This June, vote for bossyburrito and SeventhProfessor for your president and vice president!

Now, the first question on your mind may be: "Why are these fools announcing their candidacy so early?". Well, we realized some may not take us completely seriously, so we figured we could justify putting our announcement in the main forum if we were the most serious candidates at the time of posting. Anyhow, on to why you should elect us!

What do the DDO president and VP do? Well, they make a few goals (note: these are all generally the same between all candidates) and attempt to complete these goals. We promise to do whatever other candidates say they will, but to separate ourselves, we will point out why we are the most qualified to take the position!

Because of all platforms' similarity, the spot goes to the person who either is more likely to fulfill their platform, or in some cases, whoever spams the most barely qualified voters to vote for them. If desperate, we'll strive for a mixture of the two. However, I think we can say beyond reasonable doubt that we will be the candidates that can most easily get what we desire. How, you ask? Unrelenting harassment of moderation.

As Max will surely tell you, bossy and I are very fun in a hangout. We've developed a close relationship with him over the past year or so, and we've gotten to the point where we can ask him about anything (whether it be The Scarlet Letter or the defacing of currency) and we can have a conversation for hours. Thanks to this, we're in a unique position to serve as your elected officials with direct support from moderation.

Vote bossy/7th in June 2015!

Max will never get a good night's sleep unless he gives in to our demands. We will make sure of it.

You're the first ones to come and say that, I hope you know. I'm sick of being told that my life belongs to God or my neighbors. What refreshing rationality. You have my support.

Heil25 and 2001bhu should be president and vice president.
I will change my sig weekly. Week 4.

Fun fact of the week
Clumsy alien Jar Jar Binks was introduced in The Phantom Menace for comic relief, but he was initially a two-faced mercenary who was to betray Qui-Gon Jinn, a Jedi Master played by Liam Neeson.

Joke of the week:

In for campaign manager. My next black hat guide will show you the way to win, and the other candidates are probably too lazy to implement it or have morals.

"Anarchy, as a political concept, is a naive floating abstraction: . . . a society without an organized government would be at the mercy of the first criminal who came along and who would precipitate it into the chaos of gang warfare. But the possibility of human immorality is not the only objection to anarchy: even a society whose every member were fully rational and faultlessly moral, could not function in a state of anarchy; it is the need of objective laws and of an arbiter for honest disagreements among men that necessitates the establishment of a government."

Bossy is a rational man qua man who reads Ayn Rand. Please abstain from such vile calumnies.

Not a troll candidacy. Almost certainly a satire though. The main difference in this case is that one bears at least a small amount of intellectual value.
