  1. Today
  2. Just creating a master tag list to see if I can get up to 10 votes: @vcczar @Reagan04 @Actinguy @Patine @Conservative Elector 2 @TheMiddlePolitical @WVProgressive @SilentLiberty @pilight @admin_270 @Hestia11 @Herbert Hoover @mlcorcoran @Leuser @upandaway @jvikings1 @Rodja @Edouard @jnewt @Nentomat @Kingthero @Sunnymentoaddict @RFK/JFKfan @Mr.Blood @Zenobiyl @Wiw @MBDemSoc @ThePotatoWalrus @Alxeu @Allyn @Cenzonico @CentristGuy @Ishan @billay @wolves @RI Democrat @lizarraba @lizphairphreak @TheLiberalKitten @MysteryKnight and anyone else interested. If I can't get 10 votes per round, then I'll stop this experiment. But it would be fun to create a a top 100 list as created by the forum. See my original post at the beginning of this thread. If you respond to this first poll, then I'll tag you to the 9 future polls.
  3. I'll do the next list once we get 10 total votes. We need 6 more people to do this.
  4. Quite like the idea, though there's definitely more that needs to be done. I'd say the issues and the parties + regions political positions are the main priority. Otherwise, its definitely a campaign I'd like to play more of.

  6. Percentages fixed for 1828 and 1829: House - 1828 and 1829.zip
  7. I'll try to later tonight. And to get that Russian poll voted for too.
  8. I’m trying to keep descriptions brief. Are you going to vote?
  9. You forgot to mention that Mohammed ibn Abd al-Wahab's Wahabi sect is not only the toxic and revisionist false interpretation and practice of Islam (similar to how Fundamentalist, Dominionist, Prosperity Gospel, and Calvinist Evangelical (especially Deep South U.S. and Northern Irish groups) churches are toxic and revisionist false interpretation and practice of Christianity) is not only the guiding principal of terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, but the state religion of Saudi Arabia, one of the two toxic allies and "tails wagging the dog," that constantly drag the U.S., and other Western nations (including Canada, shamefully) into endless military endeavours in their constant defense, sinkholes of money and arms, unaccountability, and full political backing against international consequences of rash actions, internally or abroad, whenever these two primadonna nations snap their fingers. The other such nation I'm referring to in this light is, of course, Israel.

  14. This will likely be a 10 part series. Copy + Paste the list below and put an * or bold the names of those that you feel confident should be on a top 100 influential list of all time. Anyone on this list should not only have lasting importance, but they should probably also have worldwide or near worldwide importance. I'll collect everyone's responses and make a 270Soft list when we finish: Henry Bessemer His steel-making process made steel affordable and quicker, launching a revolution in structural engineering Charles Goodyear Invented the process for vulcanizing rubber, allow it to be used for practical purposes.

  16. Twitter has made a mistake here. Yes, Trump's twitter account is absolutely vile on almost any given day -- but people need to be able to see how vile, and stupid, and incompetent he is. If Trump is willing to broadcast that on Twitter, I say let him. Let the people see what a whiny bitch he truly is. If Trump had never had a Twitter account, his approval rating would be much higher as most Americans wouldn't be exposed to his direct thoughts as often without them being filtered through other members of his administration and thus might believe that things were generally going okay. But now? Too late. Everybody knows who he is now (thanks to Twitter) -- if he never tweeted again, we'd still know exactly who he is. That goes for his supporters and detractors alike. I say Twitter should let Trump do as he will, and let his own tweets blow up in his face on election day.
  17. The reason I voted No is because while what he says is fucking absurd, offensive, downright grotesque. The American people should be allowed that window into the terrible things that really do run through his mind. Every time he tweets it reminds the regret-a-Trumps like me just how awful he is inside and out.
  18. @Woot wins with a bid of 3 IP. He does not take a bonus action. Action to @Leuser to name his cabinet.
  19. I think banning Trump would only make a difference right before election day. This is because they'd ban him only if he went way beyond what he's already said.
  20. How do you know that it has always been a cesspool if you've never had an account? I use it regularly and it doesn't seem any better or worse than this forum, especially if you don't look at the comments on the posts. I follow primarly experts and such, so I get a lot of useful information.
  21. Twitter is a cesspool as it is. It always has been. I've never had an account, and have no intention to, but since newsfeeds and forums are always various people's Twitter posts, it's reputation is highly apparent to me.
  22. Secret bid time. Let’s aim for 8 pm. Let me know if you need more time
