Cantina presidental election, 2014
#1
Since it's been years since we've had an election, I hereby call an election for president of the Cantina.

Here you can announce your candidacy and ask questions of your candidates. I have final say over who will appear on the ballot.

Ford: About 12 minutes.

As the Vice President from the previous Administration, I hereby declare my candidacy. I'm running on the Republican Posters Party ticket. If I am elected to office, I vow to make good on my campaign promises:

1. Strengthen our Borders.

2. Increase militia spending.

3. Tough on Trolling

4. Lower your taxes.

5. Put some vending machines in the cafeteria!

I'm announcing that as of this moment, I'm also a candidate for president! I'll be the sane, third party candidate (the Liberal Democrat candidate since the US has no sane third party). I promise:

1. More hilarious topics in The Cantina
2. Free ponies!
3. Free cookies to everyone

3. Free cookies to everyone Chocolate beats cookies hands down!

Not much VOTING going on here; and a Three-ring Circus under the big top!!!Blink

A vote for me is a vote for the more mature (I'm OLD) and experienced (I have more posts) candidate!!!Clap A vote for the others is a vote for liars and Commies; a vote for them is a vote against our illustrious DICTATOR Paul... er, I mean Leader of Forums Paul; I will be his Puppet... um, I mean President of Choice!!! If you cross Paul... you DIE!!!BashChairFaintRip

Oh, and I promise funnier (and MORE) post than the others - daily, free air, and free CHOCOLATE for everyoneYoda-drool ... unless WE have to buy it; then you're on your own!!!WinkThumbsupW00tExcited

I agree with you, oh Fearless Puppet-Master Paul, but warn that more than 3 candidates is detrimental to the voters; the US elections can "barely" tolerate more than 2 candidates and much more with 3 of them right? Just sayin'. I really look forward to debates (how many?) cuz I was on the debate team in High School and college!!!YesThumbsup

About time we call a new election. I'm announcing my candidacy for President as the Board's Democratic Party candidate. I will trash you all in all public debates and other stuff like that.

T'Pol: You accused me of being old.
