Maybe they're just hipsters trying to be ironic?

COMALite J: The U.S. Constitution neither mentions nor provides for the existence of political parties.


Argue for or against political parties as you wish, just know that this isn't a reason to get rid of them in and of itself. The Constitution doesn't ban them either.

Even if you support Ron Paul, don't sound like you do, as this sort of thinking doesn't go over well outside of the echo chamber.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Salt Lick Steady: DROxINxTHExWIND: No, no, no. I'm a black Democrat because I was brainwashed to believe that White Dems will always vote to give me that sweet, sweet, welfare...even though I work for a living and I do not have a need for social services. I guess I like to see other people game the system because they look like me? I don't know. I haven't figured that part out, yet.

To be fair, you do all look the same.

Apparently. The people in our Beirut and Dubai offices all call me Bob Marley because I have dreadlocks...despite the fact that I am a full shade darker and I look nothing like him.


I think its the way people call me John Holmes even though I'm part Asian. More about the single attribute than overall appearance.

What are you smoking that makes Wisconsin a swing state?

Yes but when it comes to Pres we tend to go more Dem. Republicans blame that on Madison and Milwaukee with the high number of students and minorities. They tried to pass a voter ID act but its in state supreme court now getting decided on. Partly because of ZOMG voter fraud...errr...keeping students and low income people without an ID home on election days.

Weaver95:
If we had 4 or 5 different parties, yes - things WOULD get done. it would be damn near impossible to gridlock government.


Um, Canada and the UK get gridlocked all the time with plurality systems, and that variant of democracy is one of the main reasons that a 10% minority can continue to keep Israel an apartheid state and taunting the neighbors when the other 90% know and state that that's not probably a good idea.

Also, more generally, some gridlock isn't necessarily a bad thing. It can get out of hand, like when the idiots can't even pass a budget on time, but for the most part arguing things all the way out results in better legislation. I think we've rather reached the tipping point with the GOP where they're no longer making a contribution to the system, but when they're gone I hope the new opposition party does its share of fighting things out.

not surprising that the "setup" with Rush & Fluke did EXACTLY what the media and the current administration wanted...the whole election process this year has been one gigantic sham...


Those lazy, stupid, incompetent liberals and their friends in the lame stream MSM media were able to trick Rush Limbaugh - a brilliant man who cannot be fooled by the lamestream deadstream MSM deadbrain media.

HeartBurnKid: Weaver95: GAT_00: Weaver95: GAT_00:

And so would I. I'd love an actual liberal party. But since there isn't one, I'm going to pick based on the choices I have, not the ones I'd like to have. Just saying you want another choice doesn't make one appear.

You're demanding I make choices that don't exist and then you're saying I'm the unrealistic one. Step back and think about that.

so you don't believe in the existence of third parties?

Ones with power? No.

So...you won't help a third party until one gets into power. But a third party can't get into power without your help. you'd rather just keep on doing what you've always done and then believe that magically this will somehow produce different results?

You want to make a third party viable? Here's what you do:

1) Come up with a platform that people can agree on
2) Scrape together money
3) Build a power base in smaller elections -- local, county, state
4) Work on getting House representation
5) Hope the big boys make one hell of a mistake
6) Go for the big races.

It seems like every "third party" just wants to go straight from 1 to 6. And that's never going to work. If there had been somebody doing the unglamorous groundwork all this time, maybe there'd be someone waiting to step in since the GOP went full retard, but there isn't.


This.

I will, and have, voted third party locally.

My presidential vote is NOT going to be thrown away in a vote split just to ineffectively send the message to democrats that I'd like to see them move back to the left.

Also, things many like weaver are missing is that, whether us farkers like it or not, the bulk of voters DO want an authoritarian lean. The do want us to play some level of world police. The aren't strongly in favor of things that I think should be obvious and bipartisan like gay marriage and legalizing or even decriminalizing drugs. They ARE skeptical of science and a very large portion of our country, while perhaps admittedly not great at following their religion, do in fact at least want to believe in those values. They will, if asked to up or down vote their Bible, say they side with it.

Even in a two party race the democrats walk.a very fine line of strong lip service to religion.

People who have never read their Bible and won't go to church more than twice a year are often strongly dismissive of atheists or even deists.

Fark: it just isn't representative of the country's demographics.

IlGreven: Cythraul: coco ebert: Cythraul: Still baffles me how they could think these extreme social conservative measures (specifically against women) are a winning strategy come election time.

Maybe they just don't care, and they're doing what they feel is right, despite the possible loss in the election.

Since when do fundamentalists think about winning strategies in elections? We should really call them what they are- theocratic fundamentalists.

Oh, I don't know about that. I think both parties sometimes go against their principles and play to the middle ground in order to win elections.

Neither side has played to the "middle ground" in at least four electoral cycles...unless you mean the "middle ground" between them. Which is like fighting for the sand in the little sandbox on the corner of the huge island, and not caring about the rest of the island.


If that were really true then the side which encompassed the bulk of the island would have dominated multiple elections. I'm assuming you are referring to how America's middle is not center on the political spectrum. And yet, the right leaning democrats still don't dominate the hard right republicans which should have sent moderated and liberals lining up very strongly behind the democrats. But bush got eight years and our country still veered hard right in 2010 in response to the "socialism" that is Barack Obama.

Now, much of that is apathy related, but still....

2012-03-30 08:39:47 PM

hubiestubert: Roook: Whoops. They forgot women can vote again

To be fair, that is on the boards, but only after a period of "restructuring"...

Obviously, every egg is a potential human. Every period is another human that will never be, so we have to corral women and insure that their every ovulation results in a baby, or have her up on charges of murder. It's really the only thing to prevent millions of American women from being complicit to murdering millions of babies every year. In order to do that, we're going to have make sure that women are impregnated as quickly and efficiently as possible. As men produce sperm at a much higher replacement rate, multiple women will be assigned to good, upstanding males, who will be able to pay for their care and feeding. It is the forthright thing to do. The compassionate thing to do. Those men will have a heavy burden to make sure that every woman in his care doesn't fall into her baby murdering ways. In a few generations, after the murder of potential babies is halted, we can revisit those rights for women again. If they hadn't spent so much time murdering the innocent, we wouldn't be forced to this position, but in the end, it's the only way to stop the whores from murdering their babies...

Obviously, if the sluts had come to this conclusion on their own, we could trust them, but they didn't, and that's why we're in the state we're in today. Because. Whores. Sluts.

It's a winning strategy for everyone.

That is not the discussion we had, idiot. I said the South found ways to totally fark over freed slaves, and that they actually economically benefited from that farking over of the slaves, since they no longer had to concern themselves with providing a subsistence-level existence.

That is a far goddamn cry from saying they were well treated.
