  1. If you had never joined this forum, we would still be having political discussions.

  2. Believe it or not, while it may be a minority of people, some would like to see what Patine is talking about be realized, even if it is a small chance. I enjoy K4E and PMI more than I do PI. It's a matter of personal preference that doesnt need to be mocked.

  3. I know I'm not a heavy hitter here, and I've tried to stay out of the drama, but could we maybe move persoanl talk to another thread and keep this one strictly focused on discussing the next update? I'm referring to everyone including myself when I plead this. Don't give me any "oh shut up" or "oh you don't know what <username> said to me" or whatever. This thread is now 14 pages long and I guarentee that 70% of them has been dedicated to this pointless back-and-forth sniping and bickering.

  4. Because that means you're an idiot snowflake who cant take anything even though you brought on a stupid conversation. Ban super, ban anyone, ban me for all I care. Super was commenting on a topic you had brought up and put his own feelings on the subject. You complain about censorship and then ban him for absolutely nothing. Pathetic. You're nothing more than a far-right Redditor troll who owns a dying forum (that was caused by you too). Just don't melt is the important thing, I suppose. I wanted to stay here to discuss the games as needed. Instead you wanted an echochamber.

  6. Well, at least you've gone from "a few fringe theories" to "as though I have said outright this theory is incorrect" Keep going! But seriously - I can't block you, I'm the admin here. You don't seem to like me, and that's fine - in politics, lots of people aren't compatible. But perhaps you should just ignore the main threads where political discussion sometimes comes up. This sort of back and forth isn't sustainable or healthy.

  9. I'll take a vacation from my hermitage to say that I'm the one that designed 2020. Anthony had the final say on anything if he had a strong disagreement on anything, but any disagreement he had was not as politically biased as he (or any of us) can appear on the threads.

  14. Personally I do not think Private companies should have any say in the machines like manufacturing or anything else. I believe that all voting should be by paper ballot and hand counted, yes even in major cities, even if it takes a while to find out results. I believe that it would be quite easy to change what contractor a state uses for their machines and data, but just up to the state legislatures. I am quite interested in what Georgia and Arizona end up doing in the next year leading up to 2022. Its all by what the states want and do not federally but honestly I would like to see the FEC ba

  15. I can only speak for my home state of Minnesota, but yes the regulations must be changed to make everyone who feels disenfranchised some confidence that their vote really mattered and counted. A few weeks prior to the election I placed an online order at Taco Bell and when I got their I did not give the same name that is on my account Jake vs. Jacob and I was forced to show my Id to get my order, but when I went to vote all I had to do was say my name so they could check if I was on the list and boom. I got my ballot and voted it and put it into the machine. Why should picking up a Taco Bell

  16. Let’s remember this same exact poster harassed me for 5+ posts after a nearly identical progression happened. Just ban this poster since it clearly doesn’t get the message. or just wait till they keep attacking you while you ignore them another 4 posts or so

  21. I don't think it will be an active issue (but who knows, maybe some more viruses will accidentally escape from the Wuhan lab?), but the Biden administration's handling of it might be an issue. I see that as more realistic for 2022 mid-terms, though. My best guess is COVID-19 is basically done - massive drop off in numbers of documented cases in the U.S. (globally as well), starting before the experimental vaccine rollout was happening in any significant amount, BTW. SD is a good example - I think, like typically happens with viruses like this, it was a rough couple of months, but now they

  23. Peter Navarro broke down the Trump agenda into five points: “Let’s understand the source of the resilience,” said Navarro. “Basically it’s the five points in the Trump administration policy compass: the tax cuts, the deregulation, fair trade, you’ve got strategic energy dominance, and you’ve got strong defense spending. I am fully anticipating a second Trump term. If you have a flip of any or all five of those, all that resilience goes away.”

  24. I've spelled it out before. Non-interventionist, pro-American manufacturing, pro-'fair' trade, pro-constitutionalist judges, pro-energy independence, anti-illegal immigration are some of the big ones.

  25. I don’t care if he can win the nomination, he would easily win that even if you combined the field against him. I mean the power ranking in terms of best chance to win back the White House from sleepy Joe. Trump is 3rd bc I believe DeSantis and Tucker can use a similar platform and keep his base if they were to win. trump being off Twitter might actually help him long term. Im Deeply concerned he’ll never win back those swing state suburban voters if he were to run in a general.

  28. You still haven't told me this PLATFORM. His whole campaign was based self-promotion, myths and nonsense, negative attacks, complaining about various grouping, "screwing him over," and a very few stable policies that were disasters in the end (like the sudden shift to protectionist trade policies). I'm not really sure what actual PLATFORM you're referring to, here.

  32. Trump really showed the beauty of the American system of government. In a place like the UK or Canada people do not vote for the candidate but for the party, so all members of parliament believe the same thing as the party that they represent. Here in America Donald Trump and Mitt Romney are in the same party but quite different in ideas and I personally think that is a wonderful thing. One thing that is lost in current state of politics in the US is that no ne can just stop and talk to the other side and try to see it from their perspective. I think that Donald trump really did something usef

  33. I agree that Trump is more of an old-school conservative than what the establishment wanted him to be. I see Mike Pence as both a pacifier to the Neocon/GOP establishment and as a huge blanket to religious Republicans-as his whole October surprise didn't really seem to work when it came to the final evangelical vote split. Trump was as much a nazi as Ben Shapiro was. He was not a radical racist like a certain Alabama governor of the 60s. Nor was he a god-king populist or Neocon warrior. He was a mix of everything in the center, with flakes of radicalism from both sides loosely mixed in.

  34. Not to make the thread too political (mod can delete this post if it goes in that direction too much), Trump has a lot in common with the GOP that was founded in the 1850s: • Protectionism on trade • Support for central bank/soft money • Unilateral foreign policy • Spending on infrastructure and subsidies Can’t speak for other people, but people like Reagan and the Bushes made me register as a democrat in 04. Donald Trump made me switch to republican. I’m not a fiscal conservative. I’m definitely not a social conservative (atheist, pro-choice, bi...so having Pence

  35. Ya, adding an early 2024 might make sense ... We'll see. Definitely that's where the interest is moving. Ya, Biden's stamina should be extremely low. I think he was 'lucky' to have public health authorities advising against large gatherings as an excuse to not have a strenuous campaigning style.

  37. Unless you're doing something egregious like Superezione did, you don't have much to worry about. The forum got fairly bad near the election with all sorts of people making personal attacks on other people, and some people are still responding related to that.

  38. Life is too short to put up with extended, strange, unprovoked personal attacks. That's not wanting an 'echo-chamber'. I welcome diverse opinions on all sorts of topics. But if you don't like it here, you're welcome to go somewhere else.

  45. I know many others who want a Student Council feature added to the game as well. It's a highly sought after feature for the game and being that this is an American game at its roots, I hope the features such as adding a water fountain to the playground and increasing the milk cartons you can pick up at lunch are the top priorities after Admin figures out the game speed and save load. Anyone who says otherwise is lying and wrong. As a paying customer I deserve my voice to be heard!!

  46. I now push my suggestion for a student council President mode in the game as the next update and anything less than that is foolish and stupid and has no relevance to the current game. The minds and views of our youth in the United States make the most sense as the next coming update far more than any other country's election. It's far more relevant than anything else suggested so far and I will not hear any other opinions on the matter. Many others agree with me as well.

  48. Hi there. I created a campaign on Presidential Infinity and I wanted to upload it to the 270soft campaign page. I tried logging in as the instructions on the website told me to do. I assumed I should use the same login I used to create this "NorthernDemocrat270" account, but it didn't work. I'm curious what I'm supposed to long-in under in order to be able to upload my campaign.
