@ZFR: the failed governments counter is reset as soon as a government is voted into office.
I know. My question is, does the "extra" government that rtcvb selects now counts too?
(zeo answered that: yes).
I don't think ZFR is. If he is he's played a blinder.
I could very well be Hitler. Passing L's in first governments to get trusted is textbook Hitler play.
Joe I tend to think is unlikely.
Joe could very well be Hitler.
OK, @rtcvb pick a President. Me. I think everyone here agrees that I'm most trusted liberal, and if I'm Hitler I won't be dangerous as a President. So I think this is the best choice.
Make it official so we can get on with it.
Next, whom should I pick as Chancellor:
I trust SPF whom I personally tested, but as stated if he were Hitler he would pass L anyway. I have metagame reasons to believe he's Liberal, but I'm not taking the risk.
Ditto for trent. He passed a liberal policy, but could be Hitler too.
So, looking at people who are not likely to be Hitler, I'm thinking of choosing... Lift.
Yes, out of him and Joe I think him more likely to be scum. But there is no way he's Hitler. He wouldn't purposely create conflict if he were, thus excluding himself from any future government. He could be regular scum, but if he is, then one of those things will happen:
_ He passes an L so as not to reveal himself, and we get an L policy.
_ He passes an F, after being given an L, thus 100% exposing himself as scum to me. And I think this confirms Joe. No way would scum!Lift create conflict with scum!Joe, and absolutely absolutely no way would scum!Lift create conflict with hitler!Joe. Thus at the expense of Lift exposing himself, we get another confirmation. Plus it will give us other info.
_ I get FFF. Well, that's bad. But if I get FFF it doesn't matter who my chancellor is anyway. Incidentally, if I do get FFF I'm calling rtcvb a definite fascist.
So... thoughts on Lift as Chancellor?
If not Lift, my second choice is scene. Again I don't trust him to be liberal/fascist, but I'm pretty sure he's not Hitler. If he were, his scum buddies would have tried to get him confirmed. But I noticed nothing of the sort.
