  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.

  3. 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.

  4. So as everyone knows 2020 has been an insanely chaotic year, through the pandemic I lost my uncle in April and needed time away from everything, I'm in a much better place now and am happy to be back.

  6. 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

  7. 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

  11. Chelsea Handler actually has a point. 50 Cent literally said "I don't care that Donald Trump doesn't care about black people." He endorsed him because under Biden, 50 cent will have to pay a bit more in taxes. This is a perfect example of how class solidarity is more important than race solidarity in America. Bottom line is that 50 cent is wealthy, mega wealthy, most black people, most white people, are not. 50 cent doesn't care about what it's like to be a young black man living in the grips of systemic racism every day. He cares about growing his millions. His endorsement should be an alarm

  12. Theodore Roosevelt -- no flaws at all in debate. Whirlwind and intellectual. Magisterial. FDR -- Like my description of Clinton below, but even more convincing of a speaker and less likely to be provoked. Ideal. B Clinton -- a killer on the debate stage -- mixed humor, humanity, facts, and cutting remarks. Almost ideal. Wilson -- magnetic debater on policy, history, and on human passion, but too professiorial to rise higher on this ranking. Nixon -- Contrary to JFK beating him, he was quite solid. No logical or verbal flaws, but not charismatic. Reagan -- the

  16. Alright. You speak of harassment happening to you from Patine, but it’s you that’s consistently tagging me in comments. In regards to bans, I have flagged your comments only twice, never once suggesting how long the ban should be. Why would I want to have a logical discussion with someone that stretches the truth, routinely plays victim, flagrantly accuses people of bias, and has made the forum much more chaotic since joining? I’m going to save us both time and further forum drama by blocking you finally. You’re certainly wasting my time and add no value to my forum experience. Not worth

  18. 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.

  19. And these are powers you’re comfortable leaving unchecked, to grow and grow and grow? You don’t like American intervention, fine. But the opposite of American intervention is not no intervention. It’s Russian and Chinese intervention. .

  21. 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

  23. Possible explanation, but not really. Omaha is literally on the Iowa border, and Council Bluffs is a swing city in Iowa. If it tilts blue, it likely means game over there as well. However, I'm not sure spending time even in Iowa is really a good option at this point either.

  24. This is an update to the preliminary prediction map. I took out something that was attempting to factor the undecided vote margin of 2016 to 2020. I found that it was impossible to really estimate who that favors. There also hasn't been many Generic Party polls lately, so I took out the Generic Party trend. Doing this tilted the tilt states, but at some point it might be added back in, but who knows where the trend will be. For now, Biden still leads, but if this map is in anyway accurate, it's worrisome that it has been moving towards Trump. Most forecasts still have Biden at 320ish to 340ish

  25. According to this site, the total votes so far (early and mail-in) is 49.5% Democratic, 27.5% Republican. But keep in mind: This only includes 18 states (those that give party information on votes), not all states. Also, Republicans are (according to polls) much more likely to vote on Election Day. So don't read too much into it. https://electproject.github.io/Early-Vote-2020G/index.html However, this does help Democrats, because more votes now increases the likelihood of shorter lines on Election Day in Democratic leaning precincts. It also means there's less ground game wor

  32. Also, Biden never called black people superpredators, that was HIllary. It seems Trump thinks he's running against a combo of Hillary or Bernie. I'm sure he'd prefer having to run against either of them.

  33. Since I saw the quote, I saw what @PoliticalPundit I said. There is no user on this forum more biased than this person. Almost everything he says is in bad faith or antagonistic. This is why I blocked him. I wish I had quotes from him blocked. It would make life much more enjoyable on this forum, since I don’t like people that are a waste of my time. @admin_270 is there any way to block quotes from @PoliticalPundit when other people quote him. I want to go on this forum as if this person doesn’t exist. I don’t like anything about him. Personally or ideologically. I’d say intellectually, but th

  41. Just to chime in with something I'm sure that is in the back of everyone's mind: This is very similar to what the forum looked like a few weeks out from the 2016 election. As we get closer to the vote, tensions get higher and people get crazier than the normally are. It'll go back to normal soon, I imagine

  42. My prediction for this outcome since Giuliani is literally one of the most corrupt, untrustworthy people in gov. right now: It is turned over to police, they say it is under investigation until after election day (because I suppose it will take that long, perfect timing!) they conclude there was no evidence of this. Just my prediction. Obviously could be 100% wrong; in that case, it's disgusting and despicable. Also Hunter isn't Joe. Also I agree with @Actinguy If Giuliani knew this, why didn't he turn it over sooner? Is he using these children that have been affected to his

If you want a pure country simulator down to micromanaging budgets, diplomacy, and military, this might not be your game. But if you want a story-driver, politics RPG where you play as a leader of a country, talk to your cabinet members, decide basic policies, nominate supreme court picks, and manage the seats your party gets in the elections, I think this may be your game. You play as the newly elected leader of the fictional country of Sord
