Forum Game The Presidential Campaign 2 (the race began)

Welcome to the Presidential Campaign Game (part 2)!
This is a game of persuasion, manipulation, and devastation!​

Within the presidential campaign, there are from 4 to 6 candidates, both divided into two different parties. These candidates will go thru a primary stage, where each candidate will compete against their own party integrates. They must persuade voters to get to the most votes to move on for the final stage, which is the top voted candidates of each party competing with each other for the win.

NEW CATCH: Candidates can have a backer to boost up their vote count for the election day. In order to get a backer depends on what the candidates provided as information. Any reflections that matches the list in blanks below will gain them an extra score, although one of the options will be revealed until election day. After Primary, there will be a new set of options.

VOTERS
All voters can also persuade other voters into switching their votes. Those who lost the primaries can become voters as well but active candidates cannot. Any person outside the game is welcome to join as voter but only from 4 to 6 people can sign up for candidate. Those voters who picked the candidate that won the game also win as well.

WHAT TO DO IN THE GAME?
Here are the strategies of playing in this game:

- Persuading with anything that the voter can be appeal or feel convince to.
- Throwing banners, sponsors, or any kind of pictorial message to the voters that can get them convince or appeal.
- Showing evidence of their great acts in the community.
- Just blabber your way to victory and see if you manage to provide good information that matches the list in the backer votes.

ELECTION DAY
At the day of the elections, all voters must PM me their vote. All late votes will be discarded. After the end of that day, I will post the results.

Game Begins: March 21th

Primary elections: March 25th, 2017
Final Elections: April 1st, 2017

SIGN UP
To sign up for candidate nominee, please reply to this topic with a bold text.
I will only select the first 6 people who submitted their sign up for nominee.
Any other person who joins the game after sign up will be considered voters.
Anyone is welcome to join and participate. No max limit here.

My Policy

Economic
  • Interest rates will be unknown. No more confusion in the market over increases and decreases, we'll just make it illegal to tell anyone what they are. What's the time value of money in our country? Who knows!
  • We're going to print money, but we're also going to print counterfeit money! You can't value our currency if you don't know what it is! Hyperinflation averted forever!
Defence
  • Global warming means the refugee crisis will only get worse, people will be displaced and with borders closing everywhere, what's the solution? It's simple! Nukes! No, not nuke the refugees. That would be inhumane. My solution is to nuke the sun!
Taxation
  • Tax isn't fair, why doesn't the government get affected by it too? All Government income will have a 10% tax, where 10% of the tax coming in is taxed. This will increase employment because we'll need to hire accountants and possibly mathematicians to sort this mess out. We'll also hire a management consultant that will do nothing but play polka music.
  • As you're all well aware, taxing rich people causes them to leave. It's a problem many nations face, and an awkward thorn in the battles against tax avoidance. So, how do we solve it? It's simple, we attract rich people here by paying them! A negative tax, or subsidy of sorts. You beat 0% tax with negative tax! It makes so much sense!
Immigration
  • I am strengthening immigration, but, for equality's sake, I am also kicking out the useless people that are already in the country. We're going to have 0% unemployment because practically nobody will be here.
  • Walls to neighboring are expensive, and cost money, they are also expensive. How do we get around this? It's simple, don't build a wall. Dump nuclear waste. You can climb over a wall, but you can't climb over an elephant's foot! It also helps with our waste disposal plan.
General
  • All my policies change every 5 and a half seconds.

Decrease minimum wage to negatives! Force employees to pay corporations for the luxury of a job! If they refuse, they have to pay double to keep rich people in the country! If you don't like it, pay to leave!

Guys, I want to make a campaign promise right off the bat. If I win, I won't have any of my opponents killed in the middle of the night... unless they didn't vote for me, of course.

I'm shocked by the behaviour of my party and its candidates. Making a party, running for president and trying to participate in the government. Claiming to be anarchists while acting like statists. It's all so hypocritical.

So vote for me. I see their hypocrisy and I'm here to expose it. Not only that, but I will also be a great president. A real, anarchist one.

Imagine an anarchist utopia where every drug is legal, regulation is deregulated and everyone makes the laws. No one will have to follow these laws, though, unless they're from the anarcho-government. That's right. The only laws you'll have to follow will be anarchist ones. I'll ban the state but it doesn't matter because the law will be enforced by the state which is banned.

So vote for me. Vote for drugs. Vote for me while you're on drugs.

You dare to call yourself an Arbitrary Capitalist? Your incessant planning brings shame to our party. A true Arbitrary Capitalist doesn't decide what should be paid until a few moments beforehand. I say the government should hire officers that go around and tell random people to pay for things they've done. With no system other than "Hey, I think you should pay for that." Then they must pay us. For we are being gracious enough to employ them, they should be grateful for the opportunity to live in our free land, and also to pay for it.

Wait, that's called tax. Taxation is theft! Anyone that wants to tax people gets taxed 100%. Starting with Shawn.

This man is already making Campaign promises he can't keep. He wants to tax the government, just because i offered to give everyone the option of mandatory payment for services. This isn't tax. Tax is forced! I'm giving you the option to be forced!

And then there's this!

Do you really want someone who can just be okay with a nazi leader? This is unacceptable.

How dare you! My markets are not only free, they're free range! The markets aren't factory farmed markets! The little investors dance around in their suits laying eggs! Can you imagine that utopia? I bet you can't you statist scum.
 

Shawn Basnett

Discount Dev
You dare to call me a statist? My markets are so free, they have wings! That's right, magnificent eagle wings. They fly around, free as a bird, or should I say, Free as my markets.

Don't think I don't see your ridiculous plot. You want control of this country so you can create your own communist Utopia. I see it!

Guys, I reversed Roy's avatar. LOOK WHAT I FOUND, THAT DECEIVER

You should vote for me, not because I am telling you to do so, but because it is your choice to do so.

ARE YOU SUGGESTING VIDEO GAME REGULATION?
PRECISELY @roytheshort. THE AGE OF INDIE GAMES HAS DAWNED. THEY WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLD. AND AS FOR JESUS APPROVING, WHAT AM I RUNNING FOR, PASTOR OR PRESIDENT? I SAY ABORT AAA GAMES.

...except for World of Tanks and Halo. They are my favorites.

HE'S NOT EVEN PRESIDENT AND HE'S ALREADY GOING BACK ON HIS PLAN?!
OH GREAT. THE LYING MEDIA KICKS IN AGAIN. I MUST ADMIT, THE MEDIA IS DISGUSTING. A DISASTER.

THAT POST WAS SARCASM, THAT'S ALL...


BUT NO, THIS IS MY MASTER PLAN:

1. Promote all well-made Indie games for all. It's horrible how AAA games get all the leverage when all their content is merely explosions and blazing guns, not real unique stuff, like what Indies provide.

2. Create a Global Indie Alliance where Indies promote each-other and their great games. Everyone wins!

3.
Drain Greenlight's swamp without raising unfair submission fees on hard-working, honest Indie developers! Use common sense to judge which games get in and which don't, not spam-votes and comments!

While these two dips are over here arguing about video games and regulations, here's a picture of me handling what's important to the country: Walls.

I know @Shawn Basnett! You could be a comedian instead and drop out of the race! Apparently you aren't too concerned about the state of the industry. How about you deal with the real elephant in the room... GREENLIGHT.

I love politics.

Do you guys hear how I'm twisting his words?! Harrumph, I say! I say I'm being completely honest when I say I'm lying!
Now now now Shawn, calm down, gel that 'stache, wash your face, and go play a good Indie game. Then come back when you're cooled off. And state your opinion about GREENLIGHT.

So, we're supposed to be competing with other party members, but since it's all just the other party, I'm the obvious choice here.

Vote for me! It will be fun! Like a party
