This thread shall serve as the voting thread, for the referendum on the presidency. This is the official thread, as was announced earlier this week.

**********BACKGROUND:***********

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

http://www.debate.org...

As you will note, the thread there did not specify who would post the referendum. The thread said only that the referendum will "take place on Wednesday July 13th. The reason the thread said only what it did is because this must come from the community, and Airmax has stated as such:

"I have publicly stated that I have removed myself from the issue, and I don't plan to change that for any reason. For this issue to be resolved, and for it to be legitimate, the community must, on its own, without any interference from me, take it upon itself to make their desire heard. If this means that the community takes some type of action, and the results of this action makes it clear to me that the community largely has a particular desire, I will, to the extent that my view, actions, or involvement in any way may impact this, will respect the results of that community action."

This thread serves that purpose. You should all realize that this has never happened before so there is no "official protocol" beyond which is outline in this thread. There is no requirement that only a moderater or a sitting president could hold such a referendum. The only requirement is that the community speak.

The only implication to holding a thing like this is that it could come from Max, because that would be improper, as he has acknowledged, for reasons most people readily understand.

IF ANYONE HAS ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT WHETHER THIS THREAD IS THE OFFICIAL REFERENDUM, you should direct them to Airmax, where he will explain to you that this is the official thread, and he will respect and recognize whatever decision the community comes to.

**********PROCEDURE:**********

All DDO members are eligible to vote once, subject to compliance with the TOS. That means that while you may not multi-account (and this will be checked), if you have an account, your voice counts. This is designed to ensure the most fairness and greatest representation. Objections to this requirement are moot, because this is the protocol.

Just because you are eligible does not mean that you are required to vote. You may vote, or you may not vote.

Voting will begin at the posting of this thread, and will end exactly at 11:59:59 DDO Time (Central Time) in one week, on July 20, 2016. All votes cast within that time frame by valid account holders will be counted. Members may vote once, and may not change your vote, just like the elections.

Vote counts may be periodically posted by me, YYW, or by other members. I will tabulate the final results, however.

Please select ONE of the two options described below, and bold your vote.

**********THE SOLE ISSUE BEFORE US IS WHETHER TO KEEP OR ABOLISH THE PRESIDENCY**********

The sole issue here is whether to keep or abolish the presidency. There are two options:

(1) F UCK EVERYTHING

or

(2) F UCK IT ALL

If the "F UCK EVERYTHING" camp receives the majority, then there'll seriously be no difference so who the Hell cares about an imaginary position of authority on a debating site???

If the "F UCK IT ALL" camp receives the majority, then there'll seriously be no difference so who the Hell cares about an imaginary position of authority on a debating site???

Many people, including the sitting president himself who campaigned on this happening, have expressed strong desires to hold a referendum. Here it is.

Voting begins now.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

You didn't say that to anyone else. Now it's confirmed: you keep acting like you hate me. Is it because you don't want the scandal to get out, of our sweet and passionate love?
