I believe youd also take Arkansas

He has to build a good campaign to do that, because I chose Arkansas as my in-game home state. :D

Reagan is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYY to dominate in this scenario considering he would have zero base support (even if he was Governor of Alabama, I feel he would get destroyed in all the debates) I agree with Dallas being more competitive. Just because Reagan is a racist doesn't mean he gets ALL the southern states, Georgia could turn blue in 2016 and SC could turn blue in 2024 again it's not 1940

 

I'm not a racist.

I actually do love that video. I am not, though, racist is defined as "a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another." I do not believe this and believe many black people would make much better presidents than many white people.

That is not the exhaustive, definitive, or expansive definition. Webster's definition is for easy reference of common people day-to-day. However, if you read sociology or psychology texts about the topic "racism," there's much, much more to it then Webster's simple appraisal.

Simply put an out-and-out racist is someone who would discriminate aginst another race, I would do no such thing, these days with all this PC liberalism (Which I know you don't condone), there are legit definitions that would include all white people, or literally everybody. Everybody has that little bit of Racial Bias in favor of your own race, you have it, I have and all the other forum users have it, it doesn't make you racist, it makes you human.

If I can request, could I get a 4 in both Ambition, and Ideologue? Those only affect how likely the candidate is to drop out after doing bad, and I feel that I would stay in until the convention, lol, it's my own worst enemy. Alternatively, you can check, "stays in until convention", but If I lost every state on a super tuesday, I would drop out.

Ok, just chiming in again before I grade more papers. 

Thanks Sanser for filling out the last candidate profile. I forgot who came up with the idea about having 2 good events and 2 bad events per candidate with them set at 50% liklihood for the scenario. That's an excellent idea. 

So if everyone could give me (pay attention to the phrasing--if you notice, they're pretty positive or damning events, but neither are guaranteed to float or sink me):

1) A positive event that you could see yourself doing on campaign. 

[my response: Prof. Emerson gives nationwide pro-labor lecture on Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness]

2) A positive event that you could see happening to you. 

[my response: Pope Francis publicly applauds Prof. Emerson's stance on helping the poor.]

3) A negative event that you could see yourself doing on campaign 

[my response: Prof. Emerson calls far-right social conservative Christians, "closet-Satanists"]

4) A negative event that you could see happening to you. 

[my response: Email leak suggests Prof. Emerson is uninterested in fiscal policy]

Overall, I will create events if you don't list any for yourself. I will probably create some in addition to what we list.

Rev/Gov. Taylor gives an inspiring homily on faith and social issues at a joint-Sunday Mass with leaders of the Mormon and evangelical Churches.

The SBC calls Taylor "Good enough to unify with the Catholic Church" (Obviously this has a strong effect in the South, especially in the Dark Red States. See below)

Rev/Gov Taylor says that he considers himself a student of Barry Goldwater.

Pope Francis criticizes Rev./Gov. Taylor saying "He is only concerned with his guns and his Bibles"

1) A positive event happening on the campaign:

My response: Rep. Bachmann addresses social conservatives, promises to fight for traditional marriage.

2) A positive event that could happen to me

My response: Sarah Palin publicly praises Rep. Bachmann's conservative platform: "One of the few good ones left"

3) A negative event on the campaign:

My response: Rep. Bachmann blasts Democratic agenda, "dominated by extremists and radicals"

4) A new event happening to me:

My response: Reports suggest Rep. Bachmann would consider a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage

(Something like this?)

1. as Na Cillini's address about economics is well received

2. Pro-immigration group expresses support for as Na Cillini's position

3. as Na Cillini slips and falls into dung on a farm

4. Longtime members of the Democratic party slam as Na Cillini as an opportunist

I'm definitely going to have to refine some of these to make them newsworthy or something likely to bring positive momentum or negative momentum.

For instance, @Reagan04 "Student of Barry Goldwater" isn't bad on its own, since there are some things about him that might be viewed positively today. You'd have to put Student of Barry Goldwater's views on race, or that you are "a student of Barry Goldwater; opposes the 1964 Civil Rights Act"  or more clearly, "_____ makes a perceived racist statement at a rally." 

I made my negative things pretty bad. I'm not even trying to make it sound neutral.

OK how about Taylor says that he would have voted against Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Also, @vcczar, we should be allowed to choose at least two endorsements to receive at the beginning of the campaign. (Senators, Governors, and Representatives only, and they have to be in your party. No NRA endorsements, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, etc.)

Sound good?

If we did get to choose two, I'd choose Rep. Trey Gowdy and Sen. Marco Rubio.

@ThePotatoWalrus

I'll probably allow people to have endorsers lean their direction, but not all-out endorse them. I'm sure multiple people want Rubio and Gowdy as well, so you'll have to fight for them. 

Also, can you pick a specific campaign promise for your event that you will pull back on. I want the unique news item to be a realistic news item and it sounds a little vague right now.
