    1874 UK Map needed

    But to elaborate, the rest of what needs to be done are relatively small things, but tedious things. For instance, I have to go back over every seat and input who the incumbent is. I also just discovered that there's a place to put the names of all the MPs competing in the election. So I have to place every name in. I need to finish putting stances on the issues that Patine sent me. One or two of these issues might change if I can't find enough information for them to be relevant. I need to add events for January and February 1874 (This election is only 24 days!).

    The 25th Ballot has ended (results are below). No one is inducted. Dickinson moves to veteran ballot. **New Rule: As per JNewt's suggestion. Anyone on the 10th ballot will move to the Veteran's Ballot if they receive 50% support on ballot 10. Also, I don't think most people noticed that they were supposed to vote for or against Baron von Steuben on the Veterans Ballot. I'm just going to do the Veteran ballots at the very end. I'll give Steuben another chance when I do this** Ballot 26 - Select no more than 10 nominees for induction.

    2020 Election Issues Poll

    I don't think they're as far-left as Jones is far-right. They're at least somewhat contained by the establishment. I don't think there is anyone as far out as Jones. Maybe Avenatti if he had Sanders's politics.
  10. Today
  11. 1952 United States Presidential Election "The central issue is the threat of Communism. Which candidate can win the confidence of the people?" - Election Blurb.
  12. I just get a blank screen no matter what I do.
  13. John William Bricker (Republican), 38th President of the United States of America, Remainder of President Vandenberg's Term: April 18th 1951 - January 20th 1953 Highlights of the remainder of the term: Both the War with Germany and the War with Japan are officially ended; President Bricker attempts to veto the Mutual Security Act, it launched a major American foreign aid program, 1951–61, of grants to numerous countries, The main goal was to help poor countries develop and to contain the spread of communism but he is veto is overridden by Congress; the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 is passed, The Act abolished racial restrictions found in United States immigration and naturalization statutes going back to the Naturalization Act of 1790. The 1952 Act retained a quota system for nationalities and regions. Eventually, the Act established a preference system which determined which ethnic groups were desirable immigrants and placed great importance on labor qualifications. The Act defined three types of immigrants: immigrants with special skills or relatives of U.S. citizens who were exempt from quotas and who were to be admitted without restrictions; average immigrants whose numbers were not supposed to exceed 270,000 per year; and refugees; The Treaty of San Francisco is ratified, This treaty served to officially end Japan's position as an imperial power, to allocate compensation to Allied civilians and former prisoners of war who had suffered Japanese war crimes during World War II, and to end the Allied post-war occupation of Japan and return sovereignty to that nation. This treaty made extensive use of the United Nations Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to enunciate the Allies' goals; Puerto Rico became an unincorporated organized Commonwealth when its constitution was ratified.

    Alex Jones Poll

    All banning him does is give Alex Jones more publicity
  16. Also, public political support for and membership a united Celtic nationalist alliance party gives them a Pan-Celtic banner to use to coordinate sincerely and genuinely with Breton underground insurgents also fighting the new regime in France, as well as a leverage point to convince certain business and political interest in the Republic of Scotland to offer covert aid.

    Why is this happening?

    That's partly what I figured. The AI has gotten really good in primaries, and reacts very well to user state infrastructure and foot soldiers, makes playing as an underdog really difficult. I know that voter blocs/demographics are possibly planned for way down the line, but I wonder how much that could help? I guess maybe not all that much, since it still boils down to each state having definite and persuadable voters. Since a lot of the AI models real life I'd say, I guess the question is, what happens if a candidate puts a ton of money into a state that can't be won? I mean you don't want to go *too far* (recall several of the states Trump targeted were considered out of reach, but in reality the Midwest was ripe to flip). On the other hand, you have examples like Bush putting $10+ million or so into California in 2000, and he only got 41.7% of the vote there. I mean in real life even if you campaign in an out-of-reach state is there an absolute ceiling on momentum? What would be the response (maybe the Super PACs would target it hard)? Just thinking aloud, but I wonder what makes sense here.
  18. They merged into the Celtic Nation Party politically in terms of their Westminster activities, but now view both the governments in London and Paris as enemies to target politically (and perhaps with renewed insurgent and "terrorist" activities) to liberate all of Ireland.
  19. Just read through everything, and I'd say it's pretty well thought out and in-depth. I do have a question about Sinn Fein. Did their support dissolve after Ireland was taken by the French?

    And more importantly, sitting Senior Senator from Virginia and Ranking Member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.

    2020 Election Issues Poll

    Warren? I didn't say Warren. I said Warner. As in the moderate, centrist former Democratic Governor of Virginia.
  23. Reagan04

    2020 Election Issues Poll

    Stick with it for the analogy. He is certainly on the Right politically. Also, that Trump picture REALLY makes him look like David Duke, especially portrayed by Topher Grace.

    Alex Jones isn't even necessarily right-wing though. Pro-Trump but that doesn't make him right-wing.
