It's a bit of fun, and may in extreme cases preserve individual liberties.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

1) We were allowed to own private property
2) We were allowed to have premarital sex.

We would never be able to agree on a form of government. We'd have to settle for a simple pure democracy.

Absolutely not. We would not handle democracy well.

We could like, split the country into quarters. But then the socialists would complain that all their companies were reloacting to the libertarian quarter, and they'd either have to come attack us or impose tariffs/emigration restrictions on their own people.

We'd also be reasonable enough to not listen to anything you say and/or shoot you in the face should you begin displaying such an attitude. :)

I agree. We're an intelligent lot. We could work it out.

There's only 5 girls active in the forums... We're not baby factories.

That's why I said we'd have to bring in some hot b*tches. Plus, I don't think I could live well in a nearly woman-less world.

I have a feeling that the girls from DDO would not get along with the "hot b*tches"... I don't do well when I'm surrounded by giggling females chatting about boys and make up... <gag>

I can just keep them in my house, then--indefinitely.

you skipped the step of giving a rimjob to the US to get use of the umbrella.

You don't have to be able to beat invading armies, you just have to make it not worth their while. So you can increase their cost by buying just enough defense, and you can decrease their benefit by destroying your wealth before they can get to it. Ex: threatening to drop dynamite down an oil well.

Slaughtering a bunch of innocent (white) people doesn't go down well for major governments. And at the end of the day, that's all they have.
