  1. Another productive response! :S
  2. Sorry, but I'm middle-aged and not up-and-up with all the lingo. What's an "alt-uni."
  3. Did you include the Libertarian Party, American Independent Party, Independent, and Write-in candidates?
  4. Today is the 735th Anniversary of the opening of the de Montfort (or Model) Parliament in the Palace of Westminster in Medieval England, the birth of the entire Western electoral representative form of government as we know it now in it's most embryonic state (let's face it, the Greek poli, the Roman Republic, the Northern Italian mercantile Republic, and the Commonwealth of Iceland were not truly governed anything resembling modern Constitutional governments, and were only really retrospectively referenced for inspiration, legitimacy, rhetoric, philosophy, and terminology - which is highly no
  5. Just wait until Clay (or one of his opponents) gets a rock concert in support of his campaign!
  6. I just feel you often seem more "confident," in your answers to a lot of other posters' suggestions, is all.
  7. Yep, makes a response to @populist86's humble request, but not to mine (or at least never with any sense of commitment) that would greatly and immensely improve the game and make it a lot more comprehensive and expansive, and TRULY a great election simulator for all occasions and most elections (and with 'likes," behind them). I'd ALMOST think you just prefer to respond with any degree of commitment to the "easy," requests - but I hope I'd be wrong.
  8. Electoral systems other than FPTP and the Australian System for legislative (PMI and CI) elections, comprehensive coalition forming mechanics in legislative elections, parties endorsing candidates of other parties in PI, Convention nominations of candidates for PI elections instead of Primary vote, delayed campaign travel for candidates and surrogates and delayed voting results in pre-flight-era elections, a manageable but present "corruptibility," factor in the editor, a NOTA vote in jurisdictions where it appears, elections of small, collective head-of-state committees instead of single head
  9. There's a lot of features that @admin_270 really should be adding after several years that he's been dragging his heels on...

    As far as I've known, Aboriginal Affairs is a strictly and reserved power for the Federal Government alone, as the successor to "the Crown," who signed all those treaties, and explicitly stated as such a jurisdiction in the Constitution Act (formerly British North America) act 1867, and not altered in the Canada Act 1982. This has not stopped Provincial Governments from trying to deal with First Nations directly from a perceived status of legal authority, but the First Nations always tend to "remind," the Provincial Government of the exclusive Federal jurisdiction, especially if they don't lik
  11. Also, I'd strongly advise just using K4E to make any post-WW2 Italian Parliamentary election scenario (well, technically, post-WW1, but I believe there were only three Interwar ones before Il Duce seized total power) for the sake of any sort of accurate or sensible results, as it seems @admin_270 continues to sit on, and be committal toward, the idea of non-FPTP/Australian legislative electoral system options for the Infinity Games, despite the great majority of elections in the world NOT using FPTP or the Australian system. I can help you with the definitely different scenario making process
  12. BTW, did the Five Star Movement (the one with Mussolini's granddaughter in it) actually disband, or just get hit hard and sent reeling in the polls? I wasn't sure how that ended.
  13. I swear, I will put you and that other guy on ignore if you invoke Trump in a Star Wars reference again!
  14. Comparing Trump's inner circle to a reforming Jedi Order, and by default the Democrats to a Galactic Empire? Now that's just plain lame and cringeworthy - and ludicrously hyperbolic. I look forward to the day when I won't have to see Trump's face or hear or read his name - either being praised by his braindead lackeys, or yet another, "joke's on Trump," stupid article by his opponents, and he's only be seen the rare time Carter, Clinton, and the Bushes usually were. I am just bone sick of his overexposure, especially because he's just a narcissistic, sensationalist chump who doesn't even remot
  15. I would, if the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election as a whole interested me enough. There's a TONNE of other election scenario all over the world and through history that take priority on my personal interest and to-do list than one of six worst elections in terms of absolutely awful candidates for both major parties, and truly cheating any sort of possibility integrity and real, positive choice at all, from the results, along with 1852, 1920, 1968, 2004, and 2016.
