It'd be interesting to see how well you do.

Whoever gets elected Regent should appoint me as ATS Secretary of Defense.

We need to be organized against attacks by MIBs and other shadow government entities.
We need to be organized against attacks by aliens who know we expose them to the world.
We need to be organized against the coming Zombie-Apocolypse.
We need to be organized against 2012 solar flares destroying ATS databanks.
We need to be organized against paid shills and disinformation agents.
(the unpaid shills and plain ol' posters-of-nonsense can stay ... freedom of speech!! )
etc etc

I could organize and delegate to top level ATSers security needs to be addressed.
POWER POWER POWER .. gimme the power!

1. It is to be known that the Regent has no power over the moderators or site owners. However, the Regent is thus one whom has been appointed by the people of this community to act in their stead through his/her sheer devote will and vision to help improve over-all credibility, substance, and logic, across the boards where further needed.


Seems legit, but I see what you did there. An obvious attempt to confuse people. What is this "logic" you speak of?




2. The said appointed Regent, chosen by the people, will also appoint a council of like minded individuals whom covet similar skills required to reflect and compliment the rising expectancies and measures of character and reason where further needed.


No, any good Regent knows that only a Dictatorship can be effective. And efficiently guide their subjects by the rule of unfair and unjust laws. Any council will only serve to get in the way of progress. Et tu Brute?




3. Said Regent is thus chosen to actively become an elected voice of reason to help inspire the next generation of role models that are needed before all echo's of logic and humility are lost to the confusions of contempt and derogative trends that are growing more evident.


Send this man to the lions for crimes of treason against the State.



4. It will be a duty of the Regent to help expose and shed light on the psychology, tactics, and agenda's of shills, trolls, and grievers by seeking to increase and spread the awareness of such aims that can range from short term temporary gratifications (or what is known as "for the lulz") to the more intricate goals some tend to hope to achieve. This duty will also be met with helping the community to catch and report such violations to the moderators in order to help maintain the future of the communities credibility for not only being known as a conspiracy forum, but as one of our last channels of information and knowledge to what public media would rather hide from eyes and ears.


You mad bro ?

Kind of like Monica Lewinsky ?




We need to be organized against attacks by MIBs and other shadow government entities.


There can be only one entity. The shadow knows.



We need to be organized against attacks by aliens who know we expose them to the world.


Don't worry about exposing aliens. If you're going to be secretary you just have to expose yourself.




We need to be organized against the coming Zombie-Apocolypse.


Yes I agree. Any zombies should immediately be added to the Regent's cabinet. Except there might be a shortage of brains at the staff meetings.



We need to be organized against 2012 solar flares destroying ATS databanks.


The policy will stay as it stands now. Leave it to the professionals.



We need to be organized against paid shills and disinformation agents.


Yes, as secretary I will want you to make sure to keep the payroll in proper order. We don't want our shilld switching sides on us now do we?



(the unpaid shills and plain ol' posters-of-nonsense can stay ... freedom of speech!! ) etc etc


I don't like that idea. What if someone disagrees with me? Can I still feed them to the lions?




I could organize and delegate to top level ATSers security needs to be addressed. POWER POWER POWER .. gimme the power!


You have too many ideas to be my secretary. Maybe you should run yourself.

There has already been a split in one of the parties. Although I agree with FractalChaos' planks as they apply to the realm of macroeconomics and social issues, I do not feel that the goals of the Libertarian-Farmer-Labor-Conservative Party can be realized in the context of ATS. I am therefore hiving off and presenting a more pragmatic platform. Our party is founded on a few basic philosophical tenants:



  1. The Scientific Method is the best means of understanding the nature of the physical universe.
  2. Meditation and self reflection is the best means of understanding the subjective experience of the world.
  3. All decisions and actions must be based on a careful balancing of reason and compassion.
  4. Mathematics trumps gut feelings.
  5. Disembodied "channeled" spirits, if they exist at all, do not necessarily tell the truth.
  6. Just because there are pics doesn't mean it happened.
  7. Repeating a lie does not make it true.
  8. Appealing to an authority may be a logical fallacy, but deferring to an authority is reasonable in the absence of better, more reliable, information.
  9. YouTube videos prove nothing.
  10. Citing a hoax may be simple ignorance; knowingly citing a hoax is trolling.
  11. Rational people can evaluate the same information and legitimately reach different conclusions.
  12. When rational people come to differing conclusions, these conclusions can be moderated by civil, rational debate.


Ladies, gentlemen and extra-terrestrials, the Radical Centrist Party hereby submits itself for your consideration.

We already know all we need to know. Quit wasting money with silly redundant experiments. Why? Because I said so.



Meditation and self reflection is the best means of understanding the subjective experience of the world.


OK, but when doing self reflection which mirror should we use. The bathroom always has the best lighting. But, the full length one in the hall never lies. Also, when doing meditation. Should it be an OBE, Kundalini, Lucid dreaming, Mantra or other?



All decisions and actions must be based on a careful balancing of reason and compassion.


Another obvious dictator




Mathematics trumps gut feelings.


When was the last time you tried to hug or kiss your math book? How did that work for out you?



Disembodied "channeled" spirits, if they exist at all, do not necessarily tell the truth.

Same applies to you



Just because there are pics doesn't mean it happened.


Actually yes it does



Repeating a lie does not make it true.


A lie, a lie, a lie ... wait how many times am I supposed to repeat it?



Appealing to an authority may be a logical fallacy, but deferring to an authority is reasonable in the absence of better, more reliable, information.






YouTube videos prove nothing.


Blasphemer




Citing a hoax may be simple ignorance; knowingly citing a hoax is trolling.


Who gets to decide what is and isn't a hoax? You?



Rational people can evaluate the same information and legitimately reach different conclusions.


Finally something we agree upon.




When rational people come to differing conclusions, these conclusions can be moderated by civil, rational debate

Are you trying to bore us to death or what?

That said, I wish to reiterate, I will not nominate myself.I figure, if the people want me, they will nominate me as an independent, themselves and I will run,happily, should I be chosen as the independent nominee.


You have a passive aggressive personality.



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?


Another obvious dictator trying to dictate what's right and wrong.




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.


As I said before, this goes against everything my party stands for. Who are you to dictate how this election process will play out?

This wasn't even your idea and you're already trying to take it over. Oh wait, no that's me.

The Scientific Method is a means of inquiry, it does not require money, only clarity of mind. Even Alistair Crowley recommended it.




Meditation and self reflection is the best means of understanding the subjective experience of the world.



OK, but when doing self reflection which mirror should we use. The bathroom always has the best lighting. But, the full length one in the hall never lies. Also, when doing meditation. Should it be an OBE, Kundalini, Lucid dreaming, Mantra or other?


I recommend Soto Zen. It results in the most clarity.




All decisions and actions must be based on a careful balancing of reason and compassion.

Ignoring the non-sequiter, how do you believe decisions should be made?




Mathematics trumps gut feelings.



When was the last time you tried to hug or kiss your math book? How did that work for out you?


You've jumped domains of knowledge. The emotional realm is one thing, objective knowledge another. See planks 1, 2 and 3.




Disembodied "channeled" spirits, if they exist at all, do not necessarily tell the truth.


Same applies to you


I will cede this point. You have no way of knowing whether I am telling the truth or not... without applying critical thinking. Critical thinking is at the heart of our platform.




Just because there are pics doesn't mean it happened.



Actually yes it does







Repeating a lie does not make it true.



A lie, a lie, a lie ... wait how many times am I supposed to repeat it?


As many times as you'd like. It still won't make it true.




Appealing to an authority may be a logical fallacy, but deferring to an authority is reasonable in the absence of better, more reliable, information.






That is a different use of the word "authority."





YouTube videos prove nothing.



Blasphemer







Citing a hoax may be simple ignorance; knowingly citing a hoax is trolling.



Who gets to decide what is and isn't a hoax? You?


Everyone has the power to evaluate the truthfulness of a claim, provided they have the proper tools: reason and insight.




Rational people can evaluate the same information and legitimately reach different conclusions.



Finally something we agree upon.


I beg to differ.

It worked for Al Gore. Oh, wait....

I'd like to propose the "Grain of Salt Party".
The charter of this party is to process every thread as if it were a grain of salt. Each thread will be treated with the same indifference as one grain to another. All the while recognizing that such grains as a whole or conglomeration provide the delectible spice that is life. Each grain offering it's unique added flavor.

To fund our party I will list our top donors.

1. The "Green Party" which will provide the herbs for our political conconctions.

2. The "Democratic Party" which will provide the necessary inactivity for which the indifference can occur.

3. The "Republican Party" for which greedy aliances can be made with all the top corporations to establish a base stock for conspiracy to florish. Oh, and a lack brains to forsee the consiquences of such actions.

4. The "Independent Party" which will provide the lack of numbers to make any real difference in the outcome of the actions of the other doners.

All hale Conspiacy!!!!

Do these movies prove that Godzilla destroyed Tokyo?
