  1. I just wanted to tell you that I think your answer very interesting even when we are from different political backgrounds you are still much fair in your views About the LGBT equality it is true to say that most of the western countries (at some exception) are still far-ahead and way better than most of others countries of the world who are for the majority in the "depenalization without recognition" statut quo (and 1/3 of the remaining countries are still in the criminal reply) But even in the best part of the world regarding LGBT equalities there are still 3 to 6 more times self-murder into the community than outside. About the rest of the things you disagree with we have some differences even but I think sad to believe that nowadays liberals are assigned or compared to people who hate history or memories about the past. I truly love the history of my country, I love castles from the Renaissance, I love visiting historic sites and I even appreciate to pass time with associations in charge of reconstituting historical events. I would have not dreamed at all to live in those periods, but I find the stories and the reconstitutions of these purely amazing, and I want to protect both our historical properties and patrimony while it does not change my conviction that our current society is much better than the previous one.
  2. The problem with populisms is that they reject the fact-checking. The number one argument against fact-checking is to say that "people don't believe to facts, they watch reality".
  3. Like many I voted for Having relations with someone without their consent should result in resignation. Sexual harassment or purposeful inappropriate touching without the person's consent should result in resignation. Evidence of multiple instances of harassment or purposeful inappropriate touching without a person's consent should result in resignation. But I am not sure for Having relations with someone that is underage by state or federal law should result in resignation. Depends of the age by state, if every state say 15 years old it's okay, if it's 18 I would tend to say no. About sexual misconducts we all have a value of gravity, my own like many is that having affairs while being unmarried is okay, having affairs while being married is not morally okay but a private issue. Sexual harassment is the breaking line and of course touching children who can't consent needs to lead to a resignation.
  4. Actually made a mistake, I would have voted Charlie Baker before Rand Paul My vote is no surprise, as socially liberal my top 3 would be Baker then Paul then Kasich I think that if Charlie Baker was the Republican nominee I could vote GOP, but he is a super RINO for what his party has become
  5. A friend of mine sent me this the 3rd of november, telling "my game says it will finish like it" I was like "hehehehe, NO" Sounds like apart for NC the game did a pretty good job !
  6. According to my projection Biden is expected to finish with a lead of 200 000 votes in Pennsylvania For Georgia it will be SUPER close cause I do not know how many military votes will come in, Biden should win but by same number of votes than Bush in Florida in 2000 However look at the final EVs, it's 2016 reversed
  7. Yes of course ! But if you want more details Yesterday morning Trump was 690 000 votes ahead of Biden and there were 1 400 000 remaining votes to count in Pennsylvania. As of now, 900 000 votes of these 1 400 000 have been counted, mainly from Philadelphia and Trump's margin has come from 700 000 to 100 000 That means that Biden got roughly 750 000 votes by mail and Trump 150 000. If the trends remains the same, well, Biden will enjoy a margin of more than 100 000 votes over Trump in Pennsylvania.
  8. It remains 50 000 votes to count in Georgia and 500 000 in Penn, Joe has good chances to win both but more Penn than Georgia
  9. In 2 hours we will know if Biden wins Arizona but it is likely (as of now) As I said, I am open minded I told several days ago that this was the only path to victory for Trump : And I am right excepted if Nevada switches (which is unlikely too as of now) Trump needs to get Arizona.
  10. If Trump loses Arizona, it's done Getting Nevada will be hard @TheLiberalKitten YOU RUINED EVERYTHING WITH YOUR LITTLE VOTE
  11. Your concept is very interesting ! I will play it for sure
  12. (1988 was the first roleplay of this forum Have fun doing it back !)
  13. I personnaly believe that Trump has higher chances to take Pennsylvania rather than Wisconsin. But yes your maps are pretty good, and actually your pessimist scenario is my own projection, but for me Biden is between 280 and 375 Evs (335 is the good compromise).
  14. You were 2 years old when he wrote the first post of this topic John Kerry was the democratic nominee Barack Obama was a state senator from Illinois Ronald Reagan had just died Independence was at its peak in Quebec Lady Gaga was not a thing yet Britney Spears was cool The Greeks just won the european football championship Ipods were cool and modern Window vista was the modernity Internet was out of prices and just began to be democratized. Myspace was THE social network. What to add?
  15. I find your new argorithm much better If Trump wins his map has to be this one :
  16. The best for Trump is 279 in my opinion. While the best for Biden is above 400. We are in a 2008 scenario. Yep in 2008 Barack Obama was also fearing to lose due to a tie, but he got a landslide.
  17. Happy that we are linked in opinion (essentially on PA)
  18. Thank you for all the job you have done on this election ! For the model, I am almost certain that Trump won't flip Nevada. I think I am open minded and I believe that the "best" scenario for Trump would be to only lose Michigan and Wisconsin while keeping one of the two congressional districts, which would put him at 279 for him and 259 for Biden. This is for me his best map to get, a map in which he retains Arizona, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Iowa.
  19. We're not in 2012 In 2012 hurricane Sandy played a big role in keeping swing states to Barack Obama, and even back when him and Romney were neck and neck in national polls, I believe that Obama would have won without this event (maybe with less than 332 but not sure)
  20. New California Republic Congress : (event 1) in California (do not know which zone exactly) Speech of Press Kimball, declaring Mission accomplished My fellow Californians We hadn't asked for anything at the start of this year. We stood there peacefully, shaking hands, asking citizens about the future of our Wasterlands. When a bullet whistled close to my ear, a boomer bullet. That January day, blood mingled with the cries, and covered the ground of North-Vegas. That January day, hope gave way to fear. I stood before you asking for the right of Congress to declare war on terrorism, and you granted it to me. How many betrayals have we suffered? How many men and children have died in the name of security and freedom? Too much. Today I can proudly announce that we have won the war. We won the war on terror, and we won the war for all the people of our Wasterlands. The Republic has shown who cares about security, who is willing to bleed to protect civilians. We have demonstrated our credibility when it comes to law and order. I ask for a minute of silence for all the victims. The minute of silence peacefully takes the room The president close it. I hand over the powers of war to Congress, and I recall the words of our original founders "Give me liberty, or give me death". Then all senators and congressmen including military officers and Supreme Court judges of the Republic get up from their chairs, standing-ovationning their president while another old kind of hymn replaces the traditionnal NCR one. Event 2 : NCR tries to diffuse the news about the Congress' speech and the resolution of the war against boomers and who actually did most of the job to Utah territory as it's part of the lands. (kind of rally) Event 3 : NCR tries to get the endorsement from the Disciples of the Apocalypse, offering them religious tolerance as the NCR always did but under a secular state. (endorsement) About the request of the Legions of Cesar : The NCR recalls that the Constitution of the Republic and the state of rights grants rights for boomers to have a fair trial. However the NCR recalls that death penalty is an option which is in the law of the Republic and in the law of the Wasterlands, but a jury and a judge have to pronounce the sentence. The NCR also questions if Cesar truly wants to kill the boomers as he just medalled the securitron which helped the boomers the most in the war against the NCR, not the war against boomers. However the Republic offers to Cesar that prisonniers from both sides from last battle can be exchanged as the Republic retains some of his men. @ThePotatoWalrus The Trial of Raquel Following rules are announced by the NCR : 10 jurors will decide on the sentence to be applied alongside the judge who will be the chief justice of the Supreme Court of the NCR. However the Republic, wishing to make concessions announces the following proposal: Of the 10 jurors, 3 will be elected by the NCR's citizens, 4 will be elected among the population, and 3 will be from the faction of Mr. Goldwater including Goldwater himself as he was among the ranks of the victims. The majority to decide on sentence is 7 jurors. The prosecutor requests the death penalty against all boomers. Jurors have then to decide between the death penalty, life sentence. However it is up to any juror to do another suggestion. @Cenzonico (I would like to give a place to Roleplay and let the dices decide the final 4 jurors for the fun of th unexpected @PringlesN7 )
  21. After the beheading of Samuel Paty France reaffirmed the right of liberty to caricature, including the prophet of islam which led to controversies with boycotts of french produces in some countries such as Pakistan / Koweit Also the reinforcement of the "law against separatism" presented by the french government irritated Erdogan who told that Macron should "take mental health cares" Iran also made some publications like this one : The European Union and India mostly supported France against Erdogan, but the rethoric continued to inflate on caricatures and religion. This morning a guy stabbed and killed 3 old people in the basilic of Nice, he seemed to be a radicalized islamist (today is the celebration of the born of Mohammed) The french embassy in Saudi Arabia would have been attacked too. These last attacks should push the government to go even further in his law reform against radicalized people. The muslim council of France was fearing that this kind of attack may happen that's why they requested to not organize religious celebrations today.
  22. To be sincere everyone was hiped by Obama even in my country back in 2008 (and I was only 4 years and half older than you dudes !) But many kids in France believed that John McCain was a french-fries CEO Because of this :
