26  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: MA-SEN: Warren running for re-election on: January 07, 2017, 02:24:45 am
Good, I like to consider myself a Warrenite Democrat, so having Elizabeth Warren stick around is great.

The one who enjoyed waving his... hands at people.

Mormons seem to be at the expected percentage, and of course they're probably centered in the states you'd expect them to be in.
29  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Democratic intraparty runoff; CA-46 2016: Who would you have voted for? on: January 06, 2017, 02:19:10 am
I'd vote for the progressive candidate, especially since he'll bring a bit more Asian representation to Congress if elected.
30  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: MA-08: Brianna Wu running against Lynch in 2018 Democratic primary on: January 05, 2017, 02:49:40 am
I'd be in favor of Wu, but I wouldn't be too broken up if Lynch wins. It's Massachusetts, Democrats there are pretty good compared to Democrats in a lot of other places.

I would like more union folks in Congress anyway though. There are far too few of them these days.

Votes against lynch even though he's not a conservative dem, or third way dem :/

I guess if I could trade Lynch for another union man in another district, that'd be what I would prefer. I dunno. I don't really have strong feelings about this race.

Holtzman, very happily.

Which is the one whose antics didn't spawn the term "banana republic"? Or were both involved?

Complicated.

I'll pick the liberal Democrat for $500, Alex.
36  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of pro-Putin leftists on: January 01, 2017, 10:53:24 pm
Crimea is Russian territory, and all these sanctions against Russia was ridiculously, while we ignore, fascists in the Ukrainian Government. All this hate of Russia, coming from the democrats is utterly ridiculous, especially when it comes to a point in where we're trying to start Cold War II.

Putin is awful, and Russian imperialism, homophobic laws, and a government that favours oligarchs and the rich, and is insanely corrupt is godawful. Put in is horrible, so pro-Putin leftists are misguided and idiotic.

No, Crimea is Ukrainian territory. And claiming Ukraine's government has fascists is rich when there's xenophobic, homophobic authoritarians running around in power in Russia.

He's extremely annoying, like the rest of the TYT crowd. No thanks.
38  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: NC 2016 Gubernatorial Discussion Thread on: January 01, 2017, 03:43:31 pm
FWIW, Buck Newton also conceded to Josh Stein for AG today.

The only statewide candidate yet to concede is Chuck Stuber, who trails Beth Wood for Auditor by 5,993 votes.

So the NC Dems had a full Democratic sweep of the statewide offices?

What? Republicans won 6/10.
Wait, there's 10 elected statewide offices in North Carolina? Jeez. I only knew about Governor/LG, AG, and Auditor. Huh.
39  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If you could change one regime... on: January 01, 2017, 02:45:46 pm
Saudi Arabia, China, or Iran. Though I suspect Iran's regime will quietly go away in the coming decades. They don't seem to have the autocratic appetite of the early revolutionary Iran government.

How can an extremist regime, that believes in its devine right for world dominance and is actively trying to achieve it by funding terrorists, go away quietly, without a fight?

I might be misled or ignorant, but to me it looks like they've been going through the motions of reform, or at least the appearance of such, at least when compared to the early days of the Revolution. Surely the years of the first Ayatollah were more radical and vicious than nowadays?
40  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What will happen when a federal senator alter his/her oath of office? on: January 01, 2017, 02:43:38 pm
Well, I don't know about California independence advocates, but I'm sure the Southern independence advocates altered their oath in some way or another.

He wasn't even a funny meme to begin with, and he got his 15 seconds of fame, he's not going to get any more support.

44  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: UK party affiliation on: January 01, 2017, 03:20:12 am
I like underdogs, and don't like Corbyn.

Err...

He's just an incompetent doofus, at least from what I've seen. Of course, his opponents in Labour (like Owen Smith) are even more incompetent, so...

I'm guessing.... ISIS or ISIS inspired nutjob.
46  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bronz, I FOUND The PERFECT CANDIDATE For 2020... on: December 31, 2016, 01:51:53 pm
Why would people vote for someone that they can't even see?

Don't worry, they'd be able to see his VP, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
47  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: UK party affiliation on: December 31, 2016, 01:42:14 pm
I'd probably be Labour, Lib Dems, or Greens, I voted Lib Dems in this poll because I like underdogs, and don't like Corbyn.

Maybe Greens if I really felt like it. If Corbyn lost the leadership and a sane Labour leader was in charge, I'd be in favor of Labour.
48  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: When (and if) did you start supporting same-sex marriage? on: December 27, 2016, 09:08:05 pm
A couple years after my sister came out, which was 10 or 11 years ago.

Farewell to a guy whose followers thought he had wayyyy more influence than he actually has. Hope he enjoys his retirement.
50  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Spain's Party Leanings on: December 27, 2016, 08:38:19 pm
Probably Podemos. Maybe on the left edge of PSOE. Maybe a left Catalan nationalist if I lived in Catalonia. I'm not entirely sure.
