If Burr decides to not run, who would be the strongest Republican to hold that seat? Who would be the strongest Democrat?

Fellow Atlasians,
I have returned from the wilderness of RL. I am going to slowly get re-involved again, and not over do it like I did my last tenure. Looks like I have some catching up to do.

I don't feel like several people being shot is something to celebrate even if the alternative is more people getting shot.

Isn't that what war is? At least a semi-justified one?

It is Belgium's Budweiser. Not worth drinking given the alternatives.

I can also agree with the chorus that this man is an FF.

But for those that might be tempted to use this as a political argument (often while coming up with all sorts of crackpot reasons why it's immoral, dishonest, whatever the other way around in other cases), spare us the BS. For every example of guns helping you get 10 or more examples to the contrary.

Please provide me with 10 counterexamples for every single story at that link, but start by giving 100 for every story I linked to.




Um, no? I'm not going to waste my time listing incidents of gun violence for you. There are plenty in the press for you to read about.

Economic Issues -
Taxation: We have to keep the revenue levels we have at the moment, so I support lowering our rates but closing tax loopholes and eliminating deductions to create a revenue neutral system. Top rate hopefully around 25% or 28%.
Minimum Wage: Abolish the national minimum wage.
Healthcare: Repeal Obamacare, replace with a healthcare system with some key changes like health savings accounts, lawsuit reform, and prize funding for research.
Social Security: I support privatizing the system, as long as it means reducing the burden of the system. Raising the retirement age is something I'm for, but I'm not for reducing benefits in sneaky ways like lowering the inflation rate (especially to one that is lower than the current one we have).
Free Trade: Free Trade is the ultimate equalizer. It funds small foreign countries latter Labor revolutions, while keeping prices lower in our country. Fair trade hurts the people it intends to help, while sticking us with the bill.
Unions/Right-to-work: I support right-to-work laws, I don't think I can be any clearer than that.
