It was kind of a weird endorsement... you can't simply vote for the President and then the Vice President on separate tickets, so endorsing the VP separately is rather needless.

I endorsed Kalwejt separately from Napoleon because Kalwejt had a separate declaration of candidacy from Napoleon.  The reason I endorsed Kalwejt was because he was Napoleon's running mate. 

Quite simple really.

Btw, I don't know whether it's sad or just comic to withdraw an endorsement for such a laughable reason (and considering Atlasian, hm, "political culture").

Winfield, just tell it's about 2012 board and Mitt Romney. The people know you already and will understand Tongue

I can assure you, with 100% absolute certainty, this has nothing at all to do with the 2012 board and Mitt Romney, and everything to do with your ill considered  baby comments.

I think the overall contextual problem is that such issues were raised to begin with. My potential administration hopes to make the game fun enough that bored teenagers won't resort to these disturbing forms of amusement.

Is it possible that someone (Ben or Clarence) has asked Winfield to be their VP, so he wants to clear up any previous endorsements for that position for whatever reasons he can find?

No, this is not possible.

Governor Napoleon prepares to take stage in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A crowd of 45,000 awaits as the Governor's first visit to the Pacific Region brings enormous excitement. Anticipation builds and the thunder of their cheering is heard through out the whole city....

Santa Fe, New Mexico

New Mexico, it is so great to be here today. You know, this is my first political visit out here in the Pacific Region. A great region, of course, it is lovely here. Lots of trees. I like trees.

Anyway, we're all in agreement that Atlasia needs a leader, someone who is courageous enough to do what is right, rather than what is popular. This campaign is about bringing Atlasians together. We recognize the problem, but I see no solutions! We must reject the status quo and embrace the future- and I am not talking about the current administration when I say this. I am talking about our attitude, our approach, our investment in our country. At a time when veteran members are leaving in droves, new members are hesitant to register, and active members aren't as active as before, I've been here trying to make things work. When my region had a political system that was broken and ineffective, I didn't sit on the sideline. I worked with others in my region who saw what I saw and together we fought back. Inactive governor? We can do something about that. Outdated constitution? We did something about that, too.

Now we have problems at the federal level. Since the last presidential election, five Senate seats have been vacated prematurely! That's 50% of the Senate right there! And the Senate debates now, well, let's be honest, they don't come close to the debates we had in the summer and fall of 2011. Even now, the biggest debate in the Senate is a bill I introduced! That's why I have brought in a team that I think can really help energize the politics of this nation. My running-mate Kalwejt is a bold personality with a creative streak that we desparately need for this game, and he has the right attitude about the game: we can work with anyone if we need to.

When I saw the health care reform proposals that were clearly unable to fill the holes in the system, I took action. I reached across the aisle to RPP Senator MOPolitico, who I had absolutely no previous connection with and sat down and we threw ideas back and forth. We had jobs to do, so we did it. We made the tough choices that others might have been afraid to propose, or that might have been unpopular, but now, months later, we're on track to reform health care into a fair and sustainable program that still keeps our nation healthy as ever.

Atlasia has a choice in this election. We can step in to a future where the game is lively and exciting, or we could fade away into permanent decline. This is what we are voting for, and a vote for Napoleon and Kalwejt in June 2012 will lead Atlasia down a new path- a more active, inclusive game where people want to participate in the hottest political and cultural debates of the day. A vote for Napoleon and Kalwejt is a vote for an Atlasian Renaissance. It's easier than it sounds, after all. Wink

Thank you New Mexico. I can't wait to see more of the great Pacific Region as I campaign across the country these next two months.

Las Vegas, Nevada

And here I am. They said it was a gamble trying to make it here after spending most of the day in New Mexico. That was a joke, so you guys can go ahead and laugh. *dead silence* Okay...so how is it going tonight Sin City? Everyone doing alright? Sin City...is that politically correct? Ehhh I don't care if it is or not, it's fitting! I'm here today to talk about personal freedoms. I've noticed that the business here is booming ever since my smoking ban repeal became law...good for you, Nevada! As President, I will be the same Napoleon I have always been, and let the unique culture that has developed here, and all over the Pacific Region, thrive. It isn't my priority to decide how you medicate, how you recreate, or how you generate. More than any other Senator in my time here, I've fought for your right to make your own decisions for your personal life. Any bill reaching my desk that threatens this will be vetoed with haste. Now, if you don't mind, this is Las Vegas. I'm not going to waste your time, or my time, with any more boring speeches. Vote for Napoleon and Kalwejt in June 2012, and have fun! Time to party!!

**disclaimer: this campaign "promises" that donations are not being used on gambling, alcohol, drugs, hotels, hookers (ahem: escorts) (ahemahem: tramps), and what not. we "assure" you. Wink

Throughout the rest of this week you will hear about border control, immigrants' rights, shoreline preservation, national defense, and other various stances. As you may realize, each of my campaign stops will highlight different positions and issues that are relevant to where I am speaking at. Of course, other topics will be discussed along with, but I think this will be the best way to get to know the public. Wink

Tweed is talking about the number of political jobs in this game, and I am here to lend a voice of credibility. From before my very first Senate campaign, I have recognized that there are too many positions and not enough interested people. I have a real record of doing something about it, too. In the Northeast, I reformed the Constitution to eliminate the Lieutenant Governor and reduce Assembly seats. The result? At least as many candidates as seats available ever since. In the Senate, I pushed for Cabinet size reduction and flexibility. While many mocked my suggestion that the RG and SoFE be consolidated, Homely shows us it works quite well. Now the VP can serve in a Cabinet post and Secretaries can serve in more than one position.

A lot of candidates will be talking the talk- I will keep walking the walk. Napoleon/Kalwejt June 2012: for those who like some Substance with their Style. Smiley

Another candidate in this race has brought up nuclear energy. I have always been a passionate believer that the best environment is a clean environment, and moving away from fossil fuels will help accomplish this. One of the main concerns about nuclear power is keeping everything safe. I would ensure strict standards for nuclear safety, and applaud President now Vice President Tmthforu and my running mate Kalwejt for working to increase oversight of nuclear facilities with the Nuclear Safety Act of 2011.

Governor Napoleon Officially Responds to Negative Tweed Comments

 
Young Tweed, I finally got around to watching your latest video and I have a few comments.

You note animosity between yourself and Kalwejt. Interestingly, to me at least, is that your running mate "Bald Motherer" and I have traditionally been political allies.

Your video actually does raise my opinion of you (as a candidate, I have always liked you as a poster), despite your improper characterization of my candidacy, and in part because I think the positive attributes you are applying to yourself can be applied to me. Therefore, I attribute it to ignorance as opposed to malice. In fact, you can apply that label to others and be correct for the most part, but I am curious if bgwah agrees that a Napoleon presidency would be boring or lacking in passion. I once sparked enough passion to score the Worst Senator title (with 45% of Atlasians voting me as the worst) to now holding an 85% approval rating as Northeast Governor,  which to me says a lot more than "Meh".

I find Atlasia to be a game and I play it for fun. Sure I am something of a workhorse, rewriting Constitutions and all that jazz, but so is bgwah, who really put in good work on the Wiki, and we don't do it because I expect to be rewarded for it in someway, we do it so the game works and others can have fun too.

There are enough moderate heroes, if I cared about being respected or pleasing the most people, I would have probably bored myself out of this game already and picked a VP less controversial than Kal, who is a great guy by the way and we have had our own bouts of animosity at times. I do care about being a good, or great even, President if elected but not at the cost of what you correctly label "passion". I won't go around creating false controversies but you can be damn sure that I will stick to my guns. I think anyone would back me up on this, even my haters.

I am trying to keep everything organized in the first post. This will be a long campaign with nearly two months to go, this thread is eight pages deep already. Suggestions for improvements are always welcome.

Our Platform of Platitudes

Most of our detailed proposals will be made known over the course of the campaign, including tonight's upcoming stop in San Diego, CA. Until then, Kal and I give you whatever good campaign needs: a general sense of what we stand for.

 The Napoleon/Kalwejt ticket believes that the environment is precious and that Atlasia must be responsible with our resources and preserve aspects of our environment that are threatened. We support moving toward more renewable energy and investing in newer, cleaner technologies.

The Napoleon/Kalwejt ticket believes that war's only purpose is as a last resort option when all other efforts are exhausted. We believe that peace can be encouraged through opening markets and offering straight-forward diplomacy. We believe tension with nations in the Middle East and South America is best resolved with understanding rather than force; at the same time, we will not tolerate human rights abuses.

The Napoleon/Kalwejt ticket believes that individuals can and should be responsible for their own actions. To that end, we maintain that the government should stay out of our personal lives as much as possible. Social policy should set fair boundaries in public and keep private matters private. We strongly support the right to privacy and believe Atlaisa is suited best by a tolerant and respectful culture.

The Napoleon/Kalwejt ticket believes that the government's role in the economy best serves its purpose when it empowers individuals. We support progressive taxation and robust, sustainable social services. We prefer to see an economy where workers' interests and business' interests are not in stark contrast with one another.

The Napoleon/Kalwejt ticket believes that game reform is best achieved when the community has an open, respectful discussion to find problems and solutions alike. We value creativity and collaboration and would like to see the game become more interactive as to encourage involvement.

Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona

Greetings Arizona!
Itís a pleasure to have this opportunity to travel your beautiful state, with her vast deserts and sturdy peaks. The diversity and beauty is representative of what the people of Atlasia embody- we are a diverse nation that has a lot to appreciate. Iím running to serve as your next President because I believe that these values are at the core of our strength as a nation. The coming together of our unique backgrounds, talents, histories, and desires laid the foundation for this house, but Atlasia must be a home, an accepting and embracing home for all.

And so I propose, if elected president, to increase legal immigration to this nation and offer immigrants opportunities that are unavailable to them in their native lands. The same opportunities our families were awarded when they first arrived, we must continue the warm, welcoming tradition. I support strengthening our ESL (English as Second Language) programs so that we can help break down that language barrier and really open the gates for immigrants to Atlasia to become full-fledged members of this great community weíve built. And I have always stood strongly against racial discrimination; this will not change if elected your president. It is time we begin to bridge the racial gap once and for all- this is an evil we can eliminate and it will be done.

That being said, we need to protect Atlasia, and securing the border consciously will assist us in keeping the nation safe. As Commander in Chief, I wonít allow our nation to simply accept the constant threat. In the Senate, Iíve helped to reduce border crime through legalization of drugs. Cutting the financial legs off of these gangs and cartels has gotten us a long way. If we take the important steps we need to, the improvements will continue, and you can count on me to do just that.

San Diego, California

Thank you, San Diego! I had a lovely afternoon at the beach, and met a lot of San Diegans- a lot of visitors too! I know tourism is important to this economy and after seeing just what is at stake here- the natural beauty and the successful industry your city has built upon it- I understand even more the need to make our best effort to preserve our shoreline. Using cleaner fuels and toughening standards for our ports will help keep this beach beautiful as long as we want it to. I will not be a President who ignores the environment, or lets it take a backseat to other priorities while claiming that I support it. In the Senate, I pushed for green legislation- environmental protection and conservation, and a green jobs bill with my friend Fuzzy.

Now even though the Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya wars are over, and our troops have been welcomed home, we can’t afford to ignore the security of our nation. Defense has long had a large presence in this city, and even though I will be a President who utilizes diplomacy over force, there is a lot of technology we must invest in to stay competitive globally, and San Diego is going to be a part of that. The future of defense starts here, I will work alongside the Senate and the Secretary of External Affairs to modernize our military and keep us adequately prepared.

I have enjoyed seeing what San Diego has to offer. Make sure to vote for Napoleon/Kalwejt in June 2012 for a better, safer Atlasia. Now, if you will excuse me, I have to catch this flight back to New York and take care of some Northeast business. The minimum wage increase has passed the Assembly unanimously and I intend to sign the bill.

Thank you for the wonderful question Sam.

I oppose offshore drilling. The BP incident, especially, shows us how dangerous offshore drilling can be. Without a huge leak, we damage the environment, and harm tourism, fishing, and other industries. With a major leak, we risk permanent and severe environmental damage and economic turmoil for spill areas. The issue needs to be handled maturely, however. Atlasia has stringent regulations that can make the process safer whereas if the buck stops at a drilling ban, the oil industry will simply move into other nations. I intend to negotiate an international pact to reduce or eliminate offshore drilling. Additionally, we will continue to move forward with renewable industry (Atlasia is already far, far ahead of America here) so that our energy supply is not significantly affected. I will not sacrifice our long term prosperity for short term political gain.

Ideas to reinvigorate the VP position will be coming soon. I am looking at the issue very closely, taking advice from current VP Tmthforu, my campaign advisor and former VP Marokai Blue, and obviously, my running mate, former and future VP Kalwejt. It is important to me to involve people who understand the position best when moving forward with reforming the position. Kalwejt and I were major proponents of the Constitutional Amendment that allowed the VP to serve simultaneously as a Cabinet Officer. We hope to continue breathing life into a position so important yet so under-utilized.

You mean the "Kalwejt amendment"? I strongly oppose it. No one would run for it, like the previous Lieutenant Governor position in the Northeast where we only ever had one elected by write in (which we both have seen firsthand Wink ).

But as President, I have no say in the Constitutional Amendment process other than my personal vote, so I couldn't do anything about it either way. Smiley
