101  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How do you feel right now ? on: November 09, 2016, 04:11:18 am

Yeah. For you. After you go f-ck yourself.

Like I need off this forum. I want off this party, this forum, this whole interest in politics, at least until good sense reasserts itself.

Also this. There's just no decency and no order to things. It doesn't make sense. The whole thing reminds me that our institutions are not infallible things that help us "rise above" our own... materiality. In fact, they maybe amplify it. Because in the end, we're just f-cking animals. Equality, justice, rationality, fairness... they don't exist.

I really don't know where I go from here and where, like, the world goes from here. I feel empty.

Numb.
104  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Predict total turnout tomorrow! on: November 07, 2016, 10:57:49 pm
Another question: Will Hillary receive the most votes of any US presidential candidate ever? Is it within the realm of possibility?
105  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Final poll: who wins the big 5? on: November 07, 2016, 05:30:23 pm
I have my whole prediction set except for Ohio. Sigh. I know she's at a disadvantage, but I also know that 1) it's a place where ground game matters and 2) she's been gaining on Trump in polls there.

I go back and forth all the time and really don't know what I'll on. Maybe Clinton?

Here is Clinton's final 2-minute spot running just tonight

It actually made me tear up a little.
107  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: The most deplorable thing you've seen/heard from a Trump supporter this electio? on: November 07, 2016, 03:54:10 am
Hmm. The individual stories don't bug me as much because we've always known there were cooks like that. For me, it has always been the chants of "lock her up" that really get me. They shake me at my core almost every time I hear them.

- it's violent
- it's devoid of facts
- it's against the spirit of the rule of law
- it's not the kind of positive thing a political crowd should be chanting
- it's an unprecedented vilification of Hillary

... the list of things goes on, which points to the fact that it pretty much embodies all the worst aspects of Trump's campaign. Throw in the fact that I actually really love Hillary, and I think "lock her up" is the perfect storm of things that would "trigger me."

Comeygate's issue was timing. Clinton was already starting to slide heading into that weekend, it seems what Comey did was just prolong the slide rather than really deepen it.

I thought you were telling us that there was no tightening...
109  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Last minute poll: Who Wins? on: November 06, 2016, 12:54:18 pm
The American people. <3
110  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: States where you are confident about the relative outcome on: November 06, 2016, 12:51:06 pm
Honestly, the only one I'm really uncertain about is Ohio.

I also think there's an outside chance at "surprises" in Arizona and Michigan (!). Maybe I'm foolish.

Plus, the difference is your side has lost all moral high ground. So I'm not sorry. Generalization? Sure. But it sure wasn't us who started it. Remember that. And please, don't have the gall to call "you started it" a weak argument while you still support Grubby Cheeseman.
112  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: A mistake I think the Clinton campaign is making on: November 06, 2016, 11:34:42 am
"Anti-PC?" Don't you idiots realize that what you call "political correctness" is what actual decent people call "being considerate?" You're going to go shout "Merry Christmas" in the faces of a bunch of Sikhs just to be sh-t-stains? That's "standing up for your rights?"

I can only imagine how insecure you must be if you actually find "political correctness" threatening. My goodness.

Damn. Will this ensure that members of the fat ass white trash demographic turn out in droves?

He must be doing it on purpose, now. Tongue
115  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: PA postal worker caught stealing TRUMP signs and stashing them in his mail-truck on: November 05, 2016, 12:26:29 pm
Meh, I don't mind if they steal Trump signs. Donald Trump is objectively a threat to the Republic. Hillary Clinton is not.
116  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bigger villain this election? on: November 05, 2016, 03:09:31 am
Obviously the FBI, the director of which deliberately grandstanded and showboated throughout the election to an extremely unprecedented degree—and to the detriment of a candidate who barely did anything wrong.
117  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Wall Street Journal : The Gamble of Trump on: November 04, 2016, 07:35:05 pm
Donald Trump is only a "gamble" if you've shutting your eyes, plugging your ears, and shouting "lalalala" at the top of your lungs. Roll Eyes We know exactly what we'd get with Donald Trump, and it's absolutely alarming.
118  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Can we stop taking Drudge seriously? on: November 04, 2016, 11:02:50 am
None of us were.

Piss off, you dumbucks. Roll Eyes

Corruption. Pretty good, but too late Angry

“How did Hillary end up filthy rich?” the ad’s narrator asks, before citing issues related to the Clinton Foundation. “Now the FBI has launched a new investigation. After decades of lies and scandal, her corruption is closing in.”

A statement released by the GOP nominee’s campaign called the ad “part of Mr. Trump’s closing argument to the American people” and said it would be airing in “major markets across the country.”

Lol, he's such a piece of shit.
121  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Your Dad is voting for Trump. How would you describe him? on: November 02, 2016, 08:30:52 pm
He would be Deplorable, yes. It is an unforgivable and disqualifying offence.
122  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who are your relatives and friends voting for? on: November 02, 2016, 08:04:27 pm
It's a bit different for me because obviously all my family are Canadian, but I do know who they want to win.

Sister: Clinton
Dad: Clinton
Mom: Clinton
Dad's brother: Clinton
Dad's brother's wife: Clinton
Mom's sister: Clinton
Mom's sister's husband: Clinton
Mom's brother: Clinton
Mom's brother's wife: Clinton
Mom's brother's ex-wife: Clinton
Mom's brother's oldest son: Clinton
Mom's brother's middle son: Stein
Mom's brother's youngest son: Clinton
Paternal grandfather: Clinton
Paternal grandmother: Clinton
Maternal grandmother: Clinton

You see, outside of the United States, people are not so stupid about this election. We literally cannot believe that you people are coming close to bungling an absolutely obvious choice.

That being said, I will admit that a lot of us see Trump and see the way he's ridiculed and jump on the bandwagon because Canadian nationalism is based in part on the idea that we're better than Americans. So assuming that all of us were American, the only above votes that would change would be my mom's brother and his wife. They are bigoted fools who would totally fall hook, line, and sinker for Trump if it wasn't culturally encouraged to laugh at him and the stupid Americans.
123  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: FINAL WEEK POLL: What will be the PV victory margin? on: November 02, 2016, 06:54:11 pm
Clinton +5. Against a competent opponent with a real ground game it might be +3. But she'll have a definite advantage come the 8th.
124  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: absentee/early vote thread, part 2 on: November 02, 2016, 10:36:21 am

I doubt such a large increase in hispanic turnout is a good sign for Trump.

As a share of the electorate, 12% more Hispanics are voting, perhaps 70-30 in favour of Clinton. 14% fewer Blacks are voting, who usually go for the Democrat 90-10. Where's the "good news"? I mean, it's possible—even likely—that Clinton is winning more of the white vote, but at most these numbers make the situation just seem like a wash when compared to 2012...

Speaking as a former President, Atlasia simply isn't worth it. One can stay there for a number of different reasons, but boy do people take it seriously... (as I did for quite a while)

Amen. And more longstanding players need to take a hint.
