2016 Election
« on: March 18, 2015, 08:44:38 pm »
What the hell, let's get this trainwreck started.



This will be the thread for discussing all aspects of the 2016 elections, from state and local candidates flipping out and doing stupid things, to which Republican will lose to Hillary.

What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

What are you talking about Ink, the general election is this year, not in 2016.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

At this point the SNP could probably win some seats in England if they bothered running there.

It's the dawn of 3-party politics. (RIP in piece Lib Dems ;_;7 F)
Not a winner anymore.

Because first-past-the-post is so healthy for third parties.

I know by American standards UKIP seems very sensible and liberal but you have to understand that our entire political spectrum exists in what you would call the "commie zone".

The main problem with UKIP is that people too quickly bring up the whole race and nationalism thing. Their far bigger problem is the fact  that that is their sole issue. They don't have any other concrete policies - Farage says one thing; the BBC ask the person in the party actually responsible for that issue and they have to clarify that Farage may have misspoke.

Like when they gained council seats a few years ago. After those elections, my gran (a long-serving Tory Councillor) said she didn't understand why anyone would vote UKIP to their town or county council. Councils sort out bin collections and things like that, not the immigration policy for the country. Then she told the story of how a local councillor had to step down because he printed a cartoon of a Muslim being spit-roasted over a fire.

The more local the office, the more entertaining and sadly unnoticed the antics that get the politician in trouble.

Its more then likely they will end up in a coalition with the Tories,but UKIP would never make it on it's own.
