Debate results

According to the fakestream media, Warren is now a top-three contender along with Biden and Sanders. But Biden is still in first place, despite saying that “record players” can solve the problem of segregation and inequality in schools.

  1. “despite saying that “record players” can solve the problem of segregation and inequality in schools.”

    He could have said phonographs.

    “the problem of segregation and inequality in schools.”

    Inequality how? From a long running school district combination battle in Memphis (Memphis school district wanted to force suburban school districts to combine with them) I gather the argument of the suburban schools was that the Memphis School District were profligate spenders. And that they were rent seeking to continue or expand their profligacy.

    Segregation’s a problem why? Don’t the talented tenth enjoy sharing classrooms with their co-ethnics? Race is a construct anyway, right?

    • The question used the words “inequality” and “segregation.” Biden responded with “record players.” I’m just documenting what happened.

      I’m going to vote for Trump. Or maybe I won’t bother to vote, because I don’t live in a swing state so my vote doesn’t matter anyway.

        That’s a good point. When libs whine “OMG, Trump lost the popular vote by 2.8 million” or whatever, what if the vast majority of those 2.8 million were Republicans in California and New York who stayed home?

        Trump winning the Electoral College but losing the popular vote by 5-10 million would only make his victory that much sweeter. It would drive the Dems nuts that there isn’t a single thing they could do about it. If I don’t vote for Bernie (because health insurance) this is how I hope the election turns out.

      • If you live in a safe state, vote Democrat. If you live in a swing state, vote Trump.

        I want to see the saltiest, biggest liberal tears in 2020 when they win the popular vote by like 8 million and still lose the election to Trump.

      • On the other hand, even if you live in a swing state, it’s not like your one vote is going to matter. Even Florida in 2000 was decided by 537 votes.
        The point of voting is to make yourself feel good, not to seriously influence the election.

      • I meant a defense of the question Biden whiffed as if the question addressed a real world problem.

        If the candidates had been asked their position on health care for Bigfoots, I think it worth discussing why these loons believe in Bigfoot.

        Do these people believe inner city schools aren’t getting enough money to educate children or not enough to distribute graft freely AND educate children?

        Do these people really believe greater integration of schools will help black kids generally or are they motivated to give the talented tenth an escape route from there co-ethnics but can’t say that so they blame whites instead?

  3. She’s been top 3 in the polls for a while now, and actually leading in a lot of prediction markets.

    I think the main thing holding her back is that she and Sanders are splitting most of the leftist vote, while Biden has the moderate vote locked up. But eventually Sanders will drop out, and then she can scoop up the entire leftist vote.

  4. In Belgium vote is compulsory, it’s better. The other option would be to restrict voting to 1% (135 IQ or top 1% effective tax payers or a combination of both).

    Censitary instead of equal suffrage would be better. People who think and people who pay should decide exlusively.

    • IQ doesn’t play much when it comes to picking the “right” candidate. Even the smartest mind can’t compute all the endless parameters and data points existing in the world to come to a conclusion based on reason. It is a personal gut feeling that guide every person with their voting decision and it is not necessary that high IQ people will have a better gut feeling than low IQ people. The only difference is that once you have a certain gut feeling an high IQ person will be much better in reasoning it.

      • I think you’re right. Of course Lion is right that smarter people make better decisions in managing most parts of their own lives, but when it comes to making political decisions, I don’t think it’s true at all that high-IQ people manage things better. One of the reasons why that’s the case is that high-IQ people can adjust their lives easily to a change in their local environment caused by their own bad political decisions. So, for example, they can emigrate should their own country suffer the consequences of mass immigration. (And they see nationalistic loyalty anyway as prole.) With no skin in the game, they are much more likely than “ordinary” people to make awful political decisions that have long-term bad consequences. But they don’t care as it won’t affect them personally, nor their families, nor their social status. In fact, the opposite. Indeed their social status is probably enhanced by their political incompetence: as we have seen in the UK with Remainers, and with Merkle allowing unlimited immigration into Germany.

    • “The other option would be to restrict voting to 1% (135 IQ or top 1% effective tax payers) ”

      In the US that would mean the Libertarian Party would regularly win.

      Even Libertarians think this would be unwise, especially since their focus is protecting the process not any given issue or problem. Their point is democracy is about wide debate and general assent, and improving use of structures like localism and juries that protect rights and choice. Countries elect pro-libertarians to national leadership or a strong group in their Parliaments when they’re trying to suppress totalitarians and bureaucracies gone wild, as we’re seeing in Ukraine, Brasil, Norway, and in the past Mongolia.

  5. If instead of 255M potential voters,of wich only 130M vote, you had an electorate of 2.5 M people based on brain and professional revenue level, decisions would be better.

    And people wouldn’t speak about politics because it would be an elite matter and care.

    Bruno

    September 13, 2019 at EDT pm

    • If you had an electorate of 2.5 M based on brain and professional revenue, you’d have a combination of rich people and university professors: Elizabeth Warren/Hillary Clinton voters. It would be a nightmare.

      Somehow, we have to restrict the vote to the upper middle class: doctors, engineers, successful small business owners, and so on. They are the ones that work rationally and value their own time. The rich don’t: they value other peoples’ time. Thus, Elizabeth Warren.

      • 2.5 million voters is still too many to get any actual value out of a decisionmaking pool with above-average intelligence.

        The best way to improve your decision pool is to ensure are consequences for people for given decisions. Leftists pushing for open borders should literally be required to house immigrants in their homes, or pay for their social services. One of the problems is our high level of abstraction & complexity in society removes people from any reasonable impact for their decisions.

    • A very dumb idea. The UK would be subservient to the authoritarian (and appallingly managed) EU. It’s a mistake to believe that clever people make better decisions. Their decisions just reflect their prejudices, and higher IQ people are more likely to have a dumb, liberal perspective – because they’re not the ones who have to live with the consequences of mass Third World immigration, etc.

      • Was your goal to be an ageing bachelor who doesn’t even have one property to their name? Cleverness as measured by IQ is good for dealing with limited problem with a known set of rules, the ultimate example is chess. It doesn’t help you when you need to make general decisions about policies, not even about ones personal life.
        All those people who did go to the right school and to the right fortune 100 company and bought houses when it was still cheap and developed the charm to attract women and all those things you envy so much didn’t do it because of some superior IQ, they did it because of gut feeling, sometimes not even theirs but their parent’s which stemmed from certain upbringing and traditions.
        I will give you that, in the extremes of the bell curve your lack or extra IQ can destroy your life, but most of us are not there, we are hovering around the average and IQ will be only one and not the most significant factor in our life decisions

    • “And people wouldn’t speak about politics because it would be an elite matter and care.”

      We tried a limited franchise before, that’s not what happened.

      What’d happen is that the elites would support policies that make them look good to other elites and not policies that are the best for the nation. If you want to harness the power of smart people, futarchy is a better bet as the incentive is to be right rather than look good. Look what happened in Britain, where the FTSE fell after the Brexit referendum and the stockholding class threw a temper tantrum about how bad it was, but a week later was back above pre-referendum levels. Elites said Brexit was Armageddon, but they didn’t put their money where their mouths were.

  8. 24/7 MSM propaganda + demographic destiny definitely have a shot at winning 2020 for the Dems, but they’re doing their best to give Trumpf a fighting chance. Biden 2016 would have been an existential threat to the Trump campaign, but his mental faculties are worsening by the day. Warren is the HRC reboot that nobody wanted. Bernie is a literal commie symp. Harris is slowly drifting backwards into obscurity. Buttigieg is literally gay. Who are the other ones again?

  10. In my never-ending quest to find videos of hott chix shooting big gunz I came across this one that might be interesting. Vanessa, the host of a hunting and shooting channel, has no trouble at all handling a $2,000 rifle chambered in the huge 375H&H Magnum round. Notice how lightning-fast she works the bolt immediately after firing. Very few men could do as well.
    Now, while you can’t see her face, I looked at other videos on the channel and it turns out that Vanessa is middle aged with a mature woman’s rather chunky face. I almost didn’t bother posting the video for that reason, but given her mastery of this beastly round and the fact that time takes a toll on everyone, I decided to keep it. Enjoy.
