  2. Forum Political Compass

  3. Building a Good Presidential Cabinet

    Lol Dennis Prager Only like @Reagan04's for Ron Paul.
  4. Lunar Assembly 2045

    LPF all the way
  5. Is nobody going to bring up gun control?

    If the US military is so overpowered, why did it take decades to push back ISIS, who are literally bearded, religious hillbillies that have rifles and Toyotas? Just saying. Won't be much different if they wanted to do the same thing to their own citizens.
  6. PoliSim Help

    Instead of limiting my circle to a few select people, I've decided to create this thread so anyone can give feedback since I'm creating this just for the forum (until an official release of a 'Be-President' game by 270soft) Also, I encourage @NYrepublican and @QuickHead555 to post theirs here as well if they want feedback on theirs too. Right now, my first thing is starting popularity percentages for three candidates that I have right now. I already have percentages in mind for the candidates, but I want feedback on if they should be higher, lower, etc. Trump: 39% (FiveThirtyEight currently has him at 40.4%) Clinton: 42% (I don't imagine that she'd do that much better than Trump) Gary Johnson: 48% (I think he'd be more popular hypothetically were he elected, but I still don't think he'd break 50%) What do you guys think? Are these too high/low/right or what?
  7. Is nobody going to bring up gun control?

    I know slippery slope arguments are pretty useless, but putting restrictions on freedom to bear arms, speech, and religion definitely is a slippery slope to restrictions on more basic human rights. Also you sound like you're saying the Mad Max hellscape is a bad thing, lol.
  8. Is nobody going to bring up gun control?

    Lmao. When has this system ever been tested? Unlike Communism and Socialism, an unregulated libertarian society has never been tested. Prove me wrong.
  9. Is nobody going to bring up gun control?

    Apparently locking doors is strictly prison routine.
  10. Is nobody going to bring up gun control?

    Lol, boi. Trump literally said he was going to ban bump stocks, raise the age to buy firearms, and increase background checks to buy firearms. If anything a totalitarian would take away people's guns, but that ain't none of my business.
  11. PoliSim Help

    I will most likely be releasing whatever I have completed by then, so yes.
  12. PoliSim Help

    I know I said I probably wouldn't update for the rest of the month but I wanted to make an announcement here. The project is not dead. Im still working on sub-menus, and will show more screens at the beginning of March. I also wanted to announce that @vcczars project seems to be coming along pretty well and I might contribute some dev time to that next month as well (but this will still remain the main project) Unfortunately I've had a lot of assignments the past two days and haven't had too much time for an update right now.
  13. What party/political designation are you registered with?

    Only for the primaries cuh. Certain state parties allow independents to vote in their party primaries
  14. What party/political designation are you registered with?

    That's a no from me dawg
  15. What party/political designation are you registered with?

    Independent because I am apathetic to both sides but would also like to vote in both primaries. Left-Wing Libertarian if I had to identify with a party. Future Democratic POTUS50
  16. 2nd Political Party Board Game Playthrough

    Agreed, and I'm not saying this just because I don't want competition, I think that having the House and Senate (along with Governorships and the SCOTUS) change realistically as well, with you having to micromanage each aspect is a better idea.
  17. Civics education sucks

    As someone from Ohio (also North of Cincinatti) , we have American and World Government classes that we take.
  18. What Makes a President Great?

    All of these, lol. Duh. Anyone who says one isn't (Left-Wingers for Moral Authority, Right-Wingers for Congress relations, for example), are voting based on an ideology instead of their personal preference.
  19. Political Party BOARD Game

    It's a game that is online that allows you to create and simulate playing board games online with other people (for example, you could play Monopoly with all of the game pieces included) I'm surprised I didn't think of this. Last time I checked though, it was $20, so everyone on the forum might not be willing to give that much.
  20. Political Party BOARD Game

    Just want to throw this in here as someone who works with design. Typically when I design menus and user interface, I follow simple design, without any clutter, using geometric shapes. Your things might be really cluttered, I would suggest perhaps removing the 'Title of the Game', and maybe making the US House Meter a separate game piece or something. I don't know.
  21. 2020 Democratic and Republican Primary (Feb 2018 Edition)

    Biden is done with politics and Bernie isn't going to leave the Senate to become Speaker of the House lol.
  22. 2020 Democratic and Republican Primary (Feb 2018 Edition)

    The Dems look favored to win right now, and he's probably their front-runner for the position. Otherwise, I agree, probably when he's a Senator.
  23. 2020 Democratic and Republican Primary (Feb 2018 Edition)

    Huh, my mistake. Thought it was more than that, because I remember Rubio was one of them. I can still almost guarantee that Joe Kennedy is going to run. He's like the Democratic Jeb Bush. (connected to politics, liked somewhat by his own party, pretty moderate, very awkward looking and acting)
