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

  3. 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.

  4. 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

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

  12. 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. 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

  15. 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

  16. @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

  17. 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

  21. 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

  23. 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

  25. 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!

  26. 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.

  28. If you had said what he said to you, I probably would have ignored it or not have registered it as a direct attack. I'd say it's a 2 out of 5 on offensiveness, in which I'd say a 3 would be needed for a ban. Also, know that I've probably defended people against Patine more than anyone on her. @Actinguy can vouch for that. I get nothing out of defending Patine. It's just that you seem a little too eager at times to play the victim, in my opinion.

  30. Last election, my upper middle class Ohio neighborhood was a sea of “lock her up” signs. About a month ago, I noticed that the split between Trump and Biden signs was more 50/50. Well, I just walked through my neighborhood on foot, intentionally counting. And we have a sudden infestation again. 23 Trump sign houses, 7 Biden sign houses (including mine.). Plus two houses that had no presidential sign but just “pray to end abortion”, and one that had no presidential sign but did display a LGBT flag. One trend: A lot of the Trump houses also had signs about supporting the po

  33. I actually don't believe that Republican elected officials are really as passionate about overturning Roe v. Wade as they pretend to be. My reasoning: 1) It's not like they've lacked opportunity. Trump took office with Republicans dominating the White House, the Senate, the House, the Governors, the state legislatures, and the Supreme Court. A 6-3 advantage in the Supreme Court doesn't give you anything that a 5-4 advantage doesn't also give you. They've had every opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade and they've made no actual, serious effort to do so. 2) I suspect many of them are

  35. This race will most likely be the best performance by the Libertarian Party ever in a statewide race. They should be pouring all their money into this rather than Jorgensen's campaign. This is the Libertarian Party's best chance to legitimize themselves in a long time, perhaps ever.

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

  43. 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

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.

  48. 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.
