  - Wow, what intelligence that took. I am awed! n-t  Logical   Apr-10-11 09:47 PM   #24 
  - What you said was so absurd that it necessitates no response.  Paradoxical   Apr-10-11 09:53 PM   #28 
     - Again, awed! Nt  Logical   Apr-10-11 11:25 PM   #39 
     - Clearly you chose your screen-name as some sort of ironic symbol.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 12:45 AM   #50

                    - Ok, thanks! I appreciate your response! nt  Logical   Apr-11-11 07:49 AM   #123 
     - While that could certainly be said about your post, the post you responded to is spot on. n/t  BzaDem   Apr-10-11 11:26 PM   #41 
        - Spot on to the few who believe in such childish nonsense.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 12:46 AM   #51 
           - Fortunately, the number of people who vote for third parties is so negligable  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 12:53 AM   #53 
              - "Fortunately"? So you're saying that you enjoy our corrupt two party system?  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 12:59 AM   #56 
                 - Enjoying recognition of reality is not the same as enjoying the substance of that reality.  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:03 AM   #57 
                    - You just spent an entire post blaming the 2000 election on third party voting.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:06 AM   #59 
                       - Yes, I did, because it is entirely true.  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:09 AM   #62 
                          - The two party system exists because individuals allow it to exist.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:13 AM   #64 
                             - Actually, the two party system exists WHETHER OR NOT you allow it to exist  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:18 AM   #67 
                                - I said "human intervention". You said no that's false, it's "PAST human intervention".  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:29 AM   #75 
                                   - No, you said the specific intervention of voting in a current election.  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:31 AM   #76 
                                      - "...voting in a regularly scheduled election is somehow enabling the system"  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:37 AM   #79 
                                         - "who's validation comes in the continuation of it's function"  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:39 AM   #81 
                                            - "You think that a vote within a system does something to enable or disable the system"  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:43 AM   #84 
                                               - Yes actually. Third party voting did NOTHING to disable the system. It did EVERYTHING to elect the  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:44 AM   #85 
                                               - Pardon me for asking, but how old are you?  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:46 AM   #86 
                                               - Not old enough to have voted to ratify the Constitution in 1789. Beyond that  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:47 AM   #87 
                                               - You're afraid to disclose your age on a message board?  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:56 AM   #89 
                                               - Same reason most people don't disclose their age. n/t  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:57 AM   #90 
                                               - That's not an answer. I'm wondering why you don't want to disclose your age.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:58 AM   #91 
                                               - Here  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:59 AM   #92 
                                               - Again, not an answer. I already know you want it private. I want to know why.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 02:00 AM   #93 
                                               - Because I feel like it?  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 02:01 AM   #94 
                                               - Because your age and length of political participation likely weighs heavily on your "opinion".  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 02:02 AM   #95 
                                               - Surely though if there was something wrong with my argument or "worldview"  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 02:06 AM   #96 
                                               - My critique of your argument is done. That's been done for a while.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 02:07 AM   #97 
  - BS is thy name, STFU!  akbacchus_BC   Apr-11-11 11:09 PM   #162 
  - And so is any progressive . . .  markpkessinger   Apr-10-11 11:12 PM   #33 
  - But that assumes that losing an election cycle or two will ACTUALLY help you achieve your goals.  BzaDem   Apr-10-11 11:27 PM   #42 
     - The reality is we won't know until we try . . .  markpkessinger   Apr-10-11 11:29 PM   #46 
        - Are you kidding me? They tried exactly your strategy in 2000. Didn't work out very well now did it?  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 12:48 AM   #52 
           - You've swallowed a bunch of nonsense. The Supreme Court and corruption cost us the 2000 election.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 12:57 AM   #55 
              - ... and they would not have been able to, had the strategy of the above poster not been used.  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:04 AM   #58 
                 - Why don't you nail down a coherent argument and then get back to me.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:08 AM   #61 
                    - If you don't understand my argument, that is your problem (not mine). It is not complicated. n/t  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:10 AM   #63 
                       - Don't flatter yourself. You're argument is convoluted because it's contradictory.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:14 AM   #66 
                          - Says the person who can't name a single contradiction. n/t  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:19 AM   #69 
                             - How about the one where you said a negligible amount of people vote third party.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:20 AM   #70 
                                - That isn't a contradiction at all. An election can EASILY hinge on a negligable margin.  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:22 AM   #71 
                                   - It is actually a massive contradiction. Unless you are willing to redefine negligible.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:25 AM   #73 
                                      - Let's put it this way -- such a small group has negligable influence in pushing the country to the  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:28 AM   #74 
                                         - So they have negligible influence on politics other than costing us entire elections.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:33 AM   #77 
                                            - They have negligible influence in pushing the country to the left, but significant influence in  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:34 AM   #78 
                                               - You are grasping at some mighty fine straws.  Paradoxical   Apr-11-11 01:39 AM   #80 
                                                  - That is my argument (regardless of how hard you try not to understand it out of convenience).  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:41 AM   #82 
  - And anyone voting for Obama is helping the Corporadems destroy this country.  RaleighNCDUer   Apr-10-11 11:28 PM   #44 
  - The difference is that your proposition is false, whereas the proposition you responded to is true.  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 12:55 AM   #54 
     - The one does not negate the other.  RaleighNCDUer   Apr-11-11 01:07 AM   #60 
        - But that isn't what you said -- you said voting for Obama somehow hurts the country.  BzaDem   Apr-11-11 01:13 AM   #65 
           - You claim there are but two alternatives - Obama and Not Obama.  RaleighNCDUer   Apr-11-11 11:38 AM   #135 
  - The banksters are destroying this country and TARP proves that they own both parties. nt  phasma ex machina   Apr-10-11 11:37 PM   #47
