@Pringlescancel my vote for Adlai Stevenson, I transfer my vote to Other since there isn’t a real left wing option.

Sounds good. I have a small requirement for third party bids to make it as an option. If they're hovering in the 0.50-1% range. 

Socialist and Union parties were essentially dead by the 1950s. (I wonder why)

@Mishfox

I just want to give you a heads up my friend. Adlai Stevensons running mate in 1952 was Senator Sparkman. An Alabama segregationist. 😕 

Why vote against Ike? 😞 

I'm just teasing, but I thought you'd like to know. 😄 

Eisenhower was good on civil rights, but his constant militant anti communism eventually led to many democratic regimes being overthrown by the CIA and many unnecessary wars in third world countries. This trend has had terrible effects on the working class, and it started with him.

What do you mean by 'militant anti-communism'?

He was complicit in the red scare where anyone who said anything wrong was labeled COMMUNIST and executed. He was also the architect of Bay of Pigs and other moves to antagonize socialist nations because of his obsession with communism taking over. Eisenhower played a part in this, especially in overthrowing democratic nations and installing oppressive “banana republics” because MUH COMMUNISM. This is just one example.

1960 was a huge toss up for me. I think Nixon would have been a better president in 1960 than 1968. For sure. But Kennedy is a mf man

It's also pretty tough for me. I'd ultimately go with Nixon though because I think he's better and smarter when it comes to Foreign Policy. Nixon is also pretty good on economic issues. 

In general, had I lived in 1960 I'd feel like too much media attention is going to Kennedy and he's a guy who "thinks he's so cool." (which he is really, F for respect.)

Nixon is the quiet, workaholic who'd make necessary, pragmatic decisions the country needs. Realpolitik for example. 😄

Nixon was certainly one of the best foreign policy leaders in history. Except for the madman theory shit lmao (still don’t know if that was 4d chess or 4 IQ chess). 

Also I just learned a week ago that Kissinger was still alive. Somehow I thought he died in like 2000 or something.

Yeah... hard to make a very pragmatic looking man seem very irrational and on the verge of lunacy. 😛 

In Dobs 68 RP I did things a bit differently 😉 

(Ended up winning Vietnam hehe. Kissinger, and Donald Rumsfeld) had a major role and got the Medal of Freedom. For their role in the Treaty of Saigon. Which annexed North Vietnam into South Vietnam. 😎

Also won the Nobel Peace Prize for it. Nixon top 10 for sure. 😛

Trump was such a troll I miss him sometimes (referring to the red button on the Oval Office desk)

Haha, I'll admit he can be funny at times. The fact that you can drink 12 diet cokes a day... like damn. I suppose I could drink 12 Cheerwines a day, but I'm definitely more of a nice, cold, sweet tea like most southerners 😛 

The fact that the diet coke is brought in on a silver platter... LOL

I used to drink six coke cherries a day and I can’t even imagine doubling that.

Was he a good president? No. But he was the funniest

Did the person you're quoting just say that Nixon invented a style of foreign policy created by Konrad Adenauer about a decade or two earlier, complete with the German name, or am I mistaken? 🤨

No, but I said it was an example because it was his, and Henry Kissinger's foreign policy approach! I would've said "Nixon invented realpolitik."

Funny thing is that supercentenarians who are on the list of the oldest people verified on record are usually not rich, or even very well off (though not necessarily dirt poor, either). And, to date, only one verified person who has been a head-of-state or head-of-government in their life has lived to over 100 (a former Dutch PM who reached 104 LONG after retirement)

Not surprising at all considering how stressful being a head-of-state can be.

Interestingly enough Trump didn't seem to age one day in office (however he looks 10 years older now after losing the election compared to last year, interestingly)

It could be because he is the all knowing, one and only Q...
