I'm willing to do it for that date, though the question remains whether people are going to be impatient, or are willing to wait. Question of enthusiasm, as well.

At least the Freedom Party has expressed an interest in elections, unlike the Reform Party.

Generally speaking, how do the anarchists feel about elections?

Reasoning feels voting is useless (Contrary to what Rothbard thinks). Freedo will probably run as a 3rd party.

Will the day come when reasoning thinks for himself? He's the one who lives in quotes right?

I propose the following:

- All users who wish to run as a candidate must submit their decision on the 30th of September at the latest, along with their political party.

- Voting will take place between 0.00 AM 29th October 2010 and 30 October 23.59.

- To vote one simply posts in the voting thread their candidate of choice.

- The winner becomes Debate.Orgs president upon the votes being counted.

As for Presidential debates, I'd like to see them happen. I'm thinking the topic should be "X would be a better President than Y" and both argue their case.

In real-life I dislike voting for someone. Here it's just for fun.

We're also doing the governors elections, right?

No-one really cares about them. Most categories aren't being contested.

Is there really a point? I doubt Phil would actually give any powers, so at most it would be an OP respect with most of the site backing them up. Is there a real point, or is it just for fun?

It's "for fun" if you consider it fun lol. It's basically just for those who need an ego boost, considering we were well intentioned in the past and it's been pretty obvious that the effects ultimately = 0.

I think it is more of a popularity contest. Kinda like what happens in High School. But in this case......................

Lol I think its a pretty good idea then. Maybe more often then just semi-annual, but idk, just an idea.

Difference between expressing interest and doing it right, or expressing interest for blatant political opportunism. Guess which one you're doing. ;)

You've openly said you prefer dictatorship and DDO was now a dictatorship. At least we believe in elections.

Let's not kid ourselves - DDO is a dictatorship. We're much like Iran in a way; sure, we have democracy, but it doesn't matter a damn thing because the Supreme Leader is the one who actually holds all the cards.

We can at least make-believe, as is this whole democracy process.

Even in make-believe land Volkov is a dictator. For shame.
