have any progs been elected as progs?

Probably only a few, since it only came intomexistence when, 2016? There hasn’t been any election, save maybe a state and municipal one here and there, since then.

So ideas for Ashe in the near future: He goes to NC for a weekend (or any east coast state really, just outside of DC) for a Friday night fundraising dinner for an organization and a Saturday morning charity 5K.

The latter will just be a news article covering his presence and participation in the 5K. I think the former could be a good chance for a roleplay for up to five other people to play 5 characters who donated the most money to attend the dinner and therefore get to sit at Ashe's table with him and his wife. Thinking just conservative members of the organization as these NPCs, of course, not politicians.

No problem, simply a lifelong love of reading and writing has turned into an amazing grasp on grammar rules and a love of proofreading and helping others improve their writing.

If you ever need me again (or if anybody needs me) I'll be happy to be of service.

So thinking more on this, I'll work on finding an organization and a location to make up the setting for the fundraising dinner.

I'd say the richest four donors (or richest two couples) - ones who donate the most to attend the fundraising dinner - can sit at a circular table with Ashe and his wife for the duration of the evening. Looking for this to potentially be a roleplay opportunity if anybody wants to roleplay one of the individuals or one of the couples.

Front porching was the charitable way of saying it, you could call just call it a collapse. The VP candidate practically separated herself from the campaign, he had sworn off corporate and PAC money and basically stalled with no cashflow while big Dem donors either went Prog or cut their losses. Gettysburg ended up turning into a gaffe fest that basically was the last effort before shutting it down for the final months

I finally read Dander's Gettysburg Speech and I have some questions/observations

1) How the hell is he blaming Detroit on Republicans?

2) "In Detroit in have the system turned into a jungle style free for all with the voucher system," Referring to a majority black city as 'jungle style'? Thats some racist shit

3) "First SCOTUS decision under me will see Citizens United gone, the Republicans have not committed to doing so, and I promise you guys it will be gone under my new Supreme Court justice." Does not understand how seperation of powers or the supreme court works

4) "Furthermore, we are going to order an immediate halt on all new federal prisons, and not renew the contracts." Where will the criminals go?

I actually know nothing about Pietro as a character, honestly, but it'll be interesting to see how I hold under pressure of roleplaying a political campaign.
