perry        6%
16 Donald Trump      4%
17 Ben Carson        4%
18 Carly Fiorina     3%
===============
all the rest zero per cent

19 Mike Pence       
20 Marco Rubio
21 Ted Cruz
22 Scott Walker
23 Rick Santorum
24 Mike Huckabee

Of course, I don't agree with him on the issues, but he seems like a credible candidate and I wouldn't be surprised to see him rise in the polls and maybe win a state or two. By comparison to other candidates I could see why people would vote for him. He may be the candidate most likely to beat expectations. He is very conservative however, which may be his biggest liability.
20  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Should Spanish be an official language in the US? on: August 27, 2015, 05:41:41 pm
Keep official languages a state-by-state thing. More bilingual education should be pursued, though.
I tend to agree, but like a lot of issues it could be decided by the voters and not the politicians.
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Is "vote trading" ethical or legal? on: August 27, 2015, 05:38:12 pm
I am wondering if anyone has an opinion of so called "vote trading". It was talked about during the 2000 election. If you were a Nader supporter in a swing state you would agree to vote for Gore if a Gore supporter in a safe state agreed to vote for Nader. Of course, there are variations on this theme. A Democrat and Republican could agree to vote for a third party or independent because otherwise they would be cancelling out each other's vote.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Atlas 3 way poll (fixed) on: August 27, 2015, 05:29:58 pm
Right now Lynn Sandra Kahn looks like a possibility.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton compares pro-lifers to terrorist groups on: August 27, 2015, 03:18:14 pm
I can't believe anyone on this forum is actually defending what she said. They're probably the same people who gave sh*t to Walker for comparing unions to terrorists.

Yes, politicians say stupid things. Is anyone surprised? Is this something new?
24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton compares pro-lifers to terrorist groups on: August 27, 2015, 02:24:12 pm
Let's not forget anti-abortion people use some pretty strong hyperbole as well. sometimes anyway
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton compares pro-lifers to terrorist groups on: August 27, 2015, 02:21:04 pm
I think that she is just telling Democrats many of whom are "pro choice", what they want to hear. She is being a typical politician. Anyway, for the record, here is what she said,

"Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don't want to live in the modern world, but it's a little hard to take from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States," Clinton said. "Yet they espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward, we are not going back."
