1  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted in the 1984 presidential election? on: Today at 07:28:14 am
Reagan with no doubt whatsoever.
2  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Which version of the Lord's Prayer is better? on: April 28, 2016, 08:35:40 pm
Definitely the King James version, the version we use at my church.

5  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Australia 2016 - How would/will you vote? on: April 24, 2016, 05:42:43 am
Liberal if I lived in a swing riding, One Nation otherwise.

Australia has compulsory preferences, so you can put One Nation first and the Liberals second, and your vote would still go to the Liberals.

For the House: Labor or Greens depending on the local candidates; although always preferencing Labor over the coalition parties.  If there was a more left-wing independent or minor party candidate standing then I might throw them my first preference to help them retain their deposit since that's probably very helpful for some of the smaller parties

For the senate with the new voting system I might chuck a preference or two to more left-wing minor parties before going Greens/Labor for the same reason; although perhaps that's less likely for the Upper House because preference order is a lot more important for STV elections than it is for AV; even in Australia's weird version of STV.

Australian Democrat

I thought that the Democrats had died out?  They certainly had their place as the third party with the balance of power in the Senate taken by the Greens...

Yes, the Democrats are officially dead, they were de-registered by the AEC last year for not showing they had at least 500 members. Most Democrats became members of the Greens, and the Greens basically took a lot of their voters in the 2000s.

By preference order:
Green
Socialist Alliance
Katter
Labor
LDP
Xenophon
DLP
AMEP
Palmer
Liberal
Nationals
Australian Liberty Alliance
Family First

If you don't mind me asking, why ALA over FF?
7  General Politics / Individual Politics / Australia 2016 - How would/will you vote? on: April 22, 2016, 11:03:51 am
Listed all of the parties that won a seat in either house last election, plus a couple of others on the fringes of the left and right (SA and ALA respectively).

Me: Family First, after voting Liberal in 2010 and 2013. Still preferencing Liberal over Labor (would still put Liberal as #1 in some divisions), and also preferencing the Nationals and Liberal Democrats highly.
8  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who will you vote for? on: April 22, 2016, 10:51:13 am
Spoiled ballot.
9  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1992 Presidential Election (No Reagan Series) on: April 20, 2016, 10:44:48 pm
I may not agree with Eastwood's views on abortion, guns, or (to a lesser extent than the first two) marriage, but I love his views on taxes/spending. He's got my vote.
10  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Favorite politicians of the opposite party on: April 20, 2016, 09:20:03 pm
Australia: Michael Danby, Chris Hayes
US: John Bel Edwards, Joe Manchin, Jim Webb
11  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 2016 General Election Polling Series - April on: April 20, 2016, 09:11:13 pm
Libertarian/Ted Cruz

As for the leave the country questions, I'm not American, but if I was, I wouldn't leave if either Clinton/Trump won.
12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted in the 1976 presidential election? on: April 20, 2016, 09:10:06 pm
Reagan in the primary (very enthusiastically), then Ford in the general (not as enthusiastically).
13  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who will you be voting for in the General Election: Cruz vs. Clinton. on: April 18, 2016, 10:30:20 pm
Cruz!
14  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Barack Obama vs. other presidents Volume 1: Bill Clinton on: April 17, 2016, 06:27:27 am
Not a fan of either, however Obama is better as a person, while Clinton was a better President.
15  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Malcolm Fraser on: April 17, 2016, 06:18:52 am
Not a fan, had massive majorities (including Senate majorities) for his first two terms, yet basically wasted them.
16  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted in the 1972 presidential election? on: April 17, 2016, 06:12:04 am
Nixon at the time, Hospers if I could see into the future.
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If You Could Magically Save 1 Senator in 2016 on: April 16, 2016, 10:43:53 am
Ron Johnson.
18  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: The Pirate Party set to win Iceland's fall elections (yes, actually!) on: April 14, 2016, 11:57:46 pm
What do the Pirate Party stand for, aside from transparency in government, an open internet, and openness in democracy?
19  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Will Cameron Resign? on: April 14, 2016, 11:54:01 pm
He's planning on resigning before 2020 anyway, isn't he?

He stated last year he'd resign by 2018.

As for the question, I can see him jumping ship if the UK secedes from the EU, but otherwise not yet.

Also, if he does resign, who do you think will become PM? Johnson? May? Osborne?
20  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would you ever vote for an atheist for President? on: April 14, 2016, 10:50:46 am
Would depend on his or her views - so in theory yes, although I can't imagine that many atheists have similar views to mine.
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Decade that had the worst presidents (since 1900) on: April 14, 2016, 10:50:05 am
1910s or 1930s, with a (dis)honourable mention to the 1970s.
22  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Nicolas Sarkozy v. Marine LePen? on: April 13, 2016, 10:04:16 pm
Sarkozy (sane conservative)
23  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Is it OK with watch Family Guy with a 5-year old? on: April 12, 2016, 11:14:21 pm
No, 5 is way too young to watch Family Guy. Better than letting a 5-year old watch South Park though. /prude
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of White Castle? on: April 12, 2016, 11:10:15 pm
Don't have it down my way.
