More right-wing hypocrisy when it comes to states' rights. Just like it was with fugitive slave laws.

Where is the option for Fort Marcy Park?

Bringing Jordan into the equation is a transparent ploy to allow Israel to steal as much Palestinian land as possible without conceding too much in terms of demographics after annexation. With a Palestinian state no longer being viable, Jordan is then to absorb the large population centers.

LOLFOX. I bet they cried when they got that result.

Doesn't that make this a push poll?
No, this question was asked after the head to head match ups.

From what I understand, that doesn't matter.

Your understanding is incorrect, I'm afraid.

I think not. Push polls are all about what is being sent out, not what is coming in. So the bill fits here, even if it's an odd case.

He's in legacy-building mode.

The huge irony of all these (mostly symbolic) recognitions of Palestine is that they are coming now that a viable two-state solution is pretty much no longer possible.

Should have added Perot as an option.
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Ted Cruz will win the Republican primary- My prediction on: December 15, 2014, 12:56:19 pm
It's a very tall order, but if, for once, it's the Democrats that fall in line (Clinton), maybe this time the Republicans will fall in love.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which state seems to be gone for Republicans? on: December 14, 2014, 07:01:03 pm
Florida's Democratic Party is enough of a joke that the GOP still has a chance.

You knew somebody would do this.

Unfortunately for those who expect him to become vulnerable in 2016 his district (IN-3) is R+13.

That actually makes him vulnerable... in a primary.

Boehner's a Jedi?

The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.

Got to say, I'm not typically a fan of Mossad or their black ops, but the ones they carried out against this guy are impossible not to admire.

Does that include the fact that other, possibly innocent people got killed by them?

Nice try, Colleen.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Most boring possible Republican primary on: November 29, 2014, 10:36:34 pm
Who's most likely to just run away with the nomination from the get-go and provide the least entertainment in the process?

Hillary Clinton is too narcissistic to have any position on the political spectrum.

Given the URL, I have a suspicion that the people at Breitbart were being idiots (again) and then later edited the page to cover up their mistake.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Gallup: US Postal Service, FBI and NASA are the best Government agencies on: November 22, 2014, 11:25:17 am
I wonder how many Americans think it was their agency who landed on the comet.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Jeb Runs... on: November 21, 2014, 11:22:33 am
Bush winning the nomination depends on whether the anti-establishment Republicans can rally around a single opponent or whether they are destroyed in detail just like in 2012.

Looks like a lot of people (including BRTD) owe Dennis Kucinich an apology.
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What will be the next Amendment? on: November 19, 2014, 01:32:13 pm
IRV is a poor choice for a nationwide election method as you would run into the logistical problem of compiling votes of subdivisions such that they can still be aggregated.

I'm not sure I follow this.

You need to ask yourself how results from multiple places can be tabulated in such a way that the overall winner can be determined from them. Otherwise you would need to gather all the votes in one place.
25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What will be the next Amendment? on: November 19, 2014, 10:32:02 am
An amendment that would allow for instant-runoff voting nationwide to ensure that the winner of an election gets at least 50% of the vote, while eliminating the need to finance an additional day of elections

IRV is a poor choice for a nationwide election method as you would run into the logistical problem of compiling votes of subdivisions such that they can still be aggregated. If you're going to use a preferential voting method, then you might as well go for a summable Condorcet one.
