  1. My guess is the communist candidate Gloria La Riva. (As a rule, I only include candidates who have ballot access in enough states to hypothetically win the presidency)
  2. The election is almost upon us, and as in the past, I have posted a poll of fellow Spiderwebbers.
  3. Granted, but somehow Tulsi Gabbard is elected president. I wish my milkshake would stop bringing all the boys to the yard.
  4. Economic Left/Right: -3.75 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -9.49

    Here is some more approbation. Perhaps we should address you as Postmaster General Kelandon?
  19. ...Restless Souls is a scenario I started making when I was 14. It's written with a bizarre prose that avoids second-person pronouns (and has some grammatical errors, as I'm now noticing), and the plot doesn't make sense to me as an adult. Several years ago I cobbled it together into something barely passable, mostly so it wasn't another item in the Pit of Unfinished Scenarios... Edit: The Dust of Choking is a default item in corescendata2.txt . I went ahead and tested the item, and it in fact causes acid like I'd expect it to. I'm not sure why the tooltip says otherwise.
  20. I didn't even finish Avadon 2, and I didn't notice at first that the third installment even came out...

  22. You are a: Left-Leaning Anti-Government Multilateralist Bleeding-Heart Libertine Collectivism score: 17% Authoritarianism score: -17% Internationalism score: 50% Tribalism score: -100% Liberalism score: 83% I'd imagine that this score would be a bit different if the statements were worded differently. For example, I responded "no" to "The government always has the right to impose taxes on people" because a government should not have a "right" to impose taxes on people who are not adequately represented, but I would otherwise favor higher taxes in general.
  23. I highly, highly doubt a recount in Wisconsin is going to change anything, so here are our scores (with incorrect contests in parentheses): 1. Actaeon: 48 (MI, PA, WI) 2. Sylae: 47.55 (IA, ME2, NE2, PA, WI) 3. Kelandon: 45.75 (FL, ME2, MI, OH, PA, WI) 4. BainIhrno: 45 (FL, MI, NC, OH, PA, WI) 5. Neb: 44.75 (IA, NV, ME2, MI, PA, VA, WI) [only one to predict Trump winning] 5. Tyran: 44.75 (FL, IA, NC, NV, ME2, MI, PA) 6. Callie: 37.55 (AK, AZ, FL, GA, IA, ME2, MI, MO, MT, NC, NE2, OH, PA, SD, WI) 7. Dintiradan: 0 (everything)
  24. People have been far too focused on prejudicial comments during Trump's campaign without considering why people actually voted for him. A lot of his voters do think he's unqualified and of poor temperament. The US once had a robust manufacturing economy and has since transitioned to a service economy, but that transition has left millions of people behind. Trump won in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and probably Michigan. Trump won the election because people are angry that the decades have gone by without much improvement for a large fraction of the populace. Both Democrats and Republicans have contributed to this. Both (Bill) Clinton and Obama have contributed to this. So-called welfare reform did not alleviate poverty. Trade deals have mostly benefited the corporate world. The Affordable Care Act has raised premiums without providing the public with universal health coverage. If you dismiss people's concerns as nothing more than bigotry, then you are indirectly supporting the likes of Donald Trump. I hope that members of the Democratic party and the left in general will see how neoliberalism, or the Third Way, has failed.
