Ah, got it. But that's not 100% true either.
After the next Government there will be 2 cards in the deck. the top card is still pulled if we get 3 failed elections.
The deck would be reshuffled on the 2nd successful government.

Crazy thought here - but if everyone was telling the truth, there are still 3 liberal cards in the deck. 2 have passed. Could we just fail every single election and have them flip over the cards, thus getting all 5 liberal policies passed?

The "if everyone was telling the truth" is why we likely shouldn't.... but if we could guarantee it, that would be a very interesting way to win the game.

We need a circle of trust at some point and right now my circle includes only me.
Is it still a circle jerk with only one jerk?

New theory. NA is Hitler. DW is fascist. NA passed two Ls to DW and DW then lied to fill NA in that he is fascist. NA might have even got dealt 3 Ls. Makes it more likely that MA and I both got FFF.

Just a working theory though. MA is still very suspicious. But we now have two 4-3 votes with the exact same groupings. WW, NA, and DW vote together
