I played it for maybe 10 seconds and already like it. I'll check it out this weekend.

If winning the election is as easy as that game, then I should already be President. And I'm British.

They make other games too, all of which can be found on the website. They are obviously pro-establishment, but the games are still very educational; especially the one where you get to play as a constitutional lawyer.

The constitutional lawyer game was cr@p. It essentially rejected arguments and accepted arguments depending on the programmer's thoughts at the time. The "popularity" argument was OK for one bill, and not OK for another (Brown case). And the Miranda v Arizona case was just a clusterfck of me objecting to things because I have an objection to run in mind, and then my guy's response being "That evidence is TERRIBLE" when I can conduct a turn...

Wow, I'm scared to think what the game would be like if I had selected ementary school.

Hmmm, should we limit taxes, or give pandas to corporations?

The Miranda one had some of THE WORST supports for Arizona.

I didn't know that apparently a support for not reading suspects their rights is that it might take too long to do things properly.

Fvck this sh!t. I picked Republican and all California, Texas, and Florida were in democratic control with a large portion of popular vote. Biased much?
