Given the political fallout from President Bush's speech to the nation two days ago, it's now clear that more than ever before, the United States
doesn't simply need change, it needs a hero. Someone who can rise above the politics, unite the divided nation, take charge of a tattered foreign
policy, rebuild international relations, and restore confidence.
To kick-off the relaunch of AboveTopSecret.com's political discussion board as AbovePolitics.com
we're running the U.S. Presidential
elections one year early, and any member can toss their hat into the ring in an effort to become the hero that is sorely needed.
Beginning in February 2007,
any member of ATS can announce their candidacy for President of the United States, and let our members know about
your platform. To keep things simple, we've limited party selection to these six:
Candidacy declarations will close on March 15, 2007.
During the remainder of March and April
, this is your chance to refine your platform and "press the flesh" by engaging members on
AbovePolitics.com, AboveTopSecret.com, and BelowTopSecret.com. Each candidate will be offered equal advertising time with 728x90 pixel banners at the
top of AbovePolitics.com.
Throughout May and June
we'll conduct debates specific to the candidates within each party. Here is your chance to shine and show everyone
your plan for a brighter future.
In [b[July, we'll hold primary elections in each party to select the final party candidate for President of the United States.
And then, leading up to November of 2007, this is when everything will heat up with multiple debates, podcast interviews, and more. For our final six
candidates and their selected Vice President running mates, this will be a high pressure, high-stakes run for the most important office in the free
Finally, voting will take place during the first full Monday - Sunday week of November (11-4 through 11-11), and the AbovePolitics.com President of
the United States will be elected.
Our newly elected President and Vice President team will be awarded their own dedicated forum on AbovePolitics.com (and "Politics" menu item on the
ATS content archive) where they will become the site's official political commentators on the events leading up to the actual election in 2008 and
more. The team will be the only two able to start new threads in the forum (though anyone can reply), publish articles to the main site archive, and
share advertising revenue from their own Google adsense ads.
So polish your platform. Practice your baby-kissing. Develop a killer smile. Brush up on foreign policy.
We need a hero.
