    Amazing how institutionalized our society is. Take teaching for example. In the old days, you just had someone who wanted to teach kids (usually an unmarried woman, often in their teens). There would be some parents in the area who wanted a teacher who would teach their kids useful skills (= usually reading, writing, basic math). Voila, you have a school.

    Nowadays, it's public schooling and public schooling is a giant, expensive, bureaucratic, monopolistic tragedy. Really folks, you can get what you want in a much simpler, cheaper, more flexible way.

    Here we see, the wild insane man in his natural habitat. Spouting the weirdest nonsense from the darkest insides of his mind. He fantasizes about the young teenage unmarried woman, not understanding that cultural norms moved past that many many years ago.

    I guarantee when Trump wins on Tuesday/Wednesday night people will use ^ as an excuse to leave rather than accepting Trump won and having to deal with the repercussions of that. 

    Will you except it if Trump loses on Tuesday/Wednesday night?

  3. Event 1: Strom Thurmond will make an announcement at a rally in New Vegas. "This shall by my final campaign stop in New Vegas. I know what you're thinking, and no, I am not dropping out of the race, because Thurmond never stops fighting. However, I am, as of this point choosing to redirect all my resources and attention towards Arizona and Utah. It is clear to me, that the biggest threat to the people of the Mojave is Caesar. After he made a point to attack my miniscule campaign yesterday, and with the rumors that he is trying to sway my good friend Barry Goldwater towards him, it has been made clear to me that my efforts shall be put forward to stop Caesar from advancing to the second round. As of this moment, should I not make the second round of the election, and Caesar does, I pledge to endorse the candidate who is running against Caesar." (Rally)

    Event 2: Strom Thurmond will barnstorm through Arizona, pushing back on Caesar's claims that Segregation would be a disaster, and informing the people just how well it worked in pre-war America. (Barnstorm).

    Event 3: Strom Thurmond will hold a rally in Zion, pushing his platform of Law and Order via democracy, rather than the dangerous Dictatorship of Caesar. (Rally)

    Trump will win this, and frankly it will be close but decisive. By 1am we will all know Trump won. 

    If Trump wins, we won't know until at least midday Wednesday, as Florida is the only key state that we'll know for sure on election night most likely.

  5. Strom Thurmond announces his intentions to attend any public trial of Raquel, as he plans to see justice served to the woman who tried to assassinate him.

    Event 1: Strom Thurmond will stage a rally in Freeside, promising to clean up the streets and restore order to attempt and win over undecided voters in the area.

    Event 2: Strom Thurmond will barnstorm through Caesar's Legion, promising Freedom, without the threat of losing the security given by Caesar.

    Event 3: Thurmond will return to Dayglow, the day after Goldwater. He will spend helping the residents with their daily goings, and give a long speech at the end of the day, pledging peace and prosperity.

  6. 1st Event: Strom Thurmond will once again meet with the Enclave Remnants, trying to smoothtalk them. (Endorsement).

    2nd Event: Strom Thurmond will hold several events in Utah, telling the residents that these Super Mutant attacks are the perfect examples of why segregation is needed for a functioning society. (Rally).

    3rd Event: Strom Thurmond will hold a rally in New Vegas. (Rally).

  7. Paradox Games are the GOAT games. I just can't play most cause my computer is trash. So for the most part I stick to Vicky II, which I can actually run. Have not played any Half-Life or Deus-Ex, and have no plans to. Played Fallout 4 but know lore about the other games and plan to play FO3 and NV at some point. Never played an Elder Scrolls Game, but I would like to, eventually.

  8. 1st Event: Strom Thurmond will once again Barnstorm up and down California to spread the message of Law and Order (Barnstorm).

    2nd Event: Strom Thurmond will attempt to meet with the remnants of the Enclave, to convince them that as a leader from the old world, he provides the best opportunity for the potential success of the Enclave (Endorsement).

    3nd Event: Strom Thurmond returns to New Vegas to give a razzling speech, about why the NCR and Caesar's Legion are both utter garbage. (Rally)

    Ay, don't go @ my boy Woody! :P I'm curious as to what makes you think he was a horrible man?

    He was incredibly racist (even for his times!). He re-segregated the government and was very pro-segregation and Jim Crow in general. He screened "The Birth of a Nation" at the White House, and helped revive the KKK with his actions. He also definitely helped anti-german sentiment during World War One. He also campaigned on "Wilson kept us out of the war" and immediately went back on that promise. Wilson was also a very totalitarian man, using the War as an excuse to limit free speech, and imprison political opponents. This one is less important, but he was very idealistic, having a severe "House on the Shining Hill" ideology, making us look like fools during the Treaty of Versailles. He was unable to prevent the treaty from being the disaster it was, and his 14 points were a failure. The League of Nations, while a good idea, was executed horribly, in large part because of Wilson.

  11. Strom Thurmond's events for if the Boomers' assassination attempt is unsuccessful:

    Event 1: Strom Thurmond will hold a rally in Phoenix after the attempt on his life. He will pledge law and order, stating that "No politician will ever lose their life in a Thurmond Mojave" (Rally)

    Event 2: Strom Thurmond will move onto Flagstaff for yet another rally. (Rally).

    Event 3: Strom Thurmond will move back to the NCR, for another attempt at swaying members of the Republic, in Dayglow. (Rally).

     

  12. Strom Thurmond will respond to the events that have transpired in North Vegas and at Nellis Airforce Base between the NCR and the Boomers with a speech in New Vegas. 

    "It is clear to me, that neither President Kimball, nor the Raquel of the Boomer coalition, have any intention of maintaining law and order within this society. I will condemn both the actions of The NCR, the Boomers, and Mister House. What we see here, is those who would like to wield power for nothing but their own personal gain and satisfaction. They care not about you, the people of The Mojave, but rather about themselves! They would throw away all of your lives if it could gain them a sliver of wealth on their plates. All hostile actions must be responded to with the utmost force. I will make a brand new, totally original method of diplomacy. I call it, "Big Stick Diplomacy". You must have the power, or else you can never maintain law and order within society. The New California Republic has no interest in this, and as a result of that, Mister House and Raquel have taken advantage of his weakness, and broken society. Is this what you, the fine people of the wasteland want? No, of course not! You must fight back against this tyranny and this weakness. I will bring the utmost law and order to this land, the people above all else!"
