Caleb Perry gave a speech in favor of the Christian Left and minority religions. He praised liberation theology and the social gospel, and "helping our fellow man." He urged toleration & acceptance of all religions whether they be Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.

Jesse Green heads to South Carolina. South Carolina is fairly Conservative, so it may be a good place for him.

Kim Davis is sentenced to prison.

Trump's speech on taxes is badly received because he was seen as a hypocrite.

Professor Emerson gives  nationwide pro-labor lecture on Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. He talks about the rights of workers, supporting union workers, and raising the minimum wage to $15. The speech helps his campaign.

Several Progressive Leaders insist that Faberge is the Only Progressive Suitable for the Presidency. They think that his views on government are the best. For example, his denouncing the CIA as the largest terrorist group has them applauding.

Petersen tries to talk about various issues, but his speech shows his lack of knowledge concerning the issues.

Ackermann answers questions by Meet the Press.

President Obama invites Caleb Perry to Discuss the Opposition to Expanded Healthcare

Sabolesky and Kucinich Team Up to Discuss Progressive Values

Sanders gives a stirring speech about how the government should work for the people.

Rubio's ad attacking Donald Trump's integrity backfired, as people see him as a career politician.

A poll comes out showing that most Americans have a negative view of Ted Cruz. Pundits attribute it to his attacking other candidates all the time. According to some of them, "People don't want a divisive person, they want a unifier."

Another of Patine's posts about labor in social media gets likes.

Ventura mocks Petersen's understanding of the Constitution.

Some protesters make fun of Sabolesky's knowledge of the issues.

Clinton's views on Taxation are being well accepted in Massachusetts.

Americans don't like Hilary, though.

A Republican debate was held where Taylor tried to attack Trump's record, but Trump brushed it off quite easily.  Then, Jesse Green attacked Taylor, questioning his loyalty to the party, asking if he wants the Democrats to win. The conservatives ate it all up, and Green was seen as the biggest winner of the night. Taylor's performance was the worst.

Volkswagen Rigged Emissions Tests, Stock Drops!" 

Jimmy Carter endorses Patine. "As a Christian, I believe supporting the separation of Church and State is the way Jesus would have it. We must not let bigotry win. We must fight for the rights of our fellow man--rights for people of color, rights for people of other religions, women's rights, and LGBT rights. This is why I support my fellow Christian, Mr. Faberge.

Cruz says that he is the candidate that can be tough on terror.

Emerson gives a speech attacking the Christian Right and "bigots."  Left-wingers, secular humanists, anti-theists, and the People for the American Way cheer his speech. Right-wingers, Evangelicals, Conservative family groups, and the Christianity Today criticize his speech.

Some conspiracy theorists protest during an event hosted by Kasich's wife. The reason is that Kasich is loved by the NWO.

Crystal Ball Ratings

Among Republican candidates, Trump is seen as the strongest. Ironically, the establishment thinks he's the best candidate. His grassroots campaigning has done some help too.  Jakob Taylor is seen as too right, and comes in last place.

Among Democratic candidates, Hilary is the frontrunner, but Patine comes in a strong second place due to his endorsements by Kerry and Carter.

Among Republicans, not much has changed.

Among Democrats however, Patine has risen from 3% to 14% in just a month. Will the surge continue? Sabolesky and Emerson have also risen.

Ah, then it's probably out of date. For instance, @Dobs' platform is likely more radical, for instance, especially in certain social areas (though about the same in others).

I think he was more radical when I made this scenario in c. 2014 or whenever it was. The "parties" are those that are more left-leaning vs. those that are more right-leaning. I had you all take a poll to create your characters. So you were placed based on your answers.

I think it’d be a lot of fun to do this again, i’m sure all of our views have shifted a little bit especially after Trump

Someone else would have to make it. I probably won't make anymore 270Soft PI scenarios considering I'm making a game that I think does all that and more.

I believe, at the time that was made, only @vcczar and I, of those included, were of voting age. Also, my political views have changed due to a lot more than Trump. Contrary to popular belief, Trump, at the end of the day, is not the cause or architect of, "the Trump era," and all of it's woes - he, and the very fact he was even electable, are symptoms of greater, more deliterious socio-political problems and issues that were already present when he threw his hat into the ring. Problems and issues, in many cases, the political will and appetite is still, seemingly, lacking to tackle seriously, or even to recognize.

Yeah, it seemed like everyone was 13 to 16 years old then.

I had everyone find photos that weren't themselves but who might look like them if they had an actor playing them in a political drama or something like that. I don't actually have a beard, but I thought if I ran for office, I might grow one once I'm elected. At least that's what I thought then. The main reason for this was that everyone was too young to hold office so real pictures wouldn't seem credible. I think @Patine and I were in our mid-30s and everyone else was between 13 and 16 years old. Now we're in our early 40s and they're in their late teens early 20s. Once everyone is 25, we can use our real photos maybe.
