  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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  20. I appreciate the change. This forum used to be dead before we started talking politics — the common thread that binds us, even when we disagree. There’s only so much you can say about the game — I’d check in maybe once a year to see if there was an update, instead of multiple times a day to see if there’s an interesting discussion.

  26. 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

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

  30. 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!

  31. 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.

  32. 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

  37. A warning to my fellow Biden supporters (or at least Trump detractors): Yes, the polls look good for us right now. But don't get cocky, and don't get complacent. Here's where the national polling average was at 84 days out. (We're actually something like 78 days out, but 84 days is especially illustrative because Dukakis got his ass KICKED and his polling decline didn't start until day 83.) Actual outcome of the election in parentheses 2020: Biden+8.3 (?) 2016: Clinton+6.6 (+2.1, but lost the electoral college) 2012: Obama+0.5 (+3.9) 2008: Obama+2.6 (+7.2) 2004: K

  38. I'm late to this post, but as someone on this forum who identifies as Nonbinary and uses They/Them pronouns (as well as someone who works with LGBTQ) causes I just wanted to chime in with a few stray thoughts. First, many women's groups (and groups focused on other marginalized communities) are trying to step up and be more inclusive of people who aren't cisgender (people whose gender identity aligns with the sex they were assigned at birth) and may be a bit clunky with it without consultation. It's ultimately a good thing, but it does sometimes create some confusion if not explained well

  39. The 270soft board correctly predicted Biden's Veep nominee pick! http://270soft.ipbhost.com/topic/17672-biden-picks-vp-in-a-week/ 51% said it would be Harris in a poll done in July. @Hestia11 @TheLiberalKitten @Herbert Hoover @MysteryKnight @RI Democrat @rhinehart514@gmail.co @Nentomat @Isaacr88 @avatarmushi @Conservative Elector 2 @admin_270 @Rodja @King of the North @jnewt @ThePotatoWalrus @CentristGuy @wolves and @MishFox all called it.

  41. 270soft has a 2020 Presidential election simulator that will automatically track the stats for you. https://www.270towin.com/2020-simulation/ Out of 100 simulations, Biden won 88 times. Trump won 11. And there was exactly one 269-269 split. I have a lot more interesting stats at the end -- but first, some pictures! Here was Biden's most dominant win, 444-94. Honorable mention to Biden's second most dominant win, 441-97: Donald Trump's most dominant win. 327-211. And dishonorable mention to Trump's second highest performance, 322-216. But now the interesting thing:

  42. I appreciate the apology. I apologize for instances wherein I've cross the line. Like others, I think politics is a combat sport, even if we don't want it to be. Politics is more personal than ever in an era of identity and polarization. We have our own ideas of what America is, what it should be, what it was, and what it was meant to be. As with all histories and theories, there isn't really an answer--or correct answer--to this. There's only our answer or our opinions. We drop the term "anti-American" or "not American" when we get angry. I do it. You do it. I think many of us have done

Trump and Cruz got 0% support, which is great. 2nd Round: Removed all the zeros and 4% candidates (got 1 vote): Social Democrats (Sanders/AOC) - 30% Libertarian Republicans (Paul/Amash) - 26% Progressive Democrats (Warren/Newsom) - 26% American United Moderates (Huntsman/Bloomberg) 13% 3rd Round: AUM are r

  48. I've had a lot of access issues on both phone and computer since the web upgrade. Usually only happens for maybe ten minutes or so, but multiple times per day. Not a big deal to me -- I'll just come back later. But for a new or potential PI customer, they might think the forum doesn't actually work.
