Winfield is an Atlasian hero

Thank you.  You are too kind.

Thank you Speaker Harry S Truman and President bore for your comments.

I am sure Atlasians appreciate the work of Truman and Lumine in organizing and presenting this debate.

It would appear my incessant nattering has achieved the result of having a Presidential debate in which all three Presidential candidates will be participating.

This is good news for the candidates, for Atlasians, and for democracy.

 
78  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The June '15 Official Presidential Debate: Commentary Thread on: June 09, 2015, 09:49:46 pm
This is an outrage.

How in the name of equality, justice, fairness, and democracy can a valid candidate for President be excluded from a Presidential debate?

This is unbelievable.

Atlasia likes to pride itself in how free and democratic it is.  This is the very antithesis of democracy.

The editors of the Mideast Record-Courier and the Lumine Political Tracker have shown their extreme bias in not allowing BaconBacon96 into the Presidential debate.

If Bore and DKrol had any sense of decency, fairness or democracy, they would refuse to participate in the debate unless BaconBacon was allowed to participate, and to participate in the debate thread.

Both Bore and DKrol want to lead Atlasia.  Is this how they intend to lead Atlasia, by practicing the politics of exclusion?   

At least DKrol has stated that he has no problem with BaconBacon participating in the Presidential debate.  That is fine as far as it goes, but both he and Bore should go further and demand that BaconBacon be allowed to participate in the debate.

Harry S Truman has refused to address the concerns I have expressed in this matter, and Lumine Von Reuental has not offered his input either.

So I am challenging Harry S Truman and Lumine Von Reuental to engage me in this matter, and explain to me, and explain to the people of Atlasia, why they have excluded BaconBacon from the Presidential debate.

Give us a valid reason why you have excluded BaconBacon from the debate.

This is a new low in Atlasian politics, and a black mark on democracy.

Unfortunately, my friend, that is not correct.

The current text is: "Presidential elections shall be held in the months of February, June and October. Elections shall begin between 0000 Eastern Standard Time on the Thursday preceding the penultimate Friday of the election month and 0001 Eastern Standard Time on the penultimate Friday itself, and shall conclude exactly 72 hours after beginning."

As such, I see it starting on Friday the 20th.

I must have been looking at an old version.

But that being the case, with the time frame you have presented, there is absolutely no reason whatever that BaconBacon96 should not be in the Presidential debate.

Whose idea was it to exclude him?  

This is a gross miscarriage of justice.

This is completely unacceptable.

Why did this ever happen in the first place?

There are questions that have to be answered.

Anybody who is a valid candidate should automatically be included in a debate.

We should not have to even be discussing this.

Any debate that excludes any valid candidates cannot under any circumstances be considered to be a legitimate debate.

If a valid candidate chooses not to participate in a debate that is a different matter altogether.

But all valid candidates absolutely must be allowed to participate in a debate.

I checked the constitution and the candidate election declaration thread.

From the Constitution Article II, Section 2

Section 2: Election to the Presidency

1.Presidential elections shall be held in the months of February, June and October. Elections shall begin between 0000 Eastern Standard Time on the second Thursday of the election month and 0001 Eastern Standard Time on the first Friday thereafter, and shall conclude exactly 72 hours after beginning.

So it looks like this election begins Friday June 5, 2015.

Since BaconBacon96 and Bacon King only declared their candidacies on June 6, they would not be official candidates.

They can still, of course, declare themselves as write-in candidates by declaring that they will accept write-in votes.

At least, that is the way I see this situation.


81  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The June '15 Official Presidential Debate: Commentary Thread on: June 09, 2015, 02:19:52 pm
Mr. Harry S Truman, you are of course correct.  A Vice Presidential candidate obviously does not participate in a Presidential debate.  My mistake.   

But please clarify.

Is Presidential candidate BaconBacon96 included in this Presidential debate?

And if not, why not?

Question for Hatman, RogueBeaver, MaxQue, and any others who may wish to contribute.

Is it within the realm of possibility that Canada is headed toward a United Kingdom type political landscape, that is, with a conservative or center right party, the Conservative Party, and a socialist party, or moderate leftist party, the New Democratic Party, as the two dominant parties, with the Liberal Party basically going the way of the U.K. Liberal Party?

Do you see the above scenario happening any time soon, or at some time in the future?

Your comments please.

Thank you.     
83  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The June '15 Official Presidential Debate: Commentary Thread on: June 09, 2015, 01:03:34 pm
Mr. Harry S Truman

Please explain the reason why Mr. Bacon King is not included in the Presidential debate.

Did he not declare his candidacy in the Candidacy Declaration thread in time or what? 
84  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How many Presidential candidates do you fear? on: June 09, 2015, 11:29:43 am
There are some real nut jobs out there for sure.

Santorum and his like for example.
85  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: BaconBacon96/Bacon King for President/Vice President- It is Actually Happening on: June 09, 2015, 11:03:52 am
Question for the Bacon ticket:

If elected, would you promise to introduce bacon flavored breakfast cereal to Atlasia?

Think of all the time Atlasians would save in the morning.

They would be cutting their time for preparing and eating breakfast in half.  

All they would have to do would be to pour a bowl of bacon flavored corn flakes, or bacon flavored shreddies , instead of pouring a bowl of cereal as well as frying bacon on the stove.

This would as well clearly cut down drastically on Atlasians being late for work, thus increasing the  productivity of Atlasian businesses, thus clearly increasing the competitiveness of Atlasia on the world economy.

The Winfield legacy goes on.

How's Romney's presidency doing?

No need to get snippy now. 

Just calm down and take a deep breath.

I do believe Harper will get back in.

This article on this poll says as well

The Tories are within a majority

Great news for Harper and the Conservatives
89  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: June 2015 Presidential Debate - Question Proposals on: June 08, 2015, 12:41:26 pm
As a candidate, I demand entry into any debate that is held!

Absolutely.  I should think that is automatic for all Presidential candidates.

Reagan, one of the best.

And leaders with his charisma come along only once in a generation.
92  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Jimmy Carter is one of the most underrated presidents of all time on: June 07, 2015, 04:40:08 pm
Not one of the most underrated.

One of the worst.
93  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Abraham Lincoln vs. Franklin Delano Roosevelt on: June 07, 2015, 04:35:01 pm
Lincoln.

Liberated the slaves.

Preserved the Union.

But FDR definitely ranks #2,or #3 at the very least.

Good job.

Interesting facts.

My oh my.

Who tied your boxers in a knot?
96  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Sign the Petition: Immediately Execute President Bore's Attacker on: June 06, 2015, 02:01:45 pm
This is ridiculous.

Everyone is entitled to due process.

Emotionally charged mob rule never works for the better, rather only works to the detriment of society.

Ah I also thought he'd be at least leaning R. I know his dad also said that Ike was the best President, tbh I think most people that age love Eisenhower and then vote Kennedy

I have also heard Rick Harrison say on the show that William Henry Harrison (Whig), and Benjamin Harrison (Republican) are ancestors of his.

Democrats don't care what Hillary has done. 

They worship her. 

They idolize her. 

They would still blindly vote for her.

They are trance like in their loyalty to the Cult of Hillary.

If Hillary said to them, Here, drink this laced Kool-Aid, they would do it without hesitation.

Their last words would be Hillary then, Hillary now, Hillary forever.
99  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Would you like to see the major parties have a brokered convention? on: June 05, 2015, 08:19:57 pm
One of the most famous brokered conventions in U.S. history, if not the most famous, was the Republican convention in 1920 which ended up nominating U.S. Senator from Ohio Warren G Harding for President.

A fascinating convention. 

Comes complete with party bosses, smoke filled room, wheeling and dealing.
