no, not even on college campuses. part of being a "counterculture" is that you have to be cool, and most college republicans are massive dorks

feels super weird to say this but IceSpear is correct that repealing the ACA would probably kill more people than died on 9/11. of/c it hasn't happened yet, but if it did, yeah.

Biss is the most likely choice, and the most ideologically compatible one. There's also a case for Pritzker - would be nice to have the Governor owe you a favor when you're running for Mayor

beverly hills antifa is also fake. you can tell because the account is called "beverly hills antifa." this really isn't that difficult, folks.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh

Just saying, an open TN race may be more competitive than a Cruz-held TX race.

Maybe, but who can Democrats run? And I'd wager the open governor's seat is more appealing to strong candidates because it's more winnable than an open Senate seat.

Easy answer is you push Fitzhugh or Dean out of the gov race and into the senate oneóavoid the cost of a primary, decent shot for both now that it's an open seat.

The people who run Antifa Boston are a couple in Eugene, Oregon. Generally @AntifaChecker on twitter is a reliable way to tell if you're dealing with a real or a fake antifa account. Most of them are pretty easy to spot because of the bios or locations (Antifa Mar-A-Lago, Antifa Beverly Hills, Nantucket Antifa, etc). The Boston one isn't like that, but it does retweet and interact with the other parody antifa accounts so it's pretty clear it's parody.
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who was your second choice in previous presidential elections? on: September 22, 2017, 10:21:12 am
the left-wing third-party in elections where I voted for the Democrat, the Democrat in elections where I voted for the left-wing third-party.
22  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would Antifa consider someone like me to be a "fascist"? on: September 22, 2017, 05:05:53 am
It seems Antifa hates more than just the alt-right, they also hate libertarians, establishment Republicans, and Democrats as well.

no. antifa target and disrupt fascist demonstrations. they may dislike other groups politically but they don't try to shut down, like, Jeb rallies or whatever
23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Will Charlie Crist win reelection? on: September 22, 2017, 05:03:57 am
Crist is safe for '18 and '20. Obviously it's impossible to know if he'll get screwed or not in the next round of redistricting.

I doubt redistricting will become an issue for Crist. There's really no way to change the shape of the district.

If Florida gains the 1 seat it is expected to, yeah Crist's district should be fine, if it gains 2 which is a possibility, it could get changed pretty easily.

it really can't. pinellas is pretty much built out at this point, and the court's rejected water continuity for this district as a fair districts violation in the past. there's really no other shape you can draw here.
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would Antifa consider someone like me to be a "fascist"? on: September 21, 2017, 07:00:10 pm
If you're not actively involved in a far-right demonstration I don't see why they'd care at all.

Antifa Boston is fake, btw.

Dart is OUT

Why didn't he run for Gov?

Personally, I think it's just because he's happy with his current job.

This is what I've heard from folks that know Dart.

As for Drury, I don't expect he'll do well. Nothing changed from the governor's race.
