  1. Kucinich Factor?

    I'm a Bernie supporter and I would vote for Kucinich if I lived in Ohio so this is an awful generalization
  2. Trumps advisor Kushner

    Joe Manchin is absolutely not left-wing; he's a centrist/center-left Democrat. Just because he's left of center doesn't mean he's left-wing, that'd be like saying Jon Huntsman is a Tea Partier. Most Democrats aren't even left-wing, they're mostly center-left.
  3. Trumps advisor Kushner

    That's completely fair, but he doesn't need to be "Senior Advisor" to the President to support him; Patine's point still stands
  4. Trumps advisor Kushner

    This is literally exactly what a therapist is for, not a Presidential advisor...
  5. Alabama Senate Special Election 2017

    Any more progress? If not, you could send it to me and I could see if I could figure out what's going on or help in some other way; I'm looking forward to this scenario.
  6. Alabama Senate Special Election 2017

    How's this coming along?
  7. I just searched his name and came across some response on ask.fm that said he got expelled from his high school...
  8. Alabama Senate Special Election 2017

    Jeff Sessions should definitely be a what-if, and a 3rd party Nick Saban might be fun, though I have absolutely no idea where he stands politically.
  9. Basic History of My Confederate Series

    The "stain" of slave labor causes the country's economy to tank in the late 70s and early 80s, leading to many states abolishing slavery and the change in government from a Democrat President to a Whig... The Native Americans who sided with the Confederacy will be "cheated and betrayed". They were promised what became Oklahoma to be their own state, however, the Indian Territory will be opened up to white settlement and will become a state, much like what happened in the U.S. Most of your other questions I either don't have an answer for, or would rather wait until getting to that point in history to address, such as the Cuba/Spanish issue and Confederate-Mexican relations.

On the first day of the first month of the year 1895, all slaves shall be granted freedom, as well as immediate citizenship in the Confederate States of America.

Any slave owners who have not granted freedom to their slaves before January 1, 1895 will not receive any compensation. The sale of persons into slavery shall also be prohibited, effective immediately. *This history will be updated as I continue my series
  11. form a cabinet???

    What would be the purpose of that? The game would be over already... Now if you suggested the ability to offer other candidates or endorsers spots in your cabinet I could get on board with that.
  12. The inventor of email is running for the senate.

    Just so you know he didn't actually invent e-mail, he just claims he did. The real inventor of e-mail (Ray Tomlinson) is dead.
  13. 2018 Ohio Gubernatorial (update)

    He's a Democrat. He was a Democrat when he was Mayor of Cincinnati and has run as a Democrat since then.
  14. Weird and Wonderful What-Ifs

    He has said that he would consider running for office after he's done rapping. I believe he recently tweeted that he plans on running for Atlanta school board at some point.

    I'll keep Mitch McConnell
  16. I smell bullshit

    I did read it. He may have said the wrong person (Gibson) claimed they were molested, but that doesn't change the fact that someone accused Moore of molesting them. Presidentinsertname is still completely dismissing Corfman's claim without any legitimate evidence. Of course Moore is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, but these women's claims don't deserve to be dismissed immediately.
  17. I smell bullshit

    But Corfman did claim that he molested her. I don't see why it matters which person he allegedly molested, he still (allegedly) molested someone... "Alone with Corfman, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number, she says. Days later, she says, he picked her up around the corner from her house in Gadsden, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. On a second visit, she says, he took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear."
  18. I smell bullshit

    You know you just reinforced my point, right? I have no idea what the truth is, but your evidence backing up your claim is that she's a democrat. She very well could be lying, but this is a moronic point to use as evidence.
  19. I smell bullshit

    Good point. The only way to determine whether or not someone was molested is to first determine if they share a political affiliation with you. She doesn't share a political affiliation with you, therefore she obviously was not molested. Eureka!
  20. Daylight Savings time poll

    I think it'd make a lot more sense to abolish standard time than daylight savings time. It would definitely help save energy and money. I'd rather it be dark later into the morning than earlier at night. I don't see any benefits to abolishing daylight savings timeā€¦

    Do you believe, as Hitler did, that human races are like species, and thus should not "interbreed"? There is no such thing as a "pure" ethnicity. We're all mixed. Not only is it objectionable to suggest that people of a certain race "stay with [their] own kin," and only take orders from people of their own race, it is theoretically impossible. Every single person's ancestral DNA is unique, resulting in unique ethnic makeups. If people actually heeded this advice, the human race would cease to exist (not to mention everyone would have to take orders from a person of another race, since, in actuality, everyone is of their own race).
