For those that don't get to be accepted into the typical right and left. For those that are the independents and moderates. For those that don't want to have to pick the lesser of two evils. Allow us to add more evils so you can pick from the lesser of 3 evils, or 4 evils, or even 5 evils (and maybe if we're luckly, a "good" might make it in).

Indeed, if the socialists and progressives split off from the liberals, or if the libertarians and neoconservatives split off from the conservatives, it will automatically make the unified party win.

Also, moderates will never get anywhere. They will always internally disagree with one another on the issues that make them moderates in the first place!

Unlike PoeJoe and the Left establishment, the Right supports all competition. Competition brings out the best and worst out of everyone. The elitists on the Left are apparently against the aforementioned. Also, the Right wants the best for DDO, not party rule. We are in support of new ideas and new parties -- as we support free speech and innovation.

Thank you,

Nags.

Official Right Organizer.

That only holds true if one party splits. If both parties split, then there is still competetion.

Here is my platform for DDO's 3rd party candidacy.

A campaign against removing these adds or at least finding alternate advertisements that are better geared towards the users of this website

Increase awareness of the site, in order to get more members and create a wider variety of debating options.

Create a debate tutorial for new members of this site to refer to when creating and engaging in debate, raising the quality of debates.

Creating a stricter set of rules for rounds, to refer to during forfeits and the like, in order to ensure even better quality rounds.

Adding a cross examination function to make rounds more interesting.

Create more requirements for voting, the most prominent of which would be requiring a RFD for votes.

Cracking down on banning individual's who violate the spirit of this website (people who create debates to get arguments, troll debaters, people who insult different religions, and social groups, etc), as well as inactive members in order to ensure a core group of interested debaters.

Removing the infinite period of voting as an option.

Thank you and I urge a 3rd party vote.

A simple solution this problem would be instant runoff voting.

The Left Caucus of Debate.org is respectful of all other parties and presidency candidates. The opinions of one member is not representative of the entire party.

Yours respectfully,

And are there any wiki entries for the rules of the presidency, the voting, whatever the PM thing is, and the individual party (left and right) rules are?

I plan on running, however. I am unaware as to the rules or style. Is it actually a rule that you must be here for so long? I can't find any wiki entries on it.

I am not sure but this does remind me
"add the official wiki to DDO"
is part of my campaign

But either way I am running thats my platform.

Should I take this as meaning that Oreele does not wish to be included in the Left caucus anymore?

We are not turning people away, I don't know where you got that idea. You should wait until the caucus to do anything so rash.

I am not even sure what is going on in the left caucus. One member says that being here 3 months is too short (I've been here much less), and another says otherwise. There are no documents as to rules or nothing, only what people say. I will still run for the left party, however, if that simply means being the figure head for the party and only pushing the party ideals, instead of my own, then I cannot in good conscious run for them.

No one is counted out yet. We don't know who will be running and for what positions. No one is automatically discounted due to their time here.

Then I will stay in with the "left" for now. I run based on my ideals, not the party's ideals. Now while I don't expect to get chosen and at that point in time will run as 3rd party. I will politely wait until that moment.
