Title says it all.

For the sake of making the first posts more interesting, I'm going to say the last three posters were:

1. George Voinovich
2. Barack Obama
3. Ron Paul

I would vote for George Voinovich because he is close to the embodiement of what I would be in the US Senate: socially conservative, center-right on economics, and was his own man no matter what the party told him.

Okay, between Ron Paul, TJ in Cleve, and Cincinnatus, I take TJ in Cleve.

Cincinnatus. He's been a good Speaker in the Northeast Assembly so far even though we don't always agree.

Nathan, I guess. He seems the more serious of the choices.

RealisticIdealist. I would enjoy his technocratic/meritocratic approach.

RealisticIdealist. Someone like him would make a pretty good President, and we're by far the closest on the issues.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

Cathcon
Really? I'm rather suprised by that vote.


I'd probably vote for Cathcon because he's closest to me ideologically (I think?), though I'd consider Tmth for electability purposes and probably agree with him more on economic issues. I don't think I'd vote for Napolean because we pretty much will disagree on every issue I would ever consider basing my vote on.

I would probably support Cathcon though I think I would be matched up better socially with Napoleon. I'm not entirely sure where TJ falls on the spectrum, however.

NiK...if for no other reason than the PM score and the fact that he's never given me reason not to....or by process of elimination, whichever makes more sense.

Snowtalker since he's very friendly to me and earns my vote. I like Nik as well and would have voted him over dead0man and TJ.

No offense to anyone, and even though he's a few degrees to the left of me on the political compass, Nathan. He seems to be the most qualified. I am impressed with the quality of his posts, and reasoning  ability.

How so? He can't stand me or Marokai, so Cathcon is the only option.

I clearly knew about the fight between Napolean and you (How could I miss it?) but I didn't know Napolean and Marokai didn't get along. It just surprised me that Napolean would vote for someone much, much more conservative than Marokai, who seems to be a fairly likeable and respecful liberal.

Maybe I just haven't been in Atlasia long enough to understand that unlike real life, you don't vote based on who you actually agree with. Still, this isn't Atlasia.


Tmth, obviously.
