Ahto Presidency Campaign 2008: Candidacy Signup

My fellow Ahtonians:

Four score and twenty months ago, our forebears set up this forum in freedom in freedom and peace. Much has rocked that stability, but we have persevered, and in the eyes of Almighty God, have prospered. But while our democracy has prospered, it is time for change. The recent wave of violence in Kavar Square is evidence of this. And so, my fellow Ahtonians, I call upon all upstanding members to vote in this election for the first President of Ahto, and for candidates, their running-mates and parties, to step forward forthwith, for this campaign.

All candidates are to present themselves, their running-mates, their party and their manifestos here.

Please remember electoral college decree 12; no candidate is to attempt to use emoticons for their party.

Name: Darth InSidious, alias DI, alias Insidious, alias Darth, alias Darathy
Party: Sith Supremacists for Progress Party
Running-Mate: Ender "Montu" Wiggin
Manifesto: We of the SSPP stand for CHANGE, for HOPE and fore a bright dawn on the world of tomorrow, while always remembering our past. We will throw off the shackles of what bound us, and rejoice in what liberated us. We believe that we must move forward, not backward. Upward, not forward. And always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!

Slogans: LET US ONCE MORE WEAR THE ERMINE OF THE NORTH
SSPP: You know it makes sense.
Sith Supremacists: Better than lipstick on a domesticated animal of your choice.

"Maybe,
You'll think of me,
When you are all alone..."


EDIT: Since the sudden, and tragic, demise of Mr. M.G. Nails, Mr. E. Wiggin has stepped up as a replacement for my running-mate.

Hail, fellow Ahtonauts! I hereby present myself as a candidate for the Presidency of Ahto.

Name: Litofsky
Party: Pharaonism Party of the United Human Alliance
Running Mate: TBD
Manifesto: Hail, Ahtonauts! We here at the PPoUHA propose that the greedy governments of today be abolished in favor of the return to a smooth running bureaucracy! "How," you might ask, "can a bureaucracy run smoothly?" Well, here at the PPoUHA, we support that a Pharaoh rule, with a Senate to oversee his/her actions and help create laws. With Pharaohs elected from the most effective Senator, the PPoUHA ensure that Humanity will run smoothly, and that you shall achieve true pleasure!

Party Promises: In an effort to surround myself with experienced, knowledgeable members of LucasForums, should I be elected, I have promised Her Evil Mistress, Darth333, and His Royalness, Darth InSidious, positions in my Cabinet (Secretary of State and Defense, respectively). They shall help me govern Ahto sagaciously!

Slogan(s): All hail Pharaoh!
Glory be unto s/he!
Hedonism, for the win!


EDIT: My support now goes to Darathy. Victory to the SSPP!

Dear fellow swk members,

As reformed (and unrepented) evil overlords, we know what’s good for you (and for us)! In the past, we have protected you, our loyal servants, against alien invasions, Jedi, droid, heroes, Sith, gizka and even dragonflies armies, etc (throw in everything you want here except our names).

We have built the swk continent (or is it country?... ask either Palin or my running mate) out of the Matrix and offered you a place to post your ideas, evil or not. You know what we are capable of! We also both have substantial international experience too (I swear that we can both see the Swamp from where we are!)

My running mate tk102 is also capable of the most nerdy tricks ever...see for yourselves: here and here !

LeXX, on the other hand, is excellent at shooting wolves from a helicopter (if spaceship).


Name: Darth333, triplethree, deethree, d3, the candy nerd

Party: People’s Party of SWK

Running mates:
tk102
LeXX

Manifesto: (note : it will change according to your wishes…we are retirees after all and, in addition to experience, we have plenty of time on your hands to adapt it according to the needs of the campaign as we you wish!)

However, in short (and for now), we promise power for everyone (everyone gets admin powers to ensure peace by whatever means they wish! – as retired overlords, we get to watch for our own enjoyment - ).

We also promise to establish a monarchy: think about it! It also means no more elections and/or election threads! (since you also get the possibility to bash each other's skulls ensure peace and prosperity as you want, it's the best of both worlds!)

Edit: All Ahtonauts will also become Ubernauts!

If you vote for us, you will also have a chance to win this wonderful nerdy toilet to allow you to browse you favorite forum at any time while staying in shape (or drinking beer if you are of age)! *


Slogans: p0w3h for everyone and peace for us!
Athonauts to Ubernauts!
KSE - Knowledge and Satisfaction for Everyone!

Link to tk102's introductory speech..


*subject to availability and our own will

Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as Divided Surrealo-Marxist Anarchy-ic by its opponents in power? Where is the Opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of Divided Surrealo-Marxist Anarchy, against the more advanced opposition parties, as well as against its reactionary adversaries?

It seemed to me a highly insistent sentence - a sentence, I might say, which knocked at the window. I quickly took note of it and was prepared to disregard it when something about its whole character held me back. The sentence truly astounded me. Unfortunately I still cannot remember the exact words to this day, but it was something like: 'A man is cut in half by the window'; but it can only suffer from ambiguity, accompanied as it was by the feeble visual representation of a walking man cut in half by a window perpendicular to the axis of his body.

There have been some developments in My Glorious Party, namely:

  • The inclusion of the prestigious Murphon in the Party, attaining the post of planned position of Minister of Translation and Minister of Entertaining Government Sanctioned Chaos
  • The adoption of The Cow Song and Bananaphone as the Joint Anthems of the State
  • The adoption of Ceci n'est pas un drapeau as the official flag:


Moo!

I hereby announce my candidacy for the Supreme Imperator President of Ahto!

Name: igyman, aka iggy, DrIggy

Party: Global Dictatorial Party

Running-mate: / (awaiting potential candidates)

Manifesto: We at GDP, starting with yours truly, hereby pledge to bring absolute order into Ahto. We will give the Ahtonauts what every citizen truly wants - the illusion of free will. Ahto will be ruled relentlessly by yours truly, who will unilaterally make all important decisions for the Greater Good, but will make sure everyone believes their voices are heard, because after all, that's what really matters.

Slogans: "We give people what they want - someone to think and work for them!"
"We bring Order where Chaos lurks."

Thank you. Thank you everyone. Thank you. I just want... Thank you. Thank you.

I just want to thank everyone for their time spent in coming together here, in this forum, at this time, to construct what will inevitably be referred to as the most credible, most believable, and most legitimate sham election this forum has ever seen. And to all our opponents, we can only imagine the pride you must feel in these fleeting moments while we share our limelight with you. To all the Puppets People of Ahto, Darth333 and I shall never forget our lofty titles and neither shall you. We know that the inevitable faux victory of the People's Party of SWK is not ours, but yours... and yours... and yours... and not Devon's. Rest assured that when elected, Universal Administratorship will be at the top of our agenda*. That means freedom to change your name at will, to post announcements at your whim, freedom from binding rules, and freedom from order. That glorious day is nearing when we will all bear witness to the transformation of Ahtonaut to Ubernaut. Can we help make this happen? Yes we can.

Join People's Party of SWK.

* subject to change without warning

I have no faith in a vote when one of our fellow members has already demonstrated his ability to manipulate the system with ease. So while my heart says to support El Sitherino, my brain and my account status, says I must support Darth333 and her evil running mate tk102.

Thus sayeth the Birthday Girl and Momerator:
This thread is to announce your candidacy, and only your candidacy. If you wish to make speeches, canvass and/or bribe potential voters, sign up the dead/felons/illegal aliens such as Hutts and Twi'leks/assorted others who aren't legal to vote, and otherwise talk about why people should be insane enough to vote for you, then you shall do so in the Ahto Presidency Campaign 2008: Canvassing and Campaigning thread.

1. You shall remain In Character. If your are Out Of Character (aka OOC), I shall exercise my Princess Powers to alter/delete such comments.
2. There shall be no gross smear campaigns and insinuations of misconduct, sexual or otherwise. You shall smear each other in a most friendly, cordial, and semi-professional fashion. Accusations of cheating, lying, Evil Death and Destruction, and/or other similar mischief is acceptable, rape is not OK, and molestation is Right Out.
3. There shall be no OOC complaints, for there is a Report Post button for you to use if you choose to say something Out Of Character.

That is all, unless I choose to further exercise my Princess Powers to change the rules to suit my campaign.

Note: El Sitherino exercised his Prince powers and deleted the canvassing posts, which were subsequently moved to the Canvassing thread. Thank you.

Dear Athonauts,

The SWK People's Party is happy to announce the formation of a Triumvirate of Reformed Evil Overlords: the great LeXX has now joined our team and has agreed to put her formidable experience at your service!

With this new addition to the team, we can now guarantee that the process of transformation of Athonauts into Ubernauts will be smooth and 100% painless (as long as you don't disguise yourselves as wolves because we are providing her with a helicopter...she told me that she loves to shoot those animals).
