Here are the rules.
NO debating in this thread. Just name the person you believe should be president.
READ THE POSTS FIRST BEFORE YOU REPLY.
If you see the name of the candidate for whom you wish to vote already posted, STAR that post.
When you vote, post a reply saying, "I voted for POTUS on ATS." to bump the thread and show that you participated!
Edit to add : If you see the candidates name twice, ONLY VOTE ONCE. If you will not be voting, star the first member's post that STATES they will not
I will (and anyone who wants to help) add up the votes and will provide a margin of error for double votes. I know that some people will to be
dishonest which makes me sad. But so be it.
Because the thread is never-ending by nature of itself, there will be intermittent counts with results posted every now and again.
This is important because we will only be able to count stars for the votes of the candidates -- reading every post to count all the votes would take
a long time and might be difficult.
DO NOT vote with multiple accounts, please, I beg you in the name of God. Let this thing be honest and legitimate.
WE need to stand together. Above Top Secret is a community - and while we do not always get along or agree, we have a chance to do something.
Some of the brightest minds are here at this place.... and some of the craziest, too. So let's do something with that.
For once, everyone at Above Top Secret can agree upon something. We can get long-time lurkers to finally SIGN UP knowing they might make a
I am not going to type the name of the person for whom I am voting because I do not want to appear as if I am looking for stars. So the first person
to type the name of the person for whom I am voting, I will star that post as my vote and it will be counted.
At the end of this process, whichever name has the most votes here at ATS should be considered the ATS community's vote for candidate. So if you
participate in this process, then you agree to back-up whichever candidate gets the most votes here.
So here are the rules again:
Star the post with the name of the candidate for whom you are voting.
THEN post a reply saying, "I voted for POTUS on ATS." This reply helps to keep the thread bumped so that others are able to see it.
So... the first few posters have a responsibility to type the name of their candidate.
Whoever we end up backing up - this is the same for whom we should vote at the polls.
I have refused to vote thus far because of the state of things. But if you all will participate, you will convince me to go out and vote. So if you
want your candidate to get the vote, then you will get my vote for your candidate if your candidate wins this ATS vote!
This is my own personal doing - the creators and administrators did not have any part of this process. I am not using the ATS as my brand at all, but
simply referring to the community of Above Top Secret here. Let it be known that this thread is my own personal idea and not the idea of the
creators, moderators, administrators, or anyone else with authority here at ATS.
Please... participate, everybody. I want to see that everyone here truly wants change. When we find out who our candidate is, we can tell EVERYONE
to vote for that person. We can hound everyone and make sure that they hear us.
I will pray that everyone has an opportunity to vote and I will pray that everyone here is able to work together for this. As I said in the other
thread, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. My enemy is the current state of the government of the United States of America. Because EVERYONE here
agrees that the government is completely out of line, then you are MY FRIENDS! So let's be friends and work together.
Thank you very much everyone.
