My take:

If Romney gets in:

- Economic thuggery will be restored.
- Majority of ObamaCare will be repealed.
- Working poverty will  become the norm again.
- The Keystone Pipeline will get the green light on day one -- and rushed, it will become an ecological disaster in the making.
- We will offshore even more jobs to China. This must be America's century -- but only for America's economic elites.
- Shift of taxes from economic elites to people who struggle for everything they get will be the signature legislation of the Romney Administration.
- The situation in Iran will be transformed into a horrific war.

----------------------------------------------------

If Obama gets back in we'll have a replay of the past four years, and more:

- Falling unemployment, especially for young adults (whose well-educated are not immune).
- A continuation of the tense situation in Iran until the Iranian thug leadership begs for mercy at terms largely at American choosing.
- Not falling behind the rest of the world in living standards and social justice.
- Shrinking deficits that are left for Obama's successor to finish off.
- Allowing oil in Alberta to flow to China rather than into the Oglalla aquifer.
- More people off welfare because of an economy growing sustainably.

Fixed.

This whole thread has gone down the rabbit hole of Nixon's Southern Strategy being an anti-racist campaign targeting moderates and that by 1980 the South was Martin Luther King's dream come true where Reagan promoting states' rights in Philadelphia, Miss. wasn't at all what some people claim it to be.

Cut me some slack. I going from a skim read wikipedia article.

The "apart from their altering the constitution" bit is fun though. Sounds like "OK, they're crazy authoritarian power grabs, but apart from that they're great people". Kind of like Sanchez's comment on Enoch Powell "he was racist but a FF". Such sentences just sound wrong.

To be fair, Hungarian political parties are awful. There's Fidesz, who are awful, there's Jobbik, who are extremely awful, there's a couple Christian conservative parties (Christian Democratic People's Party and Hungarain Democratic Forum) who are awful, and there's the socialists (who are by default awful). Really the only thing approaching decent is a small green liberal group called Politics Can Be Different.

OK, so Fidesz is bad because they are wannabe dictators, and MSZP is just as bad because they are... left-wing (and not even that much so) ?

It's hackish (which I get into, too) but we have to preserve a distinction between hackery and outright delusion.

Didn't say just as bad, but they are a socialist party so they're kinda bad (from my perspective).

The way you phrased things was ill-advised, at best. Considering the nature of Fidesz's actions, your mentioning them alongside with MSZP's guilt of being socialist (which, BTW, they really aren't; like most Eastern Europe former communist party they are pretty un-ideologic bureaucrats) sounds weird.

I mainly said Fidesz were FF's because of there role in the fight against communist evil in Hungary.

Oh, so you're one of those people...

Strictly speaking, Obama is probably closer to being a fascist than a socialist. But that's like saying Timbuktu is closer to New York than to Los Angeles.

MSZP is of course an awful party, I think largely unrelated to being socialists or un-ideologic bureaucrats. For the fact that they outright made up statistics about the state of the economy and admitted to it.[well I suppose admitting it could be a positive] and of course being fairly corrupt.

The purpose and value of the comment was not really about Obama but rather as a reminder what sort of regime we live under.

My brother is big-time Brony. The Brony Community, on the side, has other obsessions they usually incorporate into their fascinating fan community. (Thinksome of the Spiderman macros that include MLP) A big part of the community really loves the Portal franchise. Just look up "My Little Portal" on YouTube.

Watching a video of two bronies (well, a brony and a pegasister) playing Portal co-op mode peaked my interest in the game. It seems to be much more cerebral than most games of its class, and should be fun.

Do you all have any advice?

I do have some advice.  Don't admit the stuff you talked about in the preceding two paragraphs to the world at large.

Colorado is the next Oregon.

And I think Ohio is the next Michigan.



And for what it's worth, SJoyceFla, --
First of all, by far not as much of the general population is "anti-brony" as you or The Mikado would like to think. Besides that, it's an undeniable fact that the brony community produces crossovers with any variety of other things. Thirdly, and most importantly, how the [inks] is watching a video of two bronies playing Portal supposed to be something to be ashamed of? Even if you accept the baseless prejudice of MLP in general as being something to be ashamed of, a video of two bronies playing Portal is not going to be substantially different in any way from a video of two non-bronies playing Portal.

Look, I have strong opinions, I'm sure you have strong opinions.

For someone with strong opinions, you are oddly coy about them at times.

For instance, your signature:

Quote
"Freedom. And Justice. If you have those two, it covers everything. You must stick to those principles and have the courage of your convictions"




The quote is from Ian Smith and the picture is of Clem Tholet a Rhodesian folk singer who wrote and sang a bunch of war songs.

Combining these quotes with your user name, I presume you're part of the Rhodesian diaspora, and part of the part of that diaspora that wishes that minority white rule had been successful.

Both posts, but especially NY Jew doing his usual gimmick.

I find it extremely ironic that Jewish Americans tend to be liberal and vote 75-80% Democrat since liberals and the Democratic Party have started to embrace many seemingly anti-Semitic and anti-Israel elements in their party.  Since Jews also tend to be very fiscally conservative, I would think that Republicans would be a better fit for the Jewish community on both those issues.  Then again, I'm a Republican and very much philo-Semitic (a lover of Jews), so I sort of have a vested interest in saying that...
many American jews wouldn't care if every single Jew in Israel was killed.

but remember the exit polls were clearly wrong (and jews voted more for McCain) which is why this thread exists.
