Fellow Federalists,

I have been an active member since November of 2015. I remember back in the days of November, when there was little activity and I was called upon to be a candidate for the Southern Assembly. I won that election, and then I became Speaker shortly after entering that office. We got a lot of things done back then. A lot of things got done back then. We worked together, bipartisanly to change our region for the good, and we did

2018-03-30 15:50:22 UTC  

I did the same thing in the new House. I was elected to the first House, and became Majority Leader. We again set a standard for the House in that Congress, under my leadership. I was then elected to the 7th, 8th, and 9th Congresses and I was Majority Leader, and we worked with opposition parties to advance our platform, we worked bipartisanly again. My opponent, fairbol criticizes me somehow implying that “I’m not a bold defender of liberty”. I agree with him on the need to curb government spending, but he’s lying about my record. I want to give the Southern region a choice between an experienced candidate, or an inexperienced candidate.

2018-03-30 15:50:36 UTC  

As Governor of the South, I will work with the legislature to get many real kitchen table issues taken care of. We’ll fix runaway government spending by funding a private investigation into our agencies and such to show us where we need to cut, to show us where the waste is. We’ll fix the economy so a hardworking Atlasian doesn’t have to work two or three jobs to just get by, that’s disgraceful. We’ll let every hardworking person in our region get a shot- we’ll encourage immigration, we’ll encourage our region to be much more environmentally friendly. I believe a platform of compassionate conservatism and bipartisanship is what is needed for our region. If you want policy over rhetoric, I’ll be a great governor. I ask that you endorse me for those following reasons. I’ll change the South, and to correct fairbol: I’m not the status quo candidate, I’m the results candidate. I don’t back down from my positions, and I won’t fail you.

2018-03-30 15:50:45 UTC  

Is that a good request to the Federalist Party to endorse me?

2018-03-30 18:15:41 UTC  

well, it's going to be a primary between you and fairbol

2018-03-30 18:15:53 UTC  

and you'll get moderates

2018-03-30 18:16:04 UTC  

while fairbol gets conservatives

2018-03-30 18:16:17 UTC  

I think I can pull off some conservatives too though. But hm. Who do you think is favored to win

2018-03-30 18:16:40 UTC  

honestly, it's anyone's game rn

2018-03-30 18:17:00 UTC  

it'll depend on turnout

2018-03-30 18:17:13 UTC  

and who sends better pms

2018-03-30 18:17:24 UTC  

Yeah I’ll probably send my pms out tonight or tomorrow to the federalist voters

2018-03-30 18:17:39 UTC  

Honestly I think I can win the general the primary is the only thing that phases me

2018-03-30 18:18:17 UTC  

yep, but if you lose, you can still run for senate in april

2018-03-30 18:18:31 UTC  

since Mr. R is going to the senate early

2018-03-30 18:18:47 UTC  

or you can run for CoD

2018-03-30 18:18:57 UTC  

maybe the house might need you

2018-03-30 18:19:23 UTC  

I wouldn’t run for a Delegate seat, maybe the Senate. I dunno yet but yeah, I’m still hoping I win the Governorship. If no other candidate enters I thought about running as an Independent Federalist

2018-03-30 18:19:34 UTC  

But peebs is gonna run so I ain’t gonna be no spoiler

2018-03-30 18:20:04 UTC  

well with ranked choice voting, there isn't the spoiler effect of RL elections

2018-03-30 18:20:50 UTC  

Oh yeah. Maybe I’ll do that then. But I hope I win the primary. I’m gonna send out some pms to federalists followed by the old labor coalition that was down here

2018-03-30 18:21:15 UTC  

and what do you think of my Lincoln Beer Party idea

2018-03-30 18:21:24 UTC  

as a regional party

2018-03-30 18:21:52 UTC  

since Lincoln definitely didn't get the government it was promised

2018-03-30 18:22:01 UTC  

It actually seems nice. I wanna see more third parties pop up even though I’m a federalist I think it’s a great idea. I don’t know how to help but I would like to help with that idea.

2018-03-30 18:22:46 UTC  

well regional parties are different entities than national parties

2018-03-30 18:24:07 UTC  

I would still be a fed

2018-03-30 18:24:38 UTC  

but regional parties are aimed at regional level issues and concerns

2018-03-30 18:24:52 UTC  

Yeah I know about the regional parties and stuff, but maybe a regional party here wouldn’t be that bad. I’m still running in the fed primary for now though but that sounds nice

2018-03-30 18:25:39 UTC  

I see that the south had a Liberal Justice Party and a Southern Liberty Coalition

2018-03-30 18:25:47 UTC  

that both went inactive

2018-03-30 18:25:56 UTC  

Yeah. Maybe one wouldn’t be so bad here

2018-03-30 18:26:01 UTC  

And y’all only have the Lincoln democrats

2018-03-30 18:26:18 UTC  

regional parties are great to have

2018-03-30 18:26:34 UTC  

they are doing wonders for Fremont rn

2018-03-31 03:40:36 UTC  

I'm triggered!

2018-03-31 23:09:51 UTC  

Damn dip endorsed fairbol

2018-03-31 23:54:50 UTC  

The vote on the college bill angered some conservatives.

2018-03-31 23:55:22 UTC  

It reminds me of when me, Rowanbrandon and Jedi were Senators and we all voted for something statist
