Some, I assume, are good people.

The youngest was 61, the oldest 76.
81  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Is it hard to be a Republican on Atlas? on: July 10, 2017, 09:20:29 pm
Being a Republican on Atlas isn't hard; members like Badger and TD are pretty well liked and respected. For example, TD and I disagree on a lot of issues, but I respect him and appreciate his contributions here; same with Badger. However, being a Trump supporter or a social/cultural conservative does seem considerably more challenging. The forum is disproportionately secular and liberal, which results in a rather widespread hostility towards Trump's brand of politics and socially conservative viewpoints. It doesn't help that most (but not all) of those contributors here are walking stereotypes.

what about me , you guys seem to dislike me and I am a Never Trump Republican.

I can only speak for myself, but I don't have any issue with you. Most members here seem to debate you, rather than treat you with disdain like they do Sanchez and others. We just disagree with you a lot, which is fine and healthy, since you represent an opposing ideological viewpoint.

There are some T***p supporters I have far more respect for than I do for Beep Boop.

I'd vote for the candidate who won the national popular vote.

How sensible and moderate! Smiley

Depends on an expert assessment of the flaws and risks. If they were better then a human in every way without serious risks(and wanted to help all of humanity, not just america) then easily

The nanogenes also wanted to help all of humanity...

The problem isn't "identity politics" as such. The problem is that the identity Democrats appeal to is a terrible one.

Knocking on wood and crossing fingers that this bill is really bound to die.

Blue lives matter.

Blue incomes matter, you mean.

Why not both? These men have families.

You're better than this.

Hot take: colleges and churches are both lean good.

Hate to agree with Grumps but...

If the tell the Clintons to STFU, that would be a good start.

Obvious HP, but somewhat more excusable than the loyalist thugs on the other side.
91  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Ask Antonio (Almost) Anything on: July 10, 2017, 08:34:27 am
Have you ever read The Screwtape Letters?

If not, I would certainly recommend it, as well as some sort of study guide to guide you through it. It is a surprisingly good book. As for similar books for Islam, I don't know. Maybe you could ask TimTurner or TheShadowyAbyss?

Thanks for the recommendation! Smiley I hadn't heard of it, but I've heard a lot of good about C. S. Lewis, so I'd be happy to check it out some day.
92  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which of the 10 Lenses of Diversity is closest to your views? on: July 10, 2017, 08:29:41 am
Transcendent, Integrationist, Colorblind... I guess? But that doesn't mean cultures aren't important or that there shouldn't be some level of tolerance to them as long as they don't violate human rights.
93  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would you vote for a robot (ai) president? on: July 10, 2017, 08:26:45 am
Would the robot be programmed with Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics?

If so, how could he serve as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces when he is obliged to "not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm"?

Yeah, it's simply impossible to hold political power and respect this law.

95  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: How do British Jews vote? on: July 10, 2017, 08:18:02 am
Interestingly, the LibDem never had any sway for Jewish voters (in any formation) and as a fellow Tottenham supporter once told (Jew living in Hertfordshire) they are by far the most antisemitic party

Huh. That's... interesting.

Well duh. But the problem is that the corporate wing will never accept that. That's why it needs to be purged.

Heathers: basically the evil twin of Clueless. Hilariously creepy and un-PC, though a bit too cynical for me at some points.

So yeah, SJW hardcore music is way better than any alt-right music.

If that's all you have to say in its defense, that's not exactly a compelling case...
