All of the credit to the incredible organization of this election goes to OreEle. Thanks so much.

Now on to the results:

This election was a nail-biter all the way until the end. At first, Innomen with the Independent Party soared ahead of the Freedom and Party Parties by double digits. FREEDO, realizing his imminent defeat dropped out of the competition. However, all of FREEDO's previous supporters switched mainly to Cody_Franklin of the Freedom Party. The vote kept going back and forth, 29:29, 30:30, 31:31, until...a last minute surge of votes came in.

Ladies and Gentleman, the next President of Debate.org:

CODY_FRANKLIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Final Results:

Thanks again to OreEle for the organization and everything.

This is wrong, I suggested in the PM that we get innomen back for his mole (you) and dirty politics by voting for Cody. We asked him to drop and he did, so we could get cody to win.

By the way, I did organize the entire first part of the election process, then stepped down when I became a candidate. Just pointing that out. I did a lot of work making sure people stayed informed on everything.

When I discussed with them (Cody). The conversation was entirely horrible. Their name is also a huge factor. It is misleading enough to be compared to fascism.

Okay, first of all - I'm the VP so when you say "them", you are referring to me as well. Just a heads up.

Second of all, based upon one conversation you had with Cody where YOU weren't completely appeased, this automatically renders the election -- and victory -- disastrous? Have you thought that maybe you should PM Cody and instigate another conversation? Or have you thought to contact others in the Freedom party to see their take on the conversation/issue?

And lastly, you have a problem with our name? Sir, I'm familiar with your interpretation of freedom and I have to tell you now that your idea of "freedom" is not what Cody or I have in mind when using such a title. But in all seriousness, our name is of little importance in comparison to our stances and promises. Is there somewhere we've let you down within our "political platform"?

Since I have finals tomorrow along with a 5 hour Karate tournament, I will be getting offline now but I WILL respond to your upcoming post later. Thanks for the input Mirza.

First, I clarified it was Cody, and he is your representative. Second, yes, the problem is partially the name, but on top of that Cody mocked Authoparty for being strict, while he came with no better "policies" whatsoever. It is problematic. It is not truthful.

You go to karate? Well, thank you very much for the conversation! Adios!

I keep telling you what the miscommunication was. You misunderstood the libertarian conception of freedom, and you misunderstood the point of the pseudo-criticism. Do you remember the absurd attack ads that Panda made last election? It was kind of like that. In good fun. Your name was the Authoparty. It was perfectly acceptable to sling some mud about oppression and tyranny.

You just keep repeating that I'm deceptive, rewording your criticism every time so it sounds like you're saying something original. The fact that our conception of freedom doesn't match your own doesn't mean that ours isn't "true" freedom. You're basically trying to tell me that I'm not a True Scotsman.

Here's a good chart a la Joel Feinberg:

http://tinyurl.com...

My point is that you're equating a de facto freedom of action--specifically, de facto liberty--with de jure liberty. You took my statement that people can do whatever they want to mean that we would just sit back and let it happen because we don't care. What I meant was that anyone can commit a criminal action. A thief can steal, a murderer can murder, and an arsonist can commit arson (if we assume that the justice system is primarily reactive, anyway); however, though they have that de facto liberty, their state of de jure liberty has several restraints placed on it by political authorities. Similarly, people can sit on this site and do awful things--they're in that unrestricted state of liberty; however, there are specific rules legislated against those sorts of actions.

I'm really hoping you understand.
