Kokesh. Even if he is a loony, better than West, that's for sure.  Anyone have information about Rattiner's ideology?
4  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you support public smoking bans? on: May 25, 2016, 10:48:02 am
No, it should be up to the pub whether or not they want to allow smoking/a smoking section.
5  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of the European Union, on: May 25, 2016, 10:47:10 am
1. While I like free trade, I am not a fan of the EU(SSR)'s supra-nationalism/Euro/most, if not all of the reasons David B. mentioned.
6  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who do you approve of more, PR or DT? on: May 24, 2016, 08:15:50 pm
Ryan.
7  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How did you vote in the 2008 Presidential election? (by party) on: May 24, 2016, 08:00:40 pm
McCain.

I remember being grilled by much of my family for supporting McCain - almost all of my family were for Obama.

Palmer United/Progressive Unionists.

I may be a Unionist regarding Northern Ireland, but there's no way I'm voting for a social democratic party over a conservative (although flawed) one.

This being said, Palmer United was an epic failure of a party, in terms of organisation (Palmer often missed Parliamentary sessions), and I'm glad Palmer will be replaced by an LNP MP.
11  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How do you feel about Trump and Clinton for POTUS? on: May 13, 2016, 07:36:25 pm
Not fond of either of them.
12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is Trump's ideology? on: May 12, 2016, 07:22:17 pm
Trumpism, or in other words, a combination of all of the above.
13  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of fascists on: May 12, 2016, 08:53:41 am
Horrible and terrifying (normal)
14  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Law and Justice on: May 12, 2016, 06:57:03 am
I'd vote for them.
15  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is my damn ideology? on: May 11, 2016, 06:28:40 am
Moderate-Hardcore Liberal (voted Moderate Liberal).

If only Labor were going to win an election with an actually decent, non-horrible leader. I can't shake the feeling that Shorten will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

Imagine if Albanese was the ALP leader!

Yes, we would probably lose by more.

What makes you think that Polnut? I thought at the leadership election, Albanese was more popular with voters than Shorten.
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What would Atlas say is my political ideology? on: May 09, 2016, 08:15:42 pm


This, you come across as a moderate libertarian to me.
18  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you smoke cigarettes? on: May 08, 2016, 08:51:07 pm
Nope, while I don't have a problem with others smoking around me/being in a smoke-filled pub, I'd rather not end up like my uncle, who's had two heart attacks. Also, I'm not wrecking my teeth.
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Donald Trump vs Bernie Sanders (two options only) on: May 07, 2016, 10:46:30 pm
Proud to spoil my ballot, as with Clinton vs Trump.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who would Al Bundy support? on: May 06, 2016, 06:23:27 pm
Refer to my answer in this message, so basically, if Al could actually be bothered to vote (he wouldn't care unless beer tax was threatened to be raised, or his beloved nudie magazines/nudie bars were to be outlawed), he'd be a Gary Johnson voter.

Also, Al was only prejudist against the French, when it came to racism/xenophobia, and is also tolerant of gays, as evident by this episode.
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted in the 1984 presidential election? on: May 05, 2016, 07:28:14 am
Reagan with no doubt whatsoever.
22  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.

The Great Communicator.
25  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.
