My platform is pretty much the same as yours, Dems4America.

With the exception of Personal Tax where I would be CL, because C would be keeping the Bush tax cuts for the rich and I strongly disagree with that.

I wish there was a "Diplomacy" or "Foreign Relations" issue position because I also think we could be doing a lot better in that regard as well.

Oh yea, one more thing! :D On Same-Sex Marriages, I possibly would go from L to CL.

But I do feel that we're on the same page for the most part, just on slightly different levels with certain issues.

By the way, how can anybody have the Left position on "Terrorism"? Isn't the Left position on Terrorism, "We should surrender to the terrorists."? (Which, if you ask me, is a little unfair to the Left because I don't know any major, or even minor, Left-wing thinker or politician that openly advocates surrendering to the terorists. I know this is just a game and all, I just thought that was a little unfair. In my scenarios, I change that to "We should negotiate with the terrorists" which sounds a little better to me, even though I still disagree with it.)

And the Right position is equally as scary.

:lol: No one has picked it yet.

I was trying to find an issue that everyone could agree on. Renewable Energy at the CL position is the closest thing that I can find.

Right: 7

I've only played as myself two times, and didn't think to do so until recieving inspiration from this thread. I run as a Republican Governor from Michigan, with the following stats (26 total, 1 less than Reagan, 1 more than Carter):

Leadership: 4

Integrity: 4

Experience: 4

Issue Fam: 3

Charisma: 3

Stamina: 5

Debate: 3

I've been victorious in both times running as myself(Played Myself/Powell v. Kerry/Edwards). The first time was a nail-biter where I picked up only 48% of the popular vote, but still managed to win in the electoral college with 282 votes. The second time I did much better, trounced Kerry in the first and third debates, and managed to pick up the left coast the last week of the campaign; 51% of popular vote and 380 in the electoral college.

:unsure: directd. I thought that a single L stood for the Centrist-Left position and that the double LL stood for the full left position. I don't mind disagreements but please try to look closely before you accuse me of not telling the truth.

I think it's unfortunate that people who are seriously conservative automatically get associated with Hitler. That of course doesn't mean that they might not earn that dubious honor...

The difference, I think, is not so much in policy preference, which the platform slider would not indicate, but in rhetoric and tactics.

Normally, a person has to show some extreme triumphalism/bloodlust/thuggery in their posting before I'll stoop to calling them fascists.

E.g., if he said "We'll kill all the Muslims right before we destroy all the communist Democrat Party traitors!" Or quoting Ann Coulter at length. That would be fascism.

But he hasn't, and I don't think he would. It's offensive and wrong to whip out the F word.
