We would be using the popular vote right? I've long since thought it was time to get rid of the electoral college for the popular vote.

Not too mention, it would be much easier for what we are doing here.


The actual voting would be conducted along the lines of previous ATS polls. Everyone would have the oppourtunity to vote for the person/party of their choice.

And yes, no electoral college here.


I'm a self-appointed independent observer....this should be fun....



Des willing to break stalemates, if the price is right....


You're not connected with the Justice department, are you?

Why don't we have those who wish to run spell out their promises and such either here or in their own threads? Then those who wish to follow that person's vote can either flasg or send their support in a reply. Others can also debate their policies in the same thread and who has the most support in the end basically wins.

Just a thought...

That's actually a good idea. I'm hoping that just setting this up will allow it to evolve into it's own theme.

Nice idea!

Count me in,

Libertarian-Farmer-Labor-Conservative party


Not sure as to the structure, but I'm sure I could wrestle up some nominations and support.

What do I do next?
edit on 16-6-2012 by FractalChaos13242017 because: clarification


Get nominated, explain your platform, get ready to defend it, and run for Regent!

Consider yourself nominated if no-one else runs on your party platform.

Damn Orange Confederacy think they can strong arm breakfast drinks! Why not have a soothing banana drink mix? Make me regent of the Banana Republic and i can guarantee that we will ally our great nation with the Apple Republic and we will take breakfast back!


As long as you can gain support from the Bacon Lobby, you may have a chance.

Part of my platform is...

Removal of the recognition of civil unions or marriage by government.

Legalization of all substances, and elimination of suppression. The protection of freewill.

Promote resource based, logistic dependent trade agreements. Freeing markets from manipulations stemming from allegiances and government intervention. Allowing for the mathematics and reality of consumption to dictate markets.

Immigration reform, removal of boarders and citizenship. (boarders remain, sovereignty protected, but people having the ability to travel freely)

If all nations are to partake in the global economy, all structured economies must share self similarity with the over all structure of the global economy. Which then goes to remove government involvement with their respective systems.

debates? when does this ball start rolling?

This is a temporary position right, more of a position during transition?


All jokes aside, this is a great start! Wonderful platform!

The debates can be initiated by the nominees themselves when they have solidified their individual platform.

The position is only for a year. Ribbon cutting ceremonies, guest appearences, that sort of thing.

No real deadline. I'll give it a week or so, based on member participation. Once we get a list of names, I'll list nominees and their party affiliation.

That's a good idea. I'll ask them.


As for your nomination? Consider it done!

I will not be running for regent of the anti-regency party.

For if I did and were elected, I would as my first order of business, abolish the office of regency.

Also....well...that's about it.

I have breaking news which might affect the outcome of the elections.

Apparently one of the nominees (who shall remain unnamed for the time being) was arrested recently for unspeakable crimes and computer hacking fraud.

This is serious news folks. Make sure you know who you're voting for.

The names of the offending parties will be released soon.

ATS hacker arrested

Oh come on, lets not make up fake stuff like that to attack future potential opponents with. We are trying to do better than the politicians in real life....Lets keep it clean and not smear each other, even jokingly....

Lets show the world how it SHOULD be done. Debate each other on the issues and let the people vote for the best person. Simple, clean campaigns!

Leave out the mud slinging, real or not.

I think that is how it should be.... Anyone else?

Just keeping it real man. Keeping it real. The names of the offending parties will be withheld until such a time that the story can be fully confirmed.

In another breaking news announcement IpsissimusMagus has thrown himself into the running for new ATS regent. The party platform he is running on is known as "The Smear Campaign" party.

Vote for me, because those other guys suck.

Nah, that is not real. It's a joke, with all due respect. Frankly, I would like to keep this thing respectable and honest. Show people what an election should look like.

Politics aren't supposed to be nothing but mud slinging and name calling( Joking or not)....That kind of thing should not even exist in politics. Personally, I feel ATS is better than that. Let's "keep it real" by showing the world how things are supposed to be done.

Amusing.


But lets try to focus on the issues.

I am positive that we will have ample time for general silliness.
