If Box of Rocks (R) was the only other choice, then yes

Halogamer would probably be happy if a nuke went off in America if it meant the Republicans were able to regain power.

Well if a nuke did go off in the US it'd happen in one of three places.  NY, DC or California... all democrat leaning ares....

 

So....

 



No, I wouldn't vote for him in such a case...

But he's already made his first mistake with me by appointing Mitchell as the mideast envoy. Huge mistake.

He's just being melodramatic ...

Canada is currently being governed by a minority conservative government, and late last year the Conservative Prime Minister (Stephen Harper) tried to take advantage of a weak opposition Liberal party and their inept leader (Stephan Dion) and to change campaign finance. Without going into too much detail, the changes would be very negative for the Liberal party (potentially forcing them into bankruptcy) and only moderately negative for any other party.

Needless to say this did not go over to well with the Liberals and they decided to form a coalition with the less popular socialist party (NDP) and the separatists (Bloc Quebecois). Now, most Canadians didn’t have a problem with the proposed changes to campaign finance and agreed that a party should get the bulk of its funding from its membership, so the coalition tried to sell itself on the conservative government’s lack of stimulus for the economy. Unfortunately for the Coalition Canadian’s do not really want or see the need for stimulus on the same level as other countries, and the idea of a coalition government is amazingly unpopular.

Recently the Liberal’s broke their own constitution and appointed a leader to run the party who is far more likeable and competent than their previous leader; and it is unknown whether he would actually support the coalition. The Conservative government is tabling a budget early this week which has some stimulus spending in it as well as some tax cuts; if the budget is voted down another election could be called or the coalition could be asked to run the country. With what is in the budget it will be difficult to vote it down, so I would expect the Liberals to demand concessions from the Conservatives in order to abstain from the vote so that the budget passes.

So what if it was Box of Rocks (D)?

 

I would think you should be more concerned about a person and how he does, and not focus so much on the letter in parantheses by his name ^_^

I have a hunch.. that whenever a US election comes around more people will vote for (R) no matter what than (D), it's like the Democrats have to win a large majority of undecided voters every time.. correct me if im wrong?

 



 

 

The only nukes ever actively used to kill people were used by the us and 911 happened under a republicans presidency. The chances of a suitcase nuke being detonated is slim to none and if someone was smart enough to get one into the united states I doubt having a republican or democratic president would really help.

you're sort of on the right track there.

There are not as many republicans, but they are much more organized and ideologically similar, so they function more like a bloc.

There are more democrats, but they represent more of a coalition of different groups, i.e. minorities, women, the LBGT community, the Jewish community, etc. etc. Because they are so diverse, they don't always agree on everything and naturally is not as united or as organized as the republican party.
