1. soo.. *checks RDN rules* anypony care to tell me who I should vote for in the upcoming election? And, lest we forget, 'why/because' is an important persuasion tool.

    1. @pony Well, it depends on what election you are talking about.

      1. @hakupony The U.S. presidential election. I'd peg you as Obama maybe?

        1. @pony I think I have a dirty mind. When you said 'I'd peg [@hakupony] as Obama', I pictured some girl wearing an Obama mask.... 'pegging' someone.

        2. @pony I would vote for Obama - this time even more as I'd done it when he was against Mc Cain since the democrats seem to be more unified to take responsibility. About the policy, yo could say I'm against everything republican :/

          1. @hakupony I assume you have good reasons for believing that way?

            Wednesday, 16-May-12 16:57:43 UTC from web
            1. @pony It's arather simple question: what kind of country do you want to live in? I personally value individual freedom and personal economic safety. The other question is: who is more competent? I don't know much about the republians. I guess Ron Paul is not bad for a Republican. apart from my position in Gay rights, there isRomney ... I just can't take this man serious.

              1. @hakupony yes. You and I differ on certain gay rights issues of course. :) That's one of my major obstacles in bringing myself to seriously consider Obama. I'm really unsure about what might happen either way economically, though, whether Obama or Romney gets elected. I still might vote Obama if I can be convinced that 1.) his liberal agenda will fail and 2.) his plans for the economy will succeed.

                1. @pony But is the question of gay marriage even a federal affair?

                  1. @hakupony that's what everyone seems to be asking. My wife believes it should be left up to the state (we're both members of the same faith as Romney of course), but I prefer that action be taken on the federal level if it's in line with what I believe.

                    1. @pony You could vote republican for your country and democrat for the presidental office - this would propably be best for your interests.

                    2. @pony Seriously... The other day you said you hoped polygamy was legal so you could engage in it... Yet youre anti gay marriage, this isn't an attack, this is just a case of "DOES NOT COMPUTE"

                      Wednesday, 16-May-12 17:26:15 UTC from web
                      1. @purplephish20 ^//^ well to be honest I was mostly kidding/fantasizing about the polygamy thing. dunno if that helps at all.. I think it should stay illegal.

                2. @pony when I was young and had no sense, I saw my friend eat his morning cereal not with regular milk, but chocolate milk. I was 5 and soo far grew up watching cartoons show cereal in white milk and parents serving me cereal in white milk, so I tattled on him trying to argue it was wrong. Even though it had nothing to do with me and had no effect on me or the parents in any way. I was quickly told by his parents that I shouldn't have any reason to be upset over something that had nothing to do with me. # @hakupony yes because lots of legal things concern regular marriage, i.e. taxes

                  1. @crusader8 I do like Aesop's fables, but I feel that, in this case, the chocolate milk my friend wants to (continue) using doesn't belong to him/her.

                    1. @pony but then you're warping the analogy to fit your argument - choosing chocolate milk represents sexual preference, not whatever it is you think they're taking from anyone. (It was a true story by the way, I actually did try and tattle lol)

                      Wednesday, 16-May-12 17:34:44 UTC from web
                      1. @crusader8 That's a cute story! Well I suppose if chocolate milk is sexual preference only and not gay marriage then I agree. I'm not exactly a stereotypical adult male teleio/anthro/gynephile .

                        1. @pony why do you think something is being stolen if they get the right to marry? That's a very unhealthy and unreasonable perspective. And yes I did mean gay marriage not preference, I was just typing quickly
