    My 3 favorite video games are: Super Mario Bros. 3 (NES), Romancing SaGa 2 (SNES), and Ys I and II (Turbografx16). I also like anything mecha. My favorites are Gundam, Fafner, and RahXephon. I prefer older games to newer ones and emulate them frequently, but don't tell the FBI. Huge fan of Godzilla and Gamera as well. Love those guys to death.

    BREAKING: George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States, dies at age 94

    Nixon's reelection was an odd one out too, as Hawaii also voted Republican in the 1972 presidential election. It's quite interesting to note that the last time a Democrat has really won a landslide was in 1964 when LBJ clobbered Goldwater. Do you guys think there might be more landslides (from either party) or at least a significant realignment election in the future? Or will the states vote largely the same going forward as politics becomes more divisive?

    A woman can beat Trump and a minority can beat Trump. Anyone can beat anyone. But the question in 2020 is whether or not the Democrats can regain control of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin after losing all three in 2016, which cost Hillary the election. If the next Democratic nominee wins all three of those then they've already won the damn race so long as they keep all the states Hillary kept. Remember: Bush in 2004 had to essentially win every state outside the Blue Wall in order to win reelection. If he had lost Florida he would've lost his reelection bid. I think the odds favor the Dems in 2020 (even conservative pundits like Ben Shapiro seem to agree with this assessment, and it should be noted that Trump won those "Blue Wall" states with incredibly thin margins) but if 2016 is anything to go by, anything can happen. EDIT: I'm watching some clips of the Cruz vs. Sanders CNN healthcare debate and god, I wish the 2016 campaign was Cruz vs. Sanders. It would've been a lot more... insightful, I think, than whatever the fuck the real 2016 was.

    This guy is a troll. Stop responding to him.

    As someone who lives in California, I was quite surprised Prop 6 (repealing the gas tax) wasn't passed Most reports indicated a majority of Californians (59% I believe) disliked the tax, so to see it remain must be an upset to lower tax advocates And with Gavin Newsom becoming governor (ehhhh), I wonder how a Republican will be able to take back the Governor's seat in California. I think they ought to nominate a more center-right candidate like, say, Charlie Baker of Massachusetts or Larry Hogan of Maryland in the future. A liberal Republican, essentially.

    Some thoughts: Looks like Mitt is going to Washington D.C. after all Surprised Gillum lost, it seemed like he was winning I don't want Nelson to lose he seems like a nice guy UPDATE: Seems he lost Newsom seems to be on the trajectory to winning here in California. No one's surprised. Wonder how the props will go down Scott Walker actually struggling Beto seems like a nice guy, shame he's losing but it's to be expected Dems didn't really win much here honestly. I'm watching the daily wire podcast and I agree with them in that nothing special really happened here. It followed trends usually followed after a presidential election. Some of the top progressive candidates (Gillum, Rourke) have lost their elections despite strong showings and dems are getting creamed in senate races. Blue Wave this is not. Ben Shapiro: "The Democratic party is the party that has openly embraced anti-semitism" Yeah, okay. Give me a break. Certain swing states (Florida, Ohio) going Republican will spell huge trouble for Democrats going into 2020. That's all I have for now.

    I know Brazil's history of military dictators

    For what it's worth I'm not Brazilian nor do I live in Brazil Considering what he has said about the Brazilian Congress in the past, I don't think it'll exist much longer under his presidency, which makes me believe that what he proposes to do will be, uh... extremely easy to implement.

    As expected, Jair Bolsonaro wins Brazil's presidential election 55.2% to 44.8% What a time to believe alive

    Ugh, I really fucking hate Candace Owens. She's such a puppet. No one should give her the time of day. Seriously.

    Though I believe this, I'm going to play devil's advocate. How so? Aren't their ideologies/worldviews completely at odds with one another? Are there any examples/issues that show they can find common ground?

    And with that, the Supreme Court now officially leans conservative. Today is a big win for conservatives.

    Simple - he has a conservative voting record. Conservatives like judges with conservative records. But yeah I more or less agree with you. This guy can't answer yes and no to save his life. It's infuriating how simple these questions are too. His inability to answer basic questions really didn't help during the allegation hearings, either.
