There is something wrong with this forum. You guys like dressing like an Eskimo for 8 months a year?

Hard to pass on free health care.

Depends on one's personal situation I suppose. How are taxes in Canada, especially for the poor and lower middle class? Is there a VAT? Someone is paying for that healthcare, and unlike America, the tax system is usually less progressive in places that have a larger government. In addition, the ACA helps out a lot of these people with subsidies and there is a fairly generous stop loss provision. I am sure many people would benefit in a Canadian system but I suspect it would be the really poor and the upper middle class. Most of the working poor and middle class might be better off in the American health care system.

Yeah, I've never really been a legislation writer, I much prefer to amend bills that come to the floor than write my own, but especially with me being speaker and being on the electoral commission, I'm not able to devote all my energy to writing legislation.

I will say that an amendment which I just introduced now allows a senator who's not TNF Deus or Windjammer's  bill to sail right to the front of the queue, so if anyone does want a bill on the floor, it will happen pretty quickly.

Merkel is the worst leader one can hope for. She stands for nothing and does nothing. Yet people will vote for her because they think 1.5% growth makes the county a "juggernaut." I know some Americans can't stand their partisan bickering either but at least you get a proper choice between two ideologically divided parties in the US. Over here you get a government made up of a large Centrist Unity Party.

So I guess Ashton Carter is now the frontrunner for the job, by process of elimination?

Ashton Carter, his successor Bob Work, or possibly, as mentioned already, Adam Smith.

Wow BRTD, I never would have guessed that you hated South Park.
ikr!  You'd think BRTD with his libertarian sensibilities would be a big fan of SP.  He really should keep us up to date on which shows he likes, THE FORUM NEEDS TO KNOW DAMN IT!

I disagree with Nevada. I highly doubt 90% of Blacks voted Democrat there. Maybe 70-75%, perhaps a little higher than that. Kerry only won about 86% of the vote. Reid only got 79% of the vote in 2010 (though 11% voted other which is suspect). Overall, the west is not as racially polarized as the south or even the midwest. About 20% of blacks regularly vote for Republicans in California.

Good to know - I'll keep that in mind when I ultimately revise this. I'm hoping to go back once the states that publish turnout by race all release their exact figures. FTR, adjusting it along the parameters you mention would boost white support for Goodman to roughly 18%.

It's not the finished product, but I think this can be worked on further.

I should hope that the world won't have to see the likes of Churchill again, because in any situation not involving total war he was completely hapless at the very best.
