Hey guys,

There have been rumors that the Tea Party may mount a challenge to Speaker Boehner come time for the 113th Congress. Any thoughts?

The Establishment will want to keep Speaker Boehner. The Speaker is alot more moderate than the Tea Party. If the Tea Party had their way, the U.S. is kinda screwed. The agruement will be that the Speaker saved the country from a shutdown and a default.

The Republicans will probably suffer too much in the house to give the tea party much justification for such a move. The Reps might hold onto a slim majority, but a lot of fresh tea party faces elected in 2010 will probably lose their seats, and the tea parties representation will be diminished.

Moreover, having congressional republicans officially associated with the tea party would pretty much kill their electability come 2014. If the Dems don't take back the house in 2012, they will for sure in 2014 (if Obama loses).

What does "A discussion on the ability of john boehner to remain speaker" have to do with this game or scenario creation in general? According to the forum rules, political discussion is not allowed.

Considering that political discussion is not allowed, maybe it's about time that the Admin put a stop to all this. I thought the scenario creation forums were for discussing scenario creation, not for debating policy and issues unrelated to the game. This statement is taken directly from forum rules, "This forum is not for political posts. It's for posts about 270soft (including TheorySpark and 80soft) games and scenarios."

Hi everyone,

This forum is not for political posts. It's for posts about 270soft (including TheorySpark and 80soft) games and scenarios.

Guidelines

Stay On Topic

Stay on topic on the threads, simple as that.

No Offensive Content

There is to be no posting any offensive content of any kind. This includes tubgirl, goatse, pain5.jpg, scary loud things popping out pages, bad language, etc. If you post something like this corrective action will be taken.

This is not intended to exclude legitimate political debate where appropriate. 270soft reserves the right to define what 'legitimate' political debate means in this context.

Advertising Political Sites

If you want to advertise a forum or political site of yours, e-mail us first ( http://270soft.com/contact/ ) and tell us what it is. If we say it's okay, then you can go ahead and post it. We will probably close the thread afterwards.

Finally:

No Personal Ad Hominem Attacks

This requires some common sense.

Not good: "Bob, you're stupid."

Better, but also not good: "Bob, that idea is stupid."

Good: "Bob, I disagree with that idea, and here's why."

Not good: "Bob, you're evil."

Better, but also not good: "Bob, the views you hold are evil."

Good: "Bob, I believe some of the views you hold, if implemented, would make our society worse off. Here's why."

Thanks,

The 270soft Team

Debate on issues, policy, and legitimate political debate is totally allowed.

George, did you even read the rules? Or even compare them to our posts? Neither Alfonzo, Elliot, or I ever called the other person stupid, arrogant, an idiot, or any other abusive titles. Nor did we say each other's policies were stupid. We stated our disagreements and our agreements, no matter how much variation they may be. That is what makes America so great, our variety of ideas and views and our willingness to share and learn.
