The Left Front hereby endorses JCL, a devoted socialist and ally of the Atlasian working class.

Go home Gabe, you're drunk.

Goddammit, it's 12-11-11! How about we vote for the next one of Vance or Custer to get a vote?

Easily the best current country leader.

8 (really 5 or 6, but apparently there was another Botha and another de Klerk). Botha, de Klerk, Mandela, Mbeki, and Zuma.

Also this has been over for about a day.

Can we get a general election, Dallas?

Dallas is a busy man, and he's demonstrated in the past that he doesn't produce these like rapidly, so just chill.

I hope that the negative tone the vast amount of my posts on the forum have had lately indicate I'm mainly here when I'm sleep deprived and pissed off because of my schedule. Take that as you wish. Thank God the semester's ending soon, though.

Huh. I thought that was just you being wacky. Sorry.
1683  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: do you support any abortion restrictions? on: April 17, 2014, 11:50:36 am
Yes.  I am prolife and oppose abortion except to save the mother's life.  Allowing abortion in cases of rape and incest sends the message to men that they can use women however they want sexually without consequence.  It essentially is the ultimate objectification of women. 

How is making a woman have her rapist's baby a punishment for the rapist and not the woman?

I created a commentary thread so that these discussions could take place there. Please direct this conversation there so that we can focus on the candidates.

One of my party's candidate's is on leave until Friday and another's activity is reduced because of the approach of Easter. If a party's chairman is going to operate in this as chairman as opposed to a candidate, I demand the right to provide a response to an attack on my members rather then let such stand unchallenged.

If you refuse to urge the participants to not cast such distracting aspersions and deny the right to defend my members against them, then how is this a debate and not a partisan sham?

Reince Priebus doesn't jump in because Chris Christie can't make it to a debate.

Amendment 60:52 is adopted.  We're missing one Senator for the current vote.

Was that vote not for 60:48?

My vote is open for purchase for anyone, yet I have received no monetary offers so far. I am about to close my doors to them and just vote however I want.

Ten thousand dollars and a threesome with SomebodyWhoExists and anyone else of your choosing.

Thank you for hosting this debate Nix.

As many of you know I'm a firm opponent in terms of government ran healthcare in RL. As such Yankees plan is a step in the right direction of restoring the free market. I could engage in explaining things like tort reform or reforming it into the original intent that Medicare/Medicaid the 60's progressives intended but healthcare is not my expertise and as such defer in supporting Yankees plan at this time.

So should the poor die on the streets? If not, what should we do with them? This is a legitimate question, by the way.

1695  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Study: Marijuana use dangerous to young peoples' brains on: April 16, 2014, 04:48:32 pm
I'd say poverty is a far more dangerous thing for the brains of our youth.  And yet the people screaming about marijuana are often the same ones that would just as soon put more children into poverty.

Priorities, people.  Marijuana makes poverty less miserable.  Fix poverty and marijuana will be less useful.

^^^This.

Drug abuse doesn't cause poverty. Poverty causes drug abuse.

Hello, friends! I don't have much time right now, but I'd like to state that I strongly oppose the RAPH Act for attempting to dismantle our public health care system, increasing out-of-pocket costs for Atlasian citizens and trying to stop the march of progress with regards to workers' rights (thank Dave we got that second part good and smashed). While my Southern friend and secret lover has said it much more eloquently than I, I would like to make it known that I will always stand behind the Atlasian worker against the forces of the political right that attempt to smash their secured rights at every turn. The people deserve the best care the Atlasian government provide, and to give them anything less is to shirk our duties as their representatives.

Also I will stop doing the iambic pentameter thing in the Senate after this election, so y'all will have a rest.

If loutful conduct's still prohibited
I think that I can find it in myself
To vote yes on this bill, good gentlemen.
1699  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1888 Conventions on: April 16, 2014, 10:11:58 am
How about we see how things play out in 1888, then run Vance/Custer in 1892. Vance dies in 1894, so they each get two years as President.

Nah, there may be better options.  Like Weaver Smiley

Or Vance. Imagine President Zebulon Vance.

Let's see how '88 goes.  What about Weaver/Custer in '92.  I could get behind that and then switch to Bryan/Teller in '96.

I think we can all agree that we're going to have Bryan/Somebody in '96, and Teller seems pretty cool. How about the Whigs merge with the People's Alliance and Destiny parties in '92 so we can sort this all out democratically instead of having two candidates running on the left, a situation which has had negative results for us in the past four elections? I'm not a fan of Weaver, and you're not a fan of Custer, so we probably shouldn't go with that. Perhaps Vance/Bryan in '92, no matter what happens this go-around?

Bryan would be unconstitutional in '92.

Is there an age limit on the Vice-Presidency? Now, it is true that Vance would die soon after Bryan's 34th birthday, but we could just have the Speaker of the House be acting President until Bryan turns 35, just like your series had Douglass be AP until Woodhull turned 35.
