September would be fine, and let people do a flashback post or two of them announcing their candidates.

Will we also be doing as usual and ask for endorsements, or will you completely decide endorsements on your own?

You can ask for endorsements, but I'm working on a more fair way of doing endorsements rather than people just sending me their dream list of everyone they'd like.

The flashback would work just fine Cheesy

I am going to switch to Chuck Hagel as an Independent

Sounds good, but remember there is no primary for independents, so the game isn't going to be too exciting for you at first :p

July 5th, 2015, steps of the War Memorial Auditoriam, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.


Hello and "shalom". Today, we come together as citizens, concerned about the direction of this country. In Washington, the balance of power has been incredibly unstable. The progress made by Conservatives across the country in 2010 was totally erased in just two years. Last year, we were forced to go back to the starting line.

In the White House, we have a historically incompetent leader, who bows to foreign leaders, and views America as just another nation. We have a President who, in the course of just eight years, has radically transformed America. We have a President who has continually put the security of the nation, and our allies in jeopardy for the sake of politics.

In the Middle East, Iran is now picking fights with India. Who are we to guess that they would not harm Israel, a nation that has time and time again faced off against a determined and dangerous enemy. It is radical Islam. It is time we recognize and confront this foe, not cower in fear as this administration has done.

That is why I stand before you today. I have been under fire before. I have seen war first hand. We cannot allow four more years of this administrationís policy. The economy, after nearly ten years, is still stagnate. I have been in Congress for six years, and I am convinced we have the right policies to fix this mess. What we donít have is the proper President to fix this mess. And thatís why I am here. Today, I am announcing my campaign for the Presidency of the United States of America!

I will go for Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York.

He was reelected by a massive margin in 2014 over token opposition. While Republicans in the state oppose some of his reforms, he increasingly finds that his biggest battles are with the state's labor unions, the WFP, and the increasingly ambitious state legislature. He's beloved by centrists, not so much by liberal Democrats.

We don't know how many cars this family has, only that they consume 1/4 of a $60k car per year.

Bushie, this is not 'Nam, this is religion. There are rules.

The republicanism in this thread is disgusting.
