As someone who has two degrees in IT, and worked in the field, extremely horrible password. Would not be accepted by any password policy devised by me.

Can't vote (obviously), but Amash, Cruz, Cotton and Haley are up there, and I'd vote for any of them barring Walsh.
15  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who would you rather have had as President-for-life? on: October 14, 2016, 10:35:02 pm
Reagan (he'd likely resign around 1992, and Bush Senior would take over).

Historically, Coolidge, Cleveland, Washington, and Van Buren would be up there for me too, for their respective eras.

In the run up to Australia Day, here's Kingswood Country, originally on Australian TV from 1980-84:

Ted Bullpitt - A working class employee at a putty factory, generally Liberal, although would have supported One Nation in 1998 (this being said, Ted was more the type to dislike anyone and anything, rather than an Archie Bunker or Alf Garnett type).  I think Ted would have voted for Katter's Australian Party in 2013, to "bring back the Kingswood".
Thelma Bullpitt - Ted's wife, I'd say a swing voter, probably sneakily (as in not telling Ted) supported Labor in 1972, when Whitlam came into power.
Greta Bertolucci (nee Bullpitt) - Ted & Thelma's daughter, most likely Labor, both at the time and now, given her progressivism.
Craig Bullpitt - Ted & Thelma's son, a medical student, probably Labor at the time, and the Democrats in the Senate. May be a Greens voter now.
Bruno Bertolucci - Greta's husband, Labor , for similar reasons to his wife, and also because of his ethnicity (Italian) and religion (Catholicism).
Bob Bullpitt - Ted's brother, a used car salesman from Brisbane, most likely voted Liberal, This being said, Bob probably voted for the Nationals at the state level in the 1980s, and was probably tempted by Palmer United in 2013.
Merle Bullpitt - Bob's upwardly mobile wife, I'd think she'd be straight-ticket Liberal at both federal and state levels.

To update this, in the wake of the passing of Ross Higgins (Ted Bullpitt), having re-watched a good number of episodes, while Ted was conservative, and had a profound dislike of Whitlam, Hawke, and Al Grassby, he was very anti-politician in general (he disses then-PM Fraser and then Treasurer John Howard in numerous episodes). In 2016, he'd probably vote One Nation again.
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Witney by-election, 2016 on: October 13, 2016, 02:10:03 am
A blatantly obvious vote for Courts (Tory). Especially assuming the UKIPper is a Faragite, not a Carswellite.

Who wins the green states in this scenario? McMullin?
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Evan McMullin on: October 12, 2016, 10:25:04 pm
FF, my favourite of this election's candidates. Pity he won't do that well Sad
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which states would Meltdown Trump win? on: October 09, 2016, 10:30:14 am
These would be the "Titanium R" states.

Why ND over KS?

Kansas polls have been decently close and their governor is very unpopular. North Dakota received an influx of conservatives and became more conservative thanks to the oil boom

I knew Brownback was unpopular, but I didn't think the presidential polls would be close in KS (I've been turned off a LOT this race)
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Hypothetical Austrian constitutional referendum, 2016 on: October 09, 2016, 10:26:07 am
Habsburg restoration for sure (normal, make Austria great again, etc.)

23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who will win PA and why? on: October 09, 2016, 09:28:35 am
Clinton, although not that strongly.
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is the biggest city you've never heard of? (EU Edition) on: October 04, 2016, 07:33:37 pm
32. Zaragoza

This said, I've heard of plenty of cities below that one, including Wakefield, Utrecht and Malmö.
