    Politics War with Iraq

    The democracy is being paralyzed by the internal feuding between the different religious sects. If that rift isn't bridged then a democracy can never exist in Iraq. Unfortunately it's very difficult to smooth out such tensions that are centuries old.

    College/ Universities

    Anyone here go to or know about Chapman University in So Cal? I'm pretty interested in the university. Berkley, NYU, and Chapman are ones I'd like to get into.

    Season 5 Syd & Vaughn

    Vaughn wouldn't leave her again, but I sort of hope she says no. I think the writers will handle it better than just "no" but some sort of rejection would create an interesting plot line.

    Veronica Mars

    Great show. It's sad barely anyone watches it though. The one UPN show I can sit down and enjoy. Anyone else watch?

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    Um I think that's exactly what Bush did. Use Daddy's influence to coast through his entire life in an alcoholic haze until he reached his 40s and decided to run for governor. With no political experience his main asset was his father's money and his last name. Same thing for Hillary. When your...

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    Edwards would have more political experience than Bush had entering The White House. He's definitely staying in the limelight and of course his decision hinges on whether Elizabeth Edwards can recover fully from her breast cancer. She's responding incredibly well according to her doctors so...

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    If we're serious about winning in 08' we need to look at two candidates in my opinion. Marc Warner and John Edwards should get our backing. Warner is a successful democratic governor of Virgina. Virgina, the state that hasnt voted Blue since LBJ. Warner is young and makes a great candidate in...

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    Obama won't be ready to run for a while. I'm really hoping we can win the O8' presidential election and I'm sure Obama won't run then. If we don't win the 08' election I'd like him to run in 2012. He needs time to get himself used to the inner workings of the government and he's got to build up...

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    Im glad Dean is the new DNC chairman too. Definitely a step in the right direction. However, when i say we need to offer valid alternatives to Republicanism I mean we have to fight for our ideals concerning gun control, health care, stem cell research, and the War in Iraq. We have to come back...

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    We need to avoid controversy. If faced with a controversial question we need to provide an extremely eloquent, concise, and clear answer. Democrats DO NOT have the moral advantage at the moment. We have to wait for 10 or 15 years before we will. Once our youth generation comes into power there...

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    I'm not saying we abandon our stance on Gay Marriage or Abortion, but we have to stay off the topic. The Republicans garnered "the moral vote" by addressing these issues. We have to come to the realization that the current youth movement will be much more accepting of current democratic ideals...

    Politics the death penalty

    I don't understand your argument AliasHombre. You advocate the death penalty even if the person is found guilty based upon false pretenses, but question the morality of locking up a murderer or a rapist?

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    Alright AliasHombre no need to call anyone a douche bag. I'm not calling Bill O'Reilly a douche bag even though I think he is. The thread is meanto to promote ideas on how to help the democratic party, it's not a bashing thread. Clinton erased the debt and freated a projected surplus in the...

    Politics Oil Drilling in Alaska

    Public transport does become a problem at some point simply because of the large expanse of land that this nation encompasses. However, my idea would be to promote Public Transport heavily within the cities and for commuters traveling to a major city. If we can increase rail lines and buses...

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    Alright you bring some valid points. We are losing a battle of ideas and this is clear in the results of last November's election. We need to re-evaluate our ideas and return to what worked so well for us in the 1990s. We need to re-attach ourselves to fights we know we can win not ideological...

    Politics the death penalty

    Jails are an extremely rough place. That's an understatement. Murderers (And Rapists IMO) deserve to be kept in jail for life. There should be no chance of parole or release unless new absolving evidence has been brought into the case. Let them rot away in jail, but don't kill anyone. An eye for...

    Politics Oil Drilling in Alaska

    We have to start preserving our environment and decreasing our dependence on foreign oil. In order to achieve that we've got to start looking for other means of transportation. Increased use of public transport and increased funding into new versions of automobile engines could be very...

    Politics The New Democratic Party

    A lot of the members on this site are Democrats. But it's become fairly obvious that our current dogmas, or those from November 2004, are simply not as appealing to the electorate as we felt they were. I felt Democrats and Republicans should have a place to discuss ways to mend the Democratic...

    Politics guns in america

    Not everyone is you AliasHombre, a lot of people may not have the same self control or fearlessness that you say you have. A lot of people would feel safe with a gun with them at all times. However, what you're proposing are steps to anarchy. We can't allow everyone to carry weapons just because...

    Politics Attack on Abu Ghraib Prison

    Dude that is complete cynicality. How can you, as a person, as a privileged citizen of the United States say "better there than here"? It's our responsibility in the world to promote peace above anything else. It's our responsibility because we have the power in the world. Because we are the...
