A good dude, if regrettably as the alternate timelines have proven time and time again prioritized the few hot-button social issues of the left over the big picture ones and the economics (why else would a leftist Democrat to this day ever vote for Birch Bayh over Terry Sanford, why else would you vote for a Kennedy over Muskie?).

?

SKIP

Also without a defined stance on foreign policy beyond a disgust for the Iraq War, so I guess this makes him a textbook California liberal.

Erhm, I hope you do realize one of my schticks is focusing on "bread and butter" issues over social issues (hence why I'm a strong supporter of New Deal Democrats such as FDR himself, Truman, Humphrey, and H. Jackson) while I'm relatively conservative on social issues-being strongly pro-life for instance. I'm not sure what alternate timeline elections you are talking about. As for foreign policy,my posts generally implied support for liberal internationalism.

Who are we on, MormDem?

MormDem is in general a solid poster and, broadly speaking, 'in the right' politically (not on the right, certainly). There's a definite kind of gross frisson to the way he approaches gender issues but this doesn't seem to be coming from a place of malice and, to whatever extent it is or could be a problem, can probably be moderated as he matures. Until then, it is admittedly kind of annoying when it comes up. But he's serious and sincere and doesn't dissemble, and that counts for a lot.

A good poster and a really nice person. But of course, this thread requires details:

Maddy posts well-written stuff on a variety of subjects and is nice to people which is something we need more of on this forum. Most importantly Maddy adds to the knowledge of the forum thanks to her extensive knowledge of a topics that the forum is weak on, most notably Japan, and liberal Protestantism.

On the negative side, Maddy seems almost totally disinterested in economic issues, which saddens me and has a habit of posting walls o' text, which can be a bit annoying but doesn't diminish her overwhelming FF rating.

Honestly, if I lived in Canada, I'd probably be a lot like him politically. We both put a strong emphasis on morality and social justice in our political outlook, which I think gets lost in a lot of today's discourse. FF.

He is the epitome of a southern Democrat.  Socially he is more conservative, but he is moving into the center.  On economics, he is more left wing.  He is very populist in my book.

Miles: By far one of the nicest posters on here and he puts a lot of time and energy into everything election's on here, whether it's informing us of everything going on in LA/NC politics or being this forum's Chuck Todd master of the maps.

Aside from that, I also respect his honesty and he's right on when it comes to his opinions of Thom Tillis or Pat McCrory.

Edit: For Jerry, to be honest, he's a cool guy. He often says some weird or bizarre things, but is overall a nice guy and is the de facto guru of Arkansas politics. I'm hoping his health situation he was discussing the other day improves! Smiley

Edit: Oh come on! lol. Sawx, even though we do hold a few different social views, is a very funny, cool and understanding friend. His social life is really interesting if you get to know him, and I give him bonus points for calling out SirNick in Atlasia. Definite FF.

I do, but I guess given my own more polarized and cynical outlook, it looks that way, especially regarding intervention (most Atlasians) vs non-intervention (where my leanings are, and the Marxists epitomize). And given the complete Teddy support.

On Sawx: Someone who interrupted my post on Jerry, nice going!

Okay seriously, he's a very very "liberal and proud of it" poster, but he seems to be very polite and open.

On LeBron: Someone who interrupted my post on Sawx, excellently done!

And once again, same description I gave Sawx, although he tends to get more carried away about it, and his posts tend to have a lot of Ohio patriotism.

On the negative side, Maddy seems almost totally disinterested in economic issues, which saddens me

I'm not, it's just that there are posters who are much more eloquent and forceful advocates for the democratic-socialist economic policies that I prefer than I could be--i.e. I don't feel that my perspective on economic issues is terribly unique on this forum, nor do I feel that I'd be especially good at presenting it.

You don't post when you got nothing to say? That probably makes you the best poster. Tongue

I'd participate in the thread but I think I'd be supposed to comment on MormDem and I honestly have no idea who he is so I can't really contribute that much. :/

I really like Gustaf, especially his ability of being never hurt by critics. His posts are always interesting and he has always been friendly to me Tongue.
He s also ŗ big mouth and I like that.
