  1. well, this is going to be a very long 4 years imo. I have basically disagreed with everything he's done since entering office (Not surprised, I happen to be on the opposite side of the ideological spectrum), and I am kinda afraid of leaving the country, despite holding dual US-Japan citizenship because of the Muslim country situation. While, I doubt he will enact such measures on Japanese-American dual citizens, it definetly doesn't make me sleep easily.
  2. What we need to do is change the voting system to make third parties viable at the state-wide/national level. as the system is currently set up, the US gov't only has the capacity to have 2 running parties, as people refuse to vote for their preferred candidate to avoid putting another candidate in power. What we should have is making people rank the potential candidates that go above a certain polling threshold(5%?), while still allowing for write-ins. This makes third parties viable, as now once the third party concedes, the vote transfers to your next pick, which allows, for example, people who want to support the Green party not having to risk electing Donald Trump.

    Trump

    Basically totally agreed. In a capitalist society, which the US is, companies (in general) will only think about their profit margin.
  4. Sanders refuses to run 3rd party because he doesn't want to be Ralph Nader 2.0. We need to the fix our current ballot system to make 3rd parties viable, because the current structure results in you having to vote for one candidate to avoid putting the other in the white house, basically a lesser of two evils duel.

    Trump

    Trump literally said he would be willing to use nukes in the Middle East or in Europe. Firing those nukes leads to ww3.

    Trump

    I prefer sanders/Green party I'll take clinton over trump only because I believe trump will start WWIII, whereas clinton will only start a regular war. Not a good set of options.
  7. Rolled an 18... Don't really know what I'm doing, but since you stated to set 1 to 18, I set another skill to 18.
  8. Total newb here, but I'm pretty good at figuring out rule sets, so do whatever you guys want to.
  9. Faster pace for sure, the game went too slow for it to be functional.
  10. are we calling end game? cause if yes,
  11. It's worth noting that you could also totally miss the mafia, and make their job really easy.

    Cold war

    If we successfully take shelter for 30-80 years, there should be no issues in terms of nuclear fallout. While yes soot can cause the nuclear winter, it can also be caused by just an uplifting of light particles into the atmosphere, so blasting soil into the sky can give you a nuclear winter, but generally should be fine thanks to refrigeration, so long as foods have been stockpiled, as the nuclear winter probably will not last longer than 5 years.

    Cold war

    @Woot The issues are if Nuclear winter occurs, we're basically F*cked, and it actually doesn't take a ludicrous amount of nukes to be fired, there are enough right now to give us a nuclear winter, no problem. Secondly, even a few weeks of global radiation could prove extremely fatal, and lower tolerance levels for babies and children would probably result in deformed peoples and high rates of cancer for at least the next few generations.

    Abortion

    In response to @Patrick MacFarlane, while I am more of a proponent of a national minimum system(in which the national gov't sets minimum bars, and the states and other judicial groups have the right to go above and beyond them), I can generally agree with your statement. The problem with your solution atm is the fact that in a State like Texas, getting an expansion of spending for anything that doesn't help companies(subsidies, etc) is virtually impossible. For example, in 2008 Texas cut funding to education, and has not even restored the funding to education despite it being 8 years later.

    Abortion

    I would also be pretty okay with a specific exceptions only situation if the gov't would actually help provide for child care(which it currently doesn't). What I find extremely annoying about Republicans that are anti-abortion is this: They claim they are pro-life, but refuse to support people who fall in the cracks that society inherently has, refuse to support the children that they are demanding people give birth to(thereby restricting the right to have sex to the upper classes). and support the death penalty, In reality they are pro-birth.

    Abortion

    I generally believe the child isn't alive until the brain begins to function, and am in favor of emergency case abortions even post-brain functionality if the birth threatens to kill the mother, or has a massive defect, as such a being would be a drain on the parent's financial resources. Pre-brain functionality, I'm full in favor of it, as a person without a brain(literally here) is not a person. By Brain Functionality, I mean when electrical signals start getting fired in the brain.
  18. We had double Turkeys, Apparently double Irans too, but Alex got himself host changed(I'm assuming) to avoid another repeat of Turkey.
  19. I was just copying an old list, if you feel like updating it go ahead.
