  1. How incredibly unfortunate. This forum is probably one of the most intelligent and diverse group of political minds I've found on the internet and I enjoy it thoroughly. If there's anything we can do to change this, please let us know.
  2. It's been months, but I think I just spaced barred the Grits and the Tories - thus the massive gains for the NDP and Bloc. IIRC the Green's got one and then an Indy got one... but it has been months.
  3. Tom Harkin should have a massive lead in Iowa... Tsongas won New Hampshire IIRC...
  4. My understanding is that the Florida and California decisions are still very much in the works... althought the California one is very likely to pass.
  5. Nothing to do with the scenario itself, but was anyone else surprised by the complete lack of coverage on Walken's candidacy during the show? I thought he'd be a serious contender.
  6. Well there you have it, I suppose in the months since I last looked something appeared. I still maintain that I don't think he's a factor.
  7. I don't think Burns will be a serious contender... I can't even find a picture of him. I would make it a 4-way free for all between Stanhope, Kubby, Phillies and Smith... with the others behind but not terribly (after all, it is the LP. Anything could happen).
  8. Are the populations supposed to be set really, really, low?
  9. I would say that Louisiana is actually becoming more Republican. Recent election results have been very favorable for the GOP, and now with 1/2 of the Democrats NOLA base gone...
  10. How is this any indication that he supports terrorism? All he posted was an article that hypothesized about what might happen. Doesn't mean he supports terrorism.
  11. He's just basically a run-of-the-mill liberal Democrat.
  12. If no one has a majority in the electoral college the Presidential election goes to the House of Representatives where they can vote on the top three vote getters. Each state delegation has one vote. Right now the Democrats control a narrow majority in states' Co-Dels. If a state's delegation is tied, it is considered in deadlock and abstains. Voting continues until one candidate receives 26 votes. And then the top two voter getters in the VP contest are thrown to the Senate where they are elected in a free vote.
  13. I made the same mistake in the begining... thought their logo looked cool.
  14. He's hilarious! And he blows everyone away in the debates. I'd definatley give him a 4 or a 5 there.
  15. Races are better when they're separate... so let's deport the non-whites! Oh, and mandatory shotguns in every home.
  16. I was just think about this too. They should be ranked by EV's and then if they have equal EV's ranked by popular vote.
  17. Right, it's evolved into that and I fully accept it. I'm just saying that there's no where in the Constitution where it says the Courts have the power to strike down laws and thus it's a bit odd that they do it.
  18. However, if I recall my Constitutional law correctly, they were never given that power - at least at the federal level. They decided to give it to themselves (Marbury v. Madison) and have preceded thusly for 200 years. But I could be wrong, of course. Just what I seem to remember of the top of my head at 2 AM.
  19. And none of those are "permanent" bases. We've been there for nearly four years, of course we're going to build some buildings.
  20. I once read a study where they found that the 2004 SSM ballot initiatives motivated just as many, if not larger amounts, of liberal supporters of SSM as compared to conservative opponents of SSM - thus negating the affect of the ballot measure.
  21. I get McCain, Brownback and Pataki the most. Giuliani and Romney hardly ever make it through.
  22. Interesting - that's the exact 2004 results only with Ohio switched.
