Gee...this promises to be a well-behaved forum
2002-04-24 12:37:22 PM  
Wow, two flame wars in one day! What are the odds?

Conversely, one could argue that the republicans are going to lose in November because they stand for letting corporations run roughshod over people's rights in the name of "the market." Democrats are (ostensibly) against this and stand for patient's rights and environmental concerns. They just don't stand very firmly; that's their real problem.

You've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything.

2002-04-24 12:38:05 PM  
What an empty fluff piece of an article.
Democrats don't need issues until 2004, Bush is farking up with regular consistancy on his own.

It's not like Bush has issues, either.

That hasn't kept them from getting elected in the past

And the Republicans do?
C'mon, the entire political scene is so centrist now, there's very little difference between either side. Really, the Republicans say their economics are supply side, and the Democrats say theirs is demand side. And that's about it. Their both social moderates, just one with legs draped on one side of the fence, the other with legs on the other side, but they're both sitting on it.

Hawkins can dream with the farking Freeper all he wants, we're going to own this shiat when the Baby Boomers die off.

Patients rights and enviromental concerns? A democrats only concern is pulling the wool over your eyes to make you THINK they care, so they can more heavily tax and make more dependent upon the goverment the people in this country.
2002-04-24 12:40:34 PM  
I think they post opposing side flame wars just to split up the traffic some. must be tough on the threads to get 300+ entries.
2002-04-24 12:41:08 PM  
Democrats are better looking than republicans!
2002-04-24 12:41:57 PM  
Sute they stand for something:
1) taking all your earnings in taxes
2) socialism
3) censorship (brought to you by Tipper Gore)

Since both parties are hardly distinguishable from one another one could argue that there is only really one party in American politics. Welcome to Soviet Amerika.

THere you go, BlockedIP. Gore's daughters are far cuter than Bush's. Of course, Reno throws the curve off a bit.

So, we get this instead of Newsmax today?

Bah! They're both the same...

Vote J.R. "Bob" Dobbs in 2004!

Kid: Mommy, Mommy- what's that burning thing over there?

Mom: Now that's just a flame war beginning on the Fark comments page, honey. Just keep walking quickly and we'll be lucky not to get burned too badly.

I always just feel like I'm voting for the lesser of two evils anyway.

My neighbor isn't from the US (She's been here for 2 1/2 years). Even though she married a US Citizen and could become one, she is choosing not to. She told me the only thing that becoming a citizen really would get her is the right to vote, and she doesn't feel that she could find anyone she would want to vote for.
2002-04-24 12:45:19 PM  
Ouroborous- Yup. What good is freedom of choice when there is nothing to choose from? Let's see, which do we preffer, a mindless political puppet, or a humorless plank of wood? One may kill us with bad decisions, the other with boredom. NEither option is good, so how do you choose? I know, leave it to half-blind octagenarian retirees!
2002-04-24 12:45:22 PM  
The Democrats may lose in November, but we'll still get the majority of the Popular votes, Fark that college - electorate shiat !

Thievin' Republicans will steal another one !!! Huzzza !!!
2002-04-24 12:45:37 PM  
We need the democrats! Who else will tax the hell out of us and give our money to homeless, jobless farks?!
2002-04-24 12:45:46 PM  
Republicans five times as likely to molest children as democrats. It's true, there are studies that confirm this.
2002-04-24 12:47:18 PM  

Aren't these House and Senate elections? House elections are by popular vote in the districts, as are Senate votes. The electoral college is used only for the national vote.
2002-04-24 12:48:07 PM  
Invade Canada now!
(almost as pointless a discussion, but much more humorous.)
2002-04-24 12:48:17 PM  
ummm...Senate votes are popular throughout the state, not by district.
2002-04-24 12:48:50 PM  
Yeah! I've always hated Saskatchewan.

The baby boomers will outlive you guys. You guys will be dead of aids, drugs, wanking off too hard....

Even Chelsea is hotter than the Bush twins.

Of course, I'd still do em both.
2002-04-24 12:49:55 PM  

What are you smoking? Jenna and Laura are much hotter than Chelsea!

The idea that democrats "tax you to death" is one of the most disingenuous republican conceits. Basically, republicans want to lower the tax burned on the extremely rich; the democrats don't so much. The average american doesn't stand to make or lose more than $1000 per year (probably lots less) under either tax plan.

I would normally agree with the republican stated ideal of reducing the tax burned on everyone, wealthy included. The problem is we've got ourselves into a huge, untenable ponzi scheme with social security and we've got to finance it somehow. maybe the democrats are pulling the wool over our eyes, but the republicans are yanking the rug from under our feet, and trying to make us like it.
2002-04-24 12:50:50 PM  
They both suck arse, vote for whomever else is running.

Well, it's from Right Wing News, so it must be true. ;)

Since both parties are hardly distinguishable from one another one could argue that there is only really one party in American politics. Welcome to Soviet Amerika.

Ouroborus, that's why campaign finance reform is so dangerous. If the elected government controls who gets money to campaign, and how much, then the government in control at the time may continue to run without opposition until a bloody revolution resets the power balance.

Money = Free Speech

You are not your political party!

Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic.

Democrats are corrupt communist tree-huggers and must be destroyed!

Republicans are corporate-loving corrupt fascists and must be destroyed!

The two-party system is what makes America great! :)

Um... tax "burden." Damn, I almost did it again...

He'd get my vote. The SubGenius must have SLACK!!!

following the premise that the democratsm will lose because they dont stand for anything...wont the republicans lose due to the same clause? VOTE FOR MONTY BREWSTER1111
2002-04-24 12:55:51 PM  
BlockedIP, well, young democrats get their pop morality from MTV. And it's not as if most of these artsy-fartsy democrats even understand the science behind environmental positions they take. They just know that they don't understand, and being afraid comes quite easy.
