  1. Looks to me like someone didn't bother spending any CP on increasing Issue Familiarity or Debating Skills

  2. I am done. I am done seeing this forum continuously left to locked threads, bad-faith arguments, and constant fighting. I am done seeing people I highly respect being roped into fights with people who have no regard for their arguments, and who would much rather engage in throwing away opposing evidence, refusing to recognize their opponent's points, acting superior to others, and all around being a negative influence on this forum. I am done with every post being a flame war, and I am done seeing flaws in our moderation system exposed through the recent arguments and flame wars on this forum.

  6. Something I've noticed - neither of them are particularly good at contextualizing. They both tend to make references to things without really explaining what they're talking about, in a way that may make sense to those of us who follow politics closely but could just confuse people who don't.

  12. This is just for fun and based off a poll I made about a week ago. Took me forever to calculate the results but here goes. Here's where we would possibly fall as 2020 candidates on the issues: Far-Left: Scored higher than 51+ left @avatarmushi @TheMiddlePolitical @MysteryKnight @Rodja @vcczar @WVProgressive @Centrist Emperor Kerzaris (Now the most extreme +68, despite saying the country is better off after Trump) @MBDemSoc Left: Scored between 31-51 left @Mark_W @Zen

  13. President Hollingsworth gives a speech after the death of Hamilton Fellow Countrymen, Our nation emerged from the conflagration of revolution just 17 short years ago. Our form of government has stood for only a decade. As I enter office as your third President, I seek to lead a nation which cannot afford to devolve into rule by bullet rather than by ballot. I should hope to amend the fractures between North and South, Republican and Federalist. Our duty as Americans is to prove our model of government the finest on earth seen since the days of Athens and the Roman Senate. Our duty is

  14. "Keep your comments fact-oriented and if you want to attack, attack an idea, not a user." Keep in mind there are people from various political backgrounds here. The great advantage of a place like this is you get something unusual - many smart, well-informed people from different political backgrounds discussing and analyzing topics. But that comes with a risk - people with politically divergent views often don't have similar values, and can not get along very well. So keep comments focused on facts. If you want to attack, attack an idea, not a user.

  15. So let me ask you guys this. How old are you? 17 years old Do you like Mountain Dew? I used to, years ago, but these days it tastes like toilet water. Have you played Mass Effect? No. Ever been to Arizona? No. Ideal place to live? Portland, Maine, and I plan on moving there after I finish my education Did you vote?(I don't care who you voted for. I'm asking if you voted ) No. Joe Biden isn't worth committing voter fraud over . Preference: Cake or pie? Cake. Especially Ice-Cream-Cake, I have one for my birthday every year.

  18. Unignoring you for a second to respond to this as I saw someone quote you. You've been getting it too easy. Calling him immature and unaccountable is a personal attack in itself, you said he "cries to the admin", earlier today, another personal attack, you frequently use "_______ _____" and stuff in place of insults when we all know what you're trying to say. You say vcczar constantly cries to the admin and doesn't act like an adult when it is you who is doing it. This is one page (of 23) of your post history. You've contributed to the recent toxic culture more than anyone here has

  21. Agreed. I happen to disagree with @PoliticalPundit's analysis, but he's been much more civil than @Patine has been lately. You've got to calm down, man. The personal attacks left and right have got to stop. Look at how @vcczar responded - pointed out a perceived flaw in reasoning and politely explained why he finds that to be an important part of the argument. It's very civil, even though you can tell that @vcczar and @PoliticalPundit are disagreeing. V clearly states he disagrees with the assessment, in fact. Likewise, just the other day I was a clown and thought something was unconstitu

  22. I actually do understand that you’re trying to make a rational argument here, and I appreciate that as it’s a rarity on the internet. But a few things to clarify, as an Iraq War Veteran myself. 1) “The VA” is actually something like 480 different hospitals across the country. Some of them are, indeed, poorly run. The one in Phoenix made national news a couple years ago for being shockingly bad. But most of them are outstanding. In Michigan, for example, the civilian hospitals got immediately overrun with COVID and it was the VA hospitals there who stepped up to save the day by “activ

  23. I’m back! I had to spend four hours acknowledging the presence of my wife and daughter. It was harrowing. But now on to more important things: mass effect! Age: 37 mountain Dew: I’m not sure if I’ve ever had it. I’m a Coke drinker. Mass Effect: Yes. I was obsessed with the second game — I thought the suicide mission was a masterpiece. My wife still jokes about how heartbroken I was when one of my favorite characters died. Didn’t love the third game as much, but I was still into it. Then I reached the ending...and it was just the WORST. It shit all of the rest of th

  24. Map is below, which is much more critical of Biden's chances than most pundit forecasts. The colors are in Safe, Likely, Leans, and Tilt. If Trump wins all the tilts, then it is a 269-269 tie, which is frightening. I created an algorithm that adjust the avg state polls, attempting to factor in tends in demographic support, trends in polling, trends in economics, approval, favorability, and many more. Basically, the numbers don't matter as much as which way these things are trending overall. One factor that is really helping Trump is that Hispanic support is trending better for Trum

  25. Thoughts from your friend kitten! Very classy start, both men were civil and Trump contained himself unlike other debates that I have seen him involved in. To me it was a strange sight to see but rather welcoming. The moderator did a good job going through question after question and keeping the flow moving. Did Trump kill the debate? No and yes. He certainly fired up his base but that could fire up independents/centrists/moderates that were undecided. Did Biden pull out a win? I say no but he didn't lose because he was the typical Joe Biden that we have seen in debates as

  33. It's so great to hear from all of you guys. Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions even if they're silly. I think I'll make more posts like these on a normal basis. Maybe ask you guys on scenarios and how they can be improved or if you'd like to see any particular scenarios made.

  35. I really think you're missing the point. Rules should always be challenged, and questioned, so that they're improved. They also should be clear and universally understood, if they're not then they're not good rules. Nobody is trying to cheat, or step over anything, they're trying to bring clarity and ensure that the rules benefit all of us rather than make things worse.

  36. I'll admit for a period of time on this forum I was considered the troll too. The difference is I realized how annoying that was to everyone else and acted like a normal person. I'm not asking you to leave, I'm just asking you to reconsider your behavior and be more tolerant of others and their opinions before you call them "Trump deranged" and dumb shit like that. "Come on, man!" @vcczar is one of the best members of this community. The effort that he puts day-in and day-out to keep this forum the place that I come back into each day is incredible and something he doesn't get as much cre

Rally (4): Turnout is diminished but Nixon lands it. Endorsement (8): An excellent speech from Rockefeller totally topples the current order and unites Liberals behind Nixon, merging them into his moderate base. Overall: +6. Nixon has an underwhelming week... and then Nelson Rockefeller announces the entire establishment of the GOP has finally come around to support Nixon. Rally (10!): Goldwa

  46. I think Pence is pulling away right now. Kamala started strong with the first 2 topics, but since the economy just doesn't look ready and getting caught flat footed. Of course the media hasn't given Trump/Pence a win ever in their political careers so idk. We'll see on Election Day.
