  1. Event 1: Strom Thurmond will pay a group of Raiders to attack some of President Kimball's supporters outside of Jacobstown. (Sabotage) Event 2: Strom Thurmond will return to New Vegas. Here, he decides to give another speech, to try and offset the previous one. He will focus on a whole new idea: segregation. (Rally). Event 3: Strom Thurmond will reluctantly barnstorm through Caesar's Legion, to speak with them about segregation, and see if they're more receptive to the idea than the citizens of the NCR. (Barnstorm).
  2. 1st event: Strom Thurmond gives the first speech of his campaign in New Vegas. "I had just recently resurfaced after 300 years below ground, and I could not believe my eyes. I could not have imagined that the world would be just this bad. Now of course, I lived on the East Coast prior to the Great War, but from my various trips out West in my times, it was a pleasant place. Now, I see nothing but disgrace. Two foolish factions living amongst each other, against each other. The New California Republic, and The Caesar's Legion. When I see the New California Republic, I see so-called "progress", which could only result in the degradation of society itself, vicious ghouls and mutants living amongst the fine people of California. Is that what we want? No, of course not! Now, I'm not saying ghouls and mutants should be treated as sub-humans, it's not their fault that they're evil mutant creatures. There ought to be a separation, or "segregation" of society, separate but equal, as to prevent society's downfall. Now, as for the Legion, all I see is Communism. You may have heard of it, you may not have heard of it, but all you need to know is that a Communist Society is nothing but infinite horrors and terrors for the people, a dictatorship of the few. I would compare Caesar to Joseph Stalin himself. There are no rights in The Legion, there are no states, there is no free speech. Is that a life that you want? A life in fear of being enslaved, tortured, murdered because you speak out against Stali- Caesar? Of course not. That's why I, Strom Thurmond of the Old World am here to save you, save the citizens of the Mojave. We will create a beautiful federalized Democracy, where you're free to live without fear. No fear of the oppressive government, no fear of the ghouls and mutants, and no fear of crime, as Law and Order will reign supreme in a Thurmond Mojave." (Rally) 2nd event: Strom Thurmond meets with Henry Jamison to request the endorsement of the Crimson Caravan. (Endorsement) 3rd event: Strom Thurmond will barnstorm through the New California Republic, attempting to convince the citizens that segregation is the way of the future. (Barnstorm)
  3. I'd really like to see the DNC adopt Ranked Choice Voting into their platform. Not only is it something that increases the validity of voting 3rd party, but it might also increase support for the Democrats, as someone who might usually vote Libertarian or Green could consider voting for the Dems in the meanwhile to make their chosen 3rd party more valid.
  4. Unbeknownst to Barry Goldwater, someone had been hiding under the floor of his vault for the last years. He has finally left for the surface, and has spent his time carefully watching Goldwater. He's ready to make his own bid to be the leader of The Mojave. Strom Thurmond is here, and he's ready to segregate The Mojave! (I really need to catch up on my New Vegas lore)
  5. So a Biden supporter living in a rural, Trump-loving town in the south where people fly confederate flags and can be openly racist wouldn't be shy about it because Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson supports him?
  6. It would be hilarious if the polls were off in favor of Biden. All the "Muh 2016 polls" people would get to eat even more shit than they would if Biden wins by the margin the polls show.

    Really good. Not as good as the first Borat, but that's understandable given how hard it is to pull off the same character more than once. The ending scene was brilliant.
  8. They're fixing the random number generator, by election day it'll be Trump +5!
  9. I would've been a strong progressive democrat at the time, a strong advocate of the Affordable Health Care for America Act. I would've been disappointed to see the Senate unable to pass a public option, but would've voted yea on the Affordable Care Act because incremental change is better than no change. Probably would've gotten expelled from Congress for getting in a fight with Joe Lieberman on the floor of the senate.
  10. I'd be a New York moderate Democratic-Republican. I would never have supported a war except for the most dire of circumstances, needed to protect American Sovereignty.
  11. Completed the demo. Very interesting concept for a game and I'm very impressed by the demo. I hope the full game is just as good when it comes out, and can be updated over the years to a top quality game.
  12. In the same vein that watching the world end would be fun, sure.
  13. I'd have been a strong proponent of the bill. I'm not sure whether I'd be a Republican or Democrat during the time, but I lean that I would probably be a Republican during the 60s, due to opposition to Southern Democrats and being a New Yorker who would for the most part be a supporter of Rockefeller. I imagine my personal party switch would occur in the 70s.
  14. I would've liked to see a Labour-Green-ACT Coalition. Green to push Labour left economically and ACT to push them to be more Socially Libertarian.
  15. Alright Ben, now do something about it. This is nothing but a ploy to get the moderate vote in the 2024 Republican Primary.
  16. There's always chatter about "Shy Trump Supporters" in the cities and such, places that tend to lean leftwards. However, why is there never chatter about Shy Biden Supporters, in rural areas, or red suburbs? Surely you'd be under scrutiny for supporting a Democrat just as much as someone supporting a Republican in the city.
  17. Except Clinton's lead in battleground polls was a lot less stable than Biden's. On election day 2016, Clinton was only ahead 1.1% in top battleground polls. Biden is currently ahead 4.9% and has never been ahead by less than 2%. If the numbers hold up (which I suspect they will, changing at most by 1%), Biden would be +3.8% compared to 2016 in battleground polls.
  18. Chief Justice Gorsuch. Pleasantly surprising as a judge so far, he seems to be more of a Roberts than an Alito/Thomas, which is the best I can really ask for with a Trump nominated Judge. Confirm Justice Amy Coney Barrett It's all hypothetical at this point, but in terms of conservative judges I presume she'll rule to the right of Kavanaugh, and fit in as more of an Alito/Thomas type. but she doesn't really have any marks against her personally. Block Brett Kavanaugh Not fit to be a Supreme Court Justice.
  19. On Question 2, a reason for the polls being wrong (other than a normal polling error) would be voter suppression, especially via mail-in-ballots being rejected in droves.
  20. Especially given that Joe Miller isn't really even a Libertarian like Ricky, rather a Tea Party Republican who got the Libertarian Candidate to step down.
  21. 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.
  22. Yay! It's always fun to watch the results of elections that have no immediate impact of my life, because I don't have to stress about the results!
  23. Making it harder for people to vote is bad, mmmkay?
  24. Yes! If I could choose one Senate Candidate to win this year, he would one of my top options. For one, we need a viable third party, and on another point, he has a really good platform on most issues, much better than your average Libertarian Candidate. He's also going up against Tom Cotton.
  25. CNN doesn't necessarily have a bad polling operation, just sub-par compared to most other major news networks. CBS, Fox News, NY times, ABC are all more reputable in their polls.
