This is a voter group that needs another look at some point. Cliff, I know you are working on Japan, ministers, and some other things as well right now, I’m not advocating this be an immediate priority, but something to look at at some point.
Patriots in this game are represented in a very negative light. Possibly the most telling thing about how this game sees patriots is the fact that low racial tension reduces patriot membership. Right there I know exactly what kind of people you’re referring to, and such people would self identify as patriots. That said, the kind of people who want to “keep THOSE kinds of people out of MY country!” and the people who are happy to see a well funded space program are not the same people. Some overlap might occur, but we’re talking about a Venn diagram here, not a single circle.
I’m not honestly sure where to even start here, but patriots need a re-build at some point.
