To me, the most significant difference between Romney's 'we cannot reach these people' statement and Clinton's is that Clinton's was essentially true (she slightly underestimated the percentage of Trump supporters expressing bigoted views) while Romney's was completely false (most people paying no income tax vote Republican).
No it wasn't true. Not all people that voted for Trump fit in her basket, no matter how much some folks would like to believe it. Sure, some do, but not enough to risk hitting people she didn't intend to with that broad brush accidentally.It was a sad attempt to say "if you're not with me, well then you're x".
It pissed people off, and partly responsible for why we now have a President Trump.
It is not fascism to expect people to obey the law.
These boxes that she put folks in were too broad, and unfortunately, it's now popular thought to equate these things, when they are not equal positions.
Yeah, forgot about the rest of what Romney said about the not paying taxes bit, wasn't omitted on purpose. That would piss off folks on both sides.

The child is an agent of fate, but the prophecy is vague and no one knows for sure whether it will right wrongs or compound them. It's too open to interpretation. It could be about the war on the mother's home, or have to do with refugees from it immigrating to the material plane.
This goes way beyond whether you're a D or an R. Supporting and Advocating for Trump puts you on a completely different field.
There is a vast difference between actively supporting and advocating a candidate, and just showing up at the booth and simply choosing not to vote for their opponent. Don't read too much into things.
Anyway, seeing as how this is still a sensitive issue for some, I say we at least keep the moratorium on these threads in place a bit longer.

Insinuate? It's being assumed that's the case. Which is bananas.

I saw a lot of what he describes, so YMMV, I guess.
Had a game where we were in a fight with a black dragon, and the rogue managed to drop on it as it flew by, made strength, acrobatics and grapple checks round after round while stabbing it to death, as we shot at it and threw spells at it. She rode it to the ground as it died, and made another acrobatics check to survive the fall and reduce damage.

The TIE Defender is now canon (again). I can die happy.
It could have gotten there, though, easily, and had with that player in other games. I realize not all players of this type do not wish to contribute to a group effort, but in her case she truly does. Treating her ideas as a puzzle to be solved rather than just a problem to be handled ended up making the game memorable and enjoyable for all the right reasons :P
That was one of the things they'd say to tease her character :)
I GM'd a game in theme similar to we be goblins, except i asked everyone to roll a kobold character. One player, who is known for having a flair for the creative, insisted that her kobold believed it was a minotaur. As the game went on, the other characters (not the players) teased her kobold barbarian about being crazy, because of those beliefs. She played it to the T. She bought a helmet with cow horns on it, and would charge people as part of her raging. She had appropriate rage powers She took the crazy talk, with "one day you'll see!" and really played into the concept. So, I wrote up a PrC for her to take to actually turn into a minotaur while raging (not all at once, it scaled up to a large minotaur by 10th level). I presented it to her, and she accepted it.
