Maybe we should do it every 6 months?

Edit: Seeing MrBob freaking out is too much fun.

So will the Cappies and Annies have a run off or are they going to form a coalition?

Wait a second...wouldn't a tie be something Commie-Bob would want? Equality and all that?

(OK, technically everyone would get the same number of votes...work with me here)

Aren't all three of them equal, 'cause the anarchists and capitalists had one vote subtraction?

Ah... last minute commie campaigning... those poor fools.

No, Capitalists, Communists and Anarchists all have a one vote deduction. This puts them at 20, 19, and 20, respectively.

I demand a recount!

The system has failed!

We don't have a president! It's total Anarchy!

*ahem*

If I might make a suggestion?

Now. Currently we stand in a very unusual area. Though it is true that Commiespace is actually one step behind both Anarchy and Capitalspace, it's relatively immaterial considering how close all three groups are anyway, and all of the other groups don't even add up to half of what we three pulled in on our own.

While it is possible that, with the elimination of the other parties and a revote for just the three of us, one group may pull far ahead of the others, I do not think that it is overall the best course of action for us to take. As a member of Anarchyspace, I find it ideologically unsound to try to narrow down the people's choices even further, and there really isn't any guarantee that it will be so much more effort without yet another deadlock in any case.

So, instead, I propose that we let anarchism win.

Whoa, whoa, don't shoot! I'm going somewhere with this, trust me.

You see, my plan had been, should Anarchyspace have won, to set up three distinct communes within the overall system . . . namely, they would have been anarcho-communist, anarcho-capitalist, and just-plain-anarchist in nature. Under this arrangement, everyone would still be free to go about their lives, making their own decisions, but they would also be able to live under the core ideals of virtually all of the parties represented in this election.

In the anarcho-communist section, Comrade Bob's people would be able to go around sharing and wearing hats and growing moustaches and doing all the other things that communists like to do. In the anarcho-capitalist arena, they could work their little tushis off in a free enterprise system and recieve direct profit for their efforts, becoming just as fabulously wealthy as they might want and smoking hundred dollar bills until the cows come home. Meanwhile, everyone else could follow their own dreams, no matter what those dreams are, in the remaining space! Even if those dreams involve indecent acts with farm animals, you sick freaks!

If I had been elected president, I would have kept the title but abolished the power associated with it (until the next election, natch), and I, Bob, and Pin (or perhaps Sortelli or Hat, since they took a more active role in the campaign) would stand as prominent philosophical leaders to gently guide the people and advise them on their way to greatness and freedom!

This dream can still live, if all of you will it! We could have peace and freedom on the forums for the first time since . . . um, yesterday, or some other earlier time, I guess! Mansex and pie and hot chicks shall flow like booze!

Booze, dammit! BOOZE!

Thank you for your time.

I would never think of taking over Capitalist Space even though our dear RPin has been strangly absent for much of the whole thing.

<_<

What a silly idea.
