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

  2. Admin needs to focus on his games more than anything. I could care less about what he says on here. I have bought his games because they have much potential to be explored. This genre of gaming has its niche, so It shouldn't be hard to please it.

  3. Here is what I would say about the composition of the court... 1. Chief Justice @Conservative Elector 2: Solidly a member of the conservative bloc on the court, and a rigid textualist. Most economically libertarian on the court. Justice C was appointed by Bush in 2005 to replace William Rehnquist. 2. Justice @Reagan04: Another member of the conservative bloc on the court, and a huge proponent of civil liberties versus government intrusion. Very opposed to the regulation of intrastate commerce and skeptical of the vague claims of programs such as the Affordable Care Act. The most se

  4. 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

  5. @admin_270, @The Blood both made professional, courteous, apologies where they didn't blame anyone for what they said or did. I'm glad this was the conclusion to this. Hopefully everyone involved has learned something for this, I know I have. Everyone on this forum is a wonderful person who contributes to the unique culture we have here in their own way. I usually despise talking about politics with people, but with you guys I can do it all day. From @vcczar's leadership, insight, polls, and all-around contribution to @Patine's wittiness, excessive usage of adjectives, and his intelligenc

  6. I don't know how to articulate my points better than to say them outside of a vote. Everyone has the right to their own beliefs and to post them in a free and open manner, including in this forum. That includes the admin, regardless of political view. People can jibe each other, whatever. I admit that I do it as well. But I never will make a personal attack on someone else's intellect, and I thought everyone on this forum was better than that. I learned that I was wrong. I have been on this forum since 2018, and I have never been treated worse than the way I was treated today. It hurts me

  9. After last night, I think it would be nice for everyone to get to know everyone a little better. Share some things you're fond of doing outside the forum with the forum I have been an avid MMO player for a while now, and that mostly comes in the form of a (former) child's game called Wizard101. Ive played for 8 years now, and have finally beat the game for the first time I also enjoy reading, I love Game of Thrones (Tully/Tyrell are my favorites), Lord of the Rings, and more. I like to write, whether it be fantasy or RP. Outside of that, I play trombone in our marching and

  11. I'm a university student! I'm trying to become a history teacher or a government teacher Current history classes I am in are the Vietnam War and in Oct I'll be taking East Asian History. I like to read a lot. I have a bookshelf overflowing with books. I play video games, not too often tho especially since I've been focusing on university. Final Fantasy is one of my favourites, especially VII and XV. I make scenarios for PI, PMI,CI. If you ever have any scenario ideas, share them with me and we can make them a reality I listen to all sorts of music, especially soundtrack

  13. I enjoy making scenarios frankly. Hence why I got the games originally. I love playing the scenarios afterwards too. I've also learned a lot in scenario making since my first scenario. Y'all should see the wackiness of a scenario I'm making these days But enough scenario talk from me, Expanding to include more electoral options is a dream! I'm tired of FPTP and preferences We need electoral reform! PR and MMP! Heck it'll just make me want to make even more scenarios for all of you guys!

  14. Absolutely, I haven't played the game since 2017-2018 and don't really have any reason or desire to at all anymore. I'm here for the great folks, discussion, and RPs that we do as a community. I love this community, the game and its admin are just an unfortunate side piece of our community. As far as I'm concerned, 270soft forum is for a great community, not a subpar game.

  15. With 2 months to go, it's time to update my election prediction. As some of you know, I have said for the last while I think it's 80% Trump (my evaluation is Trump is 80% likely to win the election given the information available at this time), and that I expect this number to go to 0 or 100 as we get closer to the election. I do not intend to predict 50-50, for that isn't a prediction at all - it's a non-prediction. My new prediction is 80% -> 85% Trump. This is based on many criteria. Most basically, it's based on my evaluation of the personalities and abilities of the two

  16. Shitshow. I said this debate would decide if I vote for Biden or Jorgensen and I'm definitely leaning Jorgensen. It's funny because at first I thought Trump was winning but he completely blew it after that. Biden won the debate, but they really both lost.

  17. FEDERALIST CONVENTION 1800 Federalists gathered in New York City to choose their delegates as President and Vice President of the United States. Early convention favorites were Alexander Hamilton, the star of the party, and John Trumbull Jr., Governor of Connecticut. Major issues to be hammered out among the party was how far to go on slavery, as well as how much to position themselves away from the legacy of President Adams. Trumbull and Hamilton both seemed well positioned to strike the middle line on both issues. However, some radical elements of the party gathered their strength and r

  18. I am studying at university full-time, by taking courses mainly in history, politics and East Asian studies. I love watching sports and good movies (especially Lord of the Rings and Star Wars), playing video games and collecting various things. Currently I am buying (old) NFL and NBA cards the most. Besides that I like trains, playing chess and reading about the Supreme Court. These are basically the most vibrant of my hobbies. I hardly find a field not interesting as you can see on my full chart on the left... I didn't even mention the NASA, mathematics or (classical) music.

  20. You know, there is a reason why I don't post too often on the forum(Aside from the RPs which are run here). That reason is because this forum has become dominated by people like you @admin_270. It has become dominated by wackos who will spend hours arguing to defend Trump, hours going over the same arguments over and over again, and hours turning this forum into a sad warzone where they can gloat over their claimed intellect. And you what's the saddest thing about this? We have someone running this forum who is just another one of these wackos. He inflames the conversation, constantly attacks

  22. Answer the above questions so that we can put together our forum court as I was talking to @vcczar about. Please pick the answers that you feel represent you best. There are 5 mega categories and within them several smaller categories. You may pick as many answers as you feel you need to to best represent your philosophy on the issue but if you feel your need to pick contradicting answers, please elaborate in the thread below. We start by looking at the Bill of Rights and the individual liberties granted to people. Then I ask a few questions about the structure of government and chec

  23. The hoops you jump through to justify the worst authoritarian impulses of this man are truly astonishing and quite frankly it's why we don't see you as someone that isn't a Trump supporter. The impression you give is to be entirely on the Trump Train. If you can't criticize this with great clarity than I cannot trust your objectivty on that matter.

Based off our responses here is how we rank as SC Justice with Rigid Traditionalist Originalists at the top and Broad Progressive Reformists at the bottom: 1. @Conservative Elector 2 (Actually no one was even close to as Rigid Traditionalist Originalist as him -- he'd be way right of Scalia, resembling something closer to a judge in a theocracy.) 2. @Reagan04 (the next most conservative judge is actually something of a swing judge -- think Justice Kennedy or Chief Justice Roberts) 3. @SilentLiberty (basically the same as Reagan04) 4. @WVProgressive (Kind of a surprise.

  26. If someone doesn't believe this than they should acquaint themselves with science. I'm not going to accomodate science denialism. I will, however, do my absolute best to help them understand the science. Beyond that, society doesn't have to stoop to the level of folks that don't understand 21st century medicine in order to accomodate them. We don't need to backslide to the lowest common denominator.

  29. I feel the need to clarify all four of my answers. 1. I don't actually support the Merrick Garland decision at all. But with McConnell being the decision maker in both cases, he should be consistent. The Supreme Court is supposed to be apolitical. McConnell has turned it into an abomination. It is remarkable that there is not a single person in the entire world who expected that McConnell would actually stand behind his own statement this time around. Literally every single person knows that McConnell stands for absolutely nothing other than seizing control by any means possible.

  31. With 51 Days Left until in my countdown to the election, I'm going to post an analysis of the states+DC for the remainder of the election. I'll start with the safe states and make my predictions as I post each state (+ DC). Each day I'll post a new state. Each analysis will be from a Democrat perspective, since I've been researching how Democrats have performed since 2000. I give DC's 3 EVs to Biden. Nate Silver has Biden at 90.7% chance of winning DC. That seems very low. I'll say 99%. Richard Nixon in 1972 was the Republican that came the closest to winning DC in 1972. In that el

  34. The President is secretly ecstatic about the arrival of the news. The normalization of France is paramount and this land could cement the United States as formidable forces with which to be reckoned if they could secure it. The President knows that it is the north, particlarly the Mid-Atlantic, who are the most in favor of expansion. This can and will be leveraged by the President. The administration will prepare to enter into negotiations to purchase the land, however. He informs his Secretary of State to ready a correspondence. We absolutely wish to preserve the slave trade, and I im

  38. He should stick to making and developing his games. I think I clearly see why a lot of badly needed features (like non-FPTP electoral systems for PMI and CI, among others) are always on the backburner with ETA, and we focuses on suggestions of minor details and tweaks more enthusiastically. It's obvious where his time is going.

  40. While there is a lot of light shone on the fact that polling was very off in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania in 2016, less is talked about the opposite effect - something I've been thinking about now for a few days. I believe that Democrats stand a better chance in Texas than people may think (even if it won't come with an outright victory). Take this, from the polling of the 2018 race between Beto O'Rourke and Ted Cruz Emerson was the closest pollster in Texas - yet still had a red bent. Pollsters are getting complacent in states that they believe should be blue

Keep in mind - I'm no leftist Democrat, wouldn't vote for Bernie in the primary (definitely would in general though), not a supporter of M4A, have serious reservations about the Green New Deal. This morning, I woke up tired. Tired of all of this mess that we went through year-in and year-out. The losses we've suffered. I woke up defeated - again. Somehow, this one hurt more than the rest. We lost a fighter, an icon of the liberal movement. Give yourself a day to mourn and wallow. But tomorrow, s
