Rand Paul Presidential Announcement! (Louisville, Kentucky)
Image Link

Hello everyone! Today I am here to spread a message of hope and prosperity for America! For too long we have seen our country ripped off time and time again! Today I have decided that I am taking a stand against the very things that have prevented America and it's people to have true prospects for the future! I will take a stand against the Washington machine that is now overburdened with bureaucrats who believe they know better than the American people! I will take a stand against the unimaginable size in which government has grown into! I will take a stand against unconstitutional foundations and uphold the precious values that our founding fathers left behind!

Right now the Republicans need a new type of republican. My fellow Americans, I am that different Republican who has a plan for America's future and to see to it that anyone regardless of their position can succeed in our society! It's the idea of the American dream and our values that have been undermined and ignored time and time again! Ladies and gentlemen it is a pleasure to announce that I will be running for President of the United States! This is more than just a campaign!
This is a movement that will be strong as the days go by! This will be a movement based on our founding principles and the policies that help to protect the freedom of the individual! Now with that being said, lets defeat the Washington machine and unleash the American dream!

Turn closed. If you are still working on something, you may finish it. (I'm not as strict as Lumine.)
Do you know when the next turn & national and state polling will go up?

Glad to see ya back! Be sure to check the PMS. Also, do you know when you can release state polling for other states like South Carolina or Nevada?

I think Rand Paul would be able to outperform in South Carolina when you take into consideration he already has endorsements from Senator Tim Scott and Governor Nikki Haley. Nonetheless I digress.

Endorsements do matter, but not as much as campaign quality.

Agreed. If you have an endorsement from the President himself but you run a sucky campaign, you'll be running into a brick wall with voters and getting knock backed hard.
Agreed. Although, not sure what I am doing wrong exactly. I don't play these types of campaign games often. Any tips?

I think your running a good campaign but there are just not that many libertarian Republicans in the party and you are focused too much on youth who usually don't vote Republican or even vote at all
So I essentially need to outreach towards different voters. I think that's probably best.

I think the same time as always
What time exactly? I don't really keep track of time. Only the amount of days I got.

Hey guys, just letting everyone know Tim Scott's endorsement was already taken from Rand Paul a while ago. Just making sure everyone is aware of that......

I don't think Cruz would endorse a libertarian like Paul. More than likely, Jindal would get the Support.
I mean it is his choice. Nonetheless I am surprised! I'll probably make a statement about this and thank him for the support.

He said he'll post tomorrow on Friday. This guy really does seem like he needs someone else to help run the game alongside him though. Like a co-moderator. Also hopefully he can make a news recap of what's happening since it has been quite eventful.

I have more than enough time on my hands but I am already in the race. Not sure who else can do it or if Grassroots is even open to the idea.

Well, its Friday. I don't want to sound impatient but can we get an estimate as to when the next turn is coming up?

Guys I really don't want to sound insensitive but it shouldn't take this long for a new turn to be posted.

ASPN is the new mod. He is running the game from now on, so respect him like you respected me.



Nope, sorry kid.

Thank you. I will start working on a turn tonight. Though considering I'm just now running it don't expect a turn soon. I'm off tomorrow so I will spend the day working on it.
Great! Just be sure to take into account of all of the events, endorsements, & who did & didn't campaign and all. Although, you probably already know this.
