Thank you kindly.

Banning random words seems kind of sociopathic. Wink

That's exactly what a sociopath would say.

"People's Republic of America" sounds weird, and we did already have a Republican party that turned racist. Perhaps the People's Democrats? We've never had a Democratic party before.

Isn't "People's Republic of America" what you guys are shooting for anyway? I think the name would add some badassery to your guys' side of the aisle at least (in a sort of subtle way, IMO). People's Democrats could work, though I fear if you isolated it only to the term "Democrats", we'd end up in 2016 with the exact same left-wing party we have today (albeit, a few more points off-center, but you get the idea).

True, true. Is Zioneer down with People's Republicans or should we go with People's Party? Or should we head off in a totally different direction? The Farmer-Labor Party, perhaps?

I'm proud to have voted for you, even if I end up getting in trouble for it.

Let me ask you why you voted for an ardent libertarian, please? Personal reasons?

That's strictly confidential, comrade.

Oh, you can tell me. *stands creepily behind you smiling with his mouth and not his eyes*

The most important element in any true democracy.

Except, y'know, free and fair elections.

*the most important safeguard of democracy.

So historically the Rust Belt is more democratic? Is there evidence of this? BTW, if Mecha were to swoop in and save the day by vomiting history at us in a good way, that'd be great for all parties - not even to potentially contradict Snowstalker but just to be educated. Do we have to say "The Federalists were an elitist party" three times to summon him?

Wait, Vlad was banned for his political views? I don't buy it.

I'm told he posted actual Nazi propaganda, though it doesn't show up in his posting history and was presumably deleted.

What if they're not citizens? I don't think Venezuelans should be allowed to choose our leaders.

I support abolishing citizenship as a concept.

Does this mean abolishing all nations and living under one world government? Not saying that's a bad thing, just asking for clarification. Also not using subjects in sentences.

He's still in the chat if you guys ever miss him. Tongue

FF though! His posts aren't always easy to determine whether he's joking or not and we occasionally disagree, but he's an all around cool guy and would be cooler if he joined the avatar mania!

Oakvale wouldn't be Oakvale with an avatar. It'd be like putting clothes on.

What with the wine and everything? I've read that they pretended Jesus didn't like wine, but did they just go all 1984 and be like "Jesus is at war with wine. Jesus has always been at war with wine"?

BTW, I support running Bryan/Debs or Bryan/Roosevelt in 1896 and 1900 (assuming, of course, Smith and Harrison serve two terms). It'd be every progressive's wet dream.

Perhaps, but they won't be the only candidates...

Also, Populists/People's Party sounds good to me, if we can't decide on any other party name.

It shall be our fallback choice, though I do agree that we need something more interesting. The New Freedom Party? The Progressive Party? The Progressive People's Freedom Labor Party?  The New Nationalists (referencing both the National Party and TR's New Nationalism)?

I'll just assume that you're saving the nasty rape retorts for tomorrow, as tradition dictates.

Is this an inside joke I'm missing? Does AG have a rape fetish? I'm not sure I'd be comfortable raping someone as a fetish thing, even for pretend.

See: June 23, 2013

I don't see how Nik Wallenda walking the Grand Canyon is relevant here?

He doesn't seem to care no more at all, but he'd be sorely missed if ever he went leaving us so soon and unprepared.

So who are this forum's party bosses? I can imagine Zioneer and Alfred being party bosses for the Radicals, but who else?

I used to be the Whig boss, but now I'm just a non-Union boss.

I'm one of 5 or so people who actually vote for the Radicals pre-general election, so yeah, I'm probably the Radical boss.

As for the Radical VP for a Whig-Radical unity ticket, I'd prefer Smith, though I could go for Ingalls in a pinch.

You were a Radical before there were Radicals. You're unquestionably the boss.

And I don't think Smith and Weaver would get along well at all, so I think we should go with either Smith/Harrison or Weaver/Ingalls (though you obviously have final say over the latter), and it's looking like it'll be the former with Mecha's recent vote.

True, I'm a Manifester/Radical through and through. I'm the Bawsh.

Anyway, I'd prefer Smith/Harrison or Harrison/Smith, though I guess Harrison/Butler could work. If Harrison pledges to run and govern as a Radical (which will be helped by Ingalls being Speaker), then we might have a couple more choices...

EDIT: Oh, and in a formal merger of Whigs and Radicals, I'd prefer something with a bit more zing to it than the People's Party (though that is a good suggestion). Maybe a Laborer's Party.

Does the Progressive Labor Party sound good?

And I think that we should go with Smith/Harrison seeing as Smith won.

Hmm... Progressive Labor sounds a bit like a British party rather than an American party, so probably not. What about a party name referencing railroads and exploration, as that seems to be popular in both parties?

And Smith/Harrison it is, if dallas is letting me flex my power as a party boss.

The Explorationist Party sounds stupid. How about the Greater America Party, or GAP?

GAPists sound kind of dumb. Hmm... How about the Pioneer Party? Though I'd be up for just calling ourselves Populists if no better option comes up.

Meh, I'm not a fan of naming ourselves after current issues - the party will probably stick around for a while after the pioneers all die. I think the People's Party is the best route to take, although that's just my opinion.

Looks like the some of the other candidates are getting into a mud fight of dirty politicking. That's sad. Can we get this back to an issues focused election. And for the love of all that is good lets be civil and have fun. Otherwise this game will be no fun and eventually go the way of the pre-flood dinosaur.

You know it was an meteorite?

That's what the evolutionist would say. I as a creationist would say that the dinos went out with Flood.

Or any other kind of scientist.

BTW, did God literally stop the sun in the sky? Because that would have no effect on the length of the day.

Yes, God literally did. The account in The Book of Joshua has been scientifically proven to have happened. NASA proved that years ago. 

Oh, right, the National Anti-Science Association. I remember that study.

Can we quit with the "calling people of faith anti-science line" please. As a kid (after I had come to faith in Jesus) I had a serious interest in several scientific realms. Meteorology and Astronomy mainly. It's part of why I hold a somewhat left-libertarian position on environmental issues.


I'm not equating religion with opposition to science. I'm equating stating that the sun goes around the earth (which is what agreeing with the Biblical account is tantamount to) is unscientific.

Eventually, a party will collapse, and the cycle will go on naturally.

Like the Liberals.
