National states isn't real life and in a primary or possible general between me and Tarsonis I would win if they were the incumbent mayor or Governor That quote of "You'll have to deal with power outages and food shortages while the union works out their issues with management. I will be sending pizza to them in solitary and so should you " would be an ad blasted all over the state.

There would be ads showing the suffering and I would defeat him in landslide.

It is fantasy but its also the reality of the world. You would not win a primary or general after actions and comments like that no matter who in touch with the people you think you are.

I dunno, I won most people in the thread, I'm sure I can win others. Specially when I reframe the discussion as helping average everyday kickassachussetsians defend themselves against the Deep State Corporate cabal and the Democratic party. I can think of about 15 states I'd win on that platform alone.

I know of two, actually. The one you refer to and the one for Norfolk Island, Australia. I used to do a monthly flag quiz on F7, remember.

I don't, I've only ever ended up in F7 by accident. I stick to the national RP stuff and NSG.
