  1. Who would you like to see run in 2020?

    Another few I'd like to see run: Mike Pence Mike Huckabee Newt Gingrich By the way @Patine, I thought about what you said, and I decided, you're right. I should give him the level of respect he actually deserves and change my profile picture. So I upgraded him. :^)
  2. Who would you like to see run in 2020?

    Uh...er...I never said I viewed him as some top military officer...? It's a satire thing.
  3. Who would you like to see run in 2020?

    Yea, I personally would put his earliest bid for the presidency (Assuming he even tries) at 2028. I believe he stated (in response to some calls for him to run for mayor of NYC) that he doesn't want to run for any major political office before his kids are out of the house. In 2028 his youngest would be 16. But like I said, those picks were regardless of how likely/unlikely they are to actually run.
  4. Who would you like to see run in 2020?

    I expect Trump to be the leading Republican, and my vote for "want" originally goes to him anyways. But lets just say it HAS to be someone other than him (Regardless of likelihood to actually run): Donald Trump Jr. Rudy Giuliani Jeff Sessions Ben Carson Ted Cruz Marco Rubio Nikki Haley Sarah Palin
  5. President Trump

    I never said that. What I said is that if we went by popular vote, we'd be throwing everything that isn't a huge population center under the bus. Besides, the states don't have an equal amount of delegates per state, they still decently reflect populations, so the electoral college isn't silencing the people all that much.
  6. President Trump

    In my opinion, the electoral college is necessary. The reason we use that instead of the popular vote is because the founding fathers knew that a "true" democracy would be bad, as it would be a tyranny of the majority. Major population centers like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and so on, are HEAVILY Democratic. You can look at the county-by-county maps and it shows the country at LEAST 75% red, yet Hillary is still scratching ahead in the popular vote. Imagine living in one of those red areas and being told you lose because a few big cities went the other way. Without the electoral college, it'd be a big F-U to the smaller states with low populations such as Montana, the Dakotas, and so on. The electoral college makes things fair. One interesting thing I one to point out though is I've never seen liberals complain about the electoral college until now. They were very much for it just 5 years ago, but now that their candidate lost, they suddenly bombard it with hate.
  7. President Trump's Cabinet

    My main picks/predictions right now are Rudy Giuliani or Trey Gowdy for Attorney General, Stephen Bannon for Chief of Staff.
  8. Election Day Thread

    @vcczar The results weren't EXACTLY like any of my Trump win-predictions, but I was surprisingly close with my "Silent majority roars" scenario, eh?
  9. This one isn't as serious as you've all been listing, but I think it'd be a nice comic relief moment Nov. 3rd 2016 - Old video surfaces of Gary Johnson faking heart attack during debate with Anne Marie Buerkle
  10. I've created 6 maps per candidate that I think are definitely possible when looking at a victory for each candidate. (Remember, I'm not saying any of these will be the outcome. These are just within the realm of possibility in my opinion.) - TRUMP - Dead Heat: http://www.270towin.com/maps/D3m63 Silent Majority Roars: http://www.270towin.com/maps/zGJXw Failed Latino Turnout: http://www.270towin.com/maps/KjD6n Michigan Rebellion: http://www.270towin.com/maps/wo4WE McMullin Can Have Utah: http://www.270towin.com/maps/nyrZY Battleground Turnaround: http://www.270towin.com/maps/jKxEe - CLINTON - Typical Polls: http://www.270towin.com/maps/XDK78 Decimation: http://www.270towin.com/maps/dRv18 Super Latino Turnout: http://www.270towin.com/maps/PDnp1 Florida-Shmorida: http://www.270towin.com/maps/woKyJ Heartstopper: http://www.270towin.com/maps/6JjDd Inversion Confusion: http://www.270towin.com/maps/YpkgZ Feel free to comment any of your own ideas or critiques on these.
  11. New Fictitious US 2020 scenario

    Loving this, very interesting so far.
  12. I don't have Infinity, only the 2016 Demo, so if my VP choices must be in the game then I apologize. 1) Republican 2) Connecticut 3) Trey Gowdy, Jeff Sessions, Mike Pence, Herman Cain, Ben Carson. I'd also consider Nigel Farage and Milo Yiannopoulos, but they weren't born in America, so they aren't allowed. 4) Stats: Leadership - 3 Integrity - 4 Experience - 2 Issue Familiarity - 4 Charisma - 4 Stamina - 2 Debate - 3 5) Platform: Immigration: Far-right (Tad much though, I'm between Right and Far-right. No large wall on Canadian border, and immigration allowed as long as it's legal) Taxes: Right Health Care: Far-right Government Spending: Center-right Military Intervention: Center-right Role of Government: Right Corruption: Far-right Defense Spending: Far-right Social Security: Right Unions: Right Free Trade: This is a complicated one given how it describes the positions, they don't really reflect real life correctly. I suppose I would be center-left. I'm totally against outsourcing/I believe in keeping jobs in America and punishing those who move overseas, and I support reducing government regulations and letting free trade flourish. Basically withdrawing from things like the TPP that restrict our trade. Iran: Center-right (Although, I would really prefer Far-right, but that could spark WW3) Education: Right War on Terror: Right (Although, I would really prefer Far-right, but as with the Iran issue, that could spark WW3) Abortion: Center-right Same-Sex Marriage: Far-left Gun Control: Right Energy: Right Environment: Right
