Lets talk platforms

Recommended Posts

People say I am a conservative. I wanted to see just how Conservative I am. So ask some questions. My IsideWithResults are right wing libertarian. But lets find out. Interview me I will give you my stance and Trust @Patine and @Reagan04 to determine how left right wing or Centrist I am.

ISideWith is a pretty bad measuring method ngl. I gave it moderately left results and got matched with Oprah Winfrey and Elizabeth Warren (even though I'm more of a Biden guy).

not to mention how it claims to simulate a lot of countries but in all countries's quizzes it uses American questions (Abortion in Israel for example, an irrelevant issue there) and sometimes get parties completely wrong (ISideWith classified the centrist Yesh Atid as "Progressive" and "Socialist")

I will say you buy into a LOT of myths, lies, and misinformation the Fiscal Corporatist lobby publishes - a lot of it very blatant as lies to anyone who observes and deals with multiple social-economic classes extensively - and use terms like "economically illiterate" and even outright "Socialist" or "Communist" for those who show any disagreement in any meaningful way with the regime of bullshit propaganda the Fiscal Corporatists push hard.

I agree Isidewith is marginal at best

Oh? Are you trying to play Speaker of the House, and use format and structure of responses as a method of ignoring or dismissing them?

No I just want some serious questions because I dont think I am as conservative as a lot of people think I am.

You're made repeated posts here that show you're a deluded, hardcore, unbending Fiscal Corporatist who supports policies that fully empower and de-regulate sociopathic mega-corporations to do as they please and run roughshod over everyone else, claiming it is necessary for an economy to benefit ALL and that disagreement with that is "economic illiteracy," or even "Socialism," or "Communism." However, I don't believe I, personally, have ever accused you of any firm stance, one way or another, in any non-economic arena of platform.

And I never made any accusation or criticism of you outside economics (though there was a lot more than just to taxation, alone, on what I was criticizing you on, economically).

I want to legalize Marijuana for recreational purposes. 

 

I do think we need a barrier at our southern boarder but that barrier should be up for discussion. My personal stance could be considered Far right.....but I am also willing to agree to any proposition that gives a barrier at the boarder and am willing to throw dems a bone on something else.

Marijuana legalization for recreational purposes is effectively Fiscally Corporatist, and beneficial to big corporations, and their sociopathic engines of unbridled greed in the end. Look at the absolute, monstrous, soulless villains running the Big Tobacco and Big Brewery industries as is. That viewpoint still fits you firmly into my original analysis, I'm afraid.

ALL of the major socio-political ideological camps of both big parties have their billionaire corporate endorsers. Oprah Winfrey is one of the social progressive-based ones. And, yes, it's often easy to forget she is indeed a billionaire corporate.

I recall folks looking to Oprah to run in 2016, as a powerful, influential woman of color.  She smartly refused, of course.

After Trump was elected, there was a mental reset/over-exaggeration of "Maybe no actual politician will ever be elected ever again!"  and Oprah's name was bandied about again.

To my knowledge, Oprah has consistently denied any interest at all, to her credit.

I never understood the appeal of no-experience presidential candidates.  If we get on a plane, we want a pilot and co-pilot with experience.  If we need surgery, we want surgeons with experience.  If we need something repaired, we want somebody with experience.  I think people of all stripes generally agree with these statements.

But when choosing the leader of the free world, arguably the most influential head of government on the planet, with access to nuclear weapons and an ever-growing list of presidential powers, all of a sudden it's fine to pick someone with no experience, elected or otherwise, in government.  I've seen this trend on both the left and right, usually among, shall I say, more "low-info" voters. 

I'm glad this trend is on the wane, no doubt partially due to anti-Trump backlash, although I'm sure it's only a matter of time before people forget, and it becomes more acceptable again.

And why would anyone with a brain in their skull think they'd be good to support? Or were you being sardonic?

I presume he's joking.  Every time I've heard those names mentioned as possibilities, it's been in jest.  And I think they both live in Massachusetts, which would seriously complicate things if it ever really happened.  Article II of the US Constitution says: “The electors shall meet in their respective states, and vote by ballot for two persons, of whom one at least shall not be an inhabitant of the same state with themselves.”

The common myth is that the President and VP can't be from the same state - this briefly came up in 2000 with Bush/Cheney, as Cheney lived in Texas for a while - even though he represented Wyoming in Congress and the Cheneys are generally associated with Wyoming.  Cheney ended up selling his Dallas home shortly before the election.  While technically they can both be from the same state, it's generally avoided because they'd have to forfeit that state's electoral votes - in 2000, the loss of Texas's 32 electoral votes would've prevented the ticket from getting to the 270 electoral votes needed to win, and would've thrown the election to the House of Representatives.
